The Delphax elan 500 is a colour sheetfed inkjet press with the ability to produce up to 500 duplex letter images per minute or 3,750 SRA2 (450 x 640 mm) sheets per hour. The press is driven by Memjet print-head technology, whereby every stationary print-head on the elan 500 has 70,400 jets that produce up to 700-million drops of ink per second. The press delivers full CMYK colour and 1,600-dpi print resolution.

The elan 500 allows for printing on a range of substrates from weights of 20 to 130 Ibs (60 to 350 gsm) and formats of up to 8 x 8 to 18 x 25.2 inches (203 x 203 mm to 450 x 640 mm). Duplex printing is performed at full speed, explains Delphax, with no degradation due to the press’ SST paper path.

Engineered for a low capital acquisition and on-going running cost, Delphax explains the elan 500 combination of Memjet’s print heads and its own high-speed paper-handling technology is a production class sheet-fed printing system.

Designed for colour separation, the newest OpenColor version 2.0.6, according to GMG, holds the ability to dynamically create high-quality separation and preview profiles for Adobe Photoshop and HYBRID PACKZ software. For existing customers of OpenColor, the latest version offers a new function to calculate separations in a more flexible and convenient way via rules that can be applied to entire spot-colour libraries.

GMG OpenColor can connect to PACKZ, a PDF-based prepress software suite for professional package and label production, in order to bring dynamically created GMG profiles into other software. PACKZ, with OpenColor profiles, can re-separate jobs to reduce or optimize the number of plates used on press (replacing magenta with a spot colour or separate spot colours and overprints to a 7-color extended gamut printing process).

GMG ColorServer prepares data for a range of printing processes. It transforms fully automatically RGB, CMYK and mixed data to a single colour by means of separation, reseparation or colour conversion. The DeviceLink approach, according to GMG, avoids known drawbacks of ICC technology, such as reseparation of the black channel.

Return to list of Graphics Canada featured exhibitors

The HM308HN Dual Fit Grommet Press, according to Hiker, has one of the most trouble-free feeding systems in the market.  The machine is aimed at companies that insert less than 50,000 grommets per month. It is available with a static clutch (stationary foot pedal), or magnetic clutch (moveable foot pedal). The HM308HN feeds both grommet and washer. It uses self-piercing grommets and Hiker explains that having the grommets cut their own holes, leveraging a forcefull flywheel, eliminates the extra cost of purchasing and maintaining a separate hole-punch. A laser pointer is included with the HM308HN.

Hiker also explains the use of self-piercing grommets also means tips of the barrels on each grommet are sharper and the material is more rigid, which allows the grommets to cut their perfect sized holes, which provides the framework for a quality grommet setting with each insertion.
