August 23, 2011  By

MGI Digital will be making tie North American debut of its new Meteor DP8700 XL press at Graph Expo this September

MGI claims the following benefits for the Meteor DP8700 XL:

    Largest sheet size among production sheetfed digital presses (up to 13 x 40″ in production, up to 13 x 47″ via manual bypass)
    Increased production speed for up to 4,260 A4/letter pages per hour and up to 2,280 A3 pages per hour
    Output quality at 3600 dpi (8 bit printing) and more than 20 line screen variations ranging from 95 to 270 lpi, plus stochastic. Users also have the option to choose up to 2 different line screens within the same print job.
    New auto-adjusting offset feeder table, which eliminates skew and keeps registration consistent at an industry-leading ±0.2mm (L-R)
    The new EnvelopExpress Pro, featuring an updated design for the Meteor DP8700 XL, increases production capabilities and improves job efficiency
    Fiery RIP for maximum processing power and graphics management. Support for VPS & PPML 2.2, plus Adobe PostScript Level 3, TIFF and PDF, JDF compliance, as well as APPE (Adobe PDF Print Engine).


MGI will also show off its JETcard inkjet press, which produces up to 8,000 cards per hour in full colour. The machine prints at 720 x2160 DPI with 4+2 UV colours, allowing for spot or flood UV coating or use of security inks. MGI claims the JETcard can replace up to five different pieces of equipment traditionally used in plastic card production. The company also claims it is not only cheaper than offset on a cost-per-card basis, but also faster than offset.

MGI will be showing the above technologies, as well as its other solutions at booth 3619.
