MGI Digital Graphic Technology this week will make the worldwide debut of its new Meteor DP8700 XL toner-based press during the Graphitec exhibition in Paris. The press’ North American debut is scheduled for Chicago this September, during Graphic Expo 2011.
 
Described by MGI as a true multi-substrate press (paper, plastics and envelopes, laser-safe prints), the 4-colour Meteor DP8700 XL has a printing-format size of up to 13 x 40 inches, while a format of 13 x 47 inches can be reached via manual bypass. The machine’s imaging area reaches from 12.6 inches up to 39.8 inches.



The new model is rated with a higher production speed for up to 4,260 A4-letter pages per hour and up to 2,280 A3 pages per hour. MGI also describes the image quality of the DP8700 XL as reaching 3,600 dpi (8-bit printing) and more than 20 line-screen variations ranging from 95 to 270 lpi. Users can choose up to two different line screens within the same print job.



The DP8700 XL also employs new silicone-free dry toners (CMYK) with a smaller particle size relative to previous Meteor models, while cartridges can be changed on the fly without interrupting production.
