Presstek to Unveil 75DI
Presstek Inc. plans to demonstrate its new 75DI offset press at the May 2010 IPEX tradeshow in Birmingham, UK. The first North American showing of the press is scheduled to take place later this year in Chicago, during Graph Expo.

The press has a maximum print speed of 16,000 sheets per hour, as well as a maximum paper size of 788 x 600 mm (31.02 x 23.62 inches), a minimum paper size of 279 x 200 mm (10.98 x 7.87 inches), and a maximum print area of 760 x 580 mm (29.53 x 22.83 inches). The press can print on stocks ranging from 0.04 to 0.6 mm (0.0016 to 0.024 inches) in thickness.
After its beta program, which is set to begin in June 2010, the press is to be launched in 4-, 5- and 6-colour configurations, plus an optional coater. Commercial availability of the 75DI is expected prior to the end of 2010.
