I swear by my: Ryobi 755 WD
Friday, February 13, 2009
We tend to invest in technology rather than large numbers of people. Ryobi wasn't on my initial list of likely press manufacturers, but the B2-plus 755 caught my eye.
It can print up to 15,000 sheets per hour on stock thicknesses of up to 0.6mm as standard. Its JDF compatibility is an important issue for us, as we only have a team of five staff. The press is configured to print alcohol-free using vegetable-based inks. We also have fully automatic plate changing; IVS ink-volume setter software, which takes ink profile data from the digital front-end; PDS print density control; program inking; plate register remote control; and automated wash-ups. We specified the machine with an inline coater, and we will use the fifth printing unit to add a sealer on jobs that do not require a specific, decorative coating.
