Presstek, Inc., a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with PrintPress, to distribute the Presstek 52DI and 34DI digital offset press portfolio. PrintPress is headquartered in Bogota, Colombia.
“I witnessed the capabilities of these presses firsthand at Graph Expo in Chicago and was truly impressed. I am thrilled to add Presstek’s family of DI digital offset presses to our product mix,” said Fabian Ruiz, President of PrintPress. “Presstek DI presses bring great success to print providers in North America and Europe. I believe they will be equally attractive within our region where printers are facing the same challenge of delivering increased quality in affordable shorter run lengths with compressed delivery times. The Presstek 34DI and 52DI easily meet all of these challenges and will help printers in Colombia to be more capable, profitable and competitive in a crowded market.”
Presstek 52DI digital offset presses offer printers the most profitable solution for meeting the demand for quick turnaround, high quality color printing in runs from 500 to 20,000. Capable of printing on a broad range of substrates from .0024” to .02” (0.06 mm to 0.5 mm) thick, the DI supports up to 300 lpi (120 l/cm) and FM screening without incurring additional time or expense. These highly automated Presstek DI presses combine the efficiency of an all-digital workflow with the versatility and high quality of offset printing. The Presstek 52DI, a 52cm landscape format press, has a maximum sheet size of 20.47” x 14.17” (520 x 375 mm) and produces up to 20,000 letter-size pages per hour.
The Presstek 34DI digital offset press offers the same benefits as the 52DI in a 34cm portrait format press, it has a maximum sheet size of 13.39” x 18.11” (340 x 460 mm) and produces up to 14,000 letter-size pages per hour.
“We are pleased to be partnering with PrintPress in Colombia, an area of growing importance for Presstek’s business,” said Stephen Brower, Presstek’s Director of Sales for the Latin American Region. “Mr. Ruiz and his company are well-respected and ideally suited to market Presstek DI presses to its large and growing customer base. We are looking forward to working with Mr. Ruiz and his team in the region.”
