The Fastest Meteor Super Format Digital Press Ever at Drupa

MGI to Launch the Fastest Meteor Super Format Digital Press Ever at Drupa 2016

Published Thursday, 12 May, 2016

New High-Speed Meteor DP1000 Digital press Offers 100 ppm, 18pt Substrate Thickness and 47″/1200 mm Sheet Capabilities with Inline Finishing Options

FRESNES, France (May 12th, 2016) – MGI Digital Technology has announced the worldwide release of the new high-production Meteor DP1000 digital press. The DP1000 is the sixth generation of MGI Meteor digital presses and now complements the existing DP8700 XL+ and DP8700 S+ solutions for a powerful full range of production presses with high-speed, plastic, synthetic & paper substrate and application diversity.

The range of supported size formats goes up to 13×47 inches. This extremely long format capability, unique in the market of high-volume digital printing, allows for the production of panoramic 5 panel gatefold documents such brochures, signs and banners on substrate stocks ranging from 80 to 450 gsm/ m².

Light Board Package Printing Capability

The ability to print on stocks on stocks with 18 pt. thickness and weights of 450 gsm means that the Meteor DP1000 can produce brilliant colors on board stock for small to medium-sized folding carton and box designs. This will be a tremendous benefit for package printers searching for a high-speed solution with variable data printing (VDP) options, as well as commercial printers seeking a cost-effective path to enter the world of packaging.

Worldwide Release @ Drupa 2016

The Meteor DP1000 will be demonstrated live at the MGI (Hall 5, Booth 21) at the upcoming drupa 2016 international print trade fair from May 31st to June 10th in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Unique High-Speed Press & PostPress Finishing Integration

The MGI Meteor DP1000 can be integrated inline with the MGI DF Pro solution for an inline solution combines a new unique high-performance (100 pg/m) digital printing press and finishing system in one package. The Meteor DP1000 & DF Pro product suite delivers fully printed and finished documents in a single pass, all completed on the same equipment. The Meteor DP1000 & DF Pro system also eliminates all the traditional extra worksteps, time and complications of moving output to different work environments for finishing and job completion.

Improved Job Productivity & Turnaround Times

The DP1000 & DF Pro solution can produce a remarkable variety of graphical output – including up to 20 different finishing functions for photos, advertisements, full bleed letterheads and direct mailing jobs that are already creased, cut and trimmed when they come off the press. It can even produce complex folding packages and documents with strike perforated finishes for knock-out, punch-piece components. This solution is designed for high-volume production environments with speeds up to 100 pg/min (including finishing) and a duty cycle of 1 million pgs. per month.

Drupa Press Conference

A Press Conference will be held on Tuesday May 31st at 3:00 PM to discuss new MGI corporate announcements, the growing Konica Minolta global alliance and new product strategies (Located in Room 8 of the Press Conference Centre – CCD South).

Standard Horizon will “Change the Focus” to Finishing at drupa 2016″

Andover, MA – Standard Finishing Systems will partner with Horizon International of Japan at the upcoming drupa event in Düsseldorf, Germany May 31 – June 10 to demonstrate the most comprehensive display of finishing equipment at the fairgrounds. Under the theme “Change the Focus,” Horizon will unleash the hidden value of post-press. The goal is to help our customers comprehend and plan finishing steps at the beginning of the print process, to enable end-to-end automation and production efficiency. Horizon’s 16,000 square foot booth will be the largest in Hall 6, and the single largest exhibit dedicated to post-press at drupa. Twenty-four working systems – including the world premieres of a new perfect binder and folder – will be organized into various zones featuring perfect bind, stitch, fold, and digital applications. Live presentations will also highlight four innovative Smart Finishing Solutions, each one capable of processing conventional and digitally printed output.

As Horizon’s exclusive North American distributor, Standard will demonstrate to its customers a different way to think about finishing. “Post-press should be front-of-mind when conceiving an efficient production workflow, but it’s often an afterthought,” says David Reny, Executive Vice President of Standard. “Customers who can zoom-up to see the complete life cycle of the printed product – from creation through finishing – will increase productivity and profitability in the long run. We’ll be showing intelligent in-line and near-line systems that offer flexibility and investment protection well into the future.”


Live Presentations Emphasize Smart Finishing

Six live presentations will be hosted daily in the Horizon theatre that will focus on finishing from the point of job creation for a efficiency, less waste, and much more. This is where Horizon will unveil the highly versatile, hybrid Smart Binding System. Click here to read full article
