Presstek 52DI-AC

The Presstek 52DI-AC builds on the precise registration, high-quality output, and automation of the Presstek 52DI by adding an in-line aqueous coater. With the Presstek 52DI-AC, coating is applied to sheets in one pass through the press without drying problems. Anilox metering precisely measures and controls the amount of coating being applied, reducing waste and further enhancing the quality of the printed sheet. Flood and spot coatings can be applied in a variety of finishes including matte, dull, satin and gloss.
