DI Press - Presstek 52DI® Digital Offset Printing Press

Presstek 52DI is among the most efficient, productive and profitable digital offset printing presses ever brought to market in the 52cm landscape format size. This highly automated four-color digital offset press consistently produces sellable sheets in approximately 10 minutes with up to 300 lpi and FM screening on a broad range of substrate thicknesses up to 20pt, increasing capabilities, throughput, and profitability. Job profitability is 13 percent higher on a DI compared to a conventional press, and compared to a toner-based digital device, the DI press saves 50 percent on average per letter size page. The Presstek 52DI has a maximum sheet size of 20.47 x 14.76 inches and produces up to 10,000 sheets per hour.

Automated Printing

The DI auto print system streamlines the entire printing process, from plate advancing and imaging to printing and cleaning. Presstek's DI imaging technology, combined with a central impression cylinder and single gripper system, result in precise registration every time. Makereadies take ten minutes.

Compact and Environmentally Friendly Press Design

The unique design of Presstek DI presses offers a significantly smaller footprint than a conventional four-color press and its required platemaking solution. Presstek DI presses fit easily into any print shop. And best of all, with no film, off-press imaging equipment or intermediate processing steps, you save time, labor, floor space, and money with absolutely no compromise in quality. DI also eliminates the inconsistencies and environmental concerns that are normally associated with chemistry-based imaging and alcohol-based dampening systems.


With a push of a button, easily produce line screens up to 300 lpi or FM screening in precise register. Presstek DI presses are also waterless, which means the problems associated with ink/water balance are eliminated, better color saturation is achieved, you’ll print with less dot gain, and a larger color gamut can be printed.

Efficient Digital Workflow

The Presstek DI press integrates seamlessly into Macintosh and Windows workflows. Files are RIP'ed directly to the press; text, images and imposition can be checked on the DI’s on-press monitor or by using a hardcopy proofing solution.

Coming Soon! Eco-UV for Presstek DI Presses (download brochure)

UV printing increases the range of materials that can be printed and accelerates production with even shorter time-to completion. Requiring significantly less power than standard UV, this new Eco-UV option incorporates UV lamps on press in the delivery system, reducing the floor space requirements and complementing the compact footprint of DI presses.
