As brand owners strive to reduce costs and time to market, they are looking for faster and more cost-effective ways to produce smaller lot sizes, for market testing, or to accommodate regional characteristics.
Brand owners are also working to reduce—or where possible, eliminate—packaging inventories, especially in highly regulated industries where packaging and labels may need to be frequently updated to comply with changing regulations.
Capitalizing on Market Trends
For package printers and converters, the challenge is to maintain a contemporary manufacturing platform that meets the needs of brand owners while lowering costs and raising efficiency.
The Presstek 75DI digital offset press is the most cost effective way to produce runs of 500 to 20,000 sheets on any offset stock (including labels). Stock thicknesses from 0.0016” to 0.031” (0.04mm to 0.8mm) are supported with the maximum sheet size being 31.02” x 23.62” (788mm x 600mm). The 75DI goes from digital file to sellable sheets in six minutes so you’ll easily be able to accommodate rush jobs while profitably producing versioned and short run jobs. The 75DI is an extremely efficient, high quality digital offset press that is the ideal solution for meeting—and exceeding—the requirements of today’s brand owners. A 52cm format DI press with aqueous coater is also available.
