CHICAGO—The RYOBI MHI 925 press with LED-UV instant curing technology has earned a coveted MUST SEE ‘EM award in advance of Graph Expo 2014. The 5-color, 8-up press is the only entry to feature a highly advanced LED-UV curing unit fully integrated into the press.
The RYOBI 920 series with LED-UV delivers unmatched advantage for printers who need the versatility of instant cure, latest-generation automation and broad substrate capabilities—in a package that provides a lower total cost to print when compared with other 8-up presses.
Graphic Systems North America and RYOBI MHI will have hourly live presentations of the RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV press at Graph Expo 2014, Booth 4404, Sept 28-Oct. 1. Full details of the complete GSNA • RYOBI MHI • CRON exhibit will be announced this week.
Printers are urged to sign up early at ryobi-group.com/graph-expo.html to secure their personal, in-depth VIP demonstration of the press during Graph Expo.
“Printers who’ve seen, tested and installed the RYOBI MHI 920 series press with LED-UV say it’s the new standard in low-cost, extreme-quality printing across all substrates,” said Don Barbour, GSNA chairman and co-founder. “It delivers world-class 16-page signature printing with important environmental advances. Head-to-head with 40-inch presses equipped with hot UV, the RYOBI 920 series offers the lowest total cost to print in the market.”
RYOBI MHI and Panasonic pioneered LED-UV instant curing for offset printing more than six years ago and they have continuously refined the technology. Today, it’s regarded as the most advanced of its kind, with more than 130 installations worldwide.
The RYOBI MHI 920 series LED-UV press produces high value-added print on a wide variety of substrates including synthetics. It dramatically speeds up job delivery times and cuts the cost of plates, supplies and chemicals by an average of 30%. It slashes energy costs associated with drying by up to 80%. LED-UV instant curing emits no ozone, eliminates the need for noxious spray powders and generates virtually no heat in the pressroom.
Barbour noted that having LED-UV curing fully integrated into the RYOBI MHI press simplifies supplier relationships and reduces operational complexity. Other third party LED-UV systems require separate vendor interactions and service throughout the life of the press. RYOBI MHI warranties the entire press as one integral unit with the controls built right into the press.
“The RYOBI MHI 920 series with LED-UV is a press that profit-driven, quality-driven commercial printers can’t afford to miss,” Barbour said.
