Ryobi MHI Graphic Technology Ltd. is running live LED-UV press demonstrations at both Graph Expo 15 & IGAS 2015 (Tokyo)
MARIETTA, GEORGIA — August 25, 2015 — Graphic Systems North America (GSNA), the authorized reseller for RYOBI MHI Graphic Technology Ltd (RMGT) offset presses in North America, announces that the RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV Press has received the prestigious MUST SEE ‘EMS award in connection with GRAPH EXPO 15. Recognized as “Best of Category” for the Offset Pressroom, this 5-color, 8-up press, featuring LED-UV curing and SMART RPC technology, will be running live demonstrations during Graph Expo, on Sept 13-16, 2015 in Booth #4213.
“Our customers are validating the benefits of the RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV Press with SMART RPC technology,” states Don Barbour, GSNA chairman and co-founder. “One of the benefits they mention is how simultaneous plate changing shortens make-ready and closes the ‘cost-of-manufacturing gap’ between high quality offset and high cost digital printing.” The annual MUST SEE ‘EMS competition recognizes the most compelling new products being introduced at Graph Expo and is presented by the show’s producer, the Graphic Arts Show Company.
In the midst of a record year in North America, RMGT will offer live press demonstrations on two continents, simultaneously, at the Printing Industry’s two major trade shows. “Our Commit to Print message resonated so well last year that despite the obvious challenges of presenting two major exhibitions on two continents on the same week we decided to go for it,” states Don Barbour. “Our pre-show registrations are up significantly over last year and the response from customers ready to see ink on paper again has been tremendous.”
Continuing to grow their global presence, RMGT will exhibit at both IGAS 2015 (International Graphic Arts Show), from Sept. 11-16, 2015 in Tokyo, and Graph Expo 15, from Sept. 13-16, 2015 in Chicago. Four full size presses will be exhibited in total making the RMGT global exhibition of offset printing equipment for 2015 truly powerful.
The RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV Press with SMART RPC technology delivers unmatched advantage for printers who need the versatility of LED-UV instant curing, latest-generation automation and broad substrate capabilities—in a package that provides the lowest total cost to print when compared with other 8-up presses. The SMART RPC Fully Automatic Plate Changer greatly shortens plate-changing time and reduces operator workload. Through simple touch panel operation, plate changing is automatically performed on all units simultaneously. This provides powerful support for frequent job changeovers and diverse small-lot printing.
