New Presstek 75DI Configurations Available
At drupa, Presstek will

        --  Automatic Convertible Perfecting A perfecting device on the 75DI can
            be automatically converted between normal printing and perfecting,
            with minimal time loss for the conversion. Up to 10 towers can be
            included in the perfecting configuration.

        --  UV Curing and Coating A UV curing unit can be installed over the
            impression cylinder of each unit, making possible high-value-added
            printing on specialty substrates such as film, metalized paper and
            other non-absorptive media, as well as lenticular printing. An inline
            UV coater can be added as well, allowing for eye-catching high shine,
            abrasion resistant finishes.

        --  75DI Personalization Option Presstek will be offering printers the
            ability to add inkjet heads to the B2 format 75DI press. This new
            capability will enable printers to be more competitive with their
            variable data service offering. All 75DI presses with personalization
            capability will be specially configured to each client's needs.

The Presstek 75DI is a highly automated 29″ (75 mm) digital offset
