15 Nov What You Missed from RMGT at PRINT18
Thanks for joining us for our tenth anniversary of the launch of LED-UV curing technology for offset presses. Check out our recap to see how automated technologies have made the RMGT 9 series press the dominant choice for the 8-up offset press market, with over 700 presses installed worldwide.
Offset is more alive than ever before. We’ve been saying “Commit to Print” for years now and we stand by that statement. At Print 18 this year, we were proud to show our customers a glimpse of what print will be able to accomplish now and in the future with the advent of Augmented Reality.
Our Biggest Poster Giveaway
Our Poster Giveaway of the Secrets of the Human Body was our most successful poster release ever. Using Spot UV and having multiple Interactive AR sections, it drew lots of attention and found its way into tons of our customers take home bags.
The Newest Advancements in LED-UV Technology
LED-UV curing provides much quicker turnaround times. Since ink instantly cures as the sheet comes off the press, there’s absolutely no waiting time between either running a second pass or directly moving a job to finishing. And, since LED-UV inks and varnishes are 100% cured straight after the LED-UV lamp, messy and costly coatings are completely eliminated. More importantly sheets can be folded, cut and bound immediately after printing, which notably decreases lead times to end-customers. Significantly higher press speeds yields higher production levels, and we all know that this translates to more profit.
Offset Quality at Digital Quantity
The RMGT 9 series press provides ease of operation, super quick make-readies of under 3 minutes, swift speeds of 16,000 sheets per hour even when printing on 2 sides of the sheet, and instantly cures sheets as soon as they arrive at delivery. The RMGT 9 series press can actually print 8-Up, 16 page signatures, on two sides on one single sheet in under 10 minutes. It would take much longer to produce the exact same job on the fastest Digital Machines out there… and at a considerably higher cost. A HP 12,000 could do this in 40 Minutes and the new J Press could do it in 35. The perfector also only runs at 13,000 SPH, not 16,000.
