World's fastest toner-based digital press to be showcased in Oct. 18 demonstrations
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delphax Technologies Inc. (OTC:DLPX), a global provider of high-speed digital printing equipment, and Weihai Printing Machinery Co., Ltd., China's leading manufacturer of offset presses, today announced a strategic partnership for the introduction of industry-leading digital print production speed to the Chinese printing industry.
The two companies will highlight the WeiFeng2200 high-speed digital web press in demonstrations tomorrow, Oct. 18, at Weihai Printing Machinery Company headquarters in Weihai City, Shandong, China. The WeiFeng2200-an adapted version of the Delphax CR2200-is the fastest monochrome toner-based digital printer in the world, with throughput of 150 meters or approximately 2,200 pages per minute at 600 x 600 dpi print quality.
In its Weihai City introduction, the WeiFeng2200 will be the centerpiece of a fully integrated digital printing production line.
"Digital technology is shaping the future of printing, both as a supplement to and as an extension of existing production capabilities," said Gu Yonghui, general manager of Weihai Printing Machinery Company. "The rapid advances in digital speed and quality coincide with a growing demand within the Chinese printing industry for solutions that can be integrated with traditional high-quality offset and provide value-added capabilities such as short-run flexibility, print on demand and variable data printing.
"With our commitment to leadership and innovation in applied printing technology, we are excited to partner with one of the prime developers of digital printing technology. Our arrangement with Delphax Technologies represents our entry into the field of high-speed digital printing-an important addition to our comprehensive offering of offset printing equipment. It combines the unique strengths of a digital printing pioneer with Weihai Printing Machinery Company's many years of manufacturing experience, our comprehensive offering of offset printing equipment and our professional sales force to more effectively satisfy customer needs within a variety of business models."
The partnership also represents Delphax Technologies entree to the Chinese market.
"We're delighted to be able to announce our first major business partnership in China through our association with Weihai Printing Machinery Company," said Dieter Schilling, Delphax Technologies president and chief executive officer. "Weihai Printing Machinery Company is one of the top printing equipment suppliers in China and very well recognized and respected in the printing industry. It has a leading engineering and manufacturing team, an effective customer service team and an extensive customer base.
"We have high confidence in Weihai Printing Machinery Company's ability to develop new markets and provide excellent customer service. This partnership will be instrumental in opening the Chinese market to Delphax Technologies high-speed digital technology. We look forward to working closely with Weihai Printing Machinery Company in introducing the advantages of high speed and high efficiency of digital technology to the Chinese market."
The WeiFeng2200 uses Delphax Technologies unique and patented electron-beam imaging (EBI) technology, which ensures consistent print quality at unmatched toner-based production speeds on a wide range of untreated substrate materials, from extremely lightweight paper to heavy card stock. The technology provides streamlined handling of large amounts of data and graphics with great speed, accuracy and economy. As a result, the WeiFeng2200 makes it possible for customers to handle a wide range of books and booklets, legal/financial documents, packing inserts, direct mail materials and other commercial printing applications. Every document can be personalized without compromising the speed, quality or productivity of high-volume print runs. The WeiFeng2200 is, in short, a high-speed, high throughput, robust, easily maintainable industrial digital printing device.
