Reality show

Apex Digital Graphics and Intelligent Finishing Systems’ (IFS) successful co-operation will continue to offer printers real-life production and performance benefits in 2017 with “The Real Print and Finish Open House” on March 14th, 15th and 16th at Apex’s premises in Hemel Hempstead.

Visitors can see an impressive array of equipment including an SRA1 RMGT (Ryobi) four colour press with live LED-UV drying during the event. RMGT (Ryobi) have historically been both innovators and market leaders in LED-UV drying technology with 11 of these presses installed in the UK.

Apex is UK-launching a brand new compact CtP system from Cron at the event. The Cron 26H combines autoload, platesetter and bridge/punch in a unique 3-in-1 solution for the highest productivity and smallest footprint. It can be seen alongside the conventional Cron 36 UVP system. Cron has invigorated short run litho by enabling the rapid production of a four colour plate set for as little as £1 per plate. Apex will also show a machine from Konica Minolta’s Production Print range.

IFS will show a wide range of high quality finishing equipment. Horizon machines will include the hugely successful Stitchliner 5500 stitching line along with the very latest equipment for perfect binding, automatic folding, bookletmaking (including A4 landscape) and three edge trimming. IFS will also show B2 and B3 Foliant laminators with the foiling options that have proved so popular.

Also confirmed for the event are mailroom equipment suppliers KAS, and punching and binding specialists Renz. Imprint will also show its market leading MIS solutions with real-time connections to the equipment on show. A wide gamut of pressroom products and consumables are available from CyanX and Graphic Arts Supplies, who will also be participating.

The IPIA will be present, offering free consultations with business experts via pre-booked appointments, and visitors will also benefit from specially selected “Real Deal” event promotions. By arrangement visitors can bring their own jobs and get hands-on advice to optimise their efficiency and profitability.

More partners are expected to announce their participation in the coming weeks.
The Open House will run from 10:00am to 5:00pm each day. For further info and registration, see www.realprintandfinish.com

LED-UV continues to make waves in the world of litho

The advent of LED-UV has been one of the most significant developments in litho printing for many years, as printers have woken up to the benefits of instant, clean, eco-friendly drying.


• Available in all formats • Instant on/off • Instant drying • Long life • Low heat
• 88% lower power consumption compared to conventional UV • No spray powder • Ozone free • Mercury free

Ryobi was the first offset press manufacturer to introduce a genuine LED-UV curing system, not simply a low-power version of conventional UV, as offered by some other manufacturers.
