DI 46-4 Plus
Printing in the
New Millennium – the Quickmaster DI 46-4 in a Digital Environment
In the 21 st century,
digital production routines will drive processes in the graphic arts
industry. Global standards and data networks spanning the whole world
enable the exchange of printing data across all continents. Digital
offset printing takes place within virtually unbounded communication
networks. Exchange of digital data without restrictions and without
sacrificing quality–globe-spanning networks like the Internet or high-speed
networks like WAM!NET offer previously unknown possibilities. Services
can be offered across large distances, and bids, orders, and job data
sent in seconds to the remotest corners of the earth. Print on demand
and distributed printing have appeared as new possibilities.
– Because Practical Needs Vary Widely
The flexibility of the Quickmaster DI 46-4 starts with the inks you
can use. The Quickmaster DI will print all commercially available waterless
offset inks. The Quickmaster DI 46-4 also gives you maximum flexibility
for selecting different stocks. From thin 60 gsm label paper to Chromolux
board 0.3 mm (0.012 ”) thick, you can use virtually any weight and grade.
Even preprinted and prefinished materials such as envelopes are easy
to print on the Quickmaster DI 46-4. The Quickmaster DI also offers
you flexibility for choosing different sheet sizes. From four-color
postcards to posters slightly larger than A3 – no matter what you would
like to print, the Quickmaster DI is ideal for a vast array of different
products. Although the Quickmaster DI 46-4 is best-suited for short
runs of between 200 and 5,000 copies, it also handles longer runs with
ease. A top production speed of 10,000 sheets per hour and masters you
can use to print 20,000 impressions let you run them effortlessly.
The Press – Compact
The Quickmaster DI is a sheetfed offset printing press for the 34 x
46 cm format that meets all of the world market leader ’s quality criteria.
Its satellite design with four printing units also makes it particularly
compact. The Quickmaster DI 46-4 is characterized by a compact design
and precision engineering down to the tiniest detail. Owing to its small
dimensions, it is also excellently suited for use in print shop environments
where space is at a premium. Its design and workmanship ensure that
it retains its value, and are reflected in the quality of items printed
with it. Numerous innovative features combine to turn out first-class
products. Together with the drive train featuring helical ears and bearer-on-bearer
running of the plate and blanket cylinders, the solid design of the
press meets the prerequisites for precise halftone dots, long service
life, and high productivity.
The waterless printing process of the Quickmaster DI 46-4 allows you
to achieve uncompromising offset quality. All functions are easy to
operate from the central control console –plate imaging at the press
of a button. The printing units are equipped with unique plate cylinders,
each of which has an integrated master cassette. Each supply reel contains
enough material for 35 successive print jobs. After the plates are changed,
all four masters are simultaneously imaged in precise register without
requiring any intervention by the operator. Presetting of inking is
also automatic. Based on the RIPped data, the job specific ink profile
for all four colors is calculated and relayed to the CP ink fountains
for presetting the ink zones. This ink presetting helps substantially
reduce startup waste. Owing to the high degree of automation, it takes
less than ten minutes from the start of imaging to get the first printed
sheet into the delivery.
