Plate changing is a key factor in determining makeready time. The SMART RPC Fully Automatic Plate Changer greatly shortens plate changing time and reduces operator workload. Through simple touch panel operation, plate changing is automatically performed on all units simultaneously. This provides powerful support for frequent job changeovers and diverse small-lot printing.
INSTA.COLOR—which stands for Integrated Smart Technology and Automation for Color Print—represents the latest evolution of more than a decade of RMGT's Smart inking technology, color control and makeready automation. INSTA.COLOR makes color control highly efficient, intuitive and productive—coming up to sellable color in as few as 25 sheets and driving makereadies to six minutes.
RMGT's PDS-E SpectroDrive scanners with closed-loop print density monitoring technology assure precise PMS colors from start to finish. Production is alcohol-free. INSTA.COLOR enables on-press color adjustments as needed. Customer press checks can be nailed down to the exact density that clients expect—without the restrictions other color management technologies put on pressroom control. Color on gang-run jobs can be adjusted in various zones on the sheet for assured customer OK.
The RMGT LED-UV is an available option on all RMGT offset presses. The LED-UV dries printed sheets instantly, and offers impressive energy savings with superior ease of use. This system greatly reduces energy consumption and also features a much longer lifespan than conventional lamp perfecting systems. The LED-UV is completely powderless and produces zero ozone pollution, making it very eco-friendly.
SHORTER LEAD TIMES With no need to wait for printed sheets to dry, work can immediately move on to subsequent processes No space is needed to store printed sheets while they dry
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY Powderless printing ensures a cleaner work environment LED-UV ink is recyclable and easily removable Lower energy consumption leading to reduced CO2 emissions Birmingham Printing's Commitment To Environment-Friendly Print
CONSISTENT PRINT QUALITY No set-off, so printed sheets can be stacked immediately after printing No color changes due to dry-down No problem with powder dropping on to printed sheets
COMPATIBLE WITH SPECIAL MEDIA Printing is possible on resin film, synthetic paper, metalized paper, and other types of special media
GREATLY REDUCED POWER CONSUMPTION LED-UV uses 1/8th of the power a conventional UV lamp system needs Light source can be instantly switched on/off to suit the operating status, reducing power consumption during job turnover
NO OZONE SMELL No need to install deodorizing equipment or exhaust ducts LED-UV systems can be used in congested areas
NO INFRARED LIGHT LED-UV perfectors produce no infrared light, so the unit generates much less heat Printed sheets do not shrink due to heat The LED-UV system is compatible with resin film and other media
LONG LIFE Conventional UV Lamp Systems = 1,000 to 3,000 lifetime hours LED-UV Systems = 15,000 lifetime hours UV lamp systems must remain lit during job changeover, the LED-UV system can be switched off
