basysPrint introduces new UV-setter 450x and 850x series
-providing innovative cross applications and dual plate loading productivity Helping the customers safeguard the future of their businesses, basysPrint, a division of Punch Graphix, recently announced its new series of 4-page and 8-page UV platesetters. The new UV-setter 450x and 850x series extend the success of basysPrint’s existing UV-setter 450 and 850 series, and give customers the opportunity to embrace new markets and cross applications. Using the new devices printers can now image in-house: UV plates for offset printing, coating plates for spot varnish printing, photoengraving magnesium or copper plates (up to 10 mm thick) for hot-foil stamping and embossing, screen meshes for all kinds of silk screen printing applications, and dies for flexible die-cutting. The UV-Setter 850x series deliver higher productivity through a dual plate loading capability that allows to process two plates (up to a maximum size of 445 x 1150 mm) at the same time. This means that the system can image up to 120 plates per hour (470 x 650 mm size). With the new graphical user interface, printers can manage and control their UV-setters also remotely, even by using Smartphone and tablet type devices.
“Our approach is to develop solutions that will secure the future of our customers’ businesses. The ability to provide an array of innovative applications that will differentiate their offering in an increasingly commodity based industry is of the utmost importance to printers. At basysPrint, we use the name ‘Cross Applications’ for these unique print effects such as spot varnishes, hot-foil stamping and embossing, as well as processes like die-cutting and screen printing. By enabling our customers to offer these cross applications in-house, we supply them with additional revenue streams and service levels to help them safeguard their continued success,” conveyed Christophe Lievens, director of sales and marketing.
Distributors and agents from around the world were given the chance to learn about the new UV-Setter 450x and 850x Series when they were unveiled at an event at basysPrint’s production plant in Belgium on June 6-7, 2011.
