RDP Marathon's offset-based SR series of high-speed, variable repeat combination web presses are said to enable direct-mail printers to facilitate shorter runs and fast turnaround. Combination web press technology allows process printing and provides features such as spot adhesives, varnish and scratch-off coatings inline with interchangeable printing inserts, in hybrid configurations of litho, flexo, screen, waterless and gravure technologies. Custom options include pattern perforation, diecutting, hot stamping and embossing. The press can handle substrates ranging from 12 micron film to 14 pt. paperboard. Smart-Set 2000, RDP's Windows-based press control system, provides single-point remote control on all press functions.
