Elcorsy Technology Inc. (Montreal) has sold the first unit of its digital printing press based on the technology of elcography to Toyo Ink (Tokyo). The ELCO 400 electronic press prints a 250-page book or a 64-page color newspaper in less than 5 seconds directly from computer.

Elcography is the result of 17 years of R&D, and Elcorsy’s electronic presses are said to be at least 10 times faster than anything that exists on the market. Elcography inks are also water-based and have no odors.

Toyo Ink will use the digital press to print instant newspapers at popular music shows and international sport events. The company also has projects to print personalized color schoolbooks.
