MAN Roland (Westmont, IL) is making its first appearance at CeBIT (to be held in Hanover, Germany, March 13-20), networking its DICOpress to various content-management and Internet-connectivity solutions.
DICOpress provides high-performance direct-to-press (DTP) capabilities, enabling printers to produce on-demand, variable data and short-run color projects. The system runs at the rate of 138 letter-size impressions per minute or 8,280 pages per hour.
The DICOpress demonstration at CeBIT will demonstrate versioning, one-to-one printing and online print ordering. Content management will be expedited by the OPAS-G system developed by Germany’s OKS Software. Meanwhile, the iWay family of solutions from Systematics AG will facilitate Internet ordering and connectivity.
Web-fed, DICOpress is available in both 12.5-inch and 20-inch web widths, and features variable cutoffs to produce a wide variety of printed products. It utilizes built-in color management routines and its laser-based imaging system ensures the precise placement of every dot. All output is immediately ready for finishing or further conversion, as it comes off the press.
