|DSales launches new Develop mono production flagship system
DSales (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for the Develop range of production print imaging systems, has launched a new flagship mono production print system aimed at the commercial print and high volume in-plant sectors. The ineo 1250 provides high speed, reliable mono output with outstanding image quality for both fine line text and half-tones. This makes the ineo 1250 ideal for commercial print on demand applications, offering significant cost saving benefits over conventional cut sheet litho output in terms of plate making, pre-press set up and post print cleaning.
This highly versatile system can generate 7,500 A4 impressions per hour on substrates up to 350gsm card and SRA3 in size. This meets the print industry's preferred bleed size for media of SRA3 (320 by 450mm) allowing full size A3 documents with trim marks and A4 booklets to be trimmed to size. Print resolution is outstanding at 1,200 by 1,200 dpi using Develop's patented polymerised toner with smaller, smoother, uniform toner particles for more even distribution, significantly better fine line definition, and better solid fills.
The ineo 1250 is designed for average monthly volumes of between 400,000 and 750,000 printouts and will top the three million mark during peak times. Maximum paper capacity is 18,000 sheets so the ineo 1250 can run high volume jobs without the need for frequent operator intervention.
For online finishing the ineo 1250 offers a comprehensive range of modular options with a multitude of possible system configurations. Combinations of folding, punching, booklet making, perfect binding and staple finishing are all supported. Also available is a smart punch unit for GBC style binding that includes the availability of numerous customer replaceable die sets for plastic comb, velo bind, wire bind and so on. Large capacity trolley stacking units are available for off-line finishing.
As the ineo 1250 staples and punches at the full rated speed of 7,500 A4 impressions an hour there is no loss of speed for producing finished documents as against sheet production.
Importantly for the public sector and corporate customers seeking to ensure minimal environmental impact, the ineo 1250 conforms to the guidelines of the International Energy Star Program for reduced energy consumption and improved efficiency.
For DSales (UK) Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director stated, "The ineo 1250 is the product of Develop's policy of listening to customer feedback to ensure that new systems are developed to meet customer needs. Feedback has identified that mono production still accounts for the vast majority of printed output by CRDs, inplant print rooms, data centres and commercial printers. The ineo 1250 has been designed as a workhorse device for customer applications that still require production of large volumes of black and white documentation. The versatility, speed and robust duty cycle of the ineo 1250 make it the ideal system for our customers' mono production needs."
