|DSales launches enhanced Develop mono production flagship system
DSales the UK distributor for the Develop range of production print systems imaging systems, has launched an enhanced version of Develop's flagship mono production print system aimed at the commercial print and high volume in-plant sectors. The ineo 1250e provides high-speed, reliable mono output with outstanding image quality for both fine line text and half-tones. This makes the ineo 1250e 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 (125 ppm) 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 1250e is designed for average monthly volumes of between 400,000 and 750,000 prints and will top the three million mark during peak demand. Maximum paper capacity is 18,000 sheets so the ineo 1250e can run high volume jobs without the need for frequent operator intervention.
For online finishing the enhanced ineo 1250e offers a comprehensive range of modular options with even more possible system configurations. The new inline SD-513 finishing unit available for the ineo 1250e series allows users to automate the entire printing and finishing process, with for example fully automated creasing, three-edge trimming and spine corner forming. Additional finishing options include a kit for envelope printing and a decurler unit with an optional humidifier. Inline finishing reduces the time needed to handle jobs, improves lead times, saves staff time and reduces machine set-up times. Alternatively, large capacity trolley stacking units are available for off-line finishing.
As the ineo 1250e 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 1250e 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 enhanced ineo 1250e offers a range of versatile finishing options for fast end-to-end job throughput. We know that mono production still accounts for the vast majority of printed output by CRDs, inplant print rooms, data centres and commercial printers. The ineo 1250e has been designed as a workhorse device for customer applications that require production of large volumes of black and white documentation. The versatility, speed and robust duty cycle of the ineo 1250e make it the ideal system for our customers' mono production needs.
