Digital Printers Demonstrate a Variety of Applications for Printing Materials for Graphic Arts and Architecture, Engineering and Construction

MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- FESPA Digital 2014 -- Memjet, the global leader in digital color printing technologies, today announced it will join OEM partners Canon, RTI Digital, LTD., and Gongzheng Technology at FESPA Digital 2014 on May 20, 2014 in Munich. At the event, Memjet's partners will demonstrate the digital capabilities of the Océ ColorWave 900, the Vortex 4200 series, and the Superprint PRO-A1060C printers, respectively.

Canon Europe will showcase the Océ ColorWave 900 at stand B1-310 throughout the event. Powered by Memjet technology, the Océ ColorWave 900 delivers a print resolution of 1600 dpi and is capable of printing at speeds of 1,100 square meters per hour. The Océ ColorWave 900 maintains productivity regardless of image content, ink coverage or media type, and is ideal for printing point-of-sale posters, exhibition and trade show displays, CAD and GIS.

RTI Digital will showcase the power and versatility of the Vortex 4200, powered by five Memjet print heads boasting 352,000 nozzles for drop on-demand thermal inkjet printing. Demonstrations will include a variety of applications to help expand opportunities in digital graphics and commercial printing, including high quality graphic arts signage and architectural drawings. RTI Digital will also demo the Vortex 850R with a built-in PC and full width camera, and the Vortex 851R, an entry-level label printer.

"As the demand for full colour graphics, and short runs, printed at faster speeds increases, more companies are looking to digital printing technologies to replace or augment traditional technologies such as litho, flexo or screen," says Peter Barton, director of EMEA business at RTI Digital. "We are the only company producing the full range of solutions using the Memjet technology across wide and narrow format. Our team will provide FESPA visitors with a look at what our Vortex range can offer to heighten productivity and quality in all these areas."

RTI Digital will also host a Reseller event to introduce its new Vortex Club, and a new version of its Liberty Printer Control Software, on May 21 at from 5:00 - 6:00pm CET. Taking place at booth B2-170, the event is open to members of the press.

Memjet partner Gongzheng will offer event attendees demonstrations in booth A1-345 of its PRO-A1060C printer in action, both for graphic arts and commercial images. The graphics will include POP signage, pull-up banners, blue prints, construction and related technical drawings, all printed with Memjet's waterfall printhead technology with speeds up to 18.3 meters per minute and resolution of 1600 x 800 dpi.

"Advanced digital printing technology offers unique opportunities for companies seeking high-quality, full-colour, commercially printed materials," said Mr. Chi, chairman of Gongzheng. "As we look to expand our reseller network across the globe, we're excited to show how the speed, clarity and flexibility of Memjet technology can build more revenue opportunities for businesses."

FESPA Digital 2014 begins May 20 in Munich. The four-day event will bring together business owners, printers and PSPs, as well as brands, agencies and advertisers to learn how digital technology can assist in expanding business opportunities and drive revenue growth.
