RMGT Showcasing 970PF-8+LED Long Perfector During PRINTING United Expo
RMGT, a manufacturer of an 8-up sheetfed offset press in North America, announces that they will be running live demonstrations of their flagship 970 8-UP+ press at the PRINTING United Expo. RMGT continues to “Commit to Print” with the only offset press at this year’s largest gathering for printers in North America held at the Atlanta Convention Center on Oct. 18-20, 2023.
“RMGT will debut the newly introduced 8-color RMGT 970 Long Perfector press with LED curing,” states Kian Hemmen, Director of Sales, Print & Finishing Solutions, Western US Distributor for RMGT. “Visitors will see that the efficiency of a perfecting press closes the gap on short run print jobs that are shifting from digital back to offset, and this same platform can easily produce 100,000 4/4 sheets in a single shift. That’s the equal of 200,000 impressions on a one-sided press and the cost improvement versus any single-sided output is remarkable.”
With the press running live demonstrations every hour of the show, RMGT will demonstrate how the new 8-UP+ RMGT 970 expands the successful 9 Series family of offset presses from RMGT that are the North American 8-UP market leader. Since 2014 more than 100 RMGT 9 Series presses have been installed in North America. The RMGT 970 perfecting offset press features the latest in offset press technology such as ASAP (autonomous print production & 4-5 minute job changeovers), 15,000 SPH perfecting speed, and instant LED curing. These features allow over 80% of RMGT 9 Series presses to run with a single pressman, which saves more than $50,000 worth of labor cost per shift annually.
“We are extremely proud of RMGT’s commitment to live press exhibitions during each of the last 7 industry shows, and we had presses scheduled for the Atlanta and Orlando shows that were cancelled. At RMGT “Commit to Print” isn’t just a motto, it’s a real commitment,” states Chris Manley, President of Graphco, Midwest and Southeast Distributor for RMGT. “We are able to install this 8-UP+ Long Perfector for a three-day show due to the excellence of our service technicians, the compact footprint of the press, and outstanding design work RMGT put into this printing press.”
“The new 8-UP+ 970 press is RMGT’s latest design and is now the flagship for our company’s fleet of machines. The user interface is far and away the most intuitive and easiest to operate, and this feature is more important than ever to attract younger press operators,” states Hemmen. “For commercial printers who once only considered a 40” press, the 970’s 25” x 38” sheet size now brings more than 90% of all jobs within reach, and at a very attractive price point. The 970’s ability for single-pressman operation along with a much higher level of automation establishes the RMGT 970 as the clear winner in the profitability battle.”
RMGT will be in booth B1932 in Building B of the Atlanta Convention Center. For free registration to this event, click here.
