At Connect 2013, MGI will highlight the Meteor DP8700 XL in live demos on the show floor. The Meteor series of digital presses are powered by Fiery® digital front ends for maximum productivity and processing speed, ideally suited for high-end production print environments demanding workflow automation and efficiency, variable data printing and industry-leading color management tools.
The most versatile digital press in the global graphics market, the Meteor DP8700 XL offers users key differentiators including the widest range of substrates (paper, plastics & envelopes), the largest sheet size among production sheetfed digital presses (up to 40" in production), laser-safe prints via oil-free, dry toner, no click charge and an economical total cost of operation, and a print resolution of 3600 DPI / 270 LPI with 25 different line screens (including stochastic), including the ability to select 2 different line screens within the same job.
A new feature for the MGI Meteor DP8700 XL at this year’s event will be full demos integrated with EFI’s Digital StoreFront Web-to-Print eCommerce Software in the Connect Solutions Center. This combination not only showcases the ease of integrating the Meteor with EFI’s MIS/ERP solutions, but also how graphic arts professionals can easily take advantage of the Meteor’s differentiating capabilities to expand their applications and better serve their customers.
