M Partners brings MGI Meteor DP 8700XL to the UK

Published Tuesday, 13 September, 2011

M Partners is to launch MGI's Meteor DP 8700 XL into the UK with a technology demonstration taking place at the distributor's Hemel Hempstead facility this month.

The open house, scheduled for 20-21 September, will showcase the offset quality print of the French manufacturer's digital press, which produces 3600dpi print.

It can print a maximum sheet size of 330x650mm in its standard specification, but has an optional configuration to print sheets 40in (1020mm) in length and at speeds of up to 4,260 A4 pages per hour. It can handle paper up to 350gsm as well as plastic, polycarbonate, vinyl and PET substrates as well as envelopes.

M Partners joint managing director Murray Lock said: "We are already delighted with the positive reaction that we have received regarding this new release. The lack of a click charge appeals to many businesses, while the ability to print onto plastics and envelopes as well as paper and card is of great interest to printers who are looking for a wider range of digital printing opportunities."

It can use any of 25 regular and stochastic line screen choices for different types of print and including two simultaneously to cope with text and images.
