New offset press introduced by DG Press Services

September 19, 2011

The Vi-SOP for label and packaging printing is based on the Drent Vision press and has a width of 520 mm.

DG Press Services, based in Eerbeek, the Netherlands, has developed a new narrow web offset press that it will display at Labelexpo Europe 2011 in Brussels next week. The Vi-SOP is based on the Drent Vision press and has a width of 520 mm (20"). The company says it provides for short changeover times while maintaining all the abilities of a high speed printing press.

The Vi-SOP uses conventional offset printing plates, and its servo- driven impression cylinders are separately driven from the plate and blanket cylinders. Web tension between the printing units is arranged in such a way that even print on thinner foils results in 100 percent register printing, says the company.

Vi-SOP is available as an upgrade packaging for existing Vision presses, thus enabling the Vision to be utilized as packaging press. It is possible to convert the existing three cylinder groups so that the impression cylinder is driven separately in order to be able to print on high quality films in the existing formats.
At Labelexpo, DG Press Services will introduce the Vi-SOP at booth 11P132.
