TK17 ► The TK17 is a high-speed monochrome production web / continuous forms press that allows inkjet imaging to replace legacy toner continuous forms presses. The reduced operating costs of inkjet – and the elimination of required service contracts allows the variable imaging of marketing materials at ¼ the cost of roll-fed laser printers. The TK17 will run up to 500 fpm and integrate into existing bindery environments. The TK17 also features the optional invisible barcode tracking module for read-and-print operations inline with inserters.
8500 ► The 8500 brings the low-cost of production web inkjet to cut-sheet page printing. The 8500 utilizes an 8.5” inkjet print-head to produce full letter-size marketing letters at twice the speed of conventional laser printers at half the operational costs. Common operational scenarios are to utilize an 8500 sheet fed inkjet system on a transport which is inline with a folder – to produce folded letters between 10,000 and 20,000 per hour. The invisible barcode tracking module is also available.
PDF Workflow for Color Read-and-Print Systems ► For the first time in the industry, MCS has extended its inkjet PDF workflow to include the capability to have an inserter drive full-color envelope printing. Conventional or invisible 2D barcodes are read with the MCS Perfect Match system and the corresponding full-color PDF page will be printed on the outer envelope. With this system, popular composition systems such as GMC™ can be utilized to produce a PDF of up to one million pages and have the envelopes dynamically matched and printed inline. Digital Cut-Sheet Self-Maintenance Plans } MCS is announcing new manufacturer endorsed self-maintenance plans for toner-based digital presses. New customers can receive service tech level training to help reduce standard click-charges and receive the additional benefit of higher uptime and production.
