The solution for a wide range of printing applications
DG-Vision is a short-make-ready hybrid web offset printing press that combines shaftless technology with near-limitless inline options. This press can be used for a wide variety of products: security printing, pharmaceutical inserts, commercial print products, and direct mail applications. Proven shaftless web press technology has been combined with innovations that minimise make-ready time. The modular design makes virtually any combination of modules possible, making it suitable for a wide variety of products.
Unique qualities of DG-Vision
Print quality. The image quality is very high for even the smallest details. Security features can be accurately printed due to high line screens for plate making. Rainbow printing is also possible with an offset tower. Further print features can be easily added by combining modules like screen printing, flexographic, gravure or inkjet units.
Print cost. Lowest cost when printing large orders. When the quantity of the print job goes up, the costs per copy decrease. Due to the low one-off costs for making the printing plate, the costs fall when the order size increases.
Productivity. Offset printing is one of the fastest printing techniques. DG-Vision can reach a speed of 400 m/min.
Versatility. Wide variety of printing substrates. Offset printing can be used on a wide range of substrates. DG-Vision can print on paper, foil and board.
Easy ink control. With offset printing, the ink is easier to control. By turning the spanners, the operator can control the flow of the ink.
What is behind DG-Vision
Print quality The image quality is very high for even the smallest details. Security features can be accurately printed due to high line screens for plate making. Rainbow printing is also possible with the offset towers. Further print features can be easily added by combining modules like screen printing, flexographic, gravure or inkjet units.
Servo drive. The latest computer-controlled direct drive of all units allows exceptionally precise web tension and print registration on a wide range of materials. Registration remains stable during speed changes. The press does not have conventional gear trains and gear boxes, which are subject to wear, and can introduce print quality and registration variations.
Quick size change. The print towers are equipped with interchangeable three-cylinder size groups. As soon as the size group is put back in the print tower, it adjusts to the correct position automatically. The cylinders will automatically set to the zero position. Four size groups can be changed in less than 10 minutes.
Automatic washing. The automatic washing system of the DG-Vision cleans all the ink rollers in the ink train including the doctor roller. The print towers can be washed separately or simultaneously.
Information management. The operation screen can be equipped with software for repeat orders. This software allows the printer to save relevant machine settings. When dealing with repeat orders, the operator can retrieve previous job settings quickly. This results in time savings up to 70%.
Drying. The Vision can be equipped with different methods of drying; UV drying, hot air drying or IR drying. UV drying is often the most suitable solution for difficult print processes and temperature sensitive printing materials.
Inkjet module. Inkjet module from different suppliers can be integrated to print images and variable data, like numbering and personal data, at high speed in both colour and black and white.
