Presstek, Codimag Showcase the Simplicity of Chemistry-Free,
Waterless Offset Printing with Live Demonstrations
Nashua, NH USA – September 25, 2017 – Presstek LLC, the leading provider of eco-friendly printing solutions, today announces the launch of Zahara NWL, a chemistry-free waterless plate exclusively designed for narrow web label printers. Water washable — a market exclusive — Zahara NWL is extremely durable and UV-compatible, making it an attractive and environmentally-friendly plate solution. Also being launched is the Dimension Pro-W thermal CTP imaging system optimized for Presstek’s Zahara waterless plate family. These new products will be featured at Labelexpo Europe 2017 in Brussels, September 25-28 in the Codimag stand (Hall 11 stand C10).
At the show, Presstek and Codimag will demonstrate the advantages and simplicity of a chemistry-free waterless offset printing workflow. The Zahara NWL plate will be imaged on a Dimension Pro-W CTP system, water-rinsed, and printed on Codimag’s VIVA 340, a six-color, waterless offset press. Visitors are invited to bring their press-ready print jobs on a USB drive to the stand to witness the streamlined, high productivity workflow, featuring the Zahara NWL plate and Dimension Pro-W CTP system.
“We are excited to unveil Zahara NWL, the label market’s most environmentally-friendly high-quality waterless plate solution. We’ll be demonstrating to visitors how quickly they can image and print exceptional labels,” comments Ralph Jenkins, Director of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Presstek. “Zahara NWL is engineered for the industry’s toughest jobs, and the expo provides attendees with an opportunity to experience it firsthand.”
“We are pleased to be partnering with Presstek at Labelexpo Europe after a very successful partnership at Chicago last year. Live demonstrations will provide visitors a unique opportunity to see how they can streamline their print production process with Presstek Zahara NWL plates and Codimag’s VIVA Aniflo presses. The eco-friendly, waterless printing solution delivers the outstanding quality, speed, and reliability that our customers require at competitive prices, and eases their platemaking process by avoiding chemistry,” comments Benoit Demol, CEO of Codimag.
