Exhibitor Press Releases


27 Sep 2017 Apex Digital Graphics

Apex Digital Graphics will provide a major attraction at IPEX 2017 by becoming the first UK company to exhibit an 8-colour SRA1 perfecting press with LED-UV drying.

The RMGT Ryobi 928P will be centre stage on stand B200 alongside new CTP product launches from Cron, and digital press solutions from Konica Minolta.

Two LED-UV curing units are incorporated into the 928P press – one situated over the perfecting device and the other at the delivery end of the machine, enabling one-pass instant curing perfecting. The machine allows for 8-up A4 printing on both sides of the sheet, meaning 16-up A4 in one pass, at speeds up to 13,000per hour, delivering dry sheets ready for finishing.

RMGT Ryobi has established itself as the market leader in LED-UV litho technology in the UK. With almost 20 UK installations, Apex Digital Graphics has sold more machines of this type to the UK than any rival supplier. This dominance is matched worldwide - with hundreds of LED-UV installations, RMGT Ryobi is the global leader.

Sales and Marketing Director Neil Handforth; “We have made multiple installations of LED-UV presses to the UK market, including four machines in the SRA1 8-colour configuration. This is very exciting technology which is generating a huge amount of interest among UK printers, and a must-see for Ipex 2017”

Apex will also show three new CTP systems from Cron. The B1 sized Cron 46G+ is an updated and enhanced addition to the popular Cron ‘G’ Series, available in UV and thermal options. The UV version of this machine will be at Ipex with multiple cassettes, internal platesetter punching and on-line processor. This device will deliver plates for the RMGT Ryobi 8-colour press on-stand.

New versions of the Cron “H” series are also on show, in both 26" and 46" formats. These uniquely compact models boast built-in autoloaders and internal punching, and are also available in both UV and thermal laser options. The 26" model is aimed at the price sensitive B3 market and is the natural successor to the popular DPX series, where Apex sold over 500 units in the U.K. The UV option of the 26H will be shown at IPEX in a special low cost configuration, including punching and Cron's low-cost Blackwood plate.

The B1 sized 46H Thermal model will be on show imaging Fuji's Superia ZD processless plate, which will also be shown on-press.


More detail on these new machines will be available prior to the show.

Apex Digital Graphics will be joined by award winning print solutions provider Konica Minolta Business Solutions Ltd. The stand will feature a model from the C6100 series featuring a 750mm long sheet feed with inline on board colour management, Duplex registration on the fly, 400gsm duplex printing and a 1200 x 1200 x 8 bit print engine.
