Apex Digital Graphics, Hemel Hempstead and Leeds, the official UK distributor of Ryobi printing equipment and UK dealer for Konica Minolta digital equipment, has confirmed its attendance at Ipex 2014, where it will be exhibiting alongside the Eco Print zone at the show.
Exhibits featured on stand S5-F451 will include a special exhibition piece focusing on Ryobi’s LED-UV unit for its litho press range; the recently introduced VDP chemistry-free polyester-based platesetter; and a colour digital production machine from Konica Minolta.
Commenting on the decision to take a stand at the show, Bob Usher, Managing Director of Apex Digital Graphics, said: “Ipex has always been a key point of focus in our exhibition calendar. We are delighted to be able to confirm our attendance for this year and look forward to a busy event. Our exhibit for the show will span our main product ranges, with LED-UV taking a starring role on the stand. We firmly believe that this technology, pioneered by Ryobi, will begin to be taken on board by UK printers. It is now viewed as the premier technology for UV production in Japan, with over 40 installations there, and several now in Europe.”
Detailing the rest of the Apex exhibits, Neil Handforth, Sales and Marketing Director at the company, added: “The Mitsubishi VDP platesetter is the ideal product to exhibit with environmental issues in mind: it is the first professional standard low-chemistry B2 polyester plate imaging system in the world. Our first UK installation is currently underway, and we are convinced that any litho printer with a view to environmentally friendly production will be looking for a demonstration and further information on this unit.
“We are also delighted to be able to show our digital production capabilities with a Konica Minolta system. Digital has swept through a significant amount of the B3-format market in recent times. The Apex digital focus concentrates on the areas that printers still hold dear to their hearts: print quality, the ability to match output to litho print, and excellent technical support.”
