The Langham Press Installs MGI Meteor DP8700XL

In Digital Presses on March 7, 2013 at 11:28 am


The Langham Press, a print business based in Foxton, just outside of Cambridge, has installed the area’s first MGI Meteor DP8700XL, a digital press that is making headway in a highly competitive marketplace.

The French-built machine, gradually establishing itself in the UK, was supplied via Print and Reprographic Services Ltd (PRS) to The Langham Press on behalf of MGI Technology, the front-line importer that has offices and showroom facilities in Hemel Hempstead.

David Arnold of The Langham Press was looking for a digital press to complement the company’s Komori litho equipment and had considered various manufacturers: “The MGI Meteor offered a different perspective with its unique capabilities. The obvious attraction of the MGI press is that it provides our customers with a high quality reproduction. On top of that, however, it can print in sheet sizes and formats that were previously only available to us in litho form. Jobs designed to be six-page A4 landscape or eight-page A4 portrait, for example, work well on the Meteor. The machine can also print on to plastic, which again is unusual. This is the sort of capability that could open up new revenue streams for us.”

The Meteor is different from other digital presses: it is built very much like an offset machine with a digital print engine at its heart. One of the main attractions of the unit is its reliability and cost effective method of print production – there are no click charges, but a toner coverage model of charging is used instead. “We have found running costs to be low, especially when compared to paying for clicks. The equipment is very reliable, and we have experienced no major problems since the Meteor was installed.  PRS and MGI have looked after us and are very supportive,” added David Arnold.

The Langham Press has already seen an increase in digital printing business, complementing what they can offer with litho print from the Komori. There is no doubt that the interest from customers is based around the uniqueness of the Meteor press. The machine differentiates itself and its owners from the usual digital offering and can provide users with a variety of revenue streams as it can produce work of various types – an ideal offering for many printers.

About Print and Reprographic Services

PRS, one of the main channel agents for MGI Technology, is based in Cambridgeshire. The company provides expertise in digital reproduction and has been involved in the digital market place since its inception. Brian Swinson, director at PRS, said: “I get very enthusiastic about the MGI portfolio as it offers my customers, and their customers, differentiation. This equipment is not a “me too” solution – it is not your usual digital press. When  printers see the equipment they can immediately appreciate the earning potential.”

About MGi Technology

MGI Technology is the exclusive UK and Eire distributor for MGI France, the manufacturers of the Meteor range of digital presses, the UVarnish, a flood high-speed varnishing system. The UK company has recently sold three Jet Varnish 3D machines which are capable of providing not only spot UV, but can build up the varnish to provide a 3D print finish. Again the innovation of the French company is responsible for providing an unusual and refreshing approach to providing a different look to print.

MGi Digital Graphic Technology (the manufacturer) was founded in 1982. The company designs, manufactures and markets an innovative range of multi-substrate (paper, plastics and envelopes) 4-colour digital presses, as well as a complete line of versatile finishing solutions, including the revolutionary JETvarnish® digital inkjet spot UV coater, as first seen at Drupa 2008, and JETcard® digital inkjet 6-colour plastic card press.
