MINNEAPOLIS, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Delphax Technologies Inc. (OTC Pink Sheets: DLPX), a global provider of high-speed digital printing equipment, announced today that Cenveo (NYSE: CVO), through its Cadmus division, has reached the unprecedented production milestone of five billion pages printed on Delphax's high-speed CR Series presses.
"This is an achievement that we're very proud to be part of and to recognize," said Dieter Schilling, president and chief executive officer of Delphax. "To give a sense of scale to this extraordinary volume of high quality printing—five billion pages placed end to end would stretch for more than 868 thousand miles. A car traveling nonstop at 99 miles an hour would take one full year to cover this distance."
Cenveo's Cadmus division, the world's largest provider of publishing services to the scientific, technical and medical market, operates four Delphax CR1300 roll-fed presses, each capable of continuous 1,300-page-per-minute production speeds.
"With their unique combination of speed, reliability and paper handling capabilities, the CR Series presses have given us significant productivity improvements and cost savings in the production of case law documents and other exacting publishing applications," said Gordon Gottlieb, site leader of Cenveo's Conklin, N.Y.-based digital printing operations. "Of particular value to us is the CR Series' exceptional capacity for handling the lightweight paper stock necessary in our production of legal reference material."
The Delphax CR Series offers the fastest toner-based digital printers in the world, offering a wide range of applications, including books and booklets, transactional materials, tickets, packaging inserts and legal and financial documents. The presses use electron-beam imaging technology, which requires fewer active components and enables printing on a wide range of paper stocks.
The CR presses help publishers minimize inventories, warehousing costs and the risk of inventory obsolescence. Direct advantages include improved cycle times, higher productivity and reduced labor costs.
