    VIM products are giving the customers better run lengths!

    Steve Hopkins from the UK mentioned a week ago: One of his clients was running 50K with DP-R on a Karat 46 press.

    Candido reported about his client Mata Digital in Spain running 75K with DP-R on a DI 52 press.

    Our Dutch distributor, having 3 DI 52 clients, all working with VIM DP-R, prefer our product to those of the competition, because of the improved run lengths.

    David Sartain wrote in February 2013: 'Our account Voom Graphics in Texas running DOB on KPG5634 called to let us know that they are at 108,553 impressions on one set of plates and still going strong!'

    What are you waiting for!! ;)

    Prersstek VS VIM

    Steve
    Thats amazing! Even more amazing is that Presstek pricing on the plates is better than VIM's. As far as the run lengths. That has never been an issue with presstek plates in my experience. If anyone needs infomation on pricing for presstek DI plates give me a call or email.

    Hi Anthony, Long time no speak! So we are now rivals I see. No change there, ha ha. Last time I spoke to I seem to remember you didn't have a good word to say about Presstek so I am quite taken back by your comments. Rest assured Vim cannot and will not be beaten on price so that is that sorted. Anthony I have sold over 45 DI presses and have a good name worldwide in the industry so I would not sell the VIM if I didn't know they are the best quality and value for money. All users know they print a much more uniformed dot and a lot less blanket toning.
    I would like to challenge you on your comment on run lengths?! Who are these people, we have given names, people can call them and check what we say is true. I do hope the same applies to your claim.
    Good luck with it, you may need it.

    Steve

    Hi Anthony, everybody knows that Presstek's monopol on plates made DI technology dead. Their greed for money stops well working industrie, we all remember well the prices of 1400€ per box. Thanks VIM input we have now the prices close to 600€ per box, and they work fine. So stop to play good uncle form USA. You were forced to reduce the prices only because of VIM.

    yes you are 100% correct presstek did reduce there price to stay competitive.
    Thats a good thing, now I can sell more DI presses and DI Plates and my customers plate cost is way down its a win win for everyone. So whats the problem?

    I'm 100% with you Anthony, only competition ist good for the market. The problem was in the past as Presstek has treated any competitor as a enemy.
    As the result you have a poor output on your offered QMDI presses with 37 mikron laser beam, instead to have improved on like eg. Karat 46 press had with 16 mikron. But it's all history and we 'll not change it.

    If it is about using other types of laser diodes different from the manufacturer, I think it will not work, if the diode burns and it is necessary to replace, it can not be repaired.

    I do not know what it means to decrease the laser life, with what plates ?, the plates need another system, now, my system is tested to have the values equal, this depends on a special RIP computer.
