Intec has built up a reputation for producing affordable digital presses that allow small print shops to get into personalized printing. The company has now added a new CS3000 model to its ColorSplash series of digital colour printers.
It’s a cheaper model aimed at low volume users. As with the ColorSplash 4000 and 5000 models, it’s an SRA3 model capable of printing up to 50 A4 pages per minute in colour or monochrome and 28ppm A3. It’s based on LED toner technology and prints in CMYK at 1200 x 1200 dpi.
The ColorSplash engines use a straight through paper path that allows them to handle a wider range of substrates, including polyester, digital PE or light 55gsm NCR type media up to 500gsm heavy card stocks or less flexible substrates such as magnetic and metallic foil media. This also includes extended paper size formats from 63 x 89mm right up to 330mm by 1,321mm long for banner printing, useful for unusual formats such as A4 landscape, tri-fold or concertina style products.
As with the other ColorSplash models, it has a modular design that accepts a range of print production and finishing modules. This includes Intec’s feeders and finishers for applications such as banners, envelopes, labels and packaging. There’s also an optional Fiery XF RIP.
Ian Melville, Intec’s managing director, says the new model is the most affordable in the ColorSplash range, noting: “Intec has hit a new sweet spot for equipment buyers with the CS3000.”
