DSales (UK) introduces Develop ineo 1100 production print system

DSales the UK distributor for the Develop range of multifunctional document imaging systems, has launched the Develop ineo 1100 digital production print system. With a maximum monthly output volume of 2.25 million sheets, the ineo 1100 is ideally equipped to handle the mono production printing demands of printrooms, digital print providers and other high-volume printing environments.

The flexible ineo 1100 offers 100 ppm output speed, with the added advantage of a colour scanner, which scans documents in a single-path duplex operation at up to 180 ipm. Quality is not sacrificed for speed - a genuine resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, advanced screening technology and customised professional-quality tone curve and screening adjustments (based on an upgraded tone curve utility) ensure outstanding output quality.

With a maximum paper capacity of 9,000 sheets in five cassettes and a newly developed bypass tray where 250 sheets can be inserted, the ineo 1100 is well equipped for any high-volume print job, and even extensive mixed-media jobs can be handled easily. The ineo 1100 can feed substrate weights from 40 to 300gsm (optionally up to 350gsm) and sheet sizes from 92 by 132 mm to SRA3 (324 by 483 mm). This enables the versatile ineo 1100 to process just about any job a digital print operation is likely to require.

A range of professional finishing options is also available. Production of up to 100-page booklets with automatic ring binding; two point and choice-of-corner stapling for up to 100 sheets; two or four hole punching (also for post-inserted documents); Z-folding for inclusion of A3 documents in A4 printouts; letter folding for up to three pages; and a newly developed output tray for offline finishing or where no finisher is needed. The optional GBC punch unit comes with a wide range of die sets to ensure compatibility with most popular punching schemes, for example metal-based (wire) or plastic (comb) binding.
The ineo 1100 is the first digital production press from Develop to support Konica Minolta's OpenAPI technology, which allows developers to create applications that communicate with this production system. As a result, customers can use third-party accounting, authentication or scan-routing applications, such as YSoft SafeQ or Nuance eCopy Sharescan, in combination with this printer.

Commenting on the launch of the Develop ineo 1100, Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director of DSales (UK) stated, "As the majority of high-volume jobs in this segment are still printed in black and white, the ineo 1100 is a valuable addition to the Develop production print range. Although fast, versatile and powerful, the ineo 1100 is compact and will fit easily into in-house CRD printrooms or pay-for-print environments. The ineo 1100’s high productivity ensures short turnaround times, when tackling time-critical print jobs, with all features controlled via an easy-to-operate touchscreen."
