Matan Digital Printers - 8/31/2006
Matan Launches New SprinG3
Rosh Haayin, Israel at SGIA 06 in Las Vegas, Matan Digital Printers will launch Matan SprinG3, the third
generation of the Matan Spring12 product line of industrial 6-color thermal transfer digital presses. The new Matan
SprinG3 delivers superb print quality, faster printing speed and wider substrate range, enabling unique solutions
for an even wider range of demanding applications. Matan will hold a press conference at its booth #3201 on
Wednesday, September 27th at 11:00 to present the new product.
Overall Improved Performance
The third generation of the Matan Spring is the fruit of an extensive development process, resulting in the
creation of innovative proprietary print head technology designed specifically for the Matan Spring product line.
The new print heads and the related software significantly improve the overall performance of the Spring printing
system. Within the same system specifications, there is a dramatic leap forward in print quality and actual printing
speeds. Improved quality parameters include enhanced trapping results, more vivid colors with higher gloss level
and smoother tints. Productivity may increase up to 300% since desired quality can be achieved in faster print
modes. In addition, identifying the appropriate print parameters is much faster and easier.
Higher Media Versatility
The new SprinG3 can now print with much broader media versatility, allowing quality printing on substrates
including many types of paper, coarse-surfaced media and exotic substrates such as diamond grade reflective
Earlier this year Matan released the SpotBoard electronic card, which is now standard in all SprinG3 machines.
In addition to enabling individual control over the energy level of each printing station it offers Plug & Play USB
connectivity to any computer including laptops.
High Accuracy "Digital Hot-stamping" Option
One of the options for the new Matan SprinG3 is the enhanced Flex-Print system, enabling highly accurate
"Digital Hot-Stamping" on pre-printed media rolls from any print platform, analog or digital. This automatic optical
registration system allows overprinting at an unbelievable accuracy rate of 0.1 mm (0.004 inch). Together with
Matan's VariPrint variable data software option, this offers an ideal personalization solution for a host of short-run,
high durability applications, requiring special colors such as metallic gold and silver, opaque whites and other
special spot colors.
Unique Solutions for Demanding Applications
Mr. Hanan Yosefi, President & CEO of Matan said: "These impressive innovations, together with the proprietary
Matan SpotBoard technology, represent a major evolution to new industrial standards for the Matan Spring
product line. Printers will be able to produce an even wider variety of specialized, demanding applications,
unanswered by any analog or other digital printing system. We invite printers to take a look at the Matan
SprinG3 in one of the upcoming trade events, or invite a personalized demonstration at their own site in the
USA with our Mobile Spring Demo Center. I believe they are in for a pleasant surprise".
Launch at LabelExpo Americas and SGIA '06
The SprinG3 will be exhibited at LabelExpo Americas at booth 5325. Later in the same month Matan will exhibit
the SprinG3 at its booth #3201 at SGIA '06 in Las Vegas, Matan will shortly announce its worldwide upgrade
plan, so that our existing Spring installed base will soon be able to enjoy the new SprinG3 advantages.
