APEX COLOR, Jacksonville, FL is expanding product and service offerings with the installation of a new Ryobi 920 LED UV offset press, bought off the floor at Graph Expo, McCormick Center, in Chicago this week, the first of its kind in the US.
“The unique size of the Ryobi 920 series provides a very cost effective solution for our letter size booklet work, and enables us to compete for new business as well” said Richard Ghelerter, company founder and President.
Ryobi’s environment-friendly and low-energy consumption LED UV ink system is another reason for the purchase Ghelerter said. “Press sheets come out perfectly cured and are ready for bindery, no dry time required. This is a game changer for the industry, shorter lead times for offset print jobs are something our customers are always demanding, and now we can deliver”.
Ghelerter continued to explain that with Ryobi’s UV print process Apex Color can now offer jobs printed on synthetic papers and other special media.
Apex Color began in 1974 as Apex Business Forms, manufacturing unit sets, continuous forms and laser sheets for the trade. Over the years Apex expanded into commercial and digital printing but still remains exclusively a printer’s printer, serving distributors, brokers and print shops of all sizes throughout the Southeast and beyond.

Press release from the issuing company
North American premier of RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV press with INSTA.COLOR and CRON UVP 36 CTP—both running live at Booth 4404
RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV winner of Must See ‘Em 2014 award
CHICAGO—Sheetfed offset printing is back at Graph Expo. Celebrating a successful first year as the North American distributor for RYOBI MHI, GSNA will spotlight RYOBI MHI and CRON CTP technology in live demonstrations during its COMMIT TO PRINT exhibition,
Sept. 28-Oct. 1 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Why COMMIT TO PRINT? Throughout the North American print market, one message is clear: reports of the demise of print have been exaggerated. But the rolling stock of offset printing equipment in the industry is aging—in need of replacement and upgrade.
Successful printers today require a combination of high-speed production, low cost of manufacturing, quality and reliability. Enter RYOBI MHI and CRON with the most affordable, productive and reliable combination of fully automated offset presses and CTP on the market. The COMMIT TO PRINT booth will spotlight the complete package in one place.
Headlining the exhibit: live presentations and pre-scheduled VIP demos of the 8-up RYOBI 925 press with LED-UV instant curing technology, which earned a coveted Must See ‘Em 2014 award, together with RYOBI MHI’s INSTA.COLOR digital makeready workflow.
Special emphasis will also be placed on the CRON UVP 36 metal CTP and Blackwood plates, one of the most versatile and cost-efficient combinations available today. CRON CTP solutions are available through select GSNA distributors.
“Seeing is believing in the world of print,” says Don Barbour, chairman and co-founder of GSNA. “At each of our open house events, customers told us they had no idea this powerful combination of offset technology was within their financial reach. So we decided to showcase that message and the technology on an international stage.”
Printers are urged to sign up now at www.ryobi-group.com/graph-expo to schedule a personal, in-depth VIP demo of the RYOBI MHI 925 LED-UV press and the CRON CTP system.
The combination of CRON CTP’s industry-leading 1% dot-gain allowance and the well-known RYOBI MHI extreme dot sharpness will be emphasized throughout the live demonstrations.
“The images and workflow we will present mirror what commercial, in-plant, packaging and specialty printers produce every day. At the Chicago show, we will plate and print live jobs every hour to highlight the speed, reliability and versatility of our system,” says Barbour.
Breakpoints between digital and offset print have never been more closely contested. The COMMIT TO PRINT exhibit will clearly show printers that the RYOBI MHI LED-UV offset workflow provides the lowest total manufacturing cost on run lengths as short as 750-1,000 sheets—together with production levels exceeding 2,100 instantly cured and ready-to-sell letter-size sheets per minute in a 16-page signature format for ease of finishing.
