Redhill Refines its YSL D2300S Printer

Improves speed and adds vacuum hold-down

Big Picture

Redhill's YSL D2300S printer has been completely redesigned from its introduction at last year's SGIA as the 2300D, says the company. Redhill has ramped up the speed on the D2300S (which is based on the Shanghai Yaselan line of machines, with Redhill's modifications for Western print shops). The printer now offers print speeds up to 346 sq ft/hr in production mode (versus 300 sq ft/hr as the 2300D). The 87-in., 6-color (CMYKcm) solvent- based machine is designed for shops that need to print near photo-quality images.

The 14-picoliter drop Konica printheads have gone through a manufacturing revision to address "side walking." And the media-feed system now incorporates a vacuum hold-down, which eliminates head crashes against the media.

The YSL D2300S runs a true 720 x 720 dpi (but the prints look like 1200 dpi, reports Redhill), has a new automatic alignment system for ease in setup, and comes standard with the Scanvec Amiable Photoprint DX RIP.

Price: $45,000. (Redhill Inkjet: www.red-hill.com)
