Trip report

During the trip we saw many machines but there were few of them which caught my interest. One of them is KIP C7800, Epson Stylus Pro 9800 and another is the Phillipsburg Mark II series.


The KIP C7800 is a wide color printer that provides a broad range of print submission methods, cloud-based printing, scan and copy, variable data printing and fully integrated stacking and folding. The KIP C7800 provides the most open, integrated and powerful wide-format color and B&W production solution out there. From color management to printing, applications drivers to touchscreen control to cloud printing capabilities, the system streamlines production workflow and increases productivity.


The models in the Epson Stylus Pro series have established themselves as reliable proofing solutions over many years in agencies, pre-press, printers, publishing and repro houses.
