After three years of production, M&R has produced its 500th i-Image computer-to-screen imaging system.

Geoff Baxter, director of M&R’s digital products division, said: “In the three years we’ve been making i-Images, the demand has been phenomenal. Interest in the line started strong and continues to accelerate. We’re now turning out approximately one i-Image per day and ramping up to produce them at an even faster rate, so there’s a good chance the 1,000th i-Image will roll off the line before the end of next year.”

The 500th unit, an i-Image STE I imaging and exposure system, will be adorned with special badging marking the occasion and displayed at SGIA 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 14 to 16.

Rich Hoffman, president and CEO of M&R, saidL “The i-Image line, in concert with our Uni-Kote screen coater, Eco-Rinse screen rinsing system, and Tri-Loc registration system, has been revolutionising screen rooms around the world by making it possible for a single operator to coat, image, expose, and rinse up to 400 pre-registered screens in an eight-hour shift, so the strong demand hasn’t been a surprise.

“The only issue was keeping up with orders. However, since the move to our new, larger facility in Roselle, Illinois, we’ve been able to streamline production and dramatically increase the production rate.”

Other models in the i-Image line include the compact i-Image S imaging system, the i-Image ST imaging system, the oversize i-Image X imaging system, and the oversize i-Image XE imaging and exposure system.
