Outline

Commercial high-volume offset printing presses for standard-sized sheets. Brochures, catalogs, packaging, art magazines, and other fine printing applications generally involve offset sheet-fed presses, and the DIAMOND 3000 series can print up to 16,200 single-sided sheets per hour. It was developed for high performance in a stylish, user-friendly format. More convenient than previous models, this series incorporates new mechanism for faster startup. Operators can check the status of each unit on a multifunction beam. In this way, the developers blend performance and ergonomic, "soft geometric" shapes.

Evaluation

This design is based on the concept of "user-friendly printers," with an extremely simple shape as its basic core, and formed with an eye toward ergonomics. With many of its components having a rounded form, this offset printing press is less visually imposing, and designed with consideration for the operator's psychological well-being and work environment. It has an LED display that allows operators to instantly determine the status of the printing units. In this and other ways, from the smallest detail to the overall picture, it is a design that tells us that it was manufactured with utmost care.
