The Meteor DP8700 XL is the most versatile toner-based digital press. Created for the key markets such as commercial printing, in-plants, plastic card manufacturers, book printers, photo printers, and many others, the Meteor DP8700 XL is faster and more precise thanks to a new thinner toner and more higher printing quality. An exclusive MGI feature allows to print up to 1200 mm (47”) long.

While it incorporates the key features that made the Meteor series the most versatile in the industry, including true multi-substrate capabilities for paper, plastics and envelopes, laser-safe prints, offset comparable output and no click charge, the Meteor DP8700 XL features a host of capabilities designed to maximize production and ease of operation.
