We’re extremely proud to have 4over here with us at drupa 2016 and sign on as our first NS40 installation.”

A key factor in 4over’s decision to install the Impremia NS40 is its ability to provide the level of inkjet variable printing required to satisfy the company’s promise to its customers for superior quality coupled with faster turnaround times.

No post-drying is required. Additionally, it produces digital images at an extremely low cost per page. The use of water-based inks also makes the Impremia NS40 energy-efficient and eco-friendly.
