EFI VUTEk QS2 Pro 3.2 metre wide format flat bed and roll fed UV curable printer
After a period of growth in its large format digital printing business PressOn has installed an EFI VUTEk QS2 Pro 3.2 metre wide format flat bed and roll fed UV curable printer.
As a result of increasing demand they have made a number of substantial machinery investments in the last 12 months, including a Kongsberg XPi 24 digital cutter in August 2012 and a Supracoater 1600 liquid laminator in December 2012.
Joint founding managing director, Andy Wilson, said, ‘Our customers have always insisted upon high quality print from us, but the demand for the absolute best image quality has become more and more evident. To continue to satisfy customers in this higher premium market we needed a machine that was flexible, could print on any substrate even on heavily textured materials. Any addition needed to guarantee to produce the quality print that we are trusted to deliver. With the tight deadlines our customers need, high production speeds were extremely important too.’
The printer was supplied by CMYUK. The VUTEk’s in-line multi-layer print capability and greyscale technology with variable droplets is a feature that will help the company to offer its customers premium quality print. This technology offers solutions to the increasing challenging project requirements such as printing pure white ink on coloured substrates. The machine will be linked through the existing GMG colour management software, to ensure colour critical print remains accurate.
Joint managing director, Nigel Webster, commented, ‘Our retail customers will love the quality and flexibility it will offer, enabling us to print straight to wood, board and even aluminium. It will also help us with the very creative bespoke work we are seeing more frequently from the fast moving retail display market.’
