With the three-layer back lit signages/displays and tactile printing, this UV machine opens up many profitable applications in a very demanding industry
Mumbai-based Pacific Digital has installed EFI VUTEk GS3200 to boost its production capabilities. The GS3200 delivers category-defining, photo-realistic quality output and expands the reach of superwide printing into new industries and applications. EFI VUTEk’s dual resolution capability enables true 600 dpi and true 1000dpi output with selectable 24pl or 12pl drop sizes.
GS3200 is ideal for fine art replication, detailed photography, and high-definition POP displays, as well as traditional 3.2m banner and signage applications. The GS3200 can transition from rigid materials to roll-to-roll media in less than one minute, the company reports, and it can print on various substrates. It can also accommodate flexible or rigid materials up to 126.5-in. wide and up to 2 in. thick. Its dual-roll capability enables the simultaneous printing of two, 60-in.-wide rolls.
Commenting on installation, Mansukh Gala and Bipin Gala, Managing Directors, Pacific Digital said, “We’ve worked with Arrow Digital before and because we have a strong relationship with the company, we were happy to buy the EFI VUTEk GS3200 on the strength of the quality of the print produced during the Demo at their state-of-the-art Demo-centre in Ahmedabad. We didn’t even feel the need to look at competitive alternatives. We produce a wide range of displays ranging from retail and point-of-sale, portable solutions and exhibition graphics, interior and exterior applications including multi-sheet posters, floor graphics and banners, plus vehicle liveries and wraps. Such has been the success of the business that the need for a faster and more versatile wide-format UV printer became an essential addition to the company's armoury of equipment”.
The GS3200 produces eye-catching, photo-realistic graphics in eight-colour (plus double white) mode at speeds up to 1200ft2/hr. In its exclusive, four-colour plus white, Fast-5 mode, with incredible speeds up to 2400ft2/hr, the GS3200 easily competes with high-volume commercial production printers. With the three layers back lit signages/displays and tactile printing it opens up many profitable applications in a very demanding industry; while opening more diversified business opportunities.
Mansukh & Bipin added, "We're confident that this investment will pave the way to winning further lucrative national and local contracts and draw attention to us. EFI VUTEk GS3200 will allow us to focus on the requirements of large print projects as well as responding to the needs of clients with extreme deadlines without any negative impact on quality. We look forward to adding capacity with another printer in close cooperation with Arrow in the very near future."
