The Vutek printer will be installed at our 2,800sqm site in Leeds next month and we’re super excited about the new prospects our latest investment will bring by giving us additional capacity alongside our existing equipment, which includes Durst Rho 320 and 700 printers.
Our director Nathan said “The range of jobs we produce is so diverse, and with the Vutek we will have the option of printing white ink under or over. It can operate as roll-to-roll as well, so will be back up for our Rho 320. It’s a really versatile machine.”
The Vutek has a 3.2m print width and can print onto substrates up to 5cm thick. It has a seven picolitre drop size and prints at 600dpi or 1,000dpi at up to 223sqm/hr. The LED UV device uses EFI’s cool cure technology and can print onto a wide range of substrates including heat-sensitive materials. It is configured with CMYK plus light cyan and light magenta, and two whites for the multi-layer white facility.
Our print and design projects will benefit immensely from their new piece of equipment, whether that be large-format work such as indoor and outdoor signage, exhibition graphics, lightboxes, high quality retail graphics and bespoke graphics.
The investment in this printer also brings with it new prospects for our staffing opportunities. We’re excited about taking on three new members of staff over the next 18 months, starting with a salesperson, and is also looking at taking on further apprentices.
