Inca Digital has doubled its Onset manufacturing volume at its Cambridge facility in the UK to meet a considerable boost in demand for this powerful series of UV flatbed wide-format digital inkjet printers. This follows the successful launch of the original Inca Onset in 2007, the Onset S20 in 2008 and high interest in the Onset S40 launched earlier this year.
The rise in the number of companies needing to invest in high-performance equipment to meet increased demand from their customers has resulted in a high volume of orders for Onsets over the last year from across Europe and the Americas. In addition, many companies are now investing in second and third machines, either adding multiple S20s or adding an S20 or S40 alongside an Inca Onset as they start to switch to total digital print production and away from screen and large-format litho printing.
"The Inca Onset Series with automation redefines wide-format performance levels, providing an ideal, fast production platform and ticking all the boxes for companies who need to produce short-run, variable and static display graphics on a wide range of materials very quickly and efficiently," said Dr. Linda Bell, CEO, Inca Digital. "The success of the Onset products worldwide over the past three years has raised the quality bar in digitally printed graphics and demonstrated the considerable market for fast turnaround, quality display graphics on a wide range of materials and at a competitive price. We are actively recruiting to further increase staffing levels by 20 per cent across the board and have worked hard with our suppliers to add the capacity to respond to the higher demand."
Fujifilm distributes Inca's exclusively around the world and supplies the patented Uvijet inks that have been specifically formulated to maximise the benefits of Inca's engineering expertise and deliver groundbreaking quality. The flagship, super-high productivity Inca Onset prints at 750sqm/hr (8,073 sqft/hr), the Inca Onset S40 at up to 470 sqm/hr (5,059 sq ft/hr) and the Inca Onset S20 at 310 sqm/hr (3,340 sqft/hr). With a choice of productivity, automation, ink color options and controllable satin and gloss levels, 18 different Onset configurations are available. This enables companies to pick the right model, at the best price, performance and, therefore, return on investment (ROI) for their business and provide room for growth.
