They do everything big in Texas, especially their inkjet printing. As such, Superior Graphics of Dallas, Texas, has become one of the most recent companies to install the :Jeti 3020 Titan UV inkjet printing system from Agfa Graphics. At more than 10 feet wide, the :Jeti 3020 Titan is a high-volume, field-upgradeable, true flatbed that provides high resolution and high production speeds.
Superior Graphics produces promotional and point-of-purchase graphics for a variety of retail clients, typically working with companies that have between 20-200 locations. Superior Graphics strives to be the premier provider of retail graphics in its region using the most innovative portfolio of resources in the digital-print arena.
The :Jeti 3020 Titan offered the best combination of speed, quality and low cost of operation of all the devices that we examined," said John Ehrenberger, president of Superior Graphics. "With the Titan's high print quality, we have been able to produce new projects that feature very small type for our existing clients. With our previous equipment such projects would not have been possible. Not a problem on the Titan, though!" Ehrenberger added.
Among the most common projects Superior Graphics has been able to tackle with the :Jeti 3020 Titan are various-length retail shelf strips that measure 1.5" wide. Shelf strips often need trademark information or legal notices that are difficult to produce clearly on other flatbed printers, but come out perfectly with the Titan.
"Since Superior Graphics installed the Titan in November 2011 they've been using it for everything for their retail customers, including white ink-based projects," said Deborah Hutcheson, director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "While Superior purchased the system and uses it for its combination of high-speed, high-quality and overall low cost of operation, others appreciate the flexibility of the Titan's potential. The base system comes with 16 Ricoh Gen 4 greyscale print heads and is upgradable up to 48 heads for maximum speed and color capability. This gives the Titan the ability to grow as your business grows."
The :Jeti 3020 Titan's FTR option supports rolls up to 750 lbs, allowing print service providers to buy media more economically and compete in more markets. It uses UV-curable inks so it can print on a wide range of uncoated and coated roll media types including banners, vinyl, polyester, canvas, paper, self-adhesive PVC, PVC/PA-transparent media and more.
The :Jeti 3020 Titan and several other inkjet technologies and systems from Agfa Graphics will be on display and available for demonstrations at Sign Expo 2012 (booth #1036). ISA's International Sign Expo is being held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, from March 22nd through the 24th.
