MTL Print's CEO Ran Emanuel made several announcements including the decision to establish North American headquarters and a new executive organization for the region. Emanuel also said the company has made the decision to name the final version of the Meital 304D the NURstar 304.
MTL Print is renowned for its unique wide form at digital flatbed system, already in use around the world and at sign and packaging sites in North America. Chairman of the Board Moshe Nur, inventor of the first superwide format inkjet printers; says that he and CTO Kobi Markovitch are "proud to see the NURstar name on the MTL Print system."
Emanuel says, "Last month in the U.S., a two-day open house -- including live demonstrations of the System -- reached full capacity. This capped off a year of growing demand from shops across the Continent." Emanuel says that NURstar fulfills the growing North Amercian need for its unique combination of advantages. He continues, "We've taken digital wide format to an advanced level, giving sign and packaging organizations the ability to create short or long run, very high quality jobs on a range of substrates, at speeds of up to 2700 sq ft per hour, and at the lowest cost possible."
North American Headquarters and Demonstration Center
MTL Print's new headquarters and demonstration facility serving North America is located in Kennesaw, GA; outside of Atlanta and in the heart of what has become a popular headquarters location for many graphic arts and imaging manufacturers. The address is: 3042 Matlock Dr., Kennesaw, GA 30144.
New North American Executive Organization
Heading the list of new hires are industry sales veterans Pedro Marcano, Henry Maya, and Zohar Barabie. Marcano will serve as Regional Sales Manager, west coast; and Maya will support the organization in the same position, for the east coast. Barabie will serve as sales manager for packaging. More information on Marcano, Maya, and Barabie; as well as additional personnel, will be forthcoming.
The company will also disclose details of its July 26 and 27 Grand Opening of the new Americas office, featuring in-depth demonstration center sessions, in the coming days.
Digital Wide Format Pioneers
MTL was founded in 2007 by Kobi Markovitch and Moshe Nur, two pioneers of digital output technology. Nur, now Chairman of the Board, invented wideboard and blueboard -- the first superwide format inkjet printers. Among other companies, he founded NUR Macroprinters; which was subsequently sold to HP.
Kobi Markovitch, CTO, served as CTO and VP R&D at NUR Macroprinters. The 20-year industry veteran pioneered digital on demand and UV curing, and conceived of the best-selling Fresco, Tempo and Expedio wide format digital systems.
The NURstar 304 (formerly Meital 304D)
The NURstar is a robust and industrial grade wide format digital flatbed that delivers high quality and high throughput for POP, display, packaging, and more, all at the lowest cost per sq.ft.
With built-in variable dot size print technology, the 4 color NURstar 304 achieves quality greater than 6 color systems, and with lower ink consumption.
Also exclusive to the NURstar 304:
- The Interchangeable Table is a patent-pending function allowing non-stop production. Operators can load/unload while printing, thereby reducing wait-time between prints from the typical 50 seconds down to 12 seconds.
- The Dynamic UV System, also patent pending, eliminates gloss banding and reduces electricity consumption.
