Hundreds of 2017 SGIA Expo attendees’ appetites for an affordable, high quality multi-substrate print solution were pleasantly satisfied by the introduction of Xante’s new UV4000 UV LED printer last week. “SGIA is such an important event for commercial operations that we felt it was perfect for the UV4000,”said Robert Ross, Xante President and CEO. “They definitely weren’t disappointed and we couldn’t have been more pleased. At a very affordable $50,000 (USD), the UV4000 destroys a significant barrier to profitability for our customers. This is a very sweet spot for shops which have been waiting for a UV flatbed,” Ross added. Attendees were amazed at the range of substrates accepted by the UV4000. Whether the media is coroplast, acrylic, metal, or glass, the UV4000 proved it was the solution that any sign shop or in-plant could easily find useful.
Foster has reported a successful SGIA Expo 2017 exhibition. Discussing the show, Foster CEO Ted Borowsky said: "By returning to SGIA this year, we were able to see many customers and prospects for our cutting and trimming tools and our line of On-a-Roll® lifters, many of which were also on display in the booths of dealers and equipment manufacturers. At the show, we introduced our new Power Jumbo lifter, an electric lifter that dramatically reduces the effort required of operators to quickly and easily load and unload printers, as well as maneuver heavy rolls in the warehouse and on the shop floor. The Foster Power Jumbo lifter is available from Foster dealers around the world."
