Belfast-based print and signage consumables supplier, Alphagraphics, has recently celebrated its 30th anniversary by introducing the Acuity LED UV printer range to the Irish market.

Fujifilm today announces the release of a new machine in its Acuity series, the Acuity LED 1600R.

The first public demonstration of this new model will take place at C!Print Lyon 6th-8th February 2018 on the Fujifilm stand (2L36). It will be commercially available on the 1st of March.

Now, LOGO Werbetechnik is doing the same thing.

Fujifilm today announces that the tilia Griffin wide format automatic layout solution from Tilia Labs has been added to its suite of XMF workflow products. tilia Griffin automates the process of laying out jobs on a single sheet in order to maximise the printed area and minimise the substrate waste after cutting, a process that many wide format printers still use Adobe Illustrator or similar programmes for. tilia Griffin rapidly works out the optimal use of space, saving both the time taken to do this process manually and the material that is inevitably wasted through a time consuming manual process.

When it was installed in March 2017, Kingfisher Press’s Jet Press 720S (the third installation in the UK at the time) signified a bold step forward for the Suffolk-based printer and its co-directors Jon Doidge and Paul Tomlin. “We had reached a bit of an impasse – our litho work was static and we decided that we had three choices as to how to proceed,” explained Tomlin at the time. “We could buy nothing and continue as we were, running the risk that our competitors would start to leave us behind; we could invest in a new litho press, which would offer us a slight improvement in speed and quality; or we could invest in a Jet Press 720S and open up a whole new revenue stream. When we looked at it like that, it wasn’t a difficult decision.”
