Central London-based 24 hour print and graphics provider First Colour has installed the first Canon Arizona UV 135 GT flatbed printer in the UK to facilitate its ambitious wide-format print growth strategy.

Eleven years ago, the company formerly known as Signs Plus Visuals rebranded itself as BrandVizion and invested in an EFI™ VUTEk® UV inkjet superwide-format printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. The investment paid off: Business skyrocketed, setting the Washington, D.C., metro area company on a growth track that would lead it to continued expansion offering premium-quality display graphics. Now, on the cusp of new growth opportunities, company Owner John McManus and his team at BrandVizion are embarking on new capabilities and versatility to grow with its latest investment, an EFI VUTEk h5 hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll UV LED superwide-format printer.

The Durst Group announces that Durst and Vanguard have been honored for product excellence and quality once again by PRINTING United Alliance, winning four 2021 Pinnacle Product Awards. These awards distinguish products that improve and advance the printing industry with exceptional output quality, productivity, and capability.

Ricoh USA, Inc. today (27th October) announced the expansion of its wide format portfolio with the RICOH Pro TF6251 UV LED flatbed and RICOH Pro L5160e latex roll-fed wide format printers. These solutions are designed to help customers increase job opportunities thanks to their outstanding productivity, wider color gamut and unlimited application possibilities. They satisfy market demand for affordable output, enabling customers to pursue ambitious growth plans fueled by high profit potential, low operating costs and exceptional reliability. As with all devices in Ricoh's wide format portfolio, they can be strengthened by its new Wide Format Elite Access service—brand-agnostic workflow support services and expert advice to help printers enhance profitability.

Brand Consortia has invested in its first swissQprint Nyala flatbed printer to elevate print quality, open doors to new markets, boost revenues, and increase productivity.

Proprint Services (Proprint), a leading digital printer in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, is saving its customers both time and money with its latest install, the Fujifilm Inca OnsetX3 HS Flatbed Printer (OnsetX3 HS), complete with a semi-automated robotic handling system. Proprint specializes in retail, non-permanent point-of-sale, in-store signage, and in-store non-permanent displays, as well as packaging, including folding carton (food), specialty in-store, and e-commerce. Proprint also purchased a Kongsberg C Series digital cutting system with full automation to improve their print finishing capacity as a complement to their new OnsetX3 HS.

Epson today announced it earned three coveted PRINTING United Alliance 2021 Pinnacle Product Awards, with the SureColor® F-Series dye-sublimation printer line receiving the award for the seventh consecutive year. This year’s award winners include the SureColor V7000 in the “UV/Latex Flatbed (Under $100K)” category, the SureColor F10070 in the “Roll-to-Roll Dye-Sublimation on Textile ($50K-$100K)” category, and the SureColor F6370 in the “Roll-to-Roll Dye-Sublimation on Metal” category.

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that it is the proud recipient of four Pinnacle Product Awards for its Colorado 1630 UVgel roll-to-roll printer and its Arizona 1380 GT, Arizona 2380 GTF and Arizona 2380 XTF flatbed printers, and two Pinnacle InterTech Awards for its Canon UVgel 460 Ink technology and Canon Arizona FLOW technology, as determined by PRINTING United Alliance.

swissQprint is launching a new series of models this October. The core of the new flatbed printers is cutting-edge print head technology along with advanced mechanical features that promise a quantum leap for users – especially when it comes to output quality.

Roland DGA will be conducting an exciting livestreamed product launch on Wed., October 13, beginning at 10 am PDT.  The virtual event will showcase the impressive features, capabilities, and business advantages of the company’s newest wide-format introductions – the Texart XT-640S direct-to-garment printer and the VersaUV® LEC2 S-Series UV flatbed printers. With the PRINTING United Expo not taking place this year, this virtual launch will give prospective customers the opportunity to see these innovative inkjets in action and get a feel for all the amazing things they can do.

Innovation reigns supreme at Agfa as its Jeti Tauro H3300 LED conquered a coveted Pinnacle Product Award from PRINTING United Alliance. The Jeti Tauro H3300 won in the UV/Latex Hybrid category (more than $500K).

Since its installation in late 2020, France-based Imprimerie des Alpes has been using its Ricoh Pro™ TF6250 to transform its production processes and bring more work in-house.

UK-based tech start-up parrotprint.com has invested in an EFI VUTEk Q5r digital printer from CMYUK, making it the first tech brand in Europe to install the latest 5m roll-to-roll UV LED printer launched by EFI in January this year.

Luton-based design, print, and digital marketing specialist Treacle Factory are experts in helping businesses get creative with their promotional print materials. When the time came to expand what they were able to produce in-house in terms of media and size options, they looked to Josero to help them take that next step forward and upgrade their existing Mimaki. Jeremy Brown, Director, Treacle Factory and the team opted for the Mimaki UCJV300-160 printer/cutter, an Easymount 1600 Laminator, and a BubbleFree Pro flatbed applicator table.

Roland DG is excited to be attending FESPA Global Print Expo 2021, showcasing brand new solutions alongside some of the company’s most popular machines and technologies for print professionals.

Highlighting how its end-to-end large format graphics solutions enable customers to expand into new markets, Canon will inspire visitors with a vast application range giving sign makers and print service providers a taste of colour.

Durst Group, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, announces that Vanguard Digital Printing Systems, a U.S. company acquired last year and headquartered in Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA, is establishing its European branch in Brixen, Italy.

Mimaki Europe will showcase its broad portfolio of market-leading, profit-generating digital print technologies at FESPA Global Print Expo 2021 (12-15 October 2021, RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Stand: 1-F45). Taking full advantage of the first in-person FESPA event since the COVID-19 pandemic, the company will premiere live demonstrations of its most recently announced innovations, while also inspiring visitors with outstanding applications produced by customers.
