Milan-based Pubblialba has completed the first Italian installation of the VR6D - HS industrial UV flatbed printer from Vanguard Europe. The system, already in operation at Pubblialba's production facilities, is part of a development project of the company that aims at digitising production to respond to a dynamic industrial market that requires more and more flexibility, quality and speed.

"Demands that have led us to invest in the latest generation of digital technologies and complementary machinery for processing plastics that allow increasingly efficient management of production processes in order to respond promptly to market demands," said Francesco Pileci, Director of Pubblialba, commenting on the investment in the Vanguard system.

A few weeks after signing the agreement with Vanguard Europe at Viscom Italia, Pubblialba has already started digital production with the Vanguard VR6D - HS flatbed system, which combines the latest Ricoh Gen 6 printhead technology with high speed magnetic drive. Key features of the flatbed include eco-friendly LED curing technology, Industry 4.0 compliance, Durst Workflow and Analytics software, ionisation bars for eliminating electrostatic charges, 4 suction zones, 5-10-15 picolitre drop size and a print area of up to 1.27m x 2.54m.

Alberto Bassanello, Durst's Sales Director Italy, commented: "Our participation at Viscom 2022 offered us the opportunity to talk to our customers and many new prospects who want to start or further implement the process of digitising production. Sharing a passion for cutting-edge technology, we worked synergistically with the Pubblialba team from the consultancy stages to the installation of the Vanguard UV flatbed digital production system.

Within Pubblialba, screen printing and digital technologies, pre-press departments and CNC machines coexist, working synergistically to enable the company to produce products with high quality levels. Founded in 1969 and originally dedicated to screen printing and installation of large format posters on buses, trams and airport hubs, over the years Pubblialba has specialised in complex applications for indoor and outdoor industrial equipment.

Founded in 2021, Vanguard Europe is the European subsidiary of Vanguard Digital Printing Systems Corporation, based in Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA. The company recently inaugurated its new European subsidiary inside the Durst Kraftwerk, adjacent to Durst's headquarters in Brixen. Building on its consolidated global know-how, Vanguard Europe aims to become a leader in the entry and mid-level markets of flatbed and UV digital printing systems for sectors such as signage, decoration, corporate, industrial and packaging, replicating the sales success of its American parent company.
