The machine was installed by engineers from EFI Jetrion and Grafitec Label Presses before staff from Colorscan began training on how to utilize their powerful new equipment – a very quick process due to the Jetrion’s ease of operation.
The deal to bring the machine to the UK was signed on the very first day of drupa after Colorscan Director Keith Forster saw the machine in action and was convinced that its unrivaled ability to provide true, fully digital, file-to-finished-product printing was exactly what his business needed.
John Ainley, sales director of Grafitec Label Presses Ltd., says, “The installation of the 4900 has gone very smoothly and we are all excited to see this superb equipment in action. It is the very first machine in the UK that offers full digital file-to-finished-label production, and it is going to start some big changes in our label production industry.
“Customers will benefit from rapid turnaround of orders and consistently high quality products. Printers will finally be able to enjoy truly profitable short run label printing as well as impressing customers with the speed and quality of service they can offer.”
Forster adds, “We produce point of sales and other printed products for the real ale brewing industry. We only operate digital equipment, and currently most printing is done on a Xerox IGEN which is both fast, and of a high quality. Unfortunately it does not have a white ink capability, and to date no Xerox printer does.”
