J-C Press Installs Agfa Graphics’ Anapurna M4f Inkjet Printer
NEW ORLEANS—Oct. 19, 2011—Agfa Graphics announced that J-C Press of Owatonna, MN, has expanded its wide-format printing capabilities with the UV hybrid :Anapurna M4f from Agfa Graphics. The entry-level system is a 62˝ wide-format printer that provides J-C Press with high-quality POP displays, posters, exhibition panels, stage graphics, ad panels and more.
J-C Press first opened its doors in 1859 and has today become an award winning, G7-certified full-service commercial printer. The company decided to make its first leap into wide-format printing with the :Anapurna M4f because too much time was being spent applying adhesive-backed materials to rigid substrates. The :Anapurna can print directly to the rigid, helping J-C Press efficiently meet its customers’ expectations regarding color and durability.
”In a time when it is becoming more and more difficult to differentiate yourself in the marketplace, having a device like the :Anapurna M4f, which allows us to solve problems and offer new solutions to our customers, is critical,“ said Brady Manthe, Business Development Manager, J-C Press.
The :Anapurna M4f features a print resolution of 720×1,440 dpi and a maximum printing width of 62”. It also features a roll-to-roll printing option, making the system even more versatile.
“The :Anapurna M4f is an efficient entry level system that reduces the time it takes to print high-quality output,” said Larry D’Amico, vice president, Digital Imaging, Agfa Graphics, North America. “A lower volume print shop can offer customers new services centered around printing on rigid materials and be able to effectively produce them.”
Agfa Graphics’ commitment to the wide format UV inkjet market will be showcased during the SGIA Expo. Attendees can visit Agfa’s booths (#935 & 945) to see various inkjet systems from Agfa Graphics running live.Among the solutions being demonstrated are:
• :Anapurna M2540 FB makes its debut at SGIA as Agfa’s first entry level :Anapurna flatbed UV curable inkjet printer. The M2540 FB has a print size of 8.3’ x 5’ and is designed to accommodate the growing market need for printing on rigid materials
