McCoy Printing Installs an Inca Onset S40 High-Volume Inkjet Printer
VALHALLA, NY—Oct. 18, 2011—Fujifilm North America, Graphic Systems Division announced that McCoy Printing in Torrington, CT, has installed an Inca Onset S40 wide-format UV inkjet printer to boost production efficiency, increase output quality, speed up job turnaround and lower cost for its customers. McCoy, a family-owned business since 1998, specializes in screen, offset and wide-format digital printing, producing the most demanding POP and outdoor campaigns.
“We believe in employing the latest technology to improve quality, consistency, and efficiency in the printing process,” said Andy Riberdy, president of McCoy Ltd. “We looked at our existing equipment and decided that new digital inkjet technologies could increase our print quality and speed up turnaround times. We felt that we needed to make new investments to enable us to offer our customers more value and effectively compete for new business.”
Conducting a methodical and careful search, McCoy considered a number of wide-format inkjet printing platforms, eventually narrowing their focus to the Inca Onset S40 from Fujifilm. “We looked at a number of competing technologies,” Riberdy said, “but what really drove the decision for us was the astounding print quality of the S40, which none of the other platforms approached.”
The ability of the Inca Onset S40 to produce outstanding print quality was a perfect match for McCoy’s demanding requirements.
“The S40’s high quality gave us the edge we were looking for,” Riberdy said. “A good portion of our clients do fashion work where flesh tones are critical along with color and gloss. We’re producing near-offset quality on the S40, and our customers have been very impressed.”
In addition to higher print quality, McCoy enjoys increased cost savings and higher efficiencies when printing on the Onset compared to traditional offset printing.
“Work previously done offset is now being printed on the Onset,” according to Riberdy, “Getting up to color on our offset press results in significant waste which gets extremely costly when printing on high value substrates such as plastic. The Onset can achieve the quality our offset customers demand, and we can gang images on the large Onset printbed to turn jobs quickly with virtually no waste. Customers also benefit from the Onset S40’s ability to print on substrates up to 2” thick. Before, any job over 40-pt. required mounting and finishing, increasing turnaround time, and cost. Now, we can do it direct to substrate on the Onset saving both time and money.”
