Total Graphic Solutions Installs Second Inca Onset S20 from Fujifilm

April 27, 2012
VALHALLA, NY—April 27, 2012—Business is booming for Total Graphic Solutions (TGS) of Acworth, GA. In 2010, TGS added an Inca Onset S20 from Fujifilm to its digital equipment lineup. Only one year later, TGS added a second Inca Onset S20.

“The quality, production capacity and speed turned our business around,” said Charles Rezac, president, TGS. “Our customers were asking for faster turnaround and the high quality that we can deliver with the Inca Onset S20.”

Since opening their doors in 2003, TGS has been way ahead of the digital curve. “We’ve always had digital equipment, never any screen or offset,” Rezac said. Starting out with an Inca Columbia in 2003, TGS soon added a four-color Inca Turbo. Five years later, TGS invested in a 6-color Inca Turbo to replace the cornerstone Inca Columbia. Then in November 2010, the first Inca Onset S20 was installed to replace the four-color Turbo, boosting business revenue by 50 percent with its increased speed and capacity.

TGS developed a demanding and diversified customer base, ranging from advertising agencies and print brokers to retail clients and major brands who require everything from small format counter cards to large format graphic displays including window clings, floor graphics, standees, point-of-purchase graphics and banners.
“We’ve built our business with Fujifilm and Inca,” Rezac said. “As digital technology evolves and our customer requirements increase, our business has to change to meet their needs and stay competitive. The Turbo was only two years old and yet the Onset S20 is five times faster.”

Rezac said that TGS is producing 45 – 50 beds per hour, or one bed per minute with the Inca Onset S20, compared with five minutes per bed with the Turbo. “The Inca Onset S20 has increased our output by a factor of five, allowing us to move jobs on and off the printer more quickly. The increased speed has increased our capacity for more business from our existing clients and allowed us to take in new business as well.”

To illustrate the benefits that the Inca Onset S20 has brought to TGS, Rezac described a monthly project. “One of our customers has a 1,500 piece job with 10 -12 versions. The job can’t be done by screen because of the run size and versions, plus the customer has specific colors and small type. We were running the Turbo four to five days per week, 24 hours each day to get this job done. On the Inca S20, the job is complete in one and a half to two days. That allows our customer to deliver the job to his customer much faster and opens up our printers to do even more work.”
