Tukaiz Adds an Agfa M-Press Leopard Printer to Meet Large-Format Demand

December 13, 2012
FRANKLIN PARK, IL—Dec. 13, 2012—Tukaiz, a leading marketing services production company, is one of the first American companies to install an Agfa M-Press Leopard, and the first to install the 5x10’ flatbed inkjet press designed to deliver high image quality on a wide variety of rigid and flexible substrates for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Tukaiz invested in the new system to satisfy increasing customer demand for POP/POS (POPOS) materials, such as in-store displays, vivid 2D and textured posters, banners and window and floor clings. POPOS is an expanding market segment that promises continuing growth in years to come.

The M-Press Leopard will give Tukaiz the ability to output in two days what traditionally takes screen printing two weeks, and with higher quality at a reduced cost. This will allow the company to provide faster turnaround, a competitive price point and the consistent quality for which Tukaiz is known.

The manual-loaded printer accepts substrates that include backlit material, paper, self-adhesive vinyl, fluted display board, metal plates, corrugated board, PVC and most POPOS materials. Handling sizes up to 62x129", it produces high image quality using advanced print-shuttle and page-wide print technology.

“The marketing production landscape is changing and this press will support the need to increase time to market and a higher quality of POP and retail signage, which are reported to be the fastest growing segments of the wide-format market,” noted Carl Rozkuszka, executive director of operations at Tukaiz.

We see this trend proliferating based on our own customers’ demand. The quality of the M-Press is the best of any in its class. It’s revolutionary, producing the highest caliber products on the most sought-after substrates, quicker than ever before.”

Tukaiz had been evaluating the M-Press since seeing it at drupa 2012 earlier this year. Convinced of its quality construction, productivity and reasonable operating costs, the company purchased the M-Press in September 2012. Because the system is about the size of a bus, it had to remove a wall to take delivery.
