Meyers Obtains New UV Inkjet Printing System
MINNEAPOLIS—Meyers, which produces retail marketing solutions, has purchased a new Durst Rho 900 UV inkjet wide-format printing system. Installation is scheduled for March.
“As part of our $10 million investment in technology, which also includes a new KBA 81˝ litho press scheduled for installation in early Spring of 2011, the new eight-color, super-large digital printer is designed and engineered specifically for the in-store signage and display segments of retail marketing,” noted Fred Silloway, president of Meyers Retail Marketing Solutions Group, in a statement. “This investment closely aligns the needs of our customers with our growing core competencies and demonstrates a clear path to market leadership.”
With its eight-color UV printing capability, the new printing system will accurately reproduce corporate colors and skin tones. It boasts high speeds and the ability to reproduce small text and fine lines. It will print sheets of almost any substrate up to 98˝ wide and 2˝ thick.
The new printer reportedly provides a high degree of automation that brings efficiencies to the production of printed sheets, and its UV drying capabilities support a wide range of substrates. Supported by a new digital diecutter/router, it’s suited to any work requiring digital printing—such as prototype work, store sets, variable imaging, market-specific graphics or any kind of short run, quick-response work.
