Total Graphic Solutions Installs Second Inca Onset S20 from Fujifilm
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.”
Another benefit of great value to TGS is the color consistency across the two Onset S20s and the other devices in the shop. “Fujifilm applied their extensive expertise in color to match all of our printers, plus the ColorGATE RIP allows us to control everything in the shop with one single RIP,” Rezac said. “We’re able to move a job between the two S20s with no worries about the color, and we can do the job in half the time. With color consistency across all platforms, we’re able to produce a client’s job in less time, accurately and reliably, no matter the size or complexity.”
In addition to the new Inca Onset S20, TGS added an Esko Kongsberg i-XL cutting table to their already powerful lineup. “The Kongsberg i-XL finishing table provides another avenue of support for our customers, and further ability to produce jobs we had to outsource before. We’re able to maintain control over the job from end-to-end, and deliver the complete job to our customers in a lot less time,” Rezac said.
TGS watched sales soar 30 percent year over year, and they’re forecasting the same or better this year. “With the capacity of two Onset S20s,” Rezac said, “that opens up a lot of opportunities for us. We’ve been telling our existing customers about our increased capacity and new capabilities, letting them know we can do all of their jobs. We ask our customers ‘why use three vendors when you can use only one?’ Our customers understand the value of keeping all of their work under one roof—the color consistency, delivery from one location, a single point of contact, and the confidence of working with a proven partner.”
