Missouri Printer Streamlines Its Production with Agfa Jeti Mira Wide-Format Printer
ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — April 14, 2016 — Versa-Tags Inc., a commercial printer based in Cuba, Mo., has been offering its customers higher quality print with greater efficiency thanks to the company's recent installation of the Jeti Mira MG2716 HS driven by Asanti workflow from Agfa Graphics. The Jeti Mira MG2716 HS is a six-color plus white, 105.9˝ (2.69m) flatbed UV inkjet printer offering two rows of print heads for higher productivity and a moving gantry for precision printing. A version of the Jeti Mira will be shown in the Agfa Graphics booth (#1335) at ISA's Sign Expo in Orlando, Fla., April 21-23.
Versa-Tags Inc. supplies the promotional, automotive, ad specialty and industrial markets with quality printed products. As the creator of the original self-protecting Versa-Tag key tag, the company has built a national reputation for customer satisfaction and innovation.
Thanks to the well-built construction of Jeti Mira MG2716 HS, Versa-Tags has experienced less downtime than with previous systems, resulting in more efficient production. Combined with Asanti, an automated wide-format workflow, Versa-Tags production processes are streamlined and they are enjoying more consistent results.
"The Jeti Mira MG2716 HS is a dependable printer, with a versatile rip and an easy-to-operate graphic user interface. It's been working extremely well on a wide variety of substrates, giving us the ability to offer our customers a larger range of products, such as plastic signage, pressure-sensitive decals and window advertising products," says Mark Unger, general manager, Versa-Tags.
The Jeti Mira's 7pl droplet size produces stunning detail and razor-sharp text as small as 4-point type. The 'Print & Prepare' mode offers non-stop printing while its six vacuum zones with four sets of registration pins enable fast, accurate double-sided printing.
Several Agfa Graphics wide-format printing solutions driven by Asanti, including the Jeti Mira, will be shown in the Agfa Graphics booth (#1335) at Sign Expo, being held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., from April 21-23.
