Jetrix is planning to launch a 3.2m wide roll fed UV printer at the upcoming Sign UK show. The new Jetrix RX3200 comes equipped with sixteen Konica KM series print heads, with 14pl drop sizes for resolution of 1440dpi. It will be available either as a 4 colour (CMYK) or 8 colour (CMYK Light Cyan Light Magenta Light Black and Light Yellow) ink configuration.
It can produce 169sqm per hour in production mode down or around 36sqm per hour in the best quality setting. There are some handy features on the printer, such as the option to loads multiple rolls on the feed to print at the same time, an easy winding system for heavy media and an automatic nozzle cleaning function.
Jetrix is a subsidiary of the Korean ink manufacturer Inktec so the ink is tailored to the printer. Jetrix claims vibrant colours and excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates.
UK Sales Manager, Ben Woodruff said: “The Jetrix RX3200 3.2m printer will move us into a different sector of the market: outdoor, high-volume, on-demand print.”
Jetrix already sells a flatbed printer, with around 40 installations in the UK. It has seen an 15% increase in turnover over the last 12 months which it attributes to a growing customer base and continuous product development.
