The newest machine in Dale Studios is big! 3.2 metres printable width big. The new Agfa Anapurna H3200i LED was installed in September 2018 and has instantly become a critical element of our business and workflow. This latest addition to our workshop is a Hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll LED UV-curable printer. Caldera RIP software used with the Agfa manages the workflow and provides greater control of the printing and production process.
Our business has grown several-fold over the last five years, since we first invested in UV flatbed printing. Our commitment to never miss a deadline means we have to have the capacity to fulfil an ever-increasing number and range of projects and we knew it was time to significantly increase the printing and production power we could offer.
Quite simply, the printer gives us the quality, speed and capacity to produce even more jobs, at pace whilst still maintaining the quality and attention to detail, as well as allowing us to offer a host of new applications, such as large scale fabric back-lit banners, which is a rapidly growing market area along with ultra wide prints up to 3.2m.
