Grapo Technologies will be featuring its fully automated Shark hybrid UV printer with feeder/cutter options at FESPA in June. The four-color Shark is a multifunctional system capable of printing on both flexible and rigid materials, producing high-quality greyscale images for a wide variety of display applications.
Grapo Technologies will be demonstrating the Shark hybrid UV printer at FESPA with a new cutter capable of cutting materials up to 1 mm in thickness as well as a feeder that can accommodate cardboard sheets and common rigid materials up to a maximum media thickness 10 mm and a maximum size 2000 x 2000 mm, depending on the weight of the material.
Grapo sales director Branislav Oravec says: "We’ve added more functionality to (the) Shark to improve work flow and productivity. Each model now comes equipped (with) a take up and special guiding system to secure printing of unstable materials such as cardboard, providing users (with) high printing speeds up to 120 m2/hour as well as enormous versatility in applications."
The system can print on either flexible or rigid materials at resolutions up to 960dpi, and can image a maximum print width of 2010 mm with an unlimited print length. Production speed varies from 40 m2/hour for top-quality POS applications to 120 m2/hour for outdoor displays.
“The capabilities of the Shark are normally only found in very high-end printing systems. For example, when working with rigid substrates, manual feeding can often result in expensive errors. The Shark can automatically feed and print 100 sheets per hour, with precise registration, guiding the cut to size sheets to the printer using a unique pause free loading system without compromising on production speed. Because the feeder is automatically driven by Shark software, customers can print up to 100 square meters per hour without human intervention for most substrates,” says Oravec.
