Signal points to eco-solvent over latex
Colourgen reseller PSW has supplied Signal UK with a Mutoh ValueJet 1324 and Mutoh Kona Cutter for kiss-cutting lettering, contour cutting stickers and cut-through for sign applications.
The move is the latest step in the rapid growth of the print and cut side of the Tunbridge Wells based company’s commercial print offering.
Signal UK is a full service PSP offering customers everything from initial design to print utilising a broad range of production techniques such as screen and textile printing, wide format inkjet, cut sheet digital and litho printing.
Gary Rose, a director of Signal UK, says: “We are primarily a trade printer and our objective is to do as much as we possibly can in-house. We first moved into wide format digital printing when we purchased a Mutoh ValueJet 1604 around four years ago. This printer was very reliable and has served us well, but after seeing the latest technology at Sign UK earlier in the year, we decided it was time for a new one.”
The Mutoh ValueJet 1324 is an eco-solvent printer using Eco Ultra inks, which contain no VOC's (volatile organic compounds), therefore no special ventilation is required.
“We were quite interested in the latex technology, particularly as it appeared to offer faster production because the output doesn’t need to gas out and so dries faster than eco solvent. However, in comparison to the ValueJet 1324, this advantage was very easy to offset by more efficient production planning. In addition, the Mutoh offers excellent quality, reliability and cost - both initial outlay and cost of ownership,” he says.
Mutoh printers are exclusively distributed in the UK by Colourgen.
