Individually printed glass elements are all the rage in interior design: for kitchen splashbacks, shower and room partitions, glass doors, lift cabin panelling, wall art, etc. For those already providing such services – and others with plans to do so – swissQprint has put together an interesting package: a mechanical solution for an efficient, clean process, supplemented by an ink set for optimum adhesion.

SuperGraphics, a Seattle based large format print company, concluded their search for a faster, more versatile machine with the installation of a Durst Rho 312R Plus. This addition will increase their capacity and productivity, while still providing the highest quality on the market to current and future customers.

To start with, Agfa’s Jeti Tauro H3300 LED printers are now available with a varnish printing option. The Agfa varnish allows not only for the embellishment of a part of the print but also a full flood option that covers the entire print. This new technology allows for a bigger color gamut and is capable of printing 75 m²/h with varnish.

swissQprint has announced at short notice a new development to be launched at the Fespa Global Print Expo 2022 in Berlin. The company invites visitors to the world première at Hall 1.2, Stand C30 from 31 May to 3 June 2022. Until then, details stay as veiled as the product itself.

Fujifilm has agreed a partnership with Soyang to sell the Acuity Ultra R2 in the UK market. The agreement marks the start of a new venture for Soyang, a highly respected wide format materials supplier, now looking to leverage that expertise to enter into hardware sales.

Redditch-based start-up Webb Print & Display (WP&D) has invested in an EFI VUTEk h3 printer from CMYUK. Several nationwide retail campaigns have been produced on the 3.2 hybrid UV LED printer, generating forward momentum for the business, and attracting new clients.

Birmingham-based Hollywood Monster has installed an EFI VUTEk Q5r from CMYUK to cope with demand after a record-breaking four months.

The retail industry is an increasingly competitive space as businesses and brands consistently battle to beat rivals on prices, match promotions, offer customers better deals, and grab the most attention in-store. This means suppliers to the retail industry cannot afford not to deliver outstanding quality, meet tight deadlines, and accommodate ambitious projects. As one of the leading producers of POS to the retail industry as well as the largest producer of OOH print, collaborating with customers including B&Q, Waitrose, H&M, M&S, and Tesco, SMP Group in London knows these demands all too well. Peter Darwin, Operations Director at SMP Group, says: “We're constantly challenged by our clients to provide higher quality, quicker turnaround, cheaper prices in reality, and we need to be initiative-taking in finding ways to get that out to the market.”

Fujifilm today (17th May) announces the launch of the Activ Hybrid LED UV curing system, which can be installed on new presses or retrofit to existing equipment by label and packaging converters. The system combines the latest, high power, low heat LED UV curing technologies with Fujifilm's ink expertise to improve label production on narrow web presses. It enables traditional UV or water-based flexo presses to be seamlessly converted to LED UV curing, resulting in significant environmental savings, cost and material savings and increased productivity and quality.

Ahead of their appearance at FESPA, under the banner 'Blueprint Live' Fujifilm's Acuity Prime and Acuity Ultra R2 wide format printers have each won iF Design awards.
