Why settle for latex?

October 18, 2016

The topic of latex inkjet printing can be a funny old thing at times. There are many who love their latex printers but there are also those who don’t. Let’s face it, most people who have invested in a latex printer probably made the decision to do so based on environmental concerns (my customers will love me more for having a latex printer over a solvent printer etc.) and they fell for much of the hype that HP fed the market.

Roland DG are pleased to announce the UK availability of Texart Fluor inks, adding an amazing range of fluorescent colours to the already wide gamut. Texart XT-640 and Texart RT-640 users are offered the chance to increase their colour portfolio with over 375 fluorescent hues when combined with other Texart inks, bringing new profitable applications to their business.

Roland DG says all new TrueVIS VG-640 and VG-540 machines can be shipped with configuration for White ink, alongside updated versions of machine and VersaWorks Dual firmware.

Roland DG is to release a series of fluorescent inks specifically formulated for its Texart XT-640 and RT-640 wide-format dye-sublimation printers.

HP has given its DesignJet Z-series portfolio of printers a boost with two new models that feature new HP chromatic red ink that the company says enhances the colour gamut and makes them a more attractive option for the production of high-impact point of purchase signs and posters.

Nth Degree Imaging has relocated to a new UK central location as part of a major new strategic expansion plan. The new offices in Peterborough will be better sized and positioned to house and demonstrate a vast array of the very latest wide format printing and finishing equipment, media, colour management and workflow solutions.

This year’s Sign & Digital UK at the NEC has been hailed a success and, with almost identical attendance figures as the 2015 event, it looks as if the show has attracted interest from a broader cross section of the printing industry - and they like it enough to keep coming back. What was even more encouraging was the increased amount of business done at the show, with many of the visitors going along to either place an order on the day or have a final look-see before making a post-show purchasing decision.

Mimaki is set to change the way vacuum moulded, or thermoformed applications are created with the launch a unique, stretchable ink suitable for a wide range of thermoforming applications.
