One of Europe's biggest wide format print businesses is reporting a substantial productivity boost, a reduction in delivery times and an increase in quality, since investing in an Inca Digital Onset X platform from Fujifilm in the spring of 2018. The Onset X2, with six colour channels and ¾ automation, installed at the company's Berlin facility, has made such an impact that the company intends to invest in a second machine early in 2019.
The ability of Xeikon’s breakthrough Wall Decoration Suite to support cost effective short run production proved to be strong enough convincer for PPS and K&L Wall Art at this year’s Heimtextil. So much so that both German operations signed deals for the production lines during the five-day Frankfurt show.
German digital printer PPS. Imaging GmbH has invested in a Xeikon Wall Decoration Suite, including a Xeikon 8500 digital printing system with an X-800 front end and two CMS/WMF walldeco finishing units. The company took the decision towards the end of 2017 in order to service the growing creative market for personalised wallpaper for hotels, cafés, offices, trade shows, events and homes. Installation is due to be completed by the end of March 2018.
