Customers of GSP, a provider of high-impact visual solutions for the retail market, will benefit from the Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS’ cutting-edge technology. The UV LED system is 30% faster than its predecessors and combines industry-leading print quality with versatility and productivity. This ultra-high-speed Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS features an automated unloader for semi-automation.

GSP is expanding their production capabilities with the addition of the first Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS LED system in the U.S. The company delivers in-store marketing programmes to more than 70,000 nationwide retail locations from its four G7-certified print facilities.

‘Our partnership with GSP continues to flourish with the installation of the Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS,’ stated Deborah Hutcheson, director of strategic business development and distribution at Agfa Corporation North America. ‘This historical milestone marks the 12th Agfa press established across GSP’s multiple locations, culminating in the first-ever Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS with semi-automation.’

‘Choosing to add this technology to our portfolio illustrates the partnership between our two companies,’ said Elaine Scrima, GSP vice president of operations. ‘Our ability to grow and enhance our customer-facing offerings is predicated by our vendors growing with us. The Agfa Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS is an important part of our growth strategy. We are excited to be the first U.S. based Agfa partner to utilise this technology.’

Nicknamed ‘The Beast’, the latest Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS UV LED inkjet engine prints media up to 3.3m wide in four or six colours at speeds up to 600 sqm/h. Ruggedly built and fit for 24/7 heavy-duty workloads, the Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS is a versatile LED system that can print on rigid and roll media at top quality with the lowest ink consumption. It is well-suited for corrugated cardboard package printing with extended vacuum zones and media guides.

Characterised by a wide colour gamut and high colour vibrancy, Agfa’s GREENGUARD Gold certified Anuvia UV LED inks provide patented ‘Thin Ink Layer’ technology, resulting in the lowest ink consumption on the market. Asanti workflow software powers the Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS controlling and automating the entire printing process.
