Midcomp has installed the first JHF V2800 in South Africa at ATK Signs. This affordable yet upgradeable LED UV flatbed printer is the ideal choice for Print Service Providers (PSP’s) that want to venture into lucrative markets where innovation and versatility are key. As the PSP’s productivity demand increases, so can the productivity of their printer be increased.
The JHF V2800 comes in a variety of print head configurations, either a 2 head or 3,4,5,6 or 8 head configuration depending on the PSP’s budget. All V2800’s are specified as field upgradeable, and come already equipped with all the piping and pumps even for unpopulated print head slots, so that all that needs be added is more colour, white or varnish print heads and appropriate printhead electronics.
Printing on heat-sensitive media is no issue with cool LED curing. The LED lamps are always ready to go, with neither a warm-up nor a cool-down. Handle a variety of applications such as acrylic, aluminium composite panels, ceramic tile, wood, polyester, polycarbonate, polystyrene, (high-density) PVC, flexible foam panels, glass and metal (with a primer). Applications include interior decor, free-standing display units, signage and more.
Based in Pretoria North but servicing the whole of Pretoria, Midrand and Johannesburg area, ATK Signs offer many types of signage to new and existing clients. Having developed into a turnkey operation over the years, the company does most of its work in-house, with in-house graphic designers, along with qualified sign tradespeople and installers to ensure a project is taken care of by professionals.
ATK Signs owner Stanley Atkins explained that the motivation behind the machine purchase was its cost-cutting benefits, particularly on vinyl prints as well as its significantly cheaper ink. While Atkins anticipates that the machine will cater above and beyond for the needs of the company’s client base, he expects the machine will also open a new market for Point of Sale applications. ‘The service from Midcomp was excellent – they were very professional and helpful,’ said Atkins.
