Midcomp has installed an HP Stitch S500 at Mediaworx Digital. The printer enables predictable dye sublimation colour and less media waste for production environments. With symmetrical 2 x CMYK printhead configuration and Optical Media Advance Sensor, this printer allows for saturated and reliable one pass mode for true top speed.
The printer was designed for high production sites. Big ink supplies, larger rolls and HP’s Tension-Sensing Winder allow unattended operations, even overnight, complete with HP Services and cloud fleet management tools. The machine helps users avoid reprints and media waste with 1200 native dpi printheads and HP Smart Nozzle Compensation system, saving up to 50 percent floor space with frontal media loading and a spindle-less system.
Glenn Coleman, Mediaworx Digital owner, whose company specialises in items such as motocross shirts, fishing shirts, jackets, board shorts and hoodies, to name a few, said the machine enhances what the company already does.
‘We’ve printed over 2000sqm in a month,’ said Coleman, ‘We have had no rejects and you can print with the machine unattended the whole day without any problems. We had to monitor the machines we previously had. With the new machine from Midcomp, you can just press play and walk away.’
Coleman described Midcomp’s service as excellent. Mediaworx is using Pay Per Use, a comprehensive and customised programme created by Midcomp that ensures users pay a fixed ‘per square metre’ charge for the square metres they print.
