GSW – Mimaki

The latest edition of Sign Africa Journal is online. On the cover you can read how Exion Corporation has exclusively introduced the TPS fully automatic channel letter bending machines into the South African market. TPS specialises in channel letter bending machines and has sold over 1300 of them all over the world in the past 13 years. They are well established and popular in the European and North American markets.

Other features in this issue:

  • Energy Calculations For Digital Presses: the problem is not unique to digital presses, but how do you measure energy usage and the overall energy efficiency of a machine?
  • 10 Things To Consider When Investing In RIP Software Packages: print quality depends upon it. Today, output devices take centre stage along with file sharing, remote access and Cloud storage applications. However, RIPs still matter.
    Signage Finishing Solutions: eyelet machines, guillotines, laminators and laser cutters are some of the solutions that sign makers and printers can use to finish signage in-house, reducing outsourcing costs, streamlining production and allowing you to take on more jobs.
  • Textile Printer Trends: one of the latest trends in textile printing according to FLAAR is the acquisition of textile manufacturing companies to allow UV printer and solvent printer manufacturers to enter the growing textile printing market.
  • Wide Format Variable Data Printing Opportunities: when you think of digital wide format printing, you don’t typically think of incorporating variable data. For one-off projects, Variable Data Printing (VDP) just doesn’t enter the equation. However, with the blurring of lines with who is doing what — commercial offset shops bringing in wide-format equipment, traditional sign shops bringing in digital equipment (be it for printing labels or copiers) — the use of VDP can, and does, enter into new arenas.
