Sign-Tronic Demonstrates Nyala Flatbed Printer At Sign Africa Expo

GSW – Mimaki

Sign-Tronic exhibited the Nyala flatbed printer at the Sign Africa Cape Town Expo, held from 5-6 June at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Thanks to its modular design and a variety of options, Nyala is expandable to meet users’ needs. Moreover, it can grow along with them: retrofitting is possible at any time. A suitably equipped Nyala can cover a range of applications that would traditionally require a whole fleet of machinery.

Furthermore, swissQprint systems are proving reliable in terms of both system availability and output quality. With its low operating costs, a swissQprint machine used to capacity will soon start turning a profit – and continue doing so for many years thanks to its durability. Users quote this as a further plus-point in their investment decisions.

For signage convertors, the application of liquid coatings to protect digital prints means an extra, labour intensive and messy step in their production process. Sign-Tronic has stepped in to alleviate these production pressures with a specially formulated varnish that is deposited onto printed graphics as part of the printing process.

The varnish complements the company’s range of flexible UV inks and is developed for use with swissQprint machines equipped with nine channels. The machine printed with four print heads per colour in CMYK and 14 picolitres (a first in South Africa), including two varnish print heads at 30 picolitres.

The solution is suitable for car wraps, truck curtains, illuminated signage, vacuum formed signage, metal and petrol station signage as well as floor graphics.
