The company showcased the first South African manufactured flatbed application table, the Ezee Applicator MINI, at the at the Sign Africa RoadShow in Nelspruit. The machine is ideal for desktop vinyl and print applications, no compressor is required and application size is 1000 x 650.
The machine was conceptualised and developed over a period of a year by engineer Kevin Richards, who co-owns Ogwini Engineering with two partners. The machine cuts out valuable time in applying printed media to any rigid substrate in minutes instead of hours and all this is done with no need for a squeegee or water.
The company also showcased the affordable Super J-Star inks. The eco-solvent inks are imported from Japan, are Cyclohexanone-free and have a 2-3 year outdoor durability.
There are three different variants of the ink and two are for the Epson print heads. The odourless S-EP-Series is for those in the office environment and the M-EP-Series (mild, low smell ink) is for those who are more price-conscious. They are perfect for all Mimaki and Mutoh printers. The third ink, the K-SK series (no smell), is for Konica print heads for HP and Seiko printers.
