Gescom S.p.A, one of Italy's largest digital print service providers, recently became the first Italian print service provider to place an order for the Inca Onset S20 - expanding its service offering. The high volume, high production flatbed printer will put Gescom miles ahead of its competitors by producing high-impact visual images at incredible speeds.
Currently boasting an incredible 22 digital printers, the Viterbo based company is one of Italy's leading digital printing specialists and delivers digitally printed products to customers in Italy, France, Switzerland and the UK.
Raffaele Friggi, technical director at Gescom explains why they chose the S20 from FUJIFILM Sericol: "We tested a number of high-end digital flatbed printers and the Onset S20 is, in our opinion, the market leader in offering the highest quality print at the best speeds, giving us the opportunity to widen our expertise and offering new printing possibilities to our customers.
"We prefer to invest in companies with proven, exceptional customer support that have the promise of offering technological advancements in the future. We believe that Fujifilm Sericol is one of those suppliers and have signed an initial 2-year contract with the local distributor, Imas Grafica."
Keith Harley, European marketing director at Sericol says: "The S20 is a very profitable business solution for printers who are looking at ways to reduce costs while adding greater flexibility to their printing processes, as it delivers on quality, speed and cost, making for good business economics. This order proves that Gescom is serious about remaining one of Italy's leading digital printers and we are thrilled to be associated with them."
Gescom will hold an open day during autumn 2009 to give its customers the opportunity to view the machine in action.
The S20, a UV curing inkjet flatbed printer, is the latest high performance addition to the Onset family which has already represented a major change in business dynamics for the industry. It prints edge to edge onto substrates of 3.14m x 1.6m and up to 50mm thick, at speeds of up to 250m2/hr. The vacuum table with accurate pin positioning allows users to print single and double-sided on a variety of media sizes.
The 6-colour Onset S20, combined with Sericol's award winning Uvijet Ultratone inks, allows printers to widen the printable gamut of colours to 85% of the PANTONEÂź colour spectrum. It also features a gloss level control to produce finishes from matt, through satin to high gloss depending on application, bringing massive versatility in the range of products that can be printed, e.g. display POS, exhibition graphics, backlit/frontlit displays and outdoor signage printing.
