When you ask The Trade Group’s Graphics Production Manager, Bryan Beamon, about all of the new equipment running in his production department these days, he sounds like a kid in a candy store.
Beamon is excited – and for good reason. The new high-tech printers and fabric finishing equipment The Trade Group recently purchased enhance quality and expedite processes for creating fabric graphics, trade show displays, banners, hanging signs, retail displays, commercial graphics and more.
Upgraded VUTEk printer produces higher quality images and seamless, fabric backdrops:
One of the most versatile pieces of equipment the production team has at its disposal is the VUTEk GS Series 3250X Pro Grand Format UV Printer.
“We upgraded from a VUTEk QS model to the GS 3250, because it allows us to print on just about any type of material up to 126.5” wide and 2” deep. This is a huge step up from QS model, which can print on materials up to 80” wide,” Beamon says.
One of the key benefits of the expanded width capacity is the ability to print large, seamless graphics, banners and murals. According to Beamon, “With the new printer, we can produce seamless 10-ft high backdrops of virtually any length. The manufacturer also replaced the mercury vapor lamps with environmentally friendly LED UV curing lamps, which produce minimal heat and require less energy to operate.”
The upgraded printer also allows Beamon’s team to print higher quality images, thanks to the technological advances not available in the previous VUTEk model.
As Beamon explains, “The new printer comes with Ultradrop technology, which enables us to print finer drops and produce higher quality images. It can print white and spot white like the previous printer, but it also comes with a clear gloss channel, which can be used to print subtle, clear logos and images.”
Increased demand for fabric graphics prompted the purchase of advanced printing and fabric finishing equipment:
