Inca investment promotes productivity

One of Europe’s largest wide-format businesses has reported an increase in productivity, following the investment in an Inca Digital Onset X platform from Fujifilm.

The Onset X2 was installed at PPS Berlin in Spring 2018

PPS serves a diverse customer base across retail, agency and exhibition clients and has seven sites across the continent. The Onset X2, with six colour channel and 75 percent automation, was installed at the company’s Berlin facility earlier in 2018. The firm plans to invest in a second machine in early 2019.

"Our customers have high expectations, both when it comes to quality and to rapid delivery," says Steffen Hufnagel, production director at PPS Berlin. "We produce a huge range of products for our customers across our multiple sites, including corrugated displays, POS and OOH products, banners, and more. Quality is essential to everything we do and our customers are continually pushing us to deliver that level of quality to them in shorter and shorter timeframes.

Since installation we've noticed that not only are we able to produce repeat jobs for our regular customers faster, and at higher volumes

"We replaced one of our older machines with an Onset X2 platform in April 2018 and we intend to replace our other existing machine with another Onset X2 platform early in 2019. Since installation we've noticed that not only are we able to produce repeat jobs for our regular customers faster, and at higher volumes than we could with our old machine, we've actually seen an increase in quality as well. It is already proving itself to be a hugely valuable tool in staying ahead of market trends and evolving customer demands.

"The versatility of the Onset X platform has also impressed us" Hufnagel continues. "We're running a huge number of different substrates through it, both rigid and flexible, creating corrugated displays and a range of signage products. I'm confident that this investment places us in a very strong position to respond to market trends towards shorter runs, faster turnarounds and greater demand for personalisation. Furthermore, the installation process went incredibly smoothly. Fujifilm was very professional throughout the process, they scheduled a timetable and stuck to it, and they had an answer to every question we raised. Since installation, the level of support they've provided has continued to be exceptional.”

"I would have no hesitation in recommending this machine to anyone. I believe it to be the most powerful printer on the market and the combination of speed and quality it offers is unrivalled." 

Kersten Caspar, sales manager, Fujifilm Graphic Systems Germany comments: "We're delighted to have been able to offer PPS the step up in speed and quality they required to stay ahead of their customer demands and general market trends. We're delighted they are installing a second Onset platform in the New Year, and we look forward to working with them to get the very best out of their investment."
