Solopress commits to wide-format print

The Southend-based firm has just signed a deal to take delivery of two new wide-format presses from Agfa.

Solopress has purchased two Anapurna H2500i LED hybrid wide-format presses, which will allow the firm to combine board and roll-to-roll print jobs.

Simon Cooper, managing director at Solopress says: “We decided to invest in the Agfa Anapurnas as they were positioned in the right place in the market considering the overall capital cost, whilst having the efficiency, quality and reliability we need from a trusted partner.

“Our wide-format is growing at around 35% year-on-year, and this equipment now gives us the overall productivity we need to service that demand as well as the flexibility we need to offer many new products.

Having two devices gives us the peace of mind that even during scheduled downtime we will have the redundancy we need to ensure there is no disruption

The presses print at a width of up to 2.5m and is suitable for use for outdoor and indoor applications. The UV LED lights reduce downtime and energy costs for print-service-providers, with the capability to switch them on and off instantaneously.
