Smith Signs installs new Roland hybrid machine
Smith Signs, based in Guernsey, has received a new Roland VersaUV LEJ-640 – the first wide-format hybrid printer launched by the manufacturer – from supplier printMax.
The sign-maker will use the 64" (1.63m) flat-bed machine to expand its service offering with wide-format applications such as window displays and exhibits, as well as packaging prototypes, says printMax. The VersaUV features CMYK, white and clear inks and therefore can be used for tactile finishes.
"The Roland VersaUV LEJ-640 is an excellent addition to our range of print hardware," says Dan Smith, managing director of Smith Signs. "It was an obvious choice as the LEJ-640 is an extremely versatile printer that offers high-quality white and clear print options, plus a host of special effects to create striking textured effects on a range of media. It will enable us to expand our range of services."
Michael Bolton, managing director of printMax adds: "We worked with the team at Smith Signs to illustrate how they can get the best out of the new equipment, in order to generate new income streams for the business. Our technical services manager travelled to Guernsey and managed both the installation and training to ensure Smith Signs were immediately up and running."
