CJ Graphics (Toronto), one of the most award-winning commercial printing companies in North America, has expanded its in-house capabilities with the addition of two new state-of-the-art wide-format printing systems from Agfa Graphics Canada. The company has added Agfa Graphics’ Jeti Tauro H2500 LED with ABF (Automatic Board Feeder), and the Agfa Jeti Ceres RTR3200 LED inkjet system, to its growing equipment repertoire. Powered by Asanti workflow, these state-of-the-art solutions will provide CJ Graphics with “the power to answer the high-quality and consistency demands of its clients,” the company added.
The Jeti Tauro H2500 LED is a 100-inch-wide (2.5-metre-wide) hybrid UV-inkjet printer with an integrated roll-to-roll system, built for demanding 24/7 workloads. Offering speeds of up to 2960 ft./hr., it features continuous and automated feeding of a wide range of media including corrugated board. A powerful adaptive vacuum system holds corrugated and thin media flat for extremely accurate ink placement. The Automated Board Feeder (ABF) can process up to four boards automatically, increasing production efficiency by up to 30%. The white-ink capability of this printer expands applications to backlit POP/POS, or for using white as a spot colour on both rigid and roll media.
The second addition, the Jeti Ceres RTR3200 LED, will provide CJ Graphics with the ability to deliver high-quality prints at ultra-high speeds (2,002 ft./hr. (186 m/hr.) on flexible media for both indoor and outdoor applications. This 126-inch-wide (3.2 metre-wide) roll-to-roll system combines heavy-duty ruggedness with superior throughput that’s capable of unattended printing. The Jeti Ceres offers six colours plus white to enhance opacity, boost colour contrast, and improve text readability. Offering skip-white functionality, it achieves faster production by skipping blank spaces in a file and speeding production of the colour data output. Its dual-roll capability offers high throughput for greater flexibility on 60-inch media. “CJ Graphics’ clients will enjoy faster turnaround times and rich results – even on unlined mesh and porous substrates,” the company added.
With the addition of the Asanti workflow, CJ Graphics new Jeti Tauro H2500 with ABF and Jeti Ceres RTR3200 LED can also deliver colour consistency for enhanced brand communications across multiple printing devices. Asanti optimizes and automates the preparation, production and finishing steps for sign and display products. Asanti 3.0 can also integrate with third-party printing equipment, streamlining print processes while offering reliable, predictable, high-quality results. “With the recent investments in Agfa Graphics’ technology, CJ Graphics continues its business strategy, reflecting a dedication to craftsmanship, partnership and responsibility,” said Jay Mandarino, President & CEO of The C.J. Group of Companies.
