Quebec-based Mitchel Lincoln Packaging has completed the installation of an Agfa Jeti Tauro H3300 UV LED wide-format inkjet printer from Agfa Graphics Canada (Mississauga, Ontario) at its newly renovated production facility in Montreal (Ville St-Laurent). Also located in Drummondville and Vaudreuil, Quebec, the company has a combined 750,000 square feet of state-of-the-art manufacturing and warehousing space. Mitchel Lincoln is a Canadian leader in the manufacturing of specialty corrugated cartons and displays – including packaging and shipping products, custom boxes and pop-up displays. The investment will allow the company to continue as a major player in the corrugated market by expanding its services, improving print quality and reducing turnaround times. Mitchel Garfinkle founded Mitchel Lincoln Paper in 1965, and the family-owned business has grown exponentially even since.
The Agfa Jeti Tauro H3300 UV LED is a 6-colour, 10-foot-wide, hybrid flatbed printer that offers increased productivity, high print quality and low ink consumption. Agfa Graphics’ wide-format systems for indoor and outdoor digital printing and signage allow users to easily print a variety of displays, POP and POS materials, billboards, vehicle graphics and wraps, backlight signage, and much more. Agfa’s wide-format systems focus on combining quality, speed, productivity and application flexibility – and the H3300 is no exception. Available in flatbed and roll-to-roll (RTR) configurations, it utilizes Asanti workflow that substantially increases the degree of automation in daily production.
Agfa Graphics also recently upgraded its Jeti Tauro H3300. It now comes in a 4-colour version (CMYK) that reaches sellable production quality in just three passes. Its Automatic Board Feeder (ABF) is ideal for shorter runs as well as fast, smooth changeovers between different media sizes or types. The technology effectively takes over part of an operator’s tasks – including accurate alignment, which is particularly helpful for double-sided printing. In addition, its existing master RTR version that’s ideal for high-volume runs, now also features an optional light, RTR Unit that’s particularly suited for occasional, single roll-to-roll work. However, it can be quickly converted to sheet mode. With these new additions, the H3300 LED now has 6 configurations with different levels of automation – including full automation, semi-automation, manual loading and unloading, and RTR printing.
