Imaged Advertising Creations purchased Agfa’s Jeti Tauro H3300 HS LED printer with spot varnish capabilities.
“We imagined the stunning visuals we could produce on the Jeti Tauro with varnish and recognized that it would be a great fit for our higher-end clientele,” said Sean Sadhoo, COO at IAC. “This is another first in the industry for us. We are known as pioneers that are always pushing the limit. The new Jeti Tauro press will complement our 5-meter dye sublimation offerings, turning us into a one-stop shop.”
The Jeti Tauro H3300 HS LED with Varnish combines print quality with productivity, automation, and low ink consumption. This hybrid press offers the ability to add a layer of high-gloss or satin varnish to wide-format prints. The clear coat can be applied to a selected area (spot) or the entire surface as flood varnish, bringing astounding eye-catching attention to wide-format graphics.
Fred Clemente, VP Sales & Innovation, explains “We recognized during COVID that we can no longer be a one-trick pony serving just one market segment. Diversification of accounts is paramount to our success. Markets such as cosmetics and apparel are hungry for customer-focused companies that have innovative solutions”.
Suited for various rigid and flexible substrates, the Jeti Tauro H3300 HS LED Varnish is a heavy-duty, ruggedly built press that easily handles extreme workloads, multiple-shift operation, and 24/7 printing. This engine produces smooth “offset-like” detailed prints up to 3.3 m wide at up to 680 m2/h (7319 ft2/hr) in four or six colors. Agfa’s high-pigmented GREENGUARD Gold-certified Anuvia UV LED inks provide patented ‘Thin Ink Layer’ technology resulting in the lowest ink consumption on the market. Jeti Tauro’s Asanti workflow software automates the entire printing process.
