Installation of UV LED printer EffeJet 2512 in the company MARTINEK spol. s r. o – customised printing solution.
Effetec s.r.o., a manufacturer of large-format digital UV printers, recently supplied a UV LED printer to MARTINEK spol. s r. o., which focuses not only on standard printing, but is one of the companies that specializes in lenticular printing.
Quality lenticular printing under control
Pavel Martínek, owner of MARTINEK spol. s. in Předklášteří, was looking for a way to satisfy its clients, who wanted to combine optimal possibilities of large format printing with lenticular printing technology. That is, an image printing technique that enhances the depth of the image, or allows you to change or move the image, depending on the viewer’s point of view. “Our clients have increasingly demanded more direct printing options and high-precision lenticular printing,” said Martínek. “Until now, we have had to subcontract these projects. However, this method did not work well for us, as most suppliers were unable to complete their contractual obligations within the set deadline or the prints, lacked the accuracy required by us. We came to the conclusion that without adequate technical support, high quality of work cannot be done, ”continues Mr. Martínek.
Ensuring it‘s own production of large format printing, the company MARTINEK spol. s r. o. successfully solved by acquiring a flatbed UV LED printer EffeJet 2512. “The EffeJet 2512 printer provides the possibility to print on a wide range of materials, while allowing us high accuracy of lenticular printing. This gives us great print quality and no need to rely on anyone ”. He praises Effetec and Mr. Martínek adds: “It is unique to print directly on standard solid materials and at the same time be able to perform perfect lenticular printing, which is, among other things, very valuable at the moment. Since it is a stable printer, I can set up printing and know exactly what the output will be. Just no mistakes and no reprints! ”
Effetec – innovation and development
Effetec’s experienced development team, which has been successfully operating in the printing industry for almost 14 years, specializes in the production of wide format UV printers. It is therefore no coincidence that they can give the customer an offer that sometimes exceeds his expectations. Printers are designed in the company “from the first to the last screw”, so there is no problem to adapt the printer to any size, print height, print head, UV / LED lamps and other functions. In 2018, for example, Effetec built the tailor-made customer for the largest industrial flatbed with a printing area of 3.2 × 8.4 m.
Standard offer and customized solutions
Effetec has a standard printer size of 3.2 x 2.1 m, 2.5 x 1.25 m and 1.6 x 1.25 m. The height of the printable material is up to 150 mm. The most standard used printers are the proven Konica Minolta 1024i and Ricoh Gen 5 printheads. The print speed depends on the device configuration and the number of printheads. “We are able to achieve printing speeds of up to 200 m2 / hour, which I think is a very interesting parameter. We installed Caldera GrandRIP ripping software and Linux operating system very well. It is also worth mentioning information about high quality UV inks of their own formula, whose price is very advantageous compared to their quality and offers a wide range of “true” colors. The UV inks together with the printing solution guarantee excellent adhesion, color stability and mechanical durability when printing on the substrate. Every individual requirement and wish of the customer is a challenge and inspiration for us to fulfill his vision using modern technologies. As it was when we built a literally tailor-made 3.2 x 8.4 m flatbed printer for an Italian company. In the case of Mr. Martínek, the same has been achieved and the result is another satisfied customer of our company. ”Mr. Michal Frantík, CEO of Effetec sro
