A family-owned display graphics company in Haverhill has installed the first example of a new generation of printer in the UK.
Stylize Display Graphics in Holands Road has the first Agfa Anapurna H3200i LED installed in the UK.
It is capable of printing on various materials up to 3.2m wide, making it ideal for the banners, vehicle graphics, exhibition graphics or very large outdoor signs Stylize produces.
It uses ultra violet LEDs to cut operating costs and, along with a new cutting table, allows the company print on heat sensitive material and to cut and finish a wide range of jobs it could not have coped with previously in-house.
Stylize was founded 25 years go Neil Saville who has steadily invested in the latest technology.
It now employs ten staff including Neil’s sons, Kane who operates the Anapurna H3200i and Damon who manages overall production.
Kane explained: “We use a great deal of acrylic material and often print white on the reverse. This work tends to be produced at best quality mode but even so the output speed is still impressive.
“The LED lights will provide a cost saving on replacement bulbs and now there’s no wasted time waiting for the machine to warm up. Most importantly, the quality is fantastic.”
Damon added: “Each time we have invested in a new printer we have looked at all the options but I have to say Agfa has always won the business.”
