We chose ATPColor for a mix of quality, performance, compactness, ease of use, low investment values, and low energy consumption.
Sabrina Infante: "So far, only a few fitters have spontaneously asked us to replace PVC with fabric, but most customers are beginning to perceive its aesthetic value."
The printed fabric is ready for finishing
Obtaining printed fabric ready to be finished translates for Idealgraphics to more intuitive operations and less need for operators to load and unload rolls.
"The fabric market is still marginal, and overinvesting or burdening our workflows would have been illogical," Infante points out. "We want the best technologies, but they have to be compatible with the budget and not impact the price of the finished product too much."
Additional pluses of ATPColor's offering include no annual service contracts and the simplicity of routine operator-performed maintenance.
The DFP56EW dye-sub printer
Six months after installation, the DFP56-EW is already active 8 hours a day, six days a week—an achievement made possible by the introduction of new products and the migration of orders from latex and UV.
The DFP56EW is capable of producing up to 119 sqm/h at 600 dpi, with a drop size of 7 pl.
The chosen configuration is CMYK plus two channels of TCT penetrating fluid, used to print flags and double-sided backdrops in a single pass. .
