The Agfa device was installed at the company’s facility in September of last year, increasing its huge stable of super wide-format print machines.

The Jeti Tauro H3300 is a hybrid UV LED wide-format press that allows manual, continuous and automated feeding of both rigid and flexible materials. It boasts 60 fast-firing Ricoh Gen 5 printheads, each with four nozzle rows offering two colours per head.

Speaking about the impact it has had on business, SWD’s Luke Drogan says the machine has far surpassed the company’s initial expectations when it first saw the press in action in 2018.

“We visited Agfa in Antwerp at the global launch of the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED in 2018 and were impressed at the resolution and output of the machine in the demonstrations,” Drogan says.

When we ultimately installed the Jeti Tauro and put it through initial testing it performed even better than we had anticipated, which was a great bonus to us

“But when we ultimately installed the Jeti Tauro and put it through initial testing it performed even better than we had anticipated, which was a great bonus to us.

“We found three immediate benefits. The first was the impressive level of quality at high speed. Secondly, the coverage capability of its high-speed white ink and finally the primer feature, which allows us to print on materials that are usually difficult for inks to adhere to.

“The Jeti Tauro was a press that we hadn’t desperately needed as a business, but is now one that we definitely can’t do without.”
