The Swiss manufacturer of large format printers, swissQprint, is celebrating the installation of its 100th machine in the UK, as Stocksigns takes delivery of its latest Impala flatbed printer.A long-standing client of swissQprint, Stocksigns has been using a first-generation Impala since 2010.
This was the 15th swissQprint machine to be placed in the UK at the time, and it helped the business transition from silk screen to digital printing. The quality, reliability, and stress-free operation across a range of substrates, made swissQprint the likely partner of choice when it came to upgrading. However, the business still undertook a full market review before selecting swissQprint once again.
A perfect match
Research to find the perfect replacement for Stocksigns’ existing Impala was wide-reaching: everything from seeking testimonials from current users, lifetime ROI analysis, hands-on competitor comparisons and a full demonstration across a variety of substrates and materials. This ensured the Impala was once again the perfect machine for the business.
Expertise & sustainability
The operators’ prior knowledge of swissQprint technology, combined with the support of their UK team, played a crucial role in the decision-making process. swissQprint’s commitment to keeping its environmental impact low was also a key factor.
With a reduction in energy consumption to 2.2 kWh, the fourth-generation Impala brings increased sustainability and productivity to Stocksigns. Also, the solvent and VOC free UV-curable inks are Greenguard Gold certified.Doubling the output The swissQprint Impala, equipped with CMYK plus white will be at the very front line of Stocksigns growth and development.
With its installation, the firm anticipates production times will halve, doubling capacity in the manufacture of its health & safety, statutory and construction site signage.
