Colorific announces the launch of its first wide-format print-and-cut machine, the UV640PC. The 1.6m printer combines the benefits of solvent and UV-curable chemistries to provide a ‘viable, cost-effective alternative to latex while offering the photo-realistic print quality critical to many applications at this market level’,  said the manufacturer in a statement released to the press.
“Solvent, eco-solvent and latex have been a mainstay for wide-format houses producing print-and-cut applications, but none is really the perfect solution,” explains Shaun Holdom, business development director at Colorific. “The UV640PC addresses their conventional disadvantages and turns them into major positives. We’re confident that the extension of Lightbar into print-and-cut will offer phenomenal advantages, and we look forward to taking the UV640PC on tour this year.”
The UV640PC incorporates Epson’s new print-head technology, the DX7, furnishing users with resolutions reaching up to 1,440dpi. Production mode allows for 21sq m/hour, making banner and billboard jobs ready to hang the minute they come off the printer.
