Sydney Stone, the exclusive Canadian distributor of Xante Equipment is thrilled to bring Xante’s two exciting new flatbed UV printers to Canada.
The printers were launched at the PRINT 19 Expo in Chicago to thousands of attendees in November 2019. They are now making a debut in the Canadian Print Industry. The X-16 and X-33 UV Printers are designed to meet the needs of commercial and in-plant operations which are seeking economical and compact solutions for printing on the widest range of substrates possible.
“A lot of our clients shy away from flatbed UV printers as they require huge amounts of floor space. The X series solve exactly that,” says Michael Steele, President of Sydney Stone. The X-16 & X-33 are efficient, easy-to-use, highly automated and provide unparalleled output. “They are designed keeping in mind the modern print shop,” he added.
The attendees of the expo were amazed at the printers’ compact profile that fits comfortably in any shop. The X’s include simultaneous printing with white ink and CMYK inks allowing the ability to print on the widest range of substrates including acrylic, metal, glass, ceramics and so much more. Adjustable height print heads for both models accommodate substrates up to 6” tall. The X-33 printer features a 24” x 36” bed with vacuum suction to hold substrates stable during printing. The X-16 features a compact 18” x 24” bed. Both printers deliver high-quality, full-color printing at up to 1440 dpi resolution.
“Xante recognizes the demands placed on today’s commercial print providers for more efficient and varied printing capabilities. Our new flatbed UV printers, the X’s, give them the ability to deliver unique printed materials with amazing quality, easily and quickly, and of course, as with all Xante Products the X’s are driven with our iQueue Adobe Postscript PDF Workflow,” said Robert Ross, President, and CEO of Xante.
The X’s are powered by iQueue, Xante’s Adobe® PostScript® 3 PDF-based workflow software that powers the entire line of Xante’s innovative products. From independent CMYK ink control to color profile management, to variable data printing, to integrated white ink control without modifying the original file, iQueue workflow software is the easiest-to-learn full-featured workflow software available to commercial print providers.
The X-16 and X-33 will be available to purchase in January 2020 at www.printfinishing.com
