U.S. Display Group taps into digital printing technology through the purchase of a Barberan Jetmaster Digital Press
Tullahoma, TN: U.S. Display Group has announced the purchase of a new piece of printing technology – the Barberan Jetmaster Digital Printer.
U.S. Display Group, a leading independent point-of-purchase manufacturer, became one of the first companies in the U.S. to purchase a Barberan Jetmaster high-speed single-pass LED inkjet press. Barberan Corporation, headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, manufactures the machine and was the first company to address the need for higher production speeds in the analog-to-digital transformation. This transformation is necessary in corrugated print supply chains for both graphic packaging and point-of-purchase displays.
According to Greg Moore, President of U.S. Display Group, the piece of equipment that USDG purchased is a 66" wide, 6-color LED inkjet machine that can print sheets up to 120" in length. The Barberan Jetmaster is capable of running at speeds up to an amazing 190 feet per minute with print resolutions up to 360 dpi. U.S. Display Group is expecting the machine to be installed in their Tullahoma, TN facility this summer.
Garret Bradley, President of Barberan Corrugated US said, "After their evaluation of the current offerings, we feel very fortunate to have been selected as a partner for U.S. Display Group. They understand how the technology is evolving and the value it will bring to their clients and prospects. For me, it reinforces the quality of our product offering and our value proposition on the consumables side. With several ink suppliers and your ability to choose, you keep control of the number one cost of these machines. You don’t get that option with the other manufacturers."
“We are excited to bring this game changing technology to our customers” said Moore. While there are a few of these machines already in production, U.S. Display Group is one of the first display companies to obtain this technology. Moore stated, “Digital printing continues to evolve and will have more of an impact as we move forward. Having a high-speed digital press that can maintain high quality printing specifications will make an immediate impact on our business.”
Moore elaborated on the impact the Barberan Jetmaster will have on U.S. Display Group by adding, “Among the benefits of digital printing are shortened lead times, reduced waste, less tooling costs and faster set up times on smaller quantities. This will provide opportunities for customized packaging and display strategies that will increase sales for our customers.”
When asked what he was most excited about regarding this new piece of machinery, Moore stated, “Utilizing digital printing in the corrugated industry can prove to be very advantageous. We are excited to be on the front end of this technology and are eager to bring these benefits to our customers.”
