AB Print Group invests in an Acuity LED 1600

Yorkshire-based AB Print Group has become the latest company to invest in an Acuity LED 1600 from Fujifilm, which will enable it to keep ahead of customer demands and meet all print requirements in-house without the need for outsourcing.

James Kemp, Print Manager at AB Print Group, explained: “We are a full service print production company and the new Acuity LED 1600 is a very welcome addition to our portfolio. It is an outstanding printer for fine art, detailed and delicate work, and very cost-effective for low volume runs, which gives us the capability to print the highest quality print on demand and profitably.”

He went on to reveal that the speed of the Acuity LED 1600 was another key feature, when it came to making a buying decision, saying: “We deal with hundreds of client accounts across multiple sectors, so the Acuity’s speed and flexibility has been invaluable, as it can quickly produce a diverse range of products on a wide range of substrates. Low run, high quality labels have been especially successful, as have applications that require printing with the white ink option. We’ve even started printing our own business cards on them and these have made quite an impression.”

With significant investments in technology and machinery made over recent years, AB Print Group provides an extensive range of printing services, ranging fromlitho and screenprinting to large format and small format digital print, all under the one roof. The company also specialises in providing coatings for the printing trade as well as offering laminating, CAD cutting, die cutting and fold & stitching.

The Acuity LED 1600 is a large format hybrid UV printer designed to deliver exceptional print results in the most environmentally friendly way. Its unique hybrid design enables it to easily and quickly convert from roll to rigid media and this, combined with Fujifilm’s Uvijet ink, printheads and curing system, ensures smooth, high speed and near-photographic print on a diverse range of substrates, including PET film, PETG, self-adhesive vinyl and conventional PVC, stock paper, board and even lightweight aluminium.

James Kemp concluded: “Although we did consider a range of options, it was the combination of the Acuity’s advanced technology and Fujifilm’s great service that swayed us in favour of this machine.

“We have been investing in Inca Spyders, sold to us and supported by Fujifilm, since 2004, so have considerable experience both in printing with UV ink and of Fujifilm’s service and support and our  investment in the Acuity LED 1600 has once again confirmed our faith in Fujifilm and its products.”
