Banking on Agfa


W.A.E Group, the Leeds based sign and display company, has recently extended its Agfa printer portfolio with the addition of an Anapurna M2050, a purchase that forms part of £300k investment which the company has made in new equipment during the past 12 months.

W.A.E, which produces a wide range of signs and display material using a variety of processes, including silkscreen and inkjet, originally installed an Anapurna XL five years ago, followed by an Agfa Jeti printer, using the roll-to-roll option it offered to fulfil the demands of a t a large retail account.

The Anapurna M2050 is a high-speed UV curable inkjet system that prints directly onto a wide variety of both rigid and flexible media to provide top class productivity, offering speeds of up to 53m²/hr, and eight (CMYK Lc Lm, 2 x white) 12 picolitre heads that deliver good solid colours and fine text reproduction as small as 6pt, as well a good tonal rendering. The white ink option also makes it ideal for use with clear and dark substrates.  Maintenance is easy and as well as offering low ink consumption, ink levels are monitored by the printer’s automatic ink refill system during production.

W.A. E. has built a reputation as a one-stop nationwide signage service and services the sign and print requirements of a broad range of customers, including estate management companies, property developers, construction companies, education establishments, sports venues and local government as well as large corporate companies.  Its recent investment in new equipment has enabled it to increase production and quality of output and profitability.

Explaining his company’s investment philosophy, Managing Director Paul Austin said:  “ In order to remain successful we feel it is vital for us to keep pace with the improvements and increased productivity offered by the latest developments in inkjet technology and, with its facility to offer top print speeds on a wide selection of different media, the Anapurna M2050 was our obvious next purchase.  Furthermore, since we have worked with Agfa for many years now we have the extra assurance of knowing that its service and support is excellent.  We are confident that this machine will work in tandem with our older machines to fulfil the increasingly exacting demands of our clients.”
