In order to bring its superwide-format print quality standards up to the same level as that produced on its existing VUTEk 3.2m GS3250, Hollywood Monster has invested in an EFI VUTEk GS5000, which was supplied and installed by UK authorised distributor, CMYUK Digital. The company opted for the five-metre machine in order to boost its existing production at this width, thus bringing greater versatility across roll-fed applications and optimising the consistency of its results.
Based in Tyseley, Birmingham, Hollywood Monster, which works with many of the largest names in retail, commercial property and construction, sport, television and theatre, has complemented its flair for Innovation with careful investment in the best production equipment and, with the right mix of talent and skill, the company maintains its leading place ahead of the competition.
As it was essential that it achieve the same colour matching standards across its high-end UV-curable platforms, Director Simon McKenzie, believed it made sense to stick with VUTEk machines, although he admitted that the company did review other options. He said: “The advantage of having another VUTEk is that we enjoy the same productivity software, RIP and colour management capabilities so that it is easy to deliver identical results, regardless of the media we’re using and, as the interface is the same, it is easier and quicker for the operator to set up each job, which is an important element when a fast change-over is required.”
He concluded: “The VUTEk GS5000r also brings us additional benefits, as its versatility means that we can work with multiple rolls to produce three, 1.62m wide jobs simultaneously, while the high opacity white ink has an advanced three-layering capability so that we can easily use non-white and coloured materials. As far as we are concerned, it’s an all round winner!”
