Reprographic Technology International (RTI) has announced that it will be showing its Vortex 4200 printer, powered by Memjet, at FESPA 2013. The Vortex 4200 printer will be co-located on the Sepiax Ink Technology stand, N25N.
The Vortex machine targets several print applications, including CAD, AEC, GIS and point-of-sale graphics. Inside the Vortex 4200 is revolutionary Memjet technology with five printheads for single-pass wide format printing of uncompromised speed and quality. Compared to traditional inkjet, the Vortex 4200 prints many times faster for 'incredible' job turnaround times and 'attractive' total cost of ownership.
RTI first showcased the Vortex 4200 in February at an exclusive preview event at Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, UK. According to Peter Barton, EMEA business director for RTI: “Feedback from the 160 attendees was very positive, resulting in both direct sales at the preview and, more importantly, a confirmation that our Vortex 4200 printer is well-positioned to deliver exceptional results and massive productivity gains for CAD, GIS and point-of-sale graphics printing. One of our strengths is the ability to tailor solutions to the needs of our customers. Since this preview event, interest in the Vortex 4200 has been high, and we have conducted customer installations within the UK and Israel. We are also nearing completion of additional dealer agreements within Europe.“
Yaacov Viedas, CEO for Rowe Israel says: "RTI has been helping me with my digital printing needs for many years, and has now brought me the latest in technology with the game-changing Vortex 4200 wide format printer. With this machine, I can see big opportunities to help my customers streamline their print workflow and give them big savings in running costs, manpower, and space requirements."
Erik Norman, RTI’s vice president of sales and marketing, comments, "Momentum with the Vortex 4200 from both a technical and commercial perspective, has been exceptional. Our partner, OWN-X, has already incorporated our initial voice-of-customer feedback from February that attendees will see at FESPA. European and UK dealer response has been positive, and we have solidified our 2013 North American launch plans, with dealer agreements in Canada and US close at hand. In addition to the Vortex 4200, RTI will showcase our complete family of Memjet-powered printers at this year’s Print 13 and SGIA shows in Chicago and Orlando, respectively."
"With Memjet’s technology at the core of the Vortex 4200 printer, we are confident that RTI customers will see what matters most to them: increased wide format printing efficiency and productivity coupled with exceptional results," said Mike Puyot, president of Memjet Wide Format. "We look forward to seeing RTI bring Memjet’s wide format technology to additional markets across the globe."
RTI is also showing the Vortex 4200 at the Igepa Select 2013 event held 13th to 15th June in Potsdam, Germany.
