Muratex MPT1800

Your Print Specialists is set to bring new partners to Sign and Digital UK, providing complementary solutions for its ‘three routes to profitability’ initiative.

Now the exclusive authorised vendor for the Muratex range of calenders and fixation units in the UK, YPS will sell and support both roll-to-roll and cut-sheet options in various sizes, ranging from 1.8 to 3.2m. Recognised for its accuracy and reliability in crucial areas, such as media transport, heat control and pneumatic tensioning, the Muratex MPT1800 calendar or MDF1800 fixation unit is bundled with the Mimaki TS300-1800 at an attractive sub-£40k price point in a special deal available only at the show.

High-quality substrates are also vital to profitability, which is why YPS has concluded arrangements with DigiDelta for its Decal range. Decal offers a wealth of media for both direct-to-texile and two-step sublimation printing; this Portuguese manufacturer’s specially formulated options include lined and unlined flag and textile banner materials, as well as transfer papers and specialist materials for wallcoverings and other interior decoration applications.

British manufacturer Brook International is also joining the YPS roster, allowing the north-east based supplier to provide an array of new textile materials to the UK market. This diverse and unique range comprises materials for soft signage, flags and fabric-based banners, as well as media optimised for canvas, promotional, decorative and homeware applications. The Brook International portfolio contains products suited to dye-sublimation as well as solvent and UV-curable processes, greatly enhancing the matched media offering now available via YPS.

Additionally, YPS will carry the Beaver Paper selection of TexPrint sublimation papers. Incorporating cut-sheet and roll-based options, TexPrint sports a high-release, quick-dry formula that will suit sign and graphics printers looking to take advantage of rapid but accurate job fulfilment in their new textile set-up.

Finally, visitors to Sign and Digital UK will be able to see finished textile light-boxes thanks to the innovative and easy-to-use Spirit Displays Spirit-TEX system. This tensioned display option uses a simple stitched edging product to enable rapid assembly, eliminating additional costs in finishing while nevertheless delivering a high-quality result.

“Textile printing requires reliability from start to finish, including both the equipment that supports the printer and the media used to produce the rich, accurate images our clients expect,” explains Garry Brown, managing director, YPS. “Our new relationships with Muratex, Brook International, DigiDelta, Beaver Paper and Spirit Displays reflect this need and we are delighted to have brought them together to provide an holistic solution for our customers.”
