Graphic Printing Technologies (GPT) says it has used its extensive experience and expertise to develop a unique 1.9m wide printer based on an existing Mimaki machine. The new GPT 190s can print high speed mode at 35 Mtr.Sq / Hr (540dpi x 720dpi - good quality banner mode), standard speed at 24 Mtr.Sq / Hr (540dpi x 1080dpi - good quality vinyl mode) and highest quality at 15 Mtr.Sq / Hr (720dpi x 1440dpi - highest quality vinyl mode. The GPT 190S can only be purchased GPT and incorporates double print heads (as the JV34 260) to deliver the additional speed.
The printer has been created by adapting an existing Mimaki textile printer and includes a full 2 year parts and labour warranty, Mimaki inks and Mimaki RIP. The GPT 190s also has an optional trough for unbacked mesh materials, and an optional Mimaki bulk ink system for cheaper ink costs.
Stuart Cole, general manager of GPT, says, “This is what many of our customers have requested. It provides all the benefits of the JV33 160, more akin to the JV34 for speed with the double heads, a unique 1.9mtr print width, and is incredibly good value for money."
The new printer will be available exclusively from GPT from January 2013.
