Yorkshire based imageData Group has chosen to install the :M-Press Tiger at their Howden site. The new press is supplied by THIEME KPX and will be installed later this year.
imageData Group Chairman Roger Birkin explains: “We have been involved with the :M-Press project from the very beginning, and have closely watched its development and progress. We believe that the new :M-Press Tiger now delivers the speed, the quality and the cost-of-ownership that will make a significant contribution to our production capacity alongside our other investments.”
imageData Group CEO David Danforth adds: “We have elected to make this significant investment at this time in order to meet specific customer needs. This system supports our ongoing efforts to grow the development of our large and medium format digital print capabilities.”
THIEME KPX Managing Director Bill Kippax says “The :M-Press is built on a Thieme screen printing base and adds the new :M-Press Tiger UV inkjet shuttle. It makes the system 300 percent more productive than the original M-Press with an even higher quality output.
With virtually no set-up time required, the effective output of the :M-Press TIGER is equal to traditional screen printing for the majority of common screen printing run-lengths. We are delighted that imageData Group has selected the :M-Press Tiger as their next major investment. imageData Group has had traditional Thieme screen presses for 8 years, and we are pleased to be able to continue the relationship into the digital era with Agfa Graphics :M-Press Tiger.
