According to MCT’s Co-founder and Chairman, Steen Mikkelsen, the marketplace today feels much like it did when he introduced i-cut to the early grand format UV printing market in the early 2000s.
At that time, such printers were finally beginning to come into their own, and early adopters, mainly from the Screen Print market, who had been successfully using I-cut encouraged their new found grand format printer manufacturers to integrate with digital finishing to allow them to become even more productive. Steen says that, “2018 has this same feeling. As I travel the country, I am seeing the same kind of acceptance for digitally printed fabrics as we saw in 2001 for vinyl and rigid materials, and everybody indicating they need a laser cutter to successfully achieve a profitable fabric operation.”
While MCT’s VersaTech2 Laser has been quite successful in the upper tier of this marketplace, it did not offer an entry level solution for that market. Therefore, MCT has decided to streamline its solution, without giving up any of the performance of its new “horizontal” Laser and provide a laser only system at an attractive price starting at $169,000 with a 100-watt water-cooled American-made laser.
These systems will also be capable of being upgraded to full VersaTech2 solutions at a later date, allowing buyers to take advantage of what they need today, but still expand their options later on systems that last well over 10 years in the field.
MCT will begin selling these solutions immediately with deliveries in 8-12 weeks after receipt of order.
