Moscow-based Glav Print, a specialist in high quality indoor printing predominantly for the cosmetics industry, is the first company in the World to order a Uvistar Pro8 at drupa 2012. The sale was made through Fujifilm’s Russian distributor AT DESIGN.

Natalia Fomina, president at Glav Print comments, “We have been doing work for indoor printing applications in niche markets over the last 10 years and now we have a lot of customers and orders so we need additional capacity to satisfy them. When we heard about the new Uvistar Pro8 from Fujifilm through our contacts at AT DESIGN we were immediately interested. Having seen the speed that the machine is capable of, combined with the quality that our customers in the cosmetics industry are looking for, and knowing the reliability of all products from Fujifilm, we had no hesitation in placing an order.”

He continues, “We are completely confident that the Uvistar Pro8 is going to broaden our business base, and backed up by the fantastic level of local technical service that AT DESIGN offers us, as well as a reliable supply of inks and spare parts, we are very excited about what this will mean for our business.”

The Uvistar Pro8, launched at drupa 2012, is particularly suited to producing super-wide format print for both display POP and outdoor advertising markets on flexible and rigid media. It has been developed in combination with Fujifilm’s brand new Uvijet QN inks, to meet the growing demands of indoor applications, where viewing distances tend to be closer and rigid materials are more commonly used.

One of its major advancements is the inclusion of a complete set of light colours within the ink set which increase print quality without compromising on print speed. Together with its unique Parallel Drop Size (PDS) technology, this allows the printer to produce high definition Display POP graphics at speeds in excess of 300m2/hour.

Glav Print has ordered the 3m version of the Uvistar Pro8 on the stand at drupa, but has already expressed interest in the 5m version sometime in the future.
