Unprecedented FESPA success for IGS UK's Elements

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Following its successful attendance at FESPA, IGS UK has announced that the launch of its Elements green wide-format printing solutions met with unprecedented approval from end users and distributors world-wide. The company's Atom printers, which incorporate Epson MicroPiezo TFP print-heads, combined with proprietary H2O water-based durable inks, Krypton Eco-Media materials and Chromium RIP, generated high levels of interest as a low-cost highly productive environmentally friendly turn-key system.

Benefiting from low running costs and the ability to be used with a standard electricity supply, the Elements Atom 24 and Atom 44 printers were demonstrated producing output direct to a wide range of compatible materials. Suitable media includes the full gamut of display options up to 1.5 mm in thickness, plus uncoated and untreated aluminium, fabrics, banners, canvases and vinyls.

The Elements H2O inks contain no hazardous chemicals and are completely odourless, with their durability making them ideal for interior and exterior applications. Matched with Krypton Eco-Media, the results on all materials are vibrant and sharp on both coated and uncoated products.

As a specialist international distributor of quality wide-format solutions, IGS UK reports that interest from resellers was exceptionally high at FESPA. Managing director, Nick Wintle, comments: "We knew the Elements family was going to generate excitement at the show with our emphasis on bringing to market an integrated truly green printing solution. Nonetheless, we were amazed at the levels of demand for our enterprising and realistic system.

"Our attendance at FESPA also proved to IGS UK that we are well ahead of comparable technologies intending to move into greener production," Wintle continues. "The introduction of our Elements range has been timed to come to market at a time where environmental practices need to be combined with more durable output and low running costs – at a very competitive price."

Based on industry-proven Epson Stylus Pro printers, the Elements Atom range is modified to facilitate the use of Elements H2O's proprietary outdoor durable heat-cured water-based resin inks. By incorporating Epson's MicroPiezo TFP (Thin Film Piezo) technology, precise dot placement is matched with high performance criteria and excellent print-head durability.
