Snitec Appointed Distributor for Lightbar

Tuesday, March 03, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

UK-based CSL are proud to announce that Snitec has been appointed distributor of the Lightbar in Italy. Snitec has a long history of distributing printers and cutting plotters in Italy and other countries in Europe. They have always been at the forefront of innovation and have a tradition of selling solutions adapted to the needs of the end users. Snitec is based in picturesque Merano, not far from Bolzano and services the whole of Italy.

“Mixing the best printers, with the best RIP-software and finishing equipment has always been a priority of ours” says Thomas Schönweger, Technical Director of Snitec. “When we first saw the Lightbar we very quickly understood the benefits. Immediate drying is a game-changer, with a huge impact on work-flow. So many printers claim bottle necks due to the minimum 24 hour degassing period with solvent inks. The increased adhesion is the icing on the cake with less need to laminate with further savings of time and money. What’s more, the vivid glossy colours make these inks an excellent solution for sign-makers”.

CSL is currently undertaking an industry education campaign explaining the huge cost benefits between Lightbar technology and Latex technology. Their innovative “Did You Know?” campaign has created a buzz in the industry with thousands of “hits”. It explains that the Lightbar user will save thousands of euros per year in running costs compared to an equivalent latex category machine. Savings on energy, print-heads and inks (not to mention capping and optimizer) mean that a Lightbar system can pay for itself in savings very quickly.
