Sussex, Wis. – The Mosaica Group, a national distributor supporting dye sublimation and wide format print processes with equipment, consumables and services, is the exclusive distributor of the revolutionary high-speed Panthera digital dye sublimation printing system in the U.S. and Canada.
The Panthera S4 is available in both 1.8m and 3.2m widths. Each S4 model has four Kyocera print heads that achieve speeds up to 4,000 square feet per hour. Panthera printing systems feature a specially-developed print head controller that offers better precision and printing quality, along with an anti-crash system on the carriage to protect the print heads from incorrectly hitting the transfer paper. The printer offers a flawless roll-to-roll feeding system that helps to eliminate paper waste. The Panthera is able to use low-weight paper (as low as 22 gsm) due to a highly-sophisticated tension control system.
The latest enhancement to the Panthera S4 is the ability to print directly to certain coated fabrics. Historically, dye sublimation printers print direct to transfer paper or direct to fabric, but are not able to print to both due to both processes requiring different ink chemistry. Not only is the Panthera able to seamlessly print to transfer paper, but it can print directly to certain coated fabrics without changing the ink or adjusting the workflow settings.
Panthera printing systems are much easier to operate and perform more routine maintenance checks than any other printer on the market. It has proven higher productivity because of less cleaning and less maintenance requirements. Panthera printers can be controlled from any place in the world using a mobile device (Intelligent Camera System required).
“I’m excited to see our clients become early adopters of the Panthera,” said Randy Peters, President and CEO, The Mosaica Group. “This printer guarantees sustainability in regards to color consistency, print quality and advanced productivity at the lowest cost of ownership. We have clients that are experiencing an amazing improvement in output within the first month compared to their previous dye sublimation printers.”
In tandem with launching the Panthera, The Mosaica Group offers a complete dye sublimation portfolio that encompasses everything from tissue paper to ink and features both classic and premium high-performance dye sublimation transfer papers. Utilizing a unique new coating formulation, SupremeJETTM releases up to 20 percent more ink than other transfer papers being used in the market today, resulting in significant ink savings without sacrificing color performance, vibrancy or density.
