SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn., Dec. 11 -- Gerber Scientific, Inc.'s sign making and specialty graphics subsidiary, Gerber Scientific Products, Inc. (GSP), unveiled the most recent addition to its growing portfolio of world-class imaging systems at the United States Sign Council (USSC) show, Atlantic City Convention Center.
The Gerber Jetster is a new wide-format piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet printer designed to provide industry professionals with an extensive range of applications. Printing directly onto a variety of specially treated vinyls and other materials, all of which have been tested and certified by GSP for use with the Jetster, it accommodates media widths of up to 62 inches and offers resolutions ranging from 180 dpi to 1440 dpi with exceptional image quality. Additionally, its eco-solvent inks are practically odor-free and complement GSP's existing family of environmentally friendly, user-safe imaging technologies.
Marc T. Giles, president and chief executive officer of Gerber Scientific, Inc., said, "The introduction of the Gerber Jetster is a solid example of our commitment to our sign making customers, and its unique features and media sets offer them a highly economical solution for durable, wide-format inkjet printing."
The Jetster uses six colors to create an exceptionally broad spectrum of colors and achieve excellent spot simulation: dual integrated dryers fuse the inks onto Jetster media for instant UV, chemical and abrasion resistance without lamination for most applications. Other important benefits include incredibly quick setup time, ease-of-use, and minimal maintenance.
"The attributes of the Gerber Jetster, when combined with an affordable price point and low ink consumption, position it very attractively within the marketplace," added Elaine A. Pullen, president of Gerber Scientific Products, Inc. and senior vice president of Gerber Scientific, Inc. "And, the Jetster is now part of GSP's Matched Technology System, established to thoroughly test each product for performance, accuracy, reliability, bonding, and durability, and ensure a seamless integration between all of our software, equipment and media products."
