Press release from the issuing company

Mortsel, Belgium – 27 August 2004 – Agfa announced its plans to showcase its large-format digital printing systems at the Viscom/ProSign (International Trade Fairs for Visual Advertising Techniques and Signmaking) to be held in Paris, France (15-17 September), Madrid, Spain, (7-9 October), Dusseldorf, Germany (21-23 October), Milan, Italy (4-6 November). Systems shown and demonstrated will include the top-of-the-range :Grand Sherpa Universal 87, a high-speed production machine for indoor and outdoor applications with output up to 40 sq.m./hour, as well as the :Grand Sherpa Universal 64. This mid-range machine has proved to be very popular owing to its balance of cost, speed and printing width. In addition, the Agfa booth will show the :Sherpa 44m poster printing system for indoor applications as well as the :Sherpa 24m with :SelectJet inkjet film for screen printing. Printed samples from the :Dotrix inkjet press will also be on display at the booth. “Last year’s shows signalled a successful entry into this market for Agfa and we have come a long way in just one year,” said Agfa’s director of the large-format digital printing business, David Preskett. ”In just one year, we have sold and installed over 200 machines in Europe alone. Our offering is unique thanks to Agfa’s unparalleled imaging expertise delivering quality, cost savings and speed to end users in the outdoor signage and visual communications businesses.”
