Inca to launch new Spyder at Fespa 2007

Press release from the issuing company

May 22, 2007 - At Fespa 2007, Inca Digital Printers partners with its distributor Fujifilm Sericol to announce a new addition to the Spyder 320 range. Details of the new Spyder will be announced on the first day of the show and quickly follows the April 2007 launch of the Inca Onset, the world's fastest digital flatbed printer. Although the Inca Onset will not be at Fespa, because the first unit will have already been delivered to a customer in the UK, it will be shown in high-speed action on a large video wall on the Fujifilm Sericol booth A210 supported by a range of samples to show its flexible capabilities. "We are currently undergoing a rapid pace of development and Fespa is the perfect launch pad for the new Spyder model which we expect will create quite a stir in the industry", says Bill Baxter, MD of Inca. The versatile Spyder 320 and Columbia Turbo will be demonstrated live on the Fujifilm Sericol booth printing a range of products using Uvijet ink technology. Fujifilm Sericol Uvijet inks provide an ultra-wide gamut using automotive grade pigments with the highest light fastness rating to ensure print longevity. The result is a unique range of inks that provide the widest colour gamut and the highest quality on a broad range of substrates. Flexibility has contributed to the popularity of the Spyder 320 product line. Since May 2004, Inca Digital has successfully introduced a number of Spyder 320 digital flatbed printer models, including the original 4 colour Spyder 320, the low-cost alternative - Spyder 320-e, Spyder 320+ white and six colour versions and the Spyder 320-8 series which was launched at ISA in April this year. The modular design of the Spyder 320 range allows users to select and adapt the specification of their Inca Spyder printer to suit their business needs or growth plans. The latest edition being launched at Fespa adds even more flexibility. Alongside the Inca Spyder, Inca Digital and Fujifilm Sericol will showcase the Inca Columbia Turbo. First launched in 2004 the printer was (until the recent introduction of the Inca Onset printer), the world's fastest digital UV flatbed printer. The Columbia Turbo prints onto rigid or flexible material up to 40mm (1.57") thick and 3.2m x 1.6m (126" x 63") in size, producing high quality, repeatable results at speeds up to 160sqm/hr (1,720 sqft/hr). Its economical performance makes it ideal for a wide range of applications including large format advertising, signage and exhibition graphics printing. With a wide range of applications and output speeds covered by the Inca Spyder 320 Series, Columbia Turbo and Inca Onset, visitors to the Fujifilm Sericol booth will be able to view systems capable of cost-effectively printing the finest sign, display and exhibition materials.
