Press release from the issuing company
LOD, Israel, August 23 2007 - NUR Macroprinters, a leading supplier of wide-format inkjet production printers for the printing industry, today announced that Chun Sung, a Korean-based digital print house, has reported increased productivity and production turnaround time with the addition of another NUR printer to its shop floor.
Founded in Seoul, Korea over a decade ago, Chun Sung supplies large scale Point-Of-Purchase, billboards, banners, and other outdoor advertising applications. Chun Sung has been partnered with NUR for several years, already having purchased NUR's Blue Board, NUR Fresco and NUR Expedio 5000 printers.
"When we set out to improve our digital printing capabilities, we carefully scanned the market in search of the best possible roll-fed inkjet production printer," says Seo Chang Hoo, Owner and President. "After careful market research, we decided to continue with the NUR line. We purchased the NUR Expedio 3200 and we haven't looked back since," he adds.
After receiving several competitor quotations and a comparable offer from Durst, Chun Sung decided to add the NUR Expedio 3200 to their expanding production line. According to machine operators, the new printer proves to be reliable and efficient, while it turns out print jobs in record time. "What's more," comments Chun Sung's production engineer, "is that the NUR team gives us first-class pre- and post-sales technical support. This, combined with the strength of the NUR Expedio 3200 - makes a perfect match for success!"
The NUR Expedio 3200 is a wide-format inkjet production printer suited to meet high volume needs of wide-format and super wide-format digital print service providers. First of its kind, the NUR Expedio 3200 is the first roll-fed wide-format inkjet production printer equipped with UV-curable inks. A super-wide format 3.2m (10.5 ft) inkjet production printer with printing speeds of up to 120 sq.m (1,300 sq.ft) /hr, and is compatible with a wide range of substrates - from uncoated PVC materials, through specialty paper media to textiles.
"We are aware of the challenges facing Korean manufacturers today," says Roni Klein, Managing Director, NUR Asia Pacific Ltd. "Due to the domestic consumer recession, competition is fierce and print prices have dropped considerably. We know that many of our customers struggle to reduce raw costs in order to send more jobs to print. This is precisely where the strength and functionality of the NUR Expedio 3200 comes into play," Klein adds.
Customers around the globe have come to rely on NUR's extensive line of printers and inks to increase productivity and labor costs, and ultimately, offer the fastest ROI. "We benefit from everything NUR has to offer," says Seo Chang Hoo. "With NUR, we have increased our print jobs and are quickly becoming a major player in the Korean digital printing market. It's very simple - we have to stay ahead of the competition, and our new NUR Expedio 3200 is the #1 machine to do just that!"
