Digital Printing-Wide Format - Roll to Roll
Any in-plant still questioning the revenue-generating potential of wide-format printing should speak to Chuck Werninger. In July, his Texas in-plant installed a roll-to-roll printer to handle the surge in demand for COVID-19-related signage. A week later, he ordered two more. Print volumes are exploding.
Chuck Werninger describes how his in-plant's business adopted new Canon UVgel technology to safely reopen the district.
Too often, in-plants invest in wide-format printers without a thought as to how those pieces will be finished. In a session on wide-format finishing during the PRINTING United Digital Experience, one in-plant manager stressed how vital his shop's automated cutting equipment has been.
Wide-format printing is a hot topic for in-plants, and the In-plant Forum explored the possibilities in depth. IPI Editor Bob Neubauer talked with two midwestern university managers about the expansion of wide-format printing in their operations, and reviewed examples of some of their innovative wide-format projects.
Today, the PRINTING United Digital Experience will focus on wide-format finishing and workflow. One panel discussion will feature in-plant manager Richard Beto, of the University of Texas at Austin, who will talk about how his in-plant’s Colex automated cutter has become essential to its business.
After a very successful debut last week, the Wide-Format Summit Series continues on Oct. 15 with sessions on wide-format equipment implementation, new printed textile opportunities, proving the ROI of outdoor advertising and more.
Attendees around the world can sign up online to attend 14 days of education, research, panels, and product launches from leading OEMs and suppliers. And don't miss the In-plant Forum on Nov. 2.
