“The R40-LT is our third Inca press,” said Craig Riethmacher, COO, Middleton Group. “We’ve had nothing but success with Inca products. We are in the visual display business, and we need to be able to print on thick substrates, with a variety of highly creative outputs,” said Riethmacher.
The very first job produced on their Inca R40-LT was a series of rustic-looking wooden plaques for one of North America’s largest home improvement stores.
“The client was very pleased with the output, and we will be receiving additional jobs from them in the future,” said Riethmacher.
Middleton Group is using Fujifilm’s Uvijet OZ ink on the R40-LT, and they are extremely satisfied with the results.
“The quality of Fujifilm’s Uvijet ink is top notch,” said Riethmacher. “One of our current projects involves heat-bending, while printing on quarter-inch acrylic with a curve, for a globally known high-end vacuum manufacturer, and the adhesion is amazing.”
White ink is a well-talked about topic among industry professionals, and the Middleton Group is also experiencing success with Uvijet white ink.
“The white is really opaque, it’s truly amazing,” said Riethmacher. “We manage a lot of work on black signage, and this process is very efficient on the R40-LT. I see us using a lot of white ink. Additionally, the ‘gloss mode’ with the R40-LT looks like UV clear.”
