Eventureworks boosts flexibility with second Roland
Thursday, May 29, 2014
Eventureworks, the Falkirk-based printer of bespoke cycle jerseys and floor mats, has started running a second Roland VersaArt RE-640 wide-format printer, bought at last month’s Sign and Digital UK show.
The machine joins its first Roland RE-640 installed last December, and in tandem they replace a Mimaki printer. Both Rolands were supplied by Quality Print Services (QPS) in Lancashire.
Eventureworks director Brian Gibb said the company had considered buying one faster machine, but having two “slightly slower, identical” printers would offer flexibility and enable the firm to transfer jobs from one machine to another in the event of any technical difficulties.
The company has worked since 2002 with QPS, which has also supplied Eventureworks with Nazdar inks and provided technical support.
The VersaArt RE-640 can print up to 64 inches wide with image quality up to 1,440x720dpi. It can also support media rolls up to 40kg in weight, and print a maximum 23.1sqm per hour.
Eventureworks offers custom-printed cycle jerseys through its website TheCycleJersey.com, and printed floor mats, banners and fabric window displays via TheFloorPoster.com.
