Oasis Graphic Co has taken delivery of a new Hewlett Packard Z6200, 1,524mm printer.
The large-format aqueous ink printer has a "formidable pedigree" and boasted good colour accuracy over previous models and comparable printers, said the print firm in Cookham, Berkshire.
The Z6200 will be used to print onto paper, canvas and backlit films using an eight-ink system designed to create uniform gloss and reduce the appearance of bronzing.
Managing director Simon Osborne said the Z6200 was one of the fastest printers in its class and joined Oasis’ existing stable of two Canon aqueous ink printers to help the company increase capacity and speed.
"Each new investment in printer technology moves our business forward in terms of speed, efficiency and capacity, but they must be underpinned by sound business reasoning," he said.
"One of our newest clients asked us if we could match the output from their previous large-format print supplier, which used a Z6200 for their work. This proved to be the perfect opportunity to respond to a customer need.
Osborne's 16-strong set up offers print and finishing, and digital kit includes an 3.2m-wide EFI Vutek GS3250 flatbed UV printer, two Mimaki JV33 roll-to-roll solvent printers, a 1.6m wide and two 1.5m-wide Canon IPF 9000 12-colour water-based inkjet devices.
