CJ Graphics adds Onset and Kala systems
CJ Graphics Inc. of Mississauga, Ont., has added more new printing technology to its recently opened 240,000-square-foot plant. The company has added an Inca Onset UV flatbed inkjet printer, distributed exclusively through Fujifilm, to its growing digital large-format division.
The Onset is capable of reaching printing speeds of up to 4,300 square feet per hour, which equates to 80 5 x 10-foot beds per hour, while also providing a range of finishes from low-glare satin to high-impact gloss.
CJ Graphics explains Onset’s 8-colour ink configuration – CMYK-Light Cyan-Light Magenta-Orange+White – is designed to expand the colour gamut by 30 percent over earlier generations of the system. This colour configuration, explains CJ Graphics, allows for the matching of Pantone colours and for smoother colour transitions of light colours and skin tones.
CJ Graphics also added to its laminator line up through Laminating Choice Canada, including a Kala Arkane D hot and cold laminator. With the option of top and bottom heated rollers, CJ Graphics explains the Arkane is well suited for cold PSA laminate applications and for media requiring heat during application. The Arkane is designed to handle roll-to-roll applications of up to 65 inches wide.
CJ Graphics also installed a new Kala AppliKator flatbed laminator and mounting table. The Kala AppliKator is a 67-inch wide x 14.5-foot long flatbed system, whereby the pressure on its roller is provided by rapid action electric motors located on both sides of the machine. It does not require compressed air. The three pressure-level settings are designed to provide precise media pressures across the entire table.
