Simpson Print installs SwissQPrint Nyala
Simpson Print of Bloomingdale, Ontario, in February 2018 installed a new SwissQPrint Nyala LED large-format inkjet system to expand its range of digital services.
Founded more than 50 years ago, Simpson Print is one of the country’s most-diverse printing operations running high-quality screen printing presses, a 40-inch Komori LS640 UV press and digital presses, including a 6-colour HP Indigo, as well as a range of post-production capabilities – with a team of kitting specialists.
“The Swiss Q represents the future of our digital wide format legacy,” said Simpson Print President, Carla Johanns. “Simpson Print views investment in technology as critical to our clients’ print marketing and branding requirements. Each of our new acquisitions furthers our commitment to our all-under-one-roof capability. This is a wonderful new addition to our UV offset and high-resolution screen print capabilities.”
Simpson Print’s new Nyala is a high-speed, 8-colour + White (CMYKlclm – Violet, Orange and White) system. The company plans to focus its new large-format technology on a range of display graphics applications like P.O.P, banners and decals, among similar marketing work.
The Nyala LED was introduced in May 2017 as an updated version of swissQprint’s existing engines, based on the addition of LED-curing technologies and a range of mechanical improvements. For example, the system’s beam architecture was reworked for more stability and swissQprint also ensured that the flatbed is indeed perfectly flat over its entire surface – 3.2 × 2 metres with the Nyala LED.
