In a bid to expand its service offerings, Surrey, B.C.-based Surrey Digital Printing has become the first printer in the province to acquire an AccurioWide 200 wide-format printer from Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd.
“We knew we wanted to start bringing large format projects in-house for our customers, and we went with Konica Minolta due to the exceptional quality of service and support we were already receiving with our three small format Konica Minolta printers,” said Surrey Digital’s vice president Jared Cotterill. “Our AccurioWide 200 has been exceptional so far, allowing us to print high-quality projects for our customers on almost every substrate possible, including foamcore, aluminum, wood, and glass.” Surrey Digital is a printing firm with strong roots in reprographics that has evolved to include specialty wide format along with small format solutions.
Since the installation of the AccurioWide 200 in December 2019, Surrey Digital – which was founded in 2006 – has already grown its product offering and client base, and expects to double its wide format revenue in 2020. According to Konica Minolta, wide-format printing has applications in every industry, from engineering, construction, and architecture to education and real estate.
“We are so excited that Surrey Digital has expanded their Konica Minolta portfolio to become the first in B.C. to install the AccurioWide 200,” Mike Wildbore, Konica Minolta’s director of business development, wide-format printing. “They have already put out some fantastic wide-format work with the new technology, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next. We look forward to helping them continue to grow and reach new markets.”
Konica Minolta’s AccurioWide 200 is equipped with UV LED lamps that enable it to print on a wider range of substrates, the company said, and up to a width of 2.0 metres. The device is equipped with Konica Minolta 1024i print heads with UV ink technology to incorporate more colour pigment per droplet, enabling what Konica Minolta calls “stunning image quality” up to 1440 dpi while reducing ink consumption per square foot compared to other printers on the market.
