Itarus Ltd, the highly specialised packaging mock-up and prototyping company, has installed a SIGNRACER 1610 HD Gen. 5s, flatbed printer, supplied and supported by sole UK distributor, NDI (Nth Degree Ltd).

With an impressive list of Global Clients and a 28-year history, Northampton-based Itarus, provides tailored prepress services for packaging within the FMCG community. Paul Tarpley, Quality Executive at Itarus told us, “Our purchasing decision wasn’t based solely on an equipment specification. We wanted to partner with a supplier with a very high degree of colour knowledge; one that could work with us on projects and one that understood our marketplace, NDI are, without a doubt that partner. That said, we had heard good things about Signracer devices and our decision to purchase the Signracer printer has proved to be absolutely spot on. The quality the device delivers is exceptional. With the 2.5 picolitre drop size option, we are producing the finest and most detailed of work within our mock-up studio. The quality of ink is also fantastic. In choosing new devices, our main criteria aside from high quality, ink adhesion and speed was the ability to print very small text and design elements without excessive laydown of ink.”

“The flatbed devices with the ability to produce a 2.5 picolitre dot, hand in hand with the Signracer PremiumFlex HD UV ink, has been a revelation, and that is no exaggeration. We are also amazed at how little ink the units use.”

The Signracer 1610 HD Gen 5 is available in two to eight-colour versions that include light cyan and light magenta, white and a clear varnish.
