Exhibition stand design and build contractor Quadrant2Design has become the first company in the UK to adopt InkTec’s Jextrix XGR320 roll-to-roll LED UV printer, using it to produce exclusive exhibition stand photo floors, doubling print capacity and producing vibrant and accurate print.

The new printer joins the company’s fleet of three Epson SureColor SC-S80600 machines, a 1.6m EFI Pro 16H UV hybrid printer, and finishing arsenal of two Zund cutters and two Seal laminators. Part of the company’s Prestige Events System is a unique all-graphic exhibition stand solution that centres on attention-grabbing high-quality graphics and integrated bespoke features, the company’s photo floor graphics are claimed to be unique and are said represent an additional way to make the most of valuable exhibition space.

Quadrant’s Carl Garner-Watts told Digital Printer, ‘We selected the Jetrix XGR320  for a number of reasons – the quality of ink and vibrant colours, the low running costs of consumables and the dual heads which provide excellent print speed without compromising print quality.

‘We use the printer with a single print media, so don’t need the big box of tricks you get with an Agfa or EFI. It gave us everything we needed at an excellent price point.’

The Jextrix XGR320 was launched at Fespa in Munich in May 2023. The 3.2m LED UV printer features Ricoh Gen6 printheads complemented by heavy-duty components for smooth media feeding and which allow for printing on heavy materials, supporting rolls up to 200kg. Quadrant’s choice of the machine is its first installation in the UK.
