Graphic Printing Technologies D30 For the fourth consecutive year, Graphic Printing Technologies (GPT) takes its place amongst the major players in the sign-making industry at Sign and Digital UK. Following on from the success of its Open Days in January, Sign and Digital UK is an excellent opportunity for sign-makers across the country to see the broadest range of wide format digital printing solutions in one place. GPT will be demonstrating the latest printers from Mimaki,


Epson, Canon and Agfa as well as cutters from Zund and RIPs from Shiraz and Wasatch. As well as GPT’s expert consultants, the stand will also have representatives from each of the manufacturers who will be able to demonstrate the products and answer questions. Brand new on the stand will also be the first chance in the UK


to see the new Epson SureColour-S30600 solvent based inkjet printer and the new Zund S3 digital cutter. Stuart Cole, General Manager of GPT, says, “Last year’s show


was particularly strong for selling off the stand. We are really confident that this year’s show will continue this trend and aim to impress visitors with the broadest range of top-class printing solutions available anywhere at the show.” www.g-p-t.co.uk


Graphtec GB Ltd G60


Graphtec GB will be demonstrating its flagship FC8000 and budget-priced CE5000 plotter/cutters and the recently launched Silhouette CAMEO desktop cutter. The company will also announce the imminent launch of a new label printer and hopes to have an example of this on show. Unprecedented accuracy and speed of production are


guaranteed on all Graphtec cutters due to the incorporation of the company’s proprietary ARMS 4.0 (Advanced Registration Mark System) facility that uses four-point registration rather than the traditional three to greatly enhance the cutters’ capabilities. The FC8000 machine is designed for use by companies with


higher productivity levels and is described as the ‘fastest in class’ plotter/cutter currently available, with a maximum speed of 1,485 mm/sec. The budget-priced CE5000 machine offers many of the benefits of the FC8000 model but is designed to help smaller companies grow via cutting technology without the need for a big up-front investment, a feature made even more attractive by
