“We are delighted to have Cactus Imaging host our first Open Day for 2023,” Nigel Davies President of FESPA Australia said, “It’s through these events that we can share knowledge, embrace new technologies, and foster innovation that helps drive business growth.”
This is the largest single investment Cactus Imaging has made on a new large format press that delivers speeds in excess of 700 square metres per hour at production quality.
Cactus Imaging general manager of operations Keith Ferrel was impressed with the speed of the hybrid press and made the purchase to deliver a return on investment through significant improvements in productivity.
“We are now able to produce a supersite billboard that is 42 square metres – 12.6m by 3.35m with this new machine at 708 square metres an hour in three and a half minutes, whereas other roll-to-roll machines we have will take 25 minutes – and previously that was fast,” Ferrel said.
During the Open House event Keith Ferrel and Cactus Imaging general manager Nigel Spicer will be joined by Nigel Davies, FESPA Australia and Durst Oceania managing director Matt Ashman, who describes Cactus Imaging as a true leader and pioneer in the digital wide format space.
