Arrow Digital reveals Polytype will launch new Virtu Quantum at Drupa
17 Feb 2012
Ahmedabad-based digital wide-format specialist, Arrow Digital has announced that Polytype, which the company represents in India, will release ground-breaking new wide-format digital inkjet printing platform, the Virtu Quantum, which claims a blend of quality and speed hitherto unavailable in the marketplace.
Available in widths of 2.5mtrs and 3.5mtrs, the UV-curable machine incorporates 10pl print-heads, specially integrated by Polytype to produce 1,400dpi resolution for lush, rich images suited to a range of industrial and display applications.
Prakash Chopra, regional business manager at Arrow Digital, said, “We have had a decade-old relationship with Polytype; and we are very optimistic about the new distribution tie-up for Virtu UV curable printers in India. We have already installed a couple of Virtu printers.”
Chopra said it is characteristic of the Swiss manufacturer to vigourously test its kit before it is launched in the market. “The Virtu Quantum was tested over a period of months in a fully operational production environment after proof of concept was first demonstrated in 2011.”
Resultingly, the manufacturer claimed that the engine’s speeds reached an impressive 300sqmtrs per hour in production mode and 150-180sqmtrs per hour in photographic mode. The speeds are applicable to both roll-to-roll and flat-bed modes and across a range of both popular and unusual media.
Chopra added, “We are looking forward to the launch and demonstrating the new machine to the Indian print service providers at Drupa.”
