The company said, those kind of features are “more than enough” for a good solvent printer. “The printer is capable of producing good vinyl, starflex and backlit prints. And because of the speed, the customer can also print regular hoardings,” said Atul Gandhi, managing director at Macart.

Macart serves the low and mid-sized wide-format print segments comprising of around 25,000 PSPs, which includes units with solvent and eco-solvent printers. This year the company has installed 300 machines.

The company which partnered with Fujifilm in building the made in India eco-solvent Vybrant 1800 printers, has plans to introduce its own brand of eco-solvent printer. “If you are looking at an affordable eco-solvent printer, you will need an affordable and good quality printhead. KM is developing one, and we are waiting for the results,” said Gandhi.

Gandhi has also gearing up to get into production mode for the Fujifilm Vybrant. “We have ramped up our infrastructure at the existing plant to produce around 30 machines per month. We have another site in Pune, and more numbers are required, we will building the needed infrastructure there,” concluded Gandhi.
