A core part of Wave’s business is printing glass panels and so they were looking for a more efficient way to digitally print these.
The Next Steps
Initial demonstrations at InkTec’s Innovations Centre showcased the capability and versatility of the JETRIX printer range, what they could do and how they work. With printing on glass panels obviously a high priority, this took the majority of the presentation.
The first JETRIX KX3 printer, delivered in January 2013 rapidly became in demand. Orders from Wave’s clients increased, as they were increasingly impressed by the quality and print sharpness produced by this initial printer.
In April 2013, Wave took delivery of a second KX3 to cope with the increased demand. This was soon followed by a larger KX5 machine to meet the demand for printing larger sized substrates of up to 2.5 x 1.3m.
As all three printers utilise exactly the same print head technology, Wave were able to ensure the same result, regardless of which machine used. Wave have now taken delivery of their fourth JETRIX – a KX5 in March 2014.
