GCC StellarJet K100UV with KonicaMinolta printheads Print E-mail

The trend today is to higher quality printers. Low-end and entry-level printers simply leave too much to be desired. So GCC is now offering a new printer at a higher level, the StellarJet K100UV.

I have inspected and reviewed the previous model, GCC StellarJet 250uv both in the GCC factory in Taiwan as well as in a printshop. The quality was admirable. The new printer has even better printheads.

Hopefully in the future I will be able to test the GCC K100UV in a demo room or at the printshop of an end-user. In the meantime I saw it first at DRUPA 2008 in Germany and look forward to seeing it again, probably at SGIA in Atlanta.

White ink and spot varnish

Many printshop owners ask for white ink. Fewer ask for spot varnish, in part because it's a tough liquid to handle. But with white ink you can not only print on dark materials, you can improve the image quality of any backlit materials on translucent materials. So even if you don't have need or use of white ink today, once you get a UV-curable printer, your clients may start asking for white ink.

The competing sign shop across town probably already offers white ink, or if not today, they will tomorrow.

For Décor and Interior Decoration

Most printshops buy a printer to produce signs, banners, posters, and billboards, but the quality achieveable by today's new generation of printheads (such as the KonicaMinolta heads used by GCC), you can also print on wood, stone, ceramics, ceiling tiles, etc. In fact GCC offers a special liquid to prime tiles and can explain the process to achive the beautiful quality of wall tiles that were not possible with earlier printing technologies.

This is not dye sub (which fades in a few months), this is pigmented UV-cured ink.
