    I have been looking at purchasing a flatbed printer, size 250cm x 130cm bed from a company in Germany.
    I am just wondering if anyone on here is using any of their machines, and if so what is your experience of them?

    The below is from a translation on their site. I’ve mailed them about a slightly larger version 250×130 which they have advertised on machine seeker.

    From their site:

    This UV printer replaces the common laser printer – also colored prints on glass, wood, textiles, plastic, metal and many other materials
    New model: PS1812
    C MYK LC LM + White + lacquer or with double CMYK + WWWW (white) + VVVV (lacquer )
    Print head: Epson TX800
    2690 dpi max.Including
    software for printer and
    image processing Dimensions: approx. 260cm (L) x 160cm (W)
    Weight: 750kg
    printing area 1800×1200 and a printing height of 150mm

    From an initial reply the machine prints about 15sqm per hour.

    I had assumed from the way they were advertised they were manufacturing themselves.

      Hi mate

      Can’t comment on how good or bad that printer is but qualify their exact feet on the street engineering support ability at your location (forget unlimited phone support), service level lead time etc. Make that a massive part of your consideration on whether you go for it. That’s a very small price to pay for an 8*4 UV flatbed printer but large enough to be very painful when its not performing well, doing something unexpected, or the power light just doesn’t come on. Every flatbed UV I’ve used, all big brands, need everything to be ‘just so’ to give constant quality output – they are much more demanding and temperamental than roll to roll printers to maintain and keep going.

      Let us know if you get one and how it performs.


      Cheers

      Dave
