Cambridge, 14th November 2017. Xaar, the world leader in industrial inkjet technology, is pleased to announce that its company Engineered Printing Solutions (EPS) has today, at InPrint 2017, signed COMEC Italia as European distributor for its full range of digital print products.
The new agreement will take full advantage of the existing relationship between EPS and COMEC, and builds on COMEC’s strong position in product printing in Europe to drive the digital conversion of product print and decoration.
The agreement, which was signed by Edgardo Baggini, MD of COMEC, and Julian Joffe, President of EPS, includes the new cylindrical object printer from EPS which had its European launch at InPrint 2017. This is a multi-color, UV-LED, high-resolution system offering state-of-the-art digital printing technology including Xaar 1003 printheads.
This new printer from EPS is designed specifically for decorating cylindrical objects in vertical mode – including those that are flat walled or tapered – and is therefore the ideal printer for companies producing promotional products or cosmetics, craft brewers, wineries and also other industries looking to offer their customers a short run option at high production rates of an average of 800 parts per hour (pph).
COMEC, based in Cavaria, north-west of Milan, employs 64 people and has over 4000 sq m of manufacturing facilities, with a separate area for its digital printer business. The announcement builds on a 30-year relationship between both businesses, as EPS has been a distributor of COMEC pad print machinery in the US since 1985.
“We are delighted to announce that COMEC has become our distributor across Europe,” says Julian Joffe. “As a major player in the print machinery sector, they will be able to pass on the many advantages available through EPS product printing expertise, and provide a great return on investment for manufacturers in search of a direct-to-product printing system.”
