ColorDynamics Increases Production with Jeti Tauro
Allen, Texas-based ColorDynamics is the largest privately held commercial printer in the Southwest, offering sheet-fed and web printing, as well as digital and wide-format options with state-of-the-art pre-press, finishing, and shipping services. During the last 33 years, the company has built a reputation for providing quality printing and innovative graphic communication services that exceed clients’ expectations.
ColorDynamics recognized it was at a crossroads. Increasing workloads required operating two shifts, yet seasonal upticks impacted workflow. To better support its wide-format growth trajectory, ColorDynamics needed to invest in an additional printer to handle more direct-to-store retail business.
“We want to run all our jobs to completion, not have some projects stack up while we produce a massive retail order on one device,” says John Ehrenberger, EVP, ColorDynamics. “We have such confidence in the Agfa (Booth 8242) portfolio, so we chose the fully automated Jeti Tauro H3300 LED to increase our production efficiency. We can produce 80 boards per hour in production mode that are vibrant, which is increasing our output capacity by 2.5 times.”
The Jeti Tauro H3300 LED produces prints up to 130" wide, at speeds up to 4,876 sqft/hr at up to 635x1,200 dpi resolution.
ColorDynamics decided on a fully automated Jeti Tauro H3300 featuring a feeding and unloading system that can process four boards automatically. While one set of boards are printing, the next is preparing for print. Asanti’s built-in color management offers consistent color saturation and reproduction.
ColorDynamics chose the six-color plus white configuration for outputting on backlit media such as window clings, and creating an opaque white background or for using white as a spot color on boards.
“Our business is evolving, and today’s customers need their projects shipped to multiple locations nationwide, and they wanted it yesterday,” explains Ehrenberger. “We’re doing more and more direct-to-store. We can customize jobs for each location, RIP files quickly, and output with extreme productivity. We are delivering client campaigns with unprecedented speed, and we’re proud to say that no other printer in the region can match our capabilities.”
With the new Jeti Tauro H3300 LED, ColorDynamics will meet its goal of delivering high-quality prints faster, direct-to-store, while continuing to exceeding client expectations.
