Is 2018 the time to move work off your hybrid printer to a dedicated roll-to-roll printer?
Is your superwide hybrid printer approaching capacity? Is more than half of the total output volume of your hybrid printer roll-to-roll work? Are you looking for new areas to grow? A dedicated production-level, roll-to-roll printer may be in order.
In fact, if over 50-60% of the total output volume of your hybrid printer is roll-to-roll work, a dedicated roll-to-roll printer is recommended. It will give you faster time to market and more capacity to confidently bid on new jobs – for both roll-to-roll and rigid applications since you’ll free up time on your hybrid. And with the right printer model, you may be able to add new capabilities to produce higher-margin applications.
