Avoid Shipping and Installation Errors with the Matan ID Backprint

How many times does it happened that your sign installer calls you from a customer’s site complaining he has the wrong signs for that location, just because the job was labelled incorrectly?? How much time and money could have been saved if each job was automatically labelled during the printing process and such errors did not occur?

Matan now has a brilliant solution!

PRINT > TRIM & CUT > COLLECT – Revolutionary All-In-One Workflow

January 1, 2014 |  by  |  Super Wide Printing, UV Inkjet  |  No Comments

The immense success of Matan’s Inline Finishing Solution for the Barak Super-Wide Hybrid UV printer did not come to us a surprise. We sensed that this awesome optional feature will catch on, and indeed, since we released our Inline Finishing solution, almost all of the Barak and UViStar shipments included our innovative slitters and cutter.

To perfect our Printing & Cutting workflow even further, Matan’s R&D have come up with a very simple but highly effective Sheet Collector Kit, that takes care of  conveying the printed sheets after trimming and cutting from the printer onto a collector, for easy and neat stacking of the printed output.

The kit is made up of two parts: a conveyor belt that fits on the printer’s front roll and uses its motion to convey each sheet to the collector, which is an adjustable slide where the cut sheets are collected. Both parts are lightweight and easy to install and their tiny footprint make them convenient for storage.

Cutting and Trimming On-The-Fly While Printing

Printing is the most important stage in the production of a sign, but it is seldom the last one. Depending on how the sign will be used, it will have to undergo some type of post processes, such as welding, hemming etc. However, regardless of the required post process, all signs first need to pass through the cutting station, to be trimmed and cut to their final size.


How great could it be if prints could come off of the printer already trimmed and cut? What if you could entirely skip the cutting station for straight edges and save all the associated steps and expenses, including expensive equipment, floor space, staff, special software drivers, and most importantly – time and possibility for fatal human or other mistakes in the worst moment?
