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!

10 Ways to Save Money with the Barak Super-Wide Hybrid UV Printer

July 17, 2014 |  by  |  Super Wide Printing, UV Inkjet  |  No Comments

Did you know that the Barak Printer can save quite a lot of $$$$ compared to other printers?

Here’s how:

1. Save as much as $20,000 a year on media – The Barak’s media path ensures that no more than 40cm (15.7”) of the roll is wasted at each media loading.  In comparison, other printers waste about 150-200 cm each time a roll is loaded. This is 5 times less wasted media compared to other printers!

2. Save up to $100,000 on expensive cutting equipment and economize floor space with the unique Barak Inline Finishing System, that does all the trimming and sheeting on the fly while printing, in a single efficient workflow.

3. Use the Vacuum Plate for printing on thin sheets and rigid boards. The revolutionary Vacuum Plate turns the Barak into a true flatbed printer without compromises.

4. Save money on dedicated printers for various media. The Barak prints literally on everything, including flexible media such as PVC banner, PE, polyethylene, SAV self-adhesive vinyl, Paper, Mesh, Flag, Textile, Blue back paper, Carpet, Synthetic paper, Tyvek, Yupo, Wallpaper, One-way vision, canvas, and many other types of coated and uncoated media, at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated printer.
5. Save ink – The Barak printers have the lowest ink consumption compared to other super-wide format UV printers, due to its thin layer thickness and efficient drop screening. The approximate average ink consumption is 180 m2 per 1 liter (1940 ft2/liter)!
May I ask you: what is the ink consumption on your printer?
6.  Analyze your shop’s performance on all variables using the Barak Value-Pro Analytics Software. You can easily check your annual media or ink consumption, find out how many hours your printers are active, how long it takes for each of your operators to complete jobs, and much more. This invaluable business data will allow you to identify where and how to further improve efficiencies and increase savings.
7. Save even more media and minimize media roll length calculation errors with the Barak’s Media Saving Wizard, that prints a label stating the amount of media left on each roll. (read more)  
8. Save manpower – free your staff for other tasks, with the Barak single-person loading system.
9. Save on training and on apprenticeship and shorten operators’ learning curves with the Barak’s ease of use and its brilliant automated systems, such as Automatic Backlit and Automatic Blockout printing, be means of which even less experienced operators can produce superb results at producing challenging double-sided applications.
10. Lower environmental costs and minimize waste disposal – using UV ink, there is no need for ventilation and filtrations and you can also save by by using popular low-cost recyclable media supported by the Barak, such as PE.

The Only Hybrid Printer With No Compromises!

February 27, 2014 |  by  |  Super Wide Printing, UV Inkjet  |  No Comments

In the beginning (it wasn’t that far back. Just 10 years ago), there were only two kinds of Super-wide printers: Roll-to-Roll (R2R) or Flatbed. Pure R2R printers could only print on flexible roll media while true flatbeds were dedicated to printing on rigid boards. Print providers had to choose either the one or the other.

Then came the hybrid printers. Those printers allowed print shops to diversify the products they offered, without having to invest too heavily in new machinery. However, like all cross-breeds, the hybrid printers represented certain compromises. None of them were quite as good at both tasks.

Matan now introduces the new revolutionary Vacuum Plate System that turns the Barak into a true flatbed. Yes, a true flatbed printer, with zero compromises. Read More
