The Oldham Group, a Springfield, IL, distributor of prepress, pressroom, bindery, and large-format supplies and solutions, has signed an agreement with Korea-based InkTec Corp. to market, install and support the Jetrix line of UV printers in the United States. The agreement calls for The Oldham Group to begin marketing both the Jetrix 2513 4x8-ft. UV flatbed printer and the larger Jetrix 3015 5x10-ft. UV flatbed printer immediately.

With five offices spread from Illinois to Texas, The Oldham Group currently serves a customer base of over 1,200 commercial printers, digital service providers, and packaging converters throughout the country.
“With the growth of digital and wide-format printing in the marketplace, our customers are increasingly seeking economical and efficient solutions,” notes Todd Rhinerson, director of wide format equipment, The Oldham Group. “The Jetrix printers are unique in that they are the only UV offerings in their class that can jet a primer, and print directly onto 4-inch thick media. InkTec’s motto is ‘Today's technology is never good enough for us,’ and I think that really applies to the market as they continue to demand better and faster. To this end, we look forward to also marketing future innovations from InkTec and working ever so diligently to continue to meet the needs of our customer base.”

The Jetrix 2513 flatbed printer for indoor or outdoor applications is equipped with a 2440 x 1220 (4x8-ft.) stationary flatbed with a 70-inch width, roll-to-roll. It produces 30 sq. m/hr., 6-color printing (4C plus white and varnish/primer) on most popular substrates. The Jetrix 3015 offers a flatbed surface of 3048 x 1524 (5x10 ft.). Both solutions offer white ink capabilities for increasing the opacity of images in transparent media such as glass, PC, and acrylic.
