Cost efficient sign printing with Avery Dennison’s TrafficJet system
Avery Dennison's team are highlighting the new TrafficJet printing unit
Efficient sign printing is offered by Avery Dennison’s new TrafficJet unit, while its new sheeting offers high visibility. The firm claims the TrafficJet machine offers a fast return on investment, with an economical purchase price and efficient running costs.
The TrafficJet can be used to print signs in any orientation using the firm’s omni-directional sheeting, optimising retro-reflectivity performance according to the company. Avery Dennison says the machine can be used for multi-colour signs as well as complex street sign names for efficient fabrication operations. The TrafficJet colours meet colour and retro-reflectivity and durability requirements of the tough industry specifications.
The equipment optimises operating costs in terms of labour and materials, requiring no cutting, pre-masking or weeding. Using this technology offers a quick order turnaround and the equipment can work unattended with a single operator in charge of several printers.
The printing system is also offered with 10 or 12-year warranty to provide customer confidence, while the signs it produces are covered by the same warranty as products made using screen printing and coloured overlay films. The system is offered with design and RIP software and the package includes installation and operator training.
The two new Class 1/engineering grade beaded retro-reflective films are available in a range of colours to meet all relevant international standards. The T-1000-A is for traffic signage with a seven-year life, while the W-1000-A is a three-year life product. Novel features include different applied night and day appearance. Other features include higher adhesive tack and lower release and a smoother face.
