Building a digital imaging future through Large Format Digital technology
Precise-registration work grows while increasing capacity by 30%.
TI Group and SCL Imaging’s ability to deliver on a 30-year promise of innovation and cost-effectiveness in large format digital imaging and retail solutions has gained considerable strength with the Toronto-based company’s recent acquisitions of a Durst Rho 1000 Continuous Inkjet Production System, a Durst Rho P10 250 UV Inkjet Digital Flatbed Printer and a Durst Rho P10 320R UV Inkjet Digital Roll Printer. This promise, coupled with a strategy to remain at the forefront of the technology curve, forms the basis of the decision to purchase 2 new Durst Large Format Digital Printers.
“The Durst Rho P10 250 and the P10 320R increases our company’s total to five Durst print platforms,” says Tej Randhawa, VP and General Manager of Large Format Digital at TI Group. Randhawa explains,“Our Company has seen increased pressure from the market for short turnaround times on projects – especially for retail applications. Corrugate, styrene and adhesive vinyls are the most common medias the company puts into production on all of its digital platforms, for such projects as 3D, prototypes, windows and POP displays. The printer’s tight tolerances and precision double-sided registration are responsible for the company’s increase in two-sided print applications – representing significant growth potential as the market converts from screen to digital. It’s brought us a quantity reach that we couldn’t touch before, and we have been able to meet ridiculously tight timelines on some very challenging jobs, which has really pleased our clients.”
Peter Spring, Group VP at TI Group adds, “We have made an active effort to shape ourselves as a company that wants to be different, which is one reason we focus on being a technology and innovation leader. We now have unmatched flexibility and capacity alongside the impressive quality associated with the 10 picoliter technology which is well suited for hand-held and eye-level applications.”
In conjunction with TI Group, a privately owned company with roots in the commercial print and finishing business, SCL Imaging has been able to diversify its product and service portfolio to incorporate all facets of the marketing worlds. TI Group / SCL Imaging work with many high-profile Canadian and American companies that have extremely demanding brand and marketing requirements for visual communications.
Domenic Rubino, a partner in TI Group / SCL Imaging, says the about the companies offerings, “Our company utilizes technology platforms to change the way programs are executed and managed, thereby reducing cost through efficiencies – from creative support, concept design, application development, printing and kitting, to a full photography studio.”
“Together, TI Group and SCL Imaging are highly regarded as a single source, many solutions provider,” he elaborates. “Our vision is to be the primary choice of organizations for visual integrated communication solutions. We recognized that a diversified total solution is the key to optimizing the entire project’s life cycle. The total solution will result in cost control, consistent quantity and on time delivery.”
SCL Imaging has recently relocated its operations within the TI Group campus of buildings, located at 115 Thorncliffe Park Drive in Toronto.
