29Vutek’s Offerings – General Weak Points Most systems support average quality in high production:No Backlit or D/S printing dedicated S/W & H/W.No Queue – low overall productivity.No “Load file while Printing”.No “Skip White” option.Big amount of ink consumption and ink waste, due to spectra heads.Average drying capabilities.Low media flexibility – paper, mesh.Weak infrastructure and global support.
30Nur’s Offerings Nur Fresco 3200 HiQ 8C: In 2x4 colors they reach 102 sqm/hr – soluble quality only on Mesh. In other material it shows banding.The Fresco has no multi-roll or “Load File While Printing” ability – so even if Nur claims speed of 102 sqm/hr – in real working environment the XL1200 tops that.The Fresco has no dedicated backlit or double-side option – you need a very professional operator to create a good D/S registration (Like on GJ).The Fresco has no skip white option.The Fresco has a vacuum table, which makes it difficult to print mesh and carpet materials on it (needs special procedure).We can always offer the XL1200 5m – it is more attractive than the 3m Fresco.
31Nur’s Offerings (Cont.) (Salsa) Ultima HiQ C:First presented in ISA 2003.A new system based on combined technologies (BB, Salsa, Fresco).No dedicated Backlit or Double-sided printing capabilities.The Ultima has a vacuum table, which makes it difficult to print mesh and carpet materials on it (needs special procedure).General point:Nur and Vutek are selling a system and adding required elements in separate parts of the deal. This presents a lower system price - potential customers should be aware of that.
32Gandi Innovations Jeti 3300 Strong points:Easy to use, with simple user software-interface.Very high quality in 12-pass mode - rivals the VUTEk 2360 SC.Low investment cost ~$175K.
33Gandi Innovations Jeti 3300 (Cont.) Weak points:Unproven reliability – $175K is still a high risk to take!Very bad media handling - slipping and uneven media tension, week structure.In order to get good quality (12 pass), the system runs at 18sqm/hr.In 6 and 9-pass, there is a very noticeable and wide banding.Problems with ink viscosity - especially very weak magenta and cyan.Backlit images are terrible and unacceptable.Very bad quality on many different and popular media types.Gandi has a doubtful reputation – he sold the “Powerjet” to Nur, than the “Salsa” operation as well, and now we know he looks for someone to buy the Gandi line.Confidential
