Screenbolaget becomes first European customer to invest in Vanguard VK300D-HS Series LED UV flatbed printer
Changing market requirements and a need for fast job turnarounds with high-volume digital production were crucial in Screenbolaget AB’s decision to invest in the VK300D-HS Series high-production LED UV flatbed printer from Vanguard Europe GmbH. One of Sweden’s major suppliers of profile advertising and action marketing products, Screenbolaget has become the first European customer to invest in the new VK300D-HS Series LED UV flatbed printer with 10 printheads.
Screenbolaget, a €12 million-turnover company, employs 42 staff in Stockholm. “Until this summer around 90 percent of our work was roll-to-roll and 10 percent was flatbed,” said Patrick Nermark, CEO of Screenbolaget. He added, “But flatbed volumes quadrupled going into the Swedish elections in September, and these are still more than at least double since then.” VK300D Series is a rigid, stable machine that incorporates a high-speed electromagnetic drive system propelling the carriage at speeds of up to 1.8m/sec for 60 boards an hour.
Formed in late 2021, Vanguard Europe is the European subsidiary of Vanguard Digital Printing Systems Corporation, which has its global headquarters in Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA. The company has its European base in Brixen, Italy, near its parent company Durst Group.
