RTI Digital Expands Distribution of Memjet-Powered Vortex 4200 Wide-Format Printer
RTI Digital, part of the Reprographic Technology group of companies and a supplier to the digital production print, wide-format print, and label-print markets, reports that it’s negotiated new reseller agreements with Adkote, CMYUK, Druma, and Printingworld. The new reseller agreements are designed to support RTI Digital’s global brand awareness and grow sales of its Vortex 4200, a wide-format color inkjet printer based on Memjet’s stationary, page-wide inkjet print head, extending distribution of the Vortex 4200 in Western Europe, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia.
RTI provides these details on its new resellers:
- Adkote is a supplier of print-media solutions for the out-of-home advertising, point-of-sale, and indoor retail markets, Adkote will be an exclusive distribution partner for New Zealand and Australia.
- CMYUK, based in Berkshire, U.K., will distribute the Vortex 4200 throughout the United Kingdom as a part of its partnership agreement.
- As a newly signed partner, Druma’s distribution agreement will target the Austrian print market.
- Printingworld is a specialist in wide-format print supplier with experience in both the CAD (computer assisted design) and POS (point-of-sale) market for printers and cutter tables, Printingworld will cover the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg) region.
“I am pleased with the progress we have made and am excited by the high quality of the new partners that have joined with us to establish Vortex printers as a market leader,” commented Erik Norman, president of RTI Digital. “The market adoption of the Memjet technology for GIS, AEC, and POS verticals is increasing and we are on the verge of seeing a marked increase in the placement of printers.”
The 42″ wide full-color Vortex 4200 is based on the Memjet’s unique Waterfall Print Technology, which Memjet says provides revolutionary high print speed and superior quality. Compared to traditional wide-format printers, Memjet says the Vortex 4200 delivers incredibly fast job turnaround times and an attractive total cost of ownership. The Vortex prints at up to 12″ (30 cm) per second (IPS), allowing print shops and in-plant customers to output up to over 9,000 square feet (836 sqm) per hour of full-color graphic arts for signage, POP, GIS, and other wide-format technical printing applications.
The expanded distribution follows up on RTI’s announcement last month that it formed a reseller agreement with Alpha Imaging, under which Alpha Imaging will resell the Vortex 4200 in the northeastern United States.
