Agfa Middle East recently installed three printers for two of its Congo-based customers - XL Media Group and Congo Graphics.

For XL Media, Jeti Titan HS UV hybrid printer marks their 10th installation with Agfa Middle East. “Jeti Titan HS is one of the highest selling printers in our assortment in the last five years. This Canadian origin model is a 2mx3m true flatbed design for jobs up to 160m2/hr. It provides an unparalleled print quality with its highly accurate drop placement, seven pico liter spot size and six-colour height fidelity printing at 720x1200 dpi for photorealistic image quality,” said Som John, general manager, Agfa.

Congo Graphics bought two mid-profile printers - Jeti Ceres 3324 UV LED and Acorta 3120 HS. “The motive behind choosing Agfa products was to increase the production volume and speed and to best meet the needs of our customers. Jeti Ceres provides impeccable quality with low ink consumption,” said Alain, production manager, Congo Graphics.

John explained: “Jeti Ceres is a roll-to-roll, 3.2m six-colour  +white and/or primer UV LED printer.  It came out of our Canada factory three years ago and now has a strong install base all around the globe. Acorta 3120 HS, an automatic cutting plotter with auto-recognition, was launched in Dubai during SGI 2015.  This Italian origin cutting table has everything it takes to meet the requirements of high standards of the cardboard, digital printing and signage industries.”   

“The African market provides huge business opportunities and Agfa has been trying to establish  as many local partnerships as possible hoping for better results and lower risks. Apart from the Jeti models, our Anapurna range of printers are also quite popular in the region. Till 2018, we installed around 40 Anapurna printers in Africa and are expecting to have some five to seven units this year,” concluded John.
