Al Mahir participated in the SGI this year launching new UV flatbed printer from Azon, Croatia based manufacturer. The new UV printer can print on to substrates up to 20 cm height. It can print on a variety of substrates and 3D objects from wood and stainless steel to ceramic tiles, plastics and glass. The sales manager, Ivana Cicak said: “We are developing A2 and A3 size models in this series. It also has laser beam print head protection for cost efficiency. We are focussing on 3 kinds of printers, one is direct to substrate, direct to fabric with water based inks and lastly UV printers. The price starts from $19,000 for UV based on size. We have received more than 20 leads for this in the show. There was good number of visitors from GCC, Middle East and Africa.”
