Zeejprint became the first printing press in KSA to invest in Duplo DuSense DDC-810 Spot UV coater for its factory in Sulay, Riyadh. The installation was completed successfully by Giffin Graphics in April.
Talking about the investment, Ahmed Siddiqui, COO of Zeejprint, said, “We have been looking for a machine that fits all our requirements and this Duplo Dusense fitted exactly. The machine allows us to do many value added services for our customers. Particularly, the machine fits for the customers who are looking for luxurious and eye-catching products in short run jobs. Through this investment, we were even able to do a single job with an excellent output for the best price, whereas it was not possible earlier.
He further added, “Duplo Dusense has many interesting features including accurate registration and different levels of thickness in one pass. It goes up to 80 micron thickness which provides an amazing embossed shiny look. It can take sheets up to long B3 format (364x740mm) and register the spot coating to pre-printed images. There is  an automatic setup and adjustment for every sheet, extending from XY image shift to stretch, skew and twist that are common after laminating. All these tasks can be performed in real-time.”
Talking about the company, he added, “Zeej is one of the biggest chain of digital printing in KSA with 17 production units plus a centralized offset press which is equipped with many post press machines. Our web2print portal offers design and print online with short period of time.”
Talking about the features, Alexandre Najem, manager machinery division from Giffin Graphics said, “Giffin Graphics in collaboration with Duplo International are promoting The DDC-810 ‘Sensory Coater’ with an option of 5 years contract and is very attractive for the clients, as they don’t have to worry about the maintenance for 5 years. We already have three installations and the feedback is very positive from all the clients. They are very happy with faster turnaround especially with their short run jobs.”
