FastAnt upgrades HP Scitex FB7600

FastAnt is the first UK printer to upgrade to a HP Scitex FB7600 digital flatbed press and include the Multi-Functional Varnish system.

FastAnt is the first UK printer to upgrade to a HP Scitex FB7600 digital flatbed press and include the Multi-Functional Varnish system.

Part of the Taylor Bloxham Group, FastAnt specialises in point of sale, digital print and fulfilment. The upgrade for the HP Scitex FB7600 includes an image quality update which has increased the productivity of FastAnt’s most popular printing mode by nearly 30%. This has introduced the ability to reproduce "crystal clear" four point text which is ideal for technical specifications and barcodes.

The additional benefit of the software upgrade is the Multi-Functional Varnish system, allowing FastAnt to introduce a number of unique finishes and effects. A spot varnish can be applied to add unique visual effects or decoration to images. It is cured to produce either a matt, satin or gloss effect on the printed imagery.

The varnish is integrated into the printing process and the 100% accurate registration means there is no requirement for bleed, giving superior results to offline varnish.

Up to five layers of the varnish can be applied to create an embossed effect. This is achieved directly from the press resulting in increased accuracy and efficiency by reducing the amount of handling required post-press.
