Johannesburg, South Africa – September 28, 2016: Advanced Machinery, a South Africa based CNC machinery company, today announced a brand new range of the FastCOLOUR Large Format Printer. This is the latest evolution of Advanced Machinery’s fully-integrated digital printing solution. And as the demands of sustainable print practices balloon up the list of priorities for printers every day, the company is demonstrating its commitment to sustainability and ongoing innovation like never before.

The new series of the FastCOLOUR is set to transform the customer’s printing experience with its added upgrades and capabilities. Designed to provide the much-needed extra capacity to simplify the printing business, the new stock arrived at Advanced Machinery’s workshop in Jet Park, Johannesburg, where they are being assembled and demonstrated to the company’s customers. And immediately the company announced this development to a legion of more than 6, 000 of customers in its email database.

‘Our customers’ early response to the original FastCOLOUR was incredible, and this led us to think that they would need something better in a very short space of time – we think we have produced exactly that,’ said Eric Yin, Managing Director at Advanced Machinery.

‘FastCOLOUR is one of the most powerful brands we’ve ever coined, giving our customers that rare ability to be even more creative and fast with a more productive equipment. We’ll be waiting to see what they can do with the FastCOLOUR.’

This, barely a month after a successful stinct at the FESPA Africa 2016, where the company took to the stage, exhibiting the TruCUT CO2 Laser and the three series of vinyl cutters. The new printer is a huge sensation – it is packaged with both the DX5 and DX7 supporting additions, which include a different set of ink damper (this damper has a special filter which is very helpful for high speed printing, and is solvent resistant) and data cables, among others. Customers therefore do not need to purchase anything extra to install the DX5 and DX7 heads, except the heads themselves.

To cement the FastCOLOUR as a lasting innovative solutions portfolio and highly trusted brand, the printer’s resolution is still competitive within the market, going from a 3 – pass at 360×1080 DPI to an 8 – pass at 720×1440 DPI, and a maximum of 7.5 m2/h in high-speed printing  and uninterrupted printing to support high-volume output. The maximum printing width is 1860 mm with 50kg capacity rolled media feeding system.

The FastCOLOUR boasts the Servo Motors used on the printing axis features for fast printing speed and high accuracy movements, which in turn results in high quality printing results. This is ideal for time and space-pressed print operations, printing houses and creative sectors. And as an industry standard, the printer has wheels enabling it to be pushed around and clamps to jam it anywhere.

For people new to large format printing, please check out this page here, where Advanced Machinery constantly makes updates (along with more affordable options).

Advanced Machinery made yet another successful stint at an exhibition this year – this time at the FESPA Africa 2016 Expo which was staged at the Gallagher Convention Centre. One of South Africa’s leading trade shows and the largest dedicated print and signage exhibition, the FESPA Africa is an ideal platform for budding entrepreneurs looking to score insights into the industry, network and view the newest equipment and technologies.

The big expo recorded massive numbers of visitors during the three day tenure. In fact, it’s been recorded as one of the biggest, record-breaking expo gatherings in South Africa so far. The organizers have counted more than 7,000 attendees who came to view more than 500 brands during the three exhibition days. The quality of visitors – trade visitors only – was very high according to statements from exhibitors and organizers

Advanced Machinery’s representatives spent the whole time demonstrating and educating the visitors on using the two sets of machines on display: the TruCUT CO2 Laser Engraving machine and the three series of vinyl cutters – those being the V-Series, the V-Smart and the V-Auto Wireless Vinyl Cutters. They also shared samples and their cult designs and giveaways with heaps of people who visited the company’s stand. Customers came all the way from as far as Zimbabwe, Zambia and the DRC.

Advanced Machinery, commonly known in the Southern African market as AM.CO.ZA, has spent the year 2016 on the road – literally gracing almost every signage, print or design expo with their products, from Cape Town to Limpopo.

At this FESPA expo, much the time engagement was with customers who were looking at starting their own establishments and savvy ones who are looking at growing their businesses. Tray Oliver, a notable signage enthusiast from Pretoria was one of those who spent some time at Advanced Machinery’s booth. His instincts were drawn by the TruCUT CO2 Laser machine, a line of business he indicated he’d be going into soon. This is after he recognised some gaps in the signage market.

Eric Yin, Managing Director at Advanced Machinery observed, ‘For us it was once again a delight to be able to meet so many signage business people. We also met a delegate from India who mentioned that they’ve been following our website. It’s not a really big thing, but it does not happen every day. It’s always important for us to be here, showcasing our new equipment.’

Close to 90% of the entrepreneurs who visited the company’s booth said they were actively planning to start their businesses in the coming six months and 74% said they were likely to go for business machine opportunity available at the expo.

Vinyl Cutters Dominate The Stage: Firstly, Advanced Machinery does not usually assemble all its vinyl cutters under one foreign roof. But this time something was different. In fact, all the difference was made by the huge outcry from customers way back during the build-up to the show. The three different series of vinyl cutters have always been crowd-pullers, and this time it wasn’t any different. Cutting at fast speeds, these products are able to achieve perfect vinyl cutting work at high accuracy movements. The V-Auto especially, which has been densely associated with the distinctive word ‘innovative’, is blended with an Automatic contouring ability, continued to intrigue signage enthusiasts with its 50-1200mm per second cutting/plotting Speed. Its ability to support Wi-Fi connection allows this model to connect several computers simultaneously.

When asked what lay ahead of the machinery curve at Advanced Machinery, Eric could only say that, ‘The future looks bright, and the most beautiful thing is that the South African market is ripe and open for any kind of innovation. We’re constantly innovating.’
