Clegg installs Jeti Mira to stay ahead

Clegg Media is staying ahead of the game with its recent purchase of the latest offering from Agfa in flatbed UV printers, the Jeti Mira MG2732. Owner Colin Clegg says it has used Agfa printers in the past and is pleased with the results, so upgrading to the Jeti Mira MG2732 was a natural choice. He expects the flatbed UV Jeti will help produce the company’s speciality work, lenticular printing – which uses the same technology used in 3D displays to produce print images which show depth and appear to move when viewed from different angles. The company provides large format print and signage work for its clients all around Australia with its staff of 15. Owner Colin Clegg has watched his Brisbane-based outfit grow from humble beginnings using only one small printer to the Australia-wide company it has become two decades later. Clegg attributes his company’s growth to its position at the forefront of print technology and says he purchased the Jeti Mira because, “We thought it was the best printer available for what we require at this time.

“We try to be the leaders when it comes to equipment, we always buy new equipment every one or two years,” he says. “Because equipment gets superceded quickly and new gear comes along you have got to keep up.” Clegg has recently stepped down from running the company’s day-to-day business which is now handled by his son and general manager Barry Clegg, who says the Jeti Mira will be put to good use with business currently booming. He says, “Business has been consistent, we’ve had a couple of decent sized contracts come through in the past few months and we’ve been pretty busy right through the holiday period.” Mike Culver, Inkjet sales manager Oceania at Agfa says, “This is another fantastic story for both of our businesses. Clegg has again shown that it is market leader by installing Queensland’s first Agfa Jeti Mira. “The brand new Jeti Mira MG2732 has one of the biggest bed sizes on the market. At 3200mm x 2700mm the platform is able to split into two print zones offering the client a tandem print facility. Coupled with speeds up to 206sqm per hour these joint features improve productivity. A dockable 2050mm roll unit is available and has the option of a mesh kit. “Using the latest Ricoh Gen 5 print head the six-colour + white platform fires a 7 picolitre dot, which achieves photographic quality. Mira is able to print onto substrates like foamex, Ally composite, corrugated board, acrylic and roll materials like SAV, banner, mesh and paper stocks. Also with the launch of our new G4 Ink, printing onto problematic substrates, like coreflute, are not a challenge. “Both Colin and Barry are astute business men and are respected in the print market. So for Agfa to continue to gain their trust through product and service is a great achievement for our company.”
