Sign and display printer Composite Images is the first printer in NSW to order the new Massivit 1800 3D printer after placing an order on the spot at drupa.
The Massivit 1800 is designed to print directly onto 3D objects, and is distributed in Australia by freshly appointed Photo Electronics Services (PES).
Composite chief executive Bruce Scott says he was eyeing models that could complement his company’s POP and display services.
“There is nothing else like it. We were looking for something to differentiate us from regular wide format roll and flatbed production, and the Massivit 1800 fitted that bill perfectly – so I went shopping,” says Scott.
“It can print virtually any concept in 3D, which can then be finished by wrapping, painting, airbrushing or burnishing. If a 3D production run is longer, then the thermoforming mould can be produced on the Massivit at a fraction of the cost and in less time than current method.”
Delivery and installation is slated to be completed at the Atarman-based printer, in September, and the machine will be fully supported by distributor PES.
Composite Images serves clients including Qantas, Australia Post, and The Star. The company also houses several roll and flatbed devices with cutting and finishing capabilities.
