LIA confirms rescheduled Cactus Imaging Plant Tour

The Lithographic Institute of Australia (LIA) has rescheduled its exclusive tour of Cactus Imaging’s premises in Sydney to 11 April 2024.

Members and guests of the LIA will experience one of the largest digital printing sites in the Southern Hemisphere with Cactus Imaging catering for the event.

Hosted by the LIA NSW branch, the tour will take place from 5.15 pm to 9 pm.

Based in Silverwater, Cactus Imaging is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s foremost digital printing companies, housing one of the largest grand format production plants in the Asia Pacific region, complete with state-of-the-art equipment.

“We invite the industry to join the LIA for what we believe will be a unique opportunity to have a close look at one of the biggest large-format sites in Australia,” said Mitch Mulligan, LIA NSW committee member and managing director of Böttcher Australia.

Keith Ferrel, co-founder and general manager – operations, Cactus Imaging, said he is thrilled to host the LIA NSW plant tour.

“We are proud of what we have achieved over the years, and we continue to invest in the world’s best large-format equipment. You will see many world firsts in print and finishing equipment,” said Ferrel.

“Printers ranging from speeds of 400 sq metres per hour to over 700 sq metres per hour at very high quality, and finishing equipment designed to keep up with the print speeds,

will be on show at our state-of-the-art facility”.

In June 2023, Cactus Imaging became the first in the southern hemisphere to install the Durst 10-channel P5 350 HS D4 hybrid press, as well as the first in the local market to install the FUJIFILM Acuity R2 LED five-metre roll-to-roll machine in November 2023.

LIA represents Australia on the technical committee covering graphic technology of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), with members involved in design, advertising, multimedia, pre-press, and all forms of printing and visual communication.
