Inspire Image in Bangkok adopts
first Inca Onset R40i in Thailand

After winning the biggest ever contract with Tesco, Bangkok-based signage firm Inspire Image was in need to add a printer capable to print the requirements of the global supermarket major. FUJIFILM Inca Onset R40i was the right choice, first in Thailand, to deliver a one-stop-shop service and adhere to tight deadlines without having to outsource any of its work.

On decision of choosing Inca Onset R40i, Pichet Lakdee, MD, Inspire Image Co Ltd, explains, “With the 14 devices we already had, we were unable to meet the three to five days turnaround times for high-quality outputs expected by major clients, such as Tesco. We reviewed a number of top high-end wide-format inkjet devices on the market. This included a visit to FUJIFILM’s Open House in Kuala Lumpur, where we tested the Inca Onset platform.”

After the installation of Inca Onset R40i, Inspire Image Co Ltd quickly started receiving feedback they were hoping for. “From day one, our customers – all brands with high quality standards – commented on the excellent quality prints we delivered within tight deadlines. For being able to do this, at a competitive price, we thank FUJIFILM for the Inca Onset R40i.” Inspire Image, based in Bangkok, was established in 2007 to deliver graphic design, signage, fleet graphics and wall decoration to a range of clients across Thailand and South-East Asia.

Producing 10,000 sq m of prints per month, Inca Onset R40i boasts robustness and reliability required for a heavy duty production environment. “The printer is proved to be the best option for us, delivering print resolutions of up to 1200 dpi at productivity mode; running at 400 sq m/hr,” mentions Pichet, adding that the printer is very reliable as they require little servicing from the local FUJIFILM team.

Inca Onset R40i uses FUJIFILM Dimatix Spectra printheads, which deliver a 14 picolitre drop size, and offers genuine productivity of 400 sq m/hour. Inca Onset R40i can churn up to 80 full-bed sheets per hour on media up to 3.14x1.6 m in size and 50 mm thick. A choice of uni or bi-directional and super high-quality print modes can be selected depending on the specific job requirements.

Availability of the full-width array ‘LT’ version of Inca Onset R40i, which was announced early part of the year, allows PSPs who are in pursuit of a mid-range digital flatbed opportunity to invest in a future-proof, cost effective high-end alternative. Looking forward to gaining a long and fruitful partnership with FUJIFILM, Pichet is confident to say, “We’ve made the right investment and look forward to seeing how the Onset R40i enables us to further grow our business over the coming years.”
