Nieman Printing looks to a vivid future with Jeti Mira LED from Agfa
Friday 23. April 2021 - Nieman Printing is a G7 Master WBE Printer with a G7 expert on staff, known for providing consistent, superior quality print and innovative finishing, packaging, display graphics, mailing, and fulfillment services to its clients.
With an esteemed reputation across the country, Nieman Printing is an award-winning, commercial, web, high-volume digital and grand format printer based in Dallas, TX. A WBE (Women Business Enterprise) certified business established in 1978, the company provides clients with a visual experience that sets them apart from the competition.
The company has nine large offset presses and three large-format UV devices with accompanying small-format digital equipment running 24/7 by skilled craftspeople. When the team heard about a new, powerful, wide-format LED flatbed printer from Agfa, they wanted to learn more.
Thin Ink technology saves Nieman 60%
“We were fairly close to capacity on our last hybrid and planning our next steps,” said Matt Nieman, Chief Operating Offi cer at Nieman Printing. “The speed and quality of the Jeti Mira is impressive, and the ink savings makes us more competitive. We calculated a 60% savings in ink costs attributed to the Jeti Mira’s ‘thin ink layer’ technology. That’s what sold us.”
The Jeti Mira LED offers a high pigment load of ink and lowers consumption while producing graphics with the feel of an offset print. This thin ink pigment dispersion technology delivers intensely vibrant graphics with the lowest cost of print production in the industry.
Nieman Printing chose the Jeti Mira MG2732 HS LED with six colors (CMYKLcLm) plus white with optional varnish and a roll-to-roll extension. The dockable roll-to-roll attaches to the front of the unit, thus reducing media waste.
With speeds up to 2,669 ft²/hr (248 m²/hr), the versatile Jeti Mira handles rigid media up to 2.69 m-wide, flexible media up to 2.05 m-wide and offers advanced LED curing for heat sensitive substrates. A ‘Print & Prepare’ function allows non-stop printing for additional productivity.
6-7 hour jobs now 45 minutes
“We are increasing customer volume with the Jeti Mira and clients are noticing the improved caliber of our work,” explains Matt Nieman. “Jobs that would take six or seven hours are accomplished in 45 minutes, which means our clients have more time to manage their files and make changes.”
Nieman Printing can produce stunning, detailed images and razor-sharp texts as small as 4-point type. The varnish option on the Jeti Mira transforms graphics into captivating visuals that impress onlookers.
“We layered varnish on a linen material for one of our clients. They were ecstatic and increased their order,” notes Matt Nieman.
The Jeti Mira LED is opening new doors and helping Nieman Printing be at the top of their game. The organization is a front runner in the latest technology, has a very knowledgeable and motivated staff and offers clients consistent, outstanding results.
When asked about how he keeps the company moving forward, Matt Nieman advises that taking care of employees will always allow a business to take care of its customers. “And never stop planning for the future,” he adds.
That kind of foresight is what keeps Nieman Printing distinctive in their customers’ eyes.
