The super-wide-format machine will join Yorkshire-based Dominion’s recently purchased Inca Onset S40, its Onset S20 and rostre of HP machines.

“We did look at other Durst, Vutek and HP Scitex machines, but only the Durst and Uvistar can really compete on speed and quality,” said associate director Tom Clark.

“We’ve been getting requests for 3 x 2m jobs which we couldn’t do before, but now we’ll be able to.”

The Uvistar Pro 8 has a recommended retail price of £212,000, a top speed of 353sqm/hr and incorporates a complete set of light colours to enable high quality printing at high speeds. It is also available as a 3.5m model.

The Dominion signing has brought the total of five-metre Pro 8s signed for in Europe to five.
