Our investment in cutting edge machinery is our major point of difference.”

At Retail Communications we have invested in state of the art printing technology. The IncaS40i and S20 printers can digitally print direct to almost any substrate up to 50mm thick, and is Australia’s largest and fastest example of this technology. Find out more about our technology below.

We can print a 3.2m x 1.6m panel in just under 30 seconds.

Complementing our print side is “Kongsberg” digital cutting technology. This state of the art router can work at equal speeds with the printers, and can profile cut just about any material within the same time frame!

What does that mean for you?

It means we have the ability to produce offset quality prints and cut them to shape in a greatly reduced period of time, much faster than conventional large format digital applications allow.

ONSET S40i

ONSET S40iNew Features – The Inca Onset S40i incorporates a number of new, intelligent design features that have been developed to
increase overall productivity, print quality and reliability. The Onset S40i provides all the advantages of the Onset S40 but also offers
the additional benefits of faster set up times and increased machine uptime. These factors all help to make the operator’s job simpler
and protect your investment.
Faster Setup Times – The new 15-zone vacuum table reduces bed masking requirements, which shortens setup times and increases
overall output.
Productivity – Innovative UV sensors continually monitor the machine condition and automatically inform the operator when
cleaning is required. The frequency of cleaning depends on the type and volume of work so unnecessary maintenance is avoided
and productivity is increased.
Reliabilty – Sophisticated mechanical substrate height detectors deliver improved accuracy and reliability to help protect both the
substrate and the printheads.
Image Quality – The 6-colour ink set improves colour tones and graduations as well as reducing the appearance of graininess.
Along with Inca’s advanced software control, the Onset S40i delivers excellent text quality even at small font sizes.
Ease of Use – The addition of a ‘machine setup files’ function allows a huge number of variables to be captured and reloaded again
and again, enabling machine operators to change quickly between substrates.
