The Delta Group is first customer for Agfa’s SpeedSet Orca

After the introduction of the Agfa SpeedSet Orca in December last year at Agfa’s Cambridge facility, The Delta Group is first to sign for the new digital press for folding cartons.

The Delta Group was impressed with the speed and quality of the SpeedSet Orca single-pass inkjet press and sees it as an ideal complement to their current equipment. The fact that SpeedSet Orca is a water-based ink press that has sustainability in mind made the decision to go ahead even easier.

“We are excited that The Delta Group has decided to opt-in as our first customer. The Delta Group will push and test the SpeedSet Orca to its maximum and will be enjoying high-quality output for their business every day,” says Vincent Wille, President, Digital Print & Chemicals division, Agfa. “We are proud that companies like Delta see the huge benefit of using water-based inkjet technology whilst achieving the highest print quality.”

“We excited to get our hands on the first SpeedSet Orca in the world in our plant. We will be pushing it to the limit and expect great things from the press,” says Martin Shipp, COO, The Delta Group.

The SpeedSet Orca was developed for the folding carton market, the single-pass inkjet press can print up to 11.000 B1 boards per hour offering amazing quality and a large colour-gamut with water-based inks. Due to the flexibility of inkjet printing, Agfa claims the press can offer runs competitive to offset in mainstream printing volumes and provide full agility for a larger number of job changes. This allows companies to accept smaller jobs and deliver them faster than ever before.

“Working with Martin on this journey has been a fantastic experience and I am delighted we are partnering in the next exciting chapter of the SpeedSet story,” says Matt Brooks, Head of Packaging, Agfa Digital Printing Solutions.
