After company Radin installed the Gunsjet GH-UVF 1016 UV LED printer in the Camaloon printing house, we arranged a visit to this company with a business model that we do not see very often in Adria / Balkan region.
Namely, Camaloon is a Spanish company located in the very center of Barcelona. They specialize in the rapid production of personalized promotional products that they deliver throughout Europe. Currently, as Ms. Ivana Hrkec, director of Camaloon Croatia d.o.o., told us, on average, they perform about 400 work orders a day.
Their production facility is a real treasure of digital printing machines. Everything is full with the latest digital technologies, from several UV printers, CO2 and fiber lasers, ink jet printers with white colour, to a large format sublimation printer. There are also T-shirt printers, thermal presses, a laminator and a large digital cutter.
We are interested why did you bring production in Croatia and why did you decide to install Gunsjet?
“The current location of the production plant in the center of Barcelona did not have much economic justification. The owners decided for Croatia due to the good logistical connection”, said Ms. Hrkec.
Regarding the installation of Gunsjet GH-UVF 1016 UV LED, they opted for Gunsjet, she says, because its production characteristics have proven to be very competitive compared to other technologies they have tested. The decision, therefore, was very easy and logical. One of the reasons is the photographic quality of the print and the very large work area of 160x100cm. It was intended for the production of magnets, diaries and other items.
“Existing UV printers have too small work area and are not able to keep up with the large production capacity. Gunsjet is also several times faster than the printers we currently use. Gunsjet is a real small industrial printer. The large dimensions of the work area allow us to produce excellent medium-sized products. The speed rises significantly above the level of desktop UV printers, while the maintenance and user interface is very simple, ” said Ms. Hrkec.
