Copatra Graphics, headquarted in Jeddah (KSA) with branches in Riyadh and Dammam and active across the GCC region as well as neighboring countries, has been in the graphic communications business for over four decades and now has completed its first decade of successful partnership with SGI Dubai.
The companies celebrated those 10 years at the first day of SGI.
Copatra distributes the range of Eco-, mild- and solvent wide format printers and plotters as well as textile printers from DGI.
And there was more reason to celebrate for Copatra: The roll-fed DGI VE320D that Copatra brought to the show was purchased by Derer trading company from Jeddah (KSA) where the four color printer will be added to the existing fleet of printers. It accommodates media up to 3.2 m width and features four printheads for four-color printing (CMYK) with a resolution of up to 720x720dpi. Alternatively the printer enables printing on two smaller rolls or one 3.2m wide substrate roll. The machine is driven by the Wasatch RIP.
The Korean printer manufacturer DGI will celebrate 30 years since its inauguration in May this year.
In addition, the Copalaser engaving device, a new addition to the Copatra product line, that is exhibited by the company for the first time at SGI, also went to a Saudi Arabian company from Maccah that will use it for engraving for advertising.
Having been busy on the first day, Copatra also could record another sale: The Anapurna M2500 on show, a 2.5 m wide inkjet printer featuring speeds of up to 60sqm/h, was purchased by Noor al Ebdaa from Riyadh (KSA). The seven-color printer (CMYKLcLm+W) prints with UV curable inks and features KonicaMinolta printheads.
