Introduction

This report has not been licensed to

any printer manufacturer, distributor,

dealer, sales rep, RIP company, media

or ink company to distribute. So if you

obtained this from any company, other

than FLAAR itself, you have a pirated

copy.

Also, since some reports are

occasionally updated, if you got your

version from somewhere else, it may be

an obsolete edition. FLAAR reports are

being updated all year long, and our

comment on that product may have

been revised positively or negatively as

we learned more about the product

form end users.

PLEASE NOTE

To obtain a legitimate copy, which

you know is the complete report with

nothing erased or changed, and hence

a report with all the original description

of pros and cons, please obtain your

original and full report straight from

www.large-format-printers.org.or other

web sites in our network such as www.

wide-format-printers.NET.

Your only assurance that you have a

complete and authentic evaluation

which describes all aspects of the

product under consideration, benefits

as well as deficiencies, is to obtain

these reports directly from FLAAR, via

the various sites in our network.

Honeycomb sandwich

board material

ISA Las Vegas

There are more than eight different brands of honeycomb sandwich

material. Each manufacturer has a preferred structure. In order to

eventually produce an evaluation we would need to visit the factory

and then an end-user.

Flatbed Cutters

ISA Las Vegas

There are several hundred models of CNC routers and CO2 laser engravers

in China. Of these only a few percent are sturdy enough for

distributors to risk selling them in USA, Europe, Middle East, etc.

The two models here (in the booth of ess) are one of the brands of

flatbed cutters in China which we may consider evaluating (which

requires a factory visit and then an inspecting of the cutters out in

the real world in a print shop).

We know the capable distributor for MultiCam in Bogata, Columbia

and see the MultiCam brand at many expos (but we have not yet

evaluated their recent models).
