and Windows Graphics
February 16, 2006, Rosh Haayin, Israel - Matan Digital Printers is expanding its Thermal Transfer product line
with a fourth printer: Matan Spot36. This new digital printer was designed to meet the specialized requirements
of wayfinding and traffic signage printers, window graphics and other industrial applications that require short-run,
high-durability two-color printing.
The new Matan Spot36 is in fact a wider format implementation of the best features and qualities of the Matan
Spring12 printer. It is equipped with innovative durable Kyocera print heads, which enable miles of non-stop
quality printing at a speed of up to 885 feet/hr (270 m/hr).
The Matan Spot36 shares the same industrial design of the Matan Spring and is equally robust, while maintaining
an attractive contemporary high-tech look. It can print up to two colors in one pass in up to 400x1200 resolution.
Media width is up 36.6 inch (930 mm) and printing width is up to 36.38 inch (924 mm). Ribbons have been
uniquely developed for this printer and include a wide spectrum of spots, special traffic red, blue and green,
shiny metallic gold and silver, etched and opaque white. The Matan Spot36 supports a wide range of media,
including reflective traffic media.
"The Matan Spot36 fills the niche of a moderately priced digital printer for specialized high durability two-color
applications" says Hanan Yosefi, Matan's President and CEO. "It is particularly suitable for outdoor applications
such as wayfinding and traffic signage and for window decoration graphics. It is already installed and in
production at customer site in the USA and it will be presented at Matan's booth during Fespa Digital Printing
