Magnum Magnetics Makes Big New Product Announcement
Magnum Magnetics Corporation announces the impending rollout of its newest product, DigiMaxx, its first printable, flexible magnetic material
designed for superwide format printing applications above 40 inches.
Prior to Magnum Magnetics’ announcement, printers of magnetic signage and graphics looking to fill wide format needs were forced to import material
from overseas because no domestic manufacturer of printable magnets could accommodate widths of 40 inches or higher. Some customers reported
that some of the foreign material suffered from quality issues and long delivery times.
Common wide format magnet applications include retail signage, point of purchase displays, large graphics, and restaurant menuboards. Many retailers
that use large format signs prefer magnetic signage because it holds up well and is easier to remove and replace than paper or plastic.
Wider width rolls are a new space for the company. Digital Output spoke with the Magnum Magnetics team, who explained that DigiMaxx developed
over a three to four year time span, with a lot of feedback from customers. While roll stock is currently available, Magnum Magnetics plans to have
sheeting capabilities in late second quarter of this year.
DigiMaxx runs on many commercial wide format UV flatbed or inkjet presses, much like paper stock. Its standard thickness is 20-mil (.50mm) and 30-mil
(.76mm), but can be custom ordered to different thicknesses. Magnum Magnetics can also customize roll lengths and widths, laminates, and adhesive
backings for specific customer needs.
