SPEEDPRO ADDS NEW PRINT SYSTEM AT SAN CARLOS FACILITY
There’s a giant new printer in town! Meet “Ana”, the nickname given to the latest grand-format print system online at SpeedPro SF Peninsula. The AGFA Anapurna H3200i is a state-of-the-art hybrid printer, providing both “flatbed” capability for direct printing to rigid substrates (such as foamboard, PVC panels, metal, wood and acrylic) and also to roll media (fabric, scrim banner, adhesive vinyl, wallpaper and more).
With a print width of over 3.2 meters (approximately 128″), the Anapurna H3200i can print banners up to 10ft high by 120ft wide or swiftly print panels for trade show exhibits with fantastic speed and amazing resolution. This printer adds to SpeedPro’s array of latex and eco-solvent printers, replacing the previous UV flatbed. With the increased speed and capacity, SpeedPro of SF Peninsula can handle an even-larger workflow while maintaining their leading customer service and quality.
The :Anapurna printer line is manufactured by Agfa Graphics, a division of Agfa-Gevaert N.V., a Belgian-German multinational corporation that develops, manufactures, and distributes analog and digital imaging products. Agfa’s proprietary UV-cured inks are noted for being both eco-friendly and for the adhesion, flexibility and scratch resistance of the cured ink layer’s physical properties.
Additionally, the white ink capabilities on this machine allows us to do spot white, white flood behind clear (for outward facing window projects) and a variety of effects on metal and brushed metal substrates.

SpeedPro, a San Carlos based provider of vehicle wraps and premium display graphics has seen a surge in food-related projects in the past year. “We’ve been fortunate to work with some great brands like Whole Foods Market, SPUD.com, and Boudin Bakery Restaurants,” said Paul Reinhardt, Speedpro’s president.
