Chris Graham of Premedia Technologies in New Zealand has reported sales of Human Eyes 3D technologies to the commercial offset, label and the wide format sectors.
He says that you can now get 3D Printing out of the box in Auckland, and at any size that you want. Impressions International Limited has invested in Humaneyes Producer 3D Litho and at the same time DE Group Limited has invested in Humaneyes Producer 3D Digital. Impressions International, the specialist label printer will be producing volume small format Lenticular prints on their Heidelberg 52 UV press, whilst DE Group, the Exhibition and signage specialists, will be driving their OCE Arizona large format flatbed printer to create one off short run lenticular pieces as well as large format Lenticular and Lensfree products.

Dale Bamford, the General Manager of Impressions International said “We saw lenticular last year at a show in Japan and put it on our list of things to do. We quickly established that Humaneyes were a significant player in this area and started working with both them and Premedia to bring lenticular into our product line”. Dale continues “The learning curve has been considerable but the new Producer 3D from Humaneyes makes the whole process very streamlined, very efficient, but most of all consistent and repeatable. The response to date from the marketplace has been extremely positive and we are all very excited about the potential.
Chris Clews, Managing Director of DE Group, was equally up-beat “Lenticular printing has been on our road map for several years and we purchased the Oce Arizona flatbed knowing that it was one of the leading options for creating large format Lenticular printing direct to lenticular lenses. The fact that we can also print Lensfree and do short runs on to low cost Litho lenticular is all an added bonus. The sales team are already getting some amazing enquiries from both existing, and new customers. Working with Impressions will gives us the potential to have small format handouts or inserts carrying the same message or image as the large format displays or POS we produce. The relationship offers massive opportunities for highly creative marketing.”
Producer3D from Humaneyes embeds a powerful interlace engine with a full array of prepress tools that make lenticular printing easier than ever, Producer3D maximizes printers’ productivity and allows them to work seamlessly with their existing printing equipment to produce superior results that get noticed.
