RTI Digital and #1 Network Partner to Introduce Vortex® 4200 Throughout North America

Powered by Memjet Wide Format Technology, Vortex 4200 Delivers Profitable Short Run, Versioned Signage and Display Graphics

KITCHENER, ON--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - RTI Digital, Ltd., part of the Reprographic Technology group of companies and, a leading industry supplier to the digital production print, wide format print and label print markets, announced a reseller agreement with Effingham, IL-based #1 Network. As part of the new partnership, #1 Network will provide sales, marketing and integration support of the RTI Vortex 4200, a wide format printer, to its reseller network of over 60 North American locations starting April 21. 

The 42 inch wide full color printer is based on the Memjet's unique Waterfall Print Technology®, which provides revolutionary high print speed and superior quality. Compared to traditional wide format printers, the Vortex 4200 delivers incredibly fast job turnaround times and an attractive total cost of ownership. The Vortex prints at up to 12 inches (30 cm) per second (IPS) allowing Print Shops and in-plant customers to output up to over 9000 sq/ft (836 sqm) per hour of full color graphic arts for signage, (POP), GIS and other wide format technical applications. 

RTI will be kicking off the Vortex launch at the #1 Network Dealer Meeting on April 7-8 in St Louis, MO. This is to be followed up with detailed Vortex 4200 sales and technical training for #1 Network dealers.

"The Vortex 4200 creates an all new product class that bridges the gap between wide format and offset printing. This printer is the only true short run, wide format solution. Both digital and traditional shops can extend their productivity and profitability with the Vortex 4200," said Kevin Glosser, Director of Sales for # 1 Network. "We are extremely excited to offer this solution to our customers. Finally short run, versioned signage and display can be both profitable and efficient. Our tests have shown the Vortex to offer real world productivity that is 10 to 20 times faster than the typical wide format and flat bed devices employed today." 

"We are extremely excited to have #1 Network come on board and support our domestic efforts in marketing the Vortex 4200. Through our partnership with #1 Network, we can offer a turnkey solution to #1 Network customers that includes media, finishing and integration support," said Michael Midkiff, RTI's North American Business Director for print solutions. "This full solution will enable customers to realize new potential for managing larger short-turn print jobs that are ideally suited for the Vortex 4200."
