Vanguard Digital’s Newest Printing System Wins SGIA “Product of the Year” Award

VK300D UV Flatbed offers astonishing quality with no banding for less than $200K

Suwanee, GA — Vanguard Digital Printing Systems ( is proud to announce its newest printer, the VK300D | 5' x 10' Flatbed UV Printer, is the proud winner of the widely sought after SGIA “Product of the Year” award in the “UV Flatbed ($100K - $200K)” category at this year’s annual SGIA Expo.

The VK300D is a high-productivity system boasting industry-leading output and design. Introduced in May, the VK300D prints at resolutions up to 1800 apparent DPI, features adjustable LED curing technology for greater control on a variety of substrates (CureGuard™), anti-static bars (StaticGuard™) and accepts both rigid or flexible media.

The Vanguard team has worked diligently to ensure a G7-certified color gamut that runs up to a blazing 40 boards per hour in production mode and up to 30 boards per hour in quality mode on substrates as large as 61” x 123” and 4” thick.

The 4.25”, Kyocera greyscale print head has 2,656 nozzles and jets 3.5, 7 and 10.5 picoliter drop sizes which produces beautiful photo-realistic quality at astonishing speeds. Vanguard’s proprietary formulated CMYK plus white ink blend yields the brightest and most vibrant colors with superior adhesion, making it among the best in the UV market.

“We said this printer was a game-changer and the industry agrees,” said Dave Cich, President, Vanguard Digital Printing Systems. “there’s tremendous interest in this system, so clearly the VK300D is satisfying what the market wants in a wide-format flatbed device. We’ve achieved the right combination of speed, quality and price with the VK300D and the market has responded with the same enthusiasm we have.”

The VK300D joins the VR5D flatbed UV inkjet printer, the flagship product in the Vanguard portfolio. The VR5D utilize a CMYK plus white ink set, with the latest Ricoh Gen 5 print heads and proprietary BandGUARD™ technology. BandGUARD technology utilizes a symmetrical print head alignment (ymck-kcmy) to all but eliminate bi-directional banding. The VR5D and VK300D can both be upgraded onsite with additional print heads for increased speed and productivity.
