GO's "Big Mouth" UV Printer Offers 4320 Cubic Inches--GO F-24 Small Format UV LED Printer

GO's "Big Mouth" F-24 Small Format UV LED Printer does it again by setting a new standard for the most usable printing area of a UV flatbed printer 24-inches and under. With a width of 24-inches by 18-inches and a depth of 10-inches, the GO F-24 is truly a "Big Mouth" and the only UV printer of this size actually able to print on four fully inflated basketballs at once. There are many requirements for printing unusual and thick objects of more than three or four inches thick. As a result the  GO  F-24 is quickly becoming the standard for small format UV printing due to its unique capabilities.  

Cubic Printing Space Comparison
When looking at the printable space of the GO F-24 Small Format UV LED Printer, the printable size dwarfs other units in its class. It is a fact only one competitive printer offers even half the space offered by the F-24. An overview of how the F-24 ranks in usable cubic printing size is as follows:
  • GO F-24--4320 Cubic Inches
  • DCS 1024UV--1440 Cubic Inches
  • Inkcups X2--1440 Cubic Inches
  • Mimaki UJF-6042--2336 Cubic Inches
  • Mutoh ValueJet-426UF--679 Cubic Inches
  • Roland LEF 20--679 Cubic Inches
As you will note, the F-24 offers 4320 cubic inches with largest size and the Mutoh ValueJet-426UF and the Roland LEF-20 being on the low end at 679 cubic inches. The F-24 offers over 600% more volume for printing as compared to the Mutoh and Roland units.

GO Announces First Printer Upgradable to Integrated Print-and-Cut--GO X-24P

Graphics One is pleased to announce the first eco-solvent printer which can be upgraded to an integrated print and cut system. The GO X-24P (P model) is a 24-inch eco-solvent printer targeted at garment decorators, display makers and those looking to produce cost effective decals. Following on the successful launch of the GO X-24PC (with integrated cutter), the printer only version offers the same capabilities, but without the cutting option.

GO’s X-24P embraces a new technology which allows users to upgrade from a printer-only model to a complete print-and-cut device. According to Christian Sam, GO Marketing, “Many potential customers already have cutters and would like to continue using their own. In this instance, we can provide them with a cost effective eco-solvent printing solution. For those who may need an option to upgrade to an integrated contour cutter at a later time, then this unit is perfect. No one else offers the ability to integrate a contour cutter at a later time. It is really up to the user.”

GO’s X-24P is a 4 color printer offering imaging up to 1440 dpi with DX5 printhead technology and comes complete with the stand, ink and RIP. The GO EcoColor eco-solvent ink produces durable images for both indoor and outdoor applications and is perfect for the targeted applications.

Priced at $7,195, the GO X-24P printer package includes the printer, a heavy duty printer stand, four 220 ml cassettes of GO EcoColor Ink and FlexiSign RIP. The contour cutting upgrade is only $800 for a GO X-24 system for a total of $7,995. Additionally, GO’s EcoColor eco-solvent ink is priced at $45 per 220 ml cassette and is manufactured in the U.S. The GO X-24 printer will begin shipping in late July.
