What attracted you to ROQ in the first place and what made up your mind to purchase a Green Machine?
I was at ISS Long Beach to place an order for a new press. I ran into Larry from Canada and he told me about his business and how he was switching out his existing presses for ROQ machines. He introduced me to João and he showed me the machine and the PRU system. I was very impressed with the simplicity and efficiency of the press. We know we are one of the best at what we do so we wanted to choose a press from a company that are also that. We now own the best, most efficient press in the country!
Which machine did you decide on and why?
I decided on the ECO XL. Initially we were going to purchase the YOU XL but after considering the efficiency of the ECO we made the decision to spend a little more for the increase in efficiency of the machine. The print size was also a determining factor. We want the ability to produce any size job from small pocket prints up to beach towels and all over t-shirt prints. We also chose the ROQ Tunnel T4515G primarily because of the cost savings in running gas over electricity and also because the increased curing performance of the air forced gas for waterbased and discharge printing.
When you first got your new machine, what was the first thing you fell in love with?
We never have to manually spin the platens again.
Temperature probe on the flashes.
Ability to set multiple jobs up at a time.
How has ROQ changed your business or life?
The ECO press is so much more efficient and simple than our previous press…unbelievably so. It has given us the confidence to run lower quantities and produce work that we would not have before…more efficiently that ever before.
If someone asked you about buying a ROQ, what advice would you give them?
