Magnum Magnetics Makes "Big New Product" Announcement
Press release date: March 10, 2014
Marietta, OH — Magnum Magnetics® Corporation today announced the impending rollout of its newest product, DigiMaxx™, its first printable, flexible magnetic material designed for super-wide-format printing applications (above 40”).
Prior to Magnum’s announcement, printers of magnetic signage and graphics looking to fill wide-format needs had been forced to import material from overseas because no domestic manufacturer of printable magnets could accommodate widths of 40” or higher. Some customers reported that some of the foreign material suffered from quality issues and long delivery times.
“Our magnet is made in the USA,” says Magnum Magnetics president Mark Bradley. “Therefore Magnum is able to offer better lead times, outstanding customer service, and innovative, high quality products.”
Common wide-format magnet applications include:
• retail signage
• point-of-purchase displays
• large graphics
• restaurant menuboards
Many retailers that use large-format signs prefer magnetic signage because it holds up well and is easier to remove and replace than paper or plastic.
DigiMaxx runs on many commercial wide-format UV flatbed or inkjet presses, much like paper stock. Its standard thickness is 20mil (.50mm) and 30mil (.76mm), but can be custom-ordered to different thicknesses. Magnum can also customize roll lengths and widths, laminates, and adhesive backings for specific customer needs.
