DPI appoints Butler to technical role
Display solutions provider Digital Print Innovations (DPI) has appointed inkjet technology and colour expert Richard Butler as technical director. The company said Butler's authority in installation, training and colour management of wide-format systems is endemic to the quality of service that it provides across a range of machines, including the Meital and WP Digital UV-curable flatbed printers for which DPI has exclusive distributorship.
Butler witnessed the entry of DPI's Meital and WP Digital (formerly Sp?hl) products into the UK market, installing, maintaining and optimising of a number of machines of these types over the past six years. As technical director, he will also lead the support service for the Seiko II solvent-based printers and Esko Artwork's Kongsberg cutting tables.
Until recently a colour specialist covering support, installation and colour management for Andersons, his expertise encompasses a vast array of technologies and processes in the wide-format sphere. At his previous post Butler provided end user training, implementation and colour profiling on all major RIP packages, including Onyx, Best, Caldera, Shiraz, ColorGate, ScreenGate, Oris and Wasatch, across hardware from HP, Mimaki, Seiko, Epson, Summa and Mutoh.
"Butler's extensive practical knowledge of a plethora of Rip platforms and printing technologies is the perfect complement to our start-to-finish wide-format options, and we are very excited to welcome him on board," said Stewart Bell, managing director of Derbyshire-based DPI.?
