Silicone Edge Graphics (SEG)
Orbus prints graphics for a wide variety of aluminum SEG frames and systems.
Silicone Edge Graphics (SEG) or Push-Fit fabric graphics are dye-sublimated printed fabric graphics that have a thin silicone strip on all edges. The silicone edge part of the graphic is “pushed” into the extrusion profile on the edge of the display, resulting in a taut and wrinkle-free appearance. SEG displays minimize the appearance of the frame system (hardware) because the graphic stretches to the very edges of the frame.
We stock Orbus and non-Orbus frames and a variety of beading types and widths, ensuring the perfect graphic fit for any frame system! Extrusion frames DO NOT need to be sent in for proper fitting. Simple details need to be provided to your sales representative.
Latex/UV Roll-to-roll & Flatbed Printing
With 7 state-of-the-art Latex/UV roll-to-roll and flatbed printers, we have the capacity to print over 9,500sq. ft. per hour. Our UV & Latex printers provide vibrant graphics with excellent longevity on a variety of rigid and flexible substrates. We also have the capability to print white ink on a variety of materials such as plexiglass, colored sintra or other various custom applications. Talk to your sales representative for more details. Once cured, the ink is bonded to the substrate and will not require lamination. These printing processes are the perfect solution for a variety of product types including Popup mural displays, Orbital Truss displays, contour cut applications, rigid substrates, acoustic panels, and more.
Our four high speed UV roll-to-roll printers use vibrant, durable and flexible inks allowing us to print for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications. UV printing is one of our most popular and economical solutions for banner stand graphics and outdoor tent applications.
Our highly-skilled sewing staff finishes each dye-sublimated fabric graphic by hand to ensure the perfect fit to the display frame. Fabrics are used for a number of products spanning our portable, custom modular and fabric architecture lines.
Our team custom tailors all types of graphics from hanging structure, pillowcase and SEG graphics to table throws, tents and outdoor flags. Custom graphic finishing such as zippers, silicone edge beading, hemmed edges and pole pockets are available upon request.
DIGITAL CUTTING CAPABILITIES
Utilizing 3 state-of-the-art laser cutters, 4 routers & 2 banner trimmers, we create fast and efficient workflows for finishing graphics on fabrics, vinyl, PVC’s and rigid graphics.
All UV printed vinyl banners are finished on a state-of-the-art automatic cutter, which trims graphics up to 50ft. per minute. The combination of our high-speed UV printers with this cutting technology enables us to provide a remarkably fast turnaround time on all FLATMAXX vinyl banner graphics.
The graphics we provide are G7 certified and printed on state-of-the-art equipment.
G7 certification helps ensure the production of the highest quality, consistent and accurate color graphics. G7 specifies the components of an image that define a similar “visual appearance" to the human eye.
- Defines a color metric definition for gray balance
- Specifies gray balance in the midtones and image contrast from the highlights to the shadows
- Defines the ideal colorimetric black and CMY gray-tone curves for an image
- Specifies a step-by-step method for calibrating proofing systems and printers to these tone curves
Orbus has been producing consistent, high quality graphics with accurate color to the G7 specification for over 10 years.
Other custom rigid materials are available upon request. Please contact your sales representative for more information. Fabric swatch cards are also available upon request.
