Czech print business praises the print quality of the Onset X3 and the increased production speed and capacity now possible with the latest automation features

ASTRON group, based in Prague, started as a small studio in 1993. Now, with a 300-strong team, it is a major player in the Central European print market, offering a wide range of products; from magazines and leaflets; to banners, POS, and illuminated and 3D signage. Its customer base covers the public sector, small local businesses, and large national and multinational brands. One area the company highly prides itself on is its high-quality sign making, and in late 2019 it invested in an Onset X3 HS from Fujifilm, with High Five and Dual Flex robotics, to produce exceptional print work in the fastest possible time.
Leading up to the Coronavirus outbreak of 2020, ASTRON group was hitting annual turnovers of almost €20m. The business has always been run very efficiently, and when the time came to increase production capacity even further in its large format division, ASTRON group went on the lookout for some of the most advanced print technology on the market.
