The company took delivery of the 3.2m wide roll-to-roll LED printer from CMYUK earlier this year, with the machine replacing an older EFI VUTEk QS 3200 hybrid printer.

Sound Control provides a range of acoustic solutions such as panels, foam, blankets, baffles and vibration damping materials for customers in the education, corporate, community, industrial, marine, media and military.

This wide-ranging offering led Sound Control to the purchase of its new EFI machine, a decision that owner and managing director, Jim O’Shaughnessy, says has opened up a “whole new world” for the company.

“We’ve definitely branched out because we’ve really had to justify buying a printer of this calibre,” O’Shaughnessy says, adding: “With this new machine we can do so much more, and it has presented us with more opportunities. It’s opened up a whole new world.

Obviously the Pro 32r is a big step-up but all we ever print is fabric and a dedicated roll-to-roll system is absolutely perfect for us

“We produce large volumes of architectural products such as panels that hang from the ceilings,  baffles that reduce unwanted ambient noise in large spaces such as gyms, halls, lobbies,  and wall panels. 

“However, now we've got the ability to print on the fabrics that surround these products – the Pro 32r produces really fantastic prints at really high quality.”

O’Shaughnessy adds: “Obviously the Pro 32r is a big step-up but all we ever print is fabric and a dedicated roll-to-roll system is absolutely perfect for us.”
