Integrated DRS Fabrication


The DRS System is an advanced solution for the fabrication of traffic and work-zone signs. This highly efficient system was designed to service a broad spectrum of companies. Each System includes a printer, laminator, flatbed cutter, applicator as well as the appropriate software. DRS System takes advantage of third generation HP Latex printing technology. Printouts are protected by Integart’s specially formulated DRS Laminate to obtain a unified set of compatible components (USCC) covered by Integart’s 12 year warranty. DRS System is designed as an “Open Source” concept and supports various grades of reflective sheeting from different manufacturers.


When designing a traffic sign, you can work with your favoured software (AutoCAD, Desktop CAD, Impact CAD, CorelDraw, etc.) and use ready libraries of locally specified signs and fonts. DRS Workstation is based on specialized RIP software. Automatic advanced nesting software reduces material waste to a minimum. Integart provides you with ready profiles for different types of reflective sheeting to achieve optimum printability, curing, colour coordination and appropriate level of retro-reflectivity. DRS System uses one set of CMYK HP Latex inks to print on all types and grades of reflective sheeting, for both permanent and temporary signs. To run efficient production only two reflective sheeting colours are required - white and yellow. All other colour combinations are obtained through printing. Apart from typical traffic signs, DRS System will print work-zone, parking, identification, safety, warning and guide signs, full colour reflective billboards, city information maps, labels, street signs, tags and license plates. A built-in optical sensor (spectrophotometer) provides colour uniformity and repeatability on each and every printout. Prints are waterproof and durable. With a treatment done by the Ink Optimizer, printed traffic sign faces have enhanced resistance to abrasion. They can be used as temporary work-zone signs even with no laminate applied. Integart covers them with a 3 year warranty. For permanent traffic signs, it is recommended to protect all printouts with DRS Laminate. Laminated traffic sign faces are ready for immediate installation on either aluminium or steel sheets. Integart provides a 12 year warranty for the DRS laminated signs because of their excellent durability. This warranty covers UV radiation, abrasion and delamination resistance. It also covers chromaticity and retro-reflectivity parameters in compliance with ASTM, EN, BS, DIN*.


DRS Technology effectively replaces use of silk-screen printing, eliminates tiresome overlay film applications and considerably minimizes set-up time and it could be run by two operators. Print-on-demand helps to improve customer service. Sign faces are printed full colour and can be mounted immediately after lamination. With an optimized workflow, DRS boosts productivity, cuts down on inventory in both, raw material and semi-finished product. You’d require less space and fewer personnel to do the same job. Integart’s DRS System is recommended for low and high-volume production runs. It is easy to calculate cost of the job, unit cost of printing “one-offs” is identical to printing multiple pieces of the same kind. DRS is extremely flexible. New profiles for printing and cutting can be easily added or modified in order to adapt to particular job requirements.
