Agfa’s drupa Innovations to Show Commitment to Offset and Inkjet Printing
One of the two :Jeti 3020 Titans will be shown in a 36-head configuration, demonstrating productive CMYK printing in combination with a strong white-ink application (pre-, post- and spot white). The large 2 m x 3 m mounting bed supports both rigid and thin flexible material and is ideally suited both for opaque and transparent material, and supports multiple-up jobs and printing on smaller objects.
The second :Jeti 3020 Titan is the new system with a 48-head configuration. It guarantees high-quality and incomparable high-productivity printing, using 8 heads for each color (CMYKLcLm). It prints at the same high speeds for roll-to-roll and rigid materials, which makes it the most versatile wide-format printing solution on the market.
Also on show is Agfa Graphics’ ever-growing range of UV inks for industrial and sign & display applications. Agfa Graphics inks perform exceptionally strong on key quality parameters such as adhesion, open head time, shelf life, ink layer flexibility, scratch resistance, gamut rendering and outdoor durability.
What’s New in Commercial Printing?
Agfa Graphics will be extending its patented, ThermoFuse-based prepress system to high-volume printers. The :Azura TS system helps commercial printers to run more efficiently and to reduce their ecological footprint. The :Azura CX125 COU (Clean-out Unit) reduces gum consumption considerably and extends bath life. It is designed to handle plate volumes up to 40,000 m2 per year.
The newest version of Agfa Graphics’ award-winning workflow management suite, :Apogee 8 will also be demonstrated. :Apogee 8 features greater connectivity and drives an ever-growing range of digital presses. :Apogee 8 supports 64-bit systems and offers optimized imposition for large volume web printing systems. It will be driving systems live at drupa.
:Apogee StoreFront is a new cloud-based software solution that enables print service providers to market their services and products more efficiently. This web-to-print solution makes it easy to set up online stores for both printed and non-printed products. :Apogee StoreFront is ideally suited for printers who wish to attract a broader audience with additional services. As it is cloud-based, printers do not need to invest in hardware or additional bandwidth.
