Cowan Imaging Installs Canada’s First Agfa :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR Printer
The :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR is the first :Jeti printer to use the Ricoh Gen 4 variable grayscale print head technology. Agfa has created advanced waveform designs and introduced the :Anuvia HD ink technology to drive the Ricoh heads up to 30 KHz in binary and 13KHz in grayscale. With 4-colors and white as standard, the :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR delivers equivalent speeds in both binary and grayscale modes at resolutions up to 1200 dpi.
Throughput is rated at 1182 sq.ft./hr. in express mode, 582 sq.ft./hr. in production mode and 390 sq.ft./hr. in high quality mode. Agfa Graphics’ :Anuvia HD ink, with drops as small as 8pl, delivers maximum pigment density for saturated colors. The :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR consumes less than 0.7ml of ink per square foot.
“The ink consumption on the system is very low and on full-color work saves the user nearly $5 on every full 4 x 8 foot board,” Stirling added.“ The ink lay down is so smooth that it can be over-laminated with a film laminate, something that simply couldn’t be done with the older printers.”
The :Jeti 1224 HDCFTR is ideally suited for high resolution trade show graphics, POS (Point-of-Sale) displays, real estate signs, backlit signs, lenticular displays, high resolution banners, ceramic tiles, wood and many more flatbed applications.
“Overall, the :Jeti offers the best serviceability yet.Our lead operator on this printer said that if he was going to open a shop with a single printer, the :Jeti HDC would be it,” Stirling said.
