Flatbed and Roll Printing Equipment
The new FUJIFILM Acuity LED 1600 wide format inkjet UV-LED printer will be shown for the first time at Sign Expo, and it is sure to interest sign making and display graphics professionals visiting the show. The Acuity LED uses a proprietary design, patent-pending UV-LED ink curing system to produce exceptional quality display graphics on roll or rigid substrates. LED curing technology provides many benefits including lower energy consumption and longer lamp life when compared to traditional metal halide UV curing technology. These benefits result in lower operating costs and reduced environmental impact, critical to staying competitive in today’s sign industry.
Reaching print speeds up to 215 sq ft/hr while providing outstanding quality output, the Acuity LED 1600 offers best-in-class productivity and provides the capacity and capability to meet customer demand for shorter delivery times. The Acuity LED provides a standard 8-color ink set including CMYK plus light cyan, light magenta, white and clear, and allows printing white or clear ink in a single pass for even greater productivity. Spot clear ink adds special effects to create more value to graphic displays and signs.
Also on display at ISA, the FUJIFILM Acuity Advance HS UV flatbed printer will demonstrate printing of near-photographic quality images at class-leading production speeds of 433 sq ft/hr. Utilizing greyscale printheads, the four-color Acuity also offers a white ink option for producing any number of print applications on substrates up to 1.89” thick. The Acuity Advance HS provides precise registration and edge-to-edge printing and offers a roll media option for a cost-effective hybrid solution. The versatility of the Acuity Advance HS makes it the ideal “first” flatbed, and prints direct to board, thereby eliminating mounting and laminating of roll stocks to rigid board.
