Fujifilm To Demo Inkjet/Sign Making Solutions at ISA Expo
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.
The new Uvistar2 will be shown for the first time at Sign Expo, and will be particularly interesting for shops looking to make the transition from solvent to UV printing. The Uvistar2 is ideal for POP, banner and billboard printing, and is offered in 3.5 and 5 meter widths to handle most any type of job. A unique feature of the Uvistar2 is new Parallel Drop Size (PDS) technology that jets both 20 and 40-picoliter drops in the same pass, resulting in excellent print quality at fast production speeds. With coverage of up to 1,940 sq ft/liter, FUJIFILM QK inks for the Uvistar2 provide the lowest ink consumption compared to other UV roll printers. Uvistar2 is designed for quick and easy changeovers from one material to another, and has an optional set of flatbed tables that can be used to print on rigid stocks of any length.
Wide Format Media
All printers running live at the booth will feature Fujifilm and Ultraflex wide format media. Sign professionals will be able to view and get “hands-on” access to a variety of media, including a color-matched array of banner materials, premium papers, adhesive backed vinyl, backlit media, canvas, wall and floor graphic media, and perforated window film. All of the media is designed for use on flatbed and roll print equipment and is the perfect complement to Fujifilm’s printer and ink solutions, offering sign printers innovative ways to produce indoor and outdoor signage for virtually any application.
