Agfa Graphics to Demo UV Inkjet Digital Printing Technology at Open House
ELMWOOD PARK, N.J.—June 11, 2015—Agfa Graphics is hosting an open house at FASTSIGNS of Grand Rapids, Michgan, to demonstrate the new Anapurna M2500i printing system and Asanti automated workflow for digital printing. The open house event is taking place on Tuesday, June 23, 2015, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the FASTSIGNS located at 3582 29th Street SE, Suite 101 in Grand Rapids, MI.
"We spent several months evaluating the equipment options and decided on the Anapurna M2500i. Key to our decision was finding a hybrid flatbed that could support our growth, add new capabilities for our customers, and be able to upgrade the equipment in the future as we grow," said Kim Gilpin, president, FASTSIGNS, Grand Rapids, MI. "In the short time we have been operating the M2500i, we are impressed with the speed, quality and ease of use. We are very pleased with our decision purchase from Agfa."
The Anapurna M2500i is a six-color plus white, 98" (2.5 m) UV-inkjet printing system with an automated board feeder (ABF). It offers dual board printing (two 4x8" boards or single board landscape) and can handle rolls up to eight feet. The Anapurna M2500i can print three layers while using less ink in a single pass.
The Asanti workflow hub controls the Anapurna M2500i for a more efficient production at FASTSIGNS. Open House attendees can learn how Asanti smoothly integrates both the preparation and printing of jobs in an easy-to-use interface. Asanti's Adobe Print Engine provides full JDF control and automated accountability. At the same time, Asanti always allows for operator control, giving production managers the ability to make on-the-fly corrections and adjustments when necessary.
The event is being held on Tuesday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at FASTSIGNS' facility, located at 3582 29th Street SE, Suite 101 in Grand Rapids, MI.
