Agfa Graphics' New Anapurna M2500i Inkjet Printing System Makes Global Debut at SGIA 2014
LAS VEGAS—October 22, 2014—Agfa Graphics today announced the worldwide launch of the new Anapurna M2500i with optional automated board feeder (ABF). It will be demonstrated at the Agfa Graphics booth #2019 at SGIA 2014 being held in Las Vegas (USA) Oct. 22-24. The Anapurna M2500i is the most recent i-series introduction, offering printing systems with higher productivity and quality.
The Anapurna M2500i is a 98-inch (2.5 m) wide, six-color plus white UV-inkjet printing system with an automated board feeder (ABF) designed for sign shops, digital printers, photo labs and graphic screen printers. The M2500i is ideal for indoor, outdoor and niche applications such as art reproductions, mouse pads, DVDs, wood, architectural and interior decorations, lenticular displays and more.
"We are committed to helping print service providers use technology to offer their customers the widest range of print products they possibly can," said Willy Van Dromme, director of marketing, Inkjet Systems, Agfa Graphics. "We are determined to develop the technology that can help PSPs take concepts to reality in the most efficient and cost-effective ways possible."
The system features robust engineering for sustained higher workloads. The Anapurna M2500i offers increased print throughput while also achieving a high level of print quality. It prints on rigid and flexible media including boards/sheets, roll-to-roll and roll-to-sheet. Multiple boards or borderless printing increases productivity even more. The system's automated board feeder also increases productivity by allowing for volume printing of small board sizes (up to five boards can be printed in parallel).
The Anapurna M2500i features six Konica-Minolta KM 1024i Grayscale print heads for color and two KM 1024i heads for white. It prints at a maximum resolution of 1,440x720 dpi and has a maximum speed of 1,238 ft2/hr (115m2/hr).
