Fujifilm's Acuity Select HS 30 Series Making North American Debut at SGIA Expo
Hanover Park, Ill. — September 7, 2016 — Fujifilm North America, Graphic Systems Division announces the release of the new Acuity Select HS 30 series, a high speed addition to the popular Acuity Select series, makes its North American debut at SGIA Expo 2016, in Fujifilm booth # 1119.
Capable of printing at impressive print speeds of up to 620 sq. ft./hour, nearly double the speed of the Acuity Select 20 series — the new HS 30 offers all the benefits of this hugely popular and successful Acuity UV flatbed printer series, including superb versatility, near-photographic image quality, excellent ease of use, and the ability to produce a wide variety of applications on a range of substrates up to two inches thick.
The Acuity Select HS 30 offers enhanced print quality with the option of using light cyan and light magenta — ideal for producing photographic images or fine art reproductions.
The new pneumatic pin registration system allows quick and easy media loading, while productivity is further improved by an automated printhead maintenance system.
The UV lamp technology in the Acuity Select HS 30 opens the way for a broader range of thinner and sensitive media to be printed.
Finally, the HS 30’s enhanced high-pressure vacuum system reduces the need for masking of the bed and allows for easy loading of media.
Like the Acuity Select 20 series, the addition of light inks means that the 30 series also comes in two channel variations — six and eight channels, across six new models, which offer print quality to meet the exacting standards of the photographic and fine art sectors. The new Acuity Select HS 30 series is available in the standard (49.6x98.8) and X2 (98.8x121.7) print-bed sizes. A roll option is available for each.
The Acuity Select HS 30 series is designed to achieve the highest print quality possible by combining true flatbed architecture with greyscale technology. This combination maintains the well-earned reputation of the Acuity brand as the market leader in its field, ideal for high quality printing on both rigid & flexible media, and able to add capacity without compromising on quality.
“The Acuity Select HS 30 series continues to build on the success of Fujifilm’s Acuity flatbed printers,” says Mike Battersby, marketing manager, Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems, Broadstairs, United Kingdom. “From the launch of the Acuity 2504 in 2007, through to the Acuity Select 20, introduced in early 2016, this outstanding new machine has been specifically designed for those printing over 100,000 sq. ft./yr., or more; and those who are looking for capacity without compromising quality, or the specialty and industrial printers currently using analogue print technologies looking to migrate to digital printing – boosting production flexibility and enhancing profitability in the process.”
