HumanEyes Touts Lenticular and 3D Results on Next Generation UV Printers from HP, Gandinnovations, Fujifilm Graphic Systems and Océ
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL/NEW YORK CITY—August 30, 2007—HumanEyes Technologies is demonstrating powerful 3D and lenticular production on the newest UV flatbed inkjet printers at its partners’ booths throughout Graph Expo, being held in Chicago, IL from September 9-12. HumanEyes software allows printers to take advantage of the newest technology to produce high quality lenticular and 3D effects on digital presses from HP (booth 1229), Gandinnovations (booth 4474), Fujifilm Graphic Systems (Booth 4381, 4480) and Océ (4463).
The latest hardware developments are making the production of lenticular easier, faster and of highest quality. New processes and materials have also considerably reduced the cost of specialty print production.
The next generation of UV curable ink flatbed presses offer very low drop volume, resulting in substantially high resolution, closely comparable to that of photo quality desktop inkjets and high-end plotters. Also, an impressive geometric accuracy of drop placement secures highly accurate printing. These features produce very high quality lenticular printing.
“These new presses fit to lenticular printing like a glove. The high print quality and accuracy allow for very deep 3D, as well as extremely precise, accurate and crisp 2D animation effects. HumanEyes has tested the new presses and has also qualified and optimized a lenticular workflow for each of them,” explains Duby Hodd, HumanEyes CEO.
In addition to the excellent lenticular print quality enabled by the resolution of the new flatbed printing systems, this high resolution also allows lenticular producers to take advantage of a new line of relatively thin and therefore, more affordable lenticular stock. These new lenses, originally designed for litho printing, have also been tested and qualified for digitally printed applications by HumanEyes.
“The quality achievable by the new digital presses generates superb quality on the new lenses. The lower cost of the thinner lenses is further making lenticular more attractive and easier to sell to end users,” adds Hodd.
