Agfa Graphics to launch new fabric printing system at SGIA

Several printing systems and products from Agfa Pitman are making their first North America appearance at SGIA:

Jeti TitanX FTR - A 122"-wide, high resolution, production-class UV-four- or six-color plus white inkjet printing system with flat-to-roll option. Attendees can experience complete expanded inkjet engine portfolio and automated workflow production for Sign & Display markets at "House of Asanti"

SGIA 2013 attendees will be the first in the world to experience the new Ardeco fabric printing system. The Ardeco makes its global debut, flanked by several other Agfa Graphics printing systems, software, media and more, at booth #2228 at SGIA, opening at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Ardeco answers the growing market demand for soft signage and direct printed textile output. As a state of the art, high-end printing solution for soft signage applications, the Ardeco wide-format (126 inches / 3.2 meters) dye sublimation printing system comes in 8 or 12 print head configurations and an optional inline cold-knife cutting system for producing backlit displays, flags and more.

Attendees visiting the Agfa Pitman booth can also tour "The House of Asanti," named after the new automated wide format workflow solution. Asanti Suite, making its North America debut at SGIA 2013 and based on the award-winning Apogee workflow solution, is designed for wide format production.

Asanti's workflow optimization enhances all processes, removing the disadvantages caused when having to implement a variety of different tools and options. It offers a complete automated and integrated PDF workflow, drives multiple print devices, and increases productivity for sign and display applications.

"The House of Asanti," Agfa Pitman's new "Application Zone," was built using Asanti workflow. It  features two floors and six rooms of practical and creative designs - such as fine art, musical instruments, light fixtures, furniture, doors and more -- on the walls, windows and floors, all created by Agfa Graphics printing systems and media. Attendees can interact with the House of Asanti kiosk to learn how the many different applications were created and experience how Agfa Pitman technology can help them in their own business.

"From top to bottom, we have the most robust portfolio of inkjet engines, media and software available on the market today," said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America.

"Technology should enable creativity not hamper it. Our new software and printing technologies can assist the sign and display market in opening the door to new and unique print applications that were once more difficult and cumbersome to achieve. Thanks to these increased efficiencies, enabled by technology, sign and display makers can instead spend their precious time being creative and, ultimately, gain market share."
