Agfa to show latest UV-curable inkjet printers at FESPA

Apr '14
At FESPA 2014, Agfa Graphics will show the latest additions to its portfolio of UV-curable wide-format inkjet printers, including two models from the new Anapurna i-series as well as the new Jeti Titan S/HS – all fuelled by the company’s proprietary UV-curable inks. Driving all wide-format engines on the booth will be Agfa Graphics’ dedicated Asanti workflow software. 
 
The new Anapurna i-series of UV-curable inkjet printers moves up-market delivering both more productivity and quality per invested euro/dollar. 
The 2.05m wide Anapurna M2050, the best-selling hybrid printer in its segment, has been redesigned to meet the need for higher performance in an increasingly professionalized market – at a highly competitive price point. Incorporating the latest generation of high-resolution print heads, the Anapurna M2050i achieves a productivity increase of at least 50%, in addition to optimized dot positioning and thus higher image quality. It features Agfa Graphics’ ‘white ink management’ solution for highly reliable white printing.
The 3.2m wide dedicated roll-to-roll UV-curable Anapurna M3200i RTR is a first-in-industry mid- to high-end printer with a broad application scope at entry-price level. At FESPA, it will be shown with dual roll capability to maximize efficiency. The new mesh option enables printing on mesh material without liner.
 
All Anapurna i hybrid engines are prepped for integration with an ABF (automatic board feeding) system for enhanced productivity and convenient multi-board feeding. They also got a brand new contemporary design. 
 
The Jeti Titan S and HS were launched at the beginning of the year and have since won much acclaim. These true flatbed printers, targeted at the high-end segment, combine exceptional print quality and high productivity at a best-in-industry price point. At FESPA, the Jeti Titan S/HS will be shown with an additional primer feature, which improves adhesion on thermoplastic substrates. A (spot) varnish option to create an appealing cosmetic effect will follow later. 
 
Agfa Graphics’ automated Asanti workflow software will be driving all engines. This dedicated development adds color management and automates wide-format production to help even the most demanding sign & display printers increase productivity, as well as produce consistent and compelling quality time after time. It is completed by the Asanti StoreFront cloud-based web-to-print system, which comes as an optional low-investment SaaS solution. 
 
Last but not least, Agfa Graphics will present its large gamut of UV inks. These inks are tuned to the specifics of each system for optimal reliable printing of the most demanding wide-format indoor and outdoor applications. Thanks to Agfa’s ‘thin ink layer’ pigment dispersion technology, they deliver the highest coloring power, as well as the lowest ink consumption per square meter in the industry. This results in better looking prints and saves on inks costs.
