Fujifilm to show Acuity Advance HS UV inkjet printer at Ipex
Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe will show its new Acuity Advance HS UV inkjet printer at Ipex in May. While the new HS printer maintains many of the design features of the Acuity HD2504 and the Acuity Advance models, a modified printhead array on the Advance HS has virtually doubled print speeds. Typical production speeds are quoted at 40m2/hr but there is an 'express' mode that delivers print at 65m2/hr for images viewed from greater distances.?
The flatbed design employs a zoned vacuum system to hold all types of media, including irregularly shaped materials or substrates with uneven surfaces. The vacuum system ensures accurate registration even on multiple passes. It also prints edge-to-edge, saving time and labour in post-print finishing. In addition, the Acuity Advance HS comes with a white option to complement the standard four colour CMYK ink set. The optional roll media unit can be installed to print a broad range of flexible materials. To maximise print time, the operator can prepare rigid media on the bed while the roll media unit is printing.?
The print performance on the HS is optimised by Fujifilm Sericol's Uvijet inks that incorporate its proprietary Micro-V dispersion technology for strong vibrant colours, wide adhesion range and print durability.?
Commercial shipments of the Acuity Advance HS UV begin next month.?
