Agfa Graphics launches Jeti 1224 UV HDC inkjet printer
Agfa Graphics has brought out its first Jeti inkjet printer since acquiring the business from Gandi. At the ISA show in Orlando, US, Agfa Graphics launched the Jeti 1224 UV HDC inkjet printer said to produce photo realistic quality, grayscale output at up to 110m2/hr. First customer shipments will start on 1 June.?
Designed for three shift operations, the new printer has a linear motor driven vacuum flatbed and an optional roll-to-roll feature. The flatbed can print on anything reasonably flat up to 508mm thick and can support media rolls up to 113kg.?
The Jeti 1224 UV HDC uses the Ricoh Gen 4 variable grayscale printhead technology and has introduced the Anuvia HD ink technology to drive the Ricoh heads up to 30KHz in binary and 13KHz in grayscale. With four-colour and white as standard the Jeti 1224 UV HDC delivers equivalent speeds in both binary and grayscale modes at resolutions up to 1200dpi. ?Throughput is rated at 110m2/hr in express mode, 54m2/hr in production mode and 36m2/hr in high quality mode.?
"Agfa is always looking for new ways to speed up the printing process whilst increasing the quality and lowering costs of production. The Anuvia HD ink on the Jeti 1224 UV HDC system provides a higher yield and wider colour gamut to help our customers increase their profit margins, produce output with vibrant colour, and provide the lowest ink consumption in its class," said Richard Barham, vice president of inkjet, Agfa Graphics.?
