At ISA International Sign Expo 2017 in Las Vegas later this month Agfa Graphics will introduce the Avinci DX3200 dye-sublimation printer designed to deliver soft signage up to 3.2m wide, at a resolution of up to 1440 x 540dpi. The 6-colour (CMYKLcLm) machine offers different quality modes, with speeds up to 173m2/h, and is said to be compatible with most off-line calendering solutions.
Product manager Reinhilde Alaert, said: “Avinci can handle a wide variety of polyester-based applications. On top of that, it has smart algorithms on board that enable very low ink consumption – another important benefit for our customers.”
The Avinci DX3200 comes with Agfa Graphics’ Asanti workflow, including a series of features for soft signage printing, such as integration with Storefront for the automated management of web-to-print, automated positioning of grommets on banners, and the easy design of canvas extensions (like air pockets) for flags.
Asanti also recently introduced integrated tiling so that oversized banners or billboards that extend beyond the maximum printing width can be produced on Avinci DX3200. Asanti creates mounting instructions and adds the necessary marks to the tiled prints to help the operator mount them swiftly and in the correct way, thus avoiding unnecessary costs for reprints.
The Avinci DX3200 will also be demonstrated at Fespa 2017.
