By Tim Sheahan, Tuesday 06 September 2011
Fujifilm has unveiled its latest inkjet roll-to-roll and flatbed UV-LED wide-format printer, the Acuity LED 1600, which is claimed to offer "best-in-class" productivity.
The new machine, which can print at a resolution of up to 1,200dpi, offers production speeds of up to 20sqm an hour for applications such as posters and point-of-purchase materials.
Fujifilm is targeting the 1,610mm-wide Acuity LED 1600 at companies producing short-run print jobs such as window displays and uses UV-curable ink which emits no VOCs.
According to Fujifilm, these inks have fast-drying properties on a broad range of substrates such as PET, acrylic, and polycarbonate.
The eight-colour machine features the ability to apply both colour and clear inks in a single pass for high-gloss applications.
The new machine also boasts Fujifilm's colour matching software that automatically generates a colour comparison chart against the desired colour to simplify the process of matching spot colours.
The Acuity LED 1600 will be showcased at Graph Expo 2011
, which takes place later this month in Chicago, U.S.
