The European launch of Fujifilm’s super-wide format platform, the Acuity Ultra, will be at Fespa 2018 on stand D50.
The culmination of extensive market research, this latest addition to the range forms a key part of Fujifilm’s industrial strategy, offering increased size and quality to make the production of high-end interior graphics much more profitable. A number of beta sites are already operational in the UK and Spain.
Built around Fujifilm’s UV curing inkjet technologies, it offers almost photographic levels of quality with tighter registration and higher production speeds.
In 5m and 3.2m models, the Acuity Ultra is available with up to eight colour channels, using Uvijet GS Fujifilm ink. With a 3pl drop size the Acuity Ultra is designed for the high-end indoor display market, especially for luxury brands, with quality comparable to litho and leading water-based ink systems.
With a throughput of up to 236sqm/hr, the machine is capable of printing on three rolls simultaneously, as well as printing super-wide format graphics up to five metres in width.
Kevin Rhodes, marketing applications manager, said, ‘The Fujifilm Acuity series has long been known for its quality and reliability and, by adding this super-wide model to the range, we are now also offering customers a big step-up in quality and productivity. With the extra width, the option to print on three rolls simultaneously and the ability to print at high speeds with no compromise on quality, the Acuity Ultra will appeal to larger businesses and major luxury brands, helping them to boost production levels and profitability in this highly-competitive sector.’
Accompanying the Acuity Ultra on the stand will be the Acuity B1. Demonstrated at Fespa 2017, it is a versatile, high-quality modular printer for short-run graphic display work.
