Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions, a Kent-based digital print company founded in 1999, has installed an Fujifilm Acuity Prime via RA Smart.

The company was looking for an efficient flatbed printer and, after being impressed with a video demonstration, booked in for a live demonstration of the Acuity Prime at Fujifilm’s facility in Broadstairs in late 2021.

‘We almost didn’t believe what we were seeing during the video demo,’ said Sam Cherry, a director at Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions. ‘The printer performed beyond our expectations, but as it’s a new printer to the market we felt it was necessary to go and take a closer look. We went to Fujifilm’s facility in Broadstairs and liked what we saw so much, we placed our order there and then.’

The printer was installed at Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions in the middle of January, with Mr Cherry saying that the machine has already had a big impact. ‘The Acuity Prime enables us to provide a better service to our customers,’ he explained, ‘meeting their deadlines in a world where time is of the essence. We can provide a more streamlined approach along with a great end product. We’ve only been using the printer for a very short time on Acrylic, Foamex and Dibond so far, and are already really impressed with the output.

‘I don’t believe there is any better way we could have spent this amount of money in terms of the overall quality, print capability and production capacity we’ve just added to our business than with the Acuity Prime.’

Kevin Jenner, the European marketing manager at Fujifilm Wide Format Inkjet Systems, added, ‘We’re delighted with the impact the Acuity Prime has made on Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions’ business. The machine is part of our ‘new blueprint for wide format’, designed from the ground up to offer unrivalled ROI, and it’s immensely gratifying to see our confidence in this new flatbed press fully vindicated by such a respected UK sign and display business.’
