“Print service providers can experience tremendous profit margins with an Acuity press, and the opportunities are endless. The Acuity platform provides a truly flexible production system that delivers consistent results, reliable production performance as well as economical cost-in-use.”

Acuity Wide-Format Printers
The Acuity platform comprises almost 20 different configurations to meet a wide range of user needs. It is built out around one of three models: the Acuity Select, the Acuity Select HS and the Acuity F.
Each platform, with Acuity and Uvijet UV ink technology, enables print service providers to produce point of sale graphics, indoor signage, industrial graphics and product decoration. They print on PVC, polycarbonate, styrene, acrylic, paper, board, wood, aluminum composite as well as other materials.
In addition, PSPs can create proofs for a customer that are identical to the production run. They print vibrant color images while grayscale printheads vary dot sizes to produce high definition and smooth graduations in skin tones. The printers can also use spot varnish ink to add impact (6 or 8 channel models). Moreover, they use white ink to produce images on transparent or colored materials.
Moreover, they can print color-white-color layers in one pass for two-sided images on transparent materials. The press can also print backlit images directly on transparent media.
