Hanover Park, IL—Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division, introduced the Acuity LED 40 series of flatbed printers. The new printer series features instant-on LED curing.
“With a variety of productive print modes, light and white ink options, and also an LED curing system demonstrating excellent environmental benefits with significant cost benefits to users, the new Acuity LED 40 series delivers superior print quality,” said Ramona Serafino, associate product marketing manager, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “This new series of UV flatbed printers will appeal to print service providers with a desire to output on substrates such as canvas, wood, tile, glass and heat-sensitive films.”
Acuity LED 40 Features
The Acuity LED 40 series of mid-volume UV flatbed printers is also a solution for customers in the sign and display graphics industry. The printers offer application versatility with rigid or flexible substrates, Serafino added.
The printers are designed as cost-effective solutions for growing print service providers as well as existing Acuity customers considering an upgrade. Acuity LED 40 printers provide production capacity speeds up to 538 square feet per hour.
Moreover, the standard model enables users to print on media or objects of any size up to 49×98 inches. The X2 (double bed size) model increases that capability to 98×121 inches. The series also features an added benefit of instant-on for immediate printing. Fujifilm eliminated the need to wait for the printer to warm up—a benefit to customers who are not involved in all-day production runs.
Furthermore, Acuity LED 40 printers utilize a new LED ink by Fujifilm, Uvijet KL. The printers are also available with four, six or eight color channels. Users have the option to add light inks and varnish for high-value applications. They can also upgrade to Fujifilm’s brightest white UV ink for backlit and fine art applications.
In addition, all of Fujifilm’s Uvijet inks are GreenGuard Gold certified. This is a stringent certification benchmark with regard to sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly. Certification ensures the output is suitable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
