Fujifilm has announced a new machine in its Acuity series, the Acuity LED 1600R.
This dedicated roll-to-roll printer offers four-colour CYMK printing. Fujifilm says the printer shares all the benefits in quality and performance of the Acuity LED 1600 II hybrid model.
The printer uses Fujifilm Dimatix Q-class industrial print heads and offers four channels, with the option of a modular upgrade in the field up to eight channels. It features a high density mode capable of handling heat-sensitive roll media, making it suitable for backlit and window applications. Like the Acuity LED 1600 II, it offers productivity of up to 33sqm/hr.
The company says the new printer produces low levels of heat and requires lower ink volumes and less power than similar machines on the market. It has instant start-up, long-life LED UV lamps, no ozone or VOC emissions, and only one consumable: the ink.
The printer uses the new Fujifilm Uvijet RL ink range, available in CMYK and CMYK plus light cyan and light magenta. It offers a modular upgrade option to include white and, later this year, the company will add an option for up to eight channels to include clear ink. Fujifilm claims near-photographic print quality at an impressive speed with the combination of its new ink and printheads.
