Agfa Graphics has unveiled its new Jeti Ceres RTR3200 LED high-speed roll-to-roll printer for mid- to high-end applications.
The dedicated 3.2m roll-to-roll printer with UV LED curing offers optional white printing features and a primer capability. It can print on single and dual roll media at speeds of up to 186sqm/hr.
Agfa says the machine’s sturdy design guarantees low-maintenance functionality in the long-term, while its UV LED curing lamps save costs, increase eco-friendliness, broaden the printable media range and eliminate lamp-based downtime.
Reinhilde Alaert, marketing product manager for sign and display high-end at Agfa, says, “Our goal with this new engine is to maximize productivity while staying true to Agfa Graphics’ industry-leading image quality and low ink consumption, which is why we bring a roll-to-roll alternative in the Jeti product family.
“This engine is no lightweight. It’s is the workhorse for roll-to-roll applications. It offers speed, precision and efficiency required by intensive print firms – and the UV LED curing process only adds to its business-boosting capacity.”
Agfa says the Jeti Ceres. can print on heat-sensitive media such as self-adhesive sheets and PVC without warping or wrinkling them. The white ink circulation extends along the entire ink line.
Alaert says, “Agfa Graphics’ thin ink technology results in wide-gamut, vibrant images – no matter the substrate. Our inks’ high pigmentation, along with our deep understanding of the physics of ink jetting, keeps ink consumption low, extremely precise and waste-free.”
Agfa Graphics’ Jeti Ceres also adds a primer option. It pre-prints a fine layer of primer automatically before depositing ink, preparing the top layer for ideal surface tension to better receive ink. This avoids downtime and reprints and helps enhance the productivity of the system and the image quality with minimal impact on cost per square meter.
Asanti, Agfa’s wide-format printing workflow software, directs the printing process through prepress, production and finishing. The Jeti Ceres with Asanti are also compatible with Agfa Graphics’ cloud-based PrintSphere, which standardises the flow of information between customers, colleagues, freelancers, departments and other Agfa printing solutions.
