Fujifilm launches new Acuity printers
Fujifilm announced the launch of a new Acuity Prime flatbed printer, and the Acuity Ultra R2 superwide format printer. The new launches are part of Fujifilm’s strategy to create ‘the new blueprint’ for wide format by resetting expectations relating to price/performance, versatility, value and ease-of-use.
The Acuity Prime Flatbed
The new Acuity Prime flatbed prints at exceptionally high quality to a range of rigid and flexible media. The Prime is designed to be power efficient and only requires a single-phase 25-amp supply, helping to keep running costs to a minimum. It features a high quality LED curing system which is air-cooled, meaning there is no requirement for an expensive water-cooling system. It is equipped with a new ink system, the Uvijet HM, and a A new jetting primer.
The Acuity Ultra R2 superwide format printer
The Acuity Ultra R2 is available in 5m or 3.2m versions, and features the same high levels of quality and reliability as its predecessor, the Acuity Ultra.
It features a new, stylish enclosed design that eliminates stray UV light, removing the need for a light curtain. From a functional point of view the machine is designed with both maintenance and ink supply on the same side, giving operators easier access and more room in which to work when performing routine tasks. An external visual light also quickly alerts operators to low ink levels without the need to look inside the machine.
The Acuity Ultra R2 features larger ink tanks, integrated with maintenance-free ink pumps to increase up-time, and has a redesigned workstation.
