At FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 (Munich, May 14th-17th), Fujifilm will use its stand (G15 in Hall A5) to showcase the Acuity Ultra, a superwide format printer targeted at the high end indoor graphics and outdoor signage markets. This latest addition to the Fujifilm Acuity range is unlike anything currently available on the market. It is a high productivity, UV superwide format printer offering almost photographic levels of quality at greater speeds, lower cost in use and better return on investment than any other existing machine.
The machine generated huge interest when it made its FESPA debut at the 2018 show in Berlin, and with a number of high-profile installations across Europe now complete, visitors to this year’s exhibition in Munich will be able to hear more about this platform’s remarkable capabilities.
The Acuity Ultra is available in 5 metre and 3.2 metre models with eight colour channels. It uses a new, high quality, low film weight Uvijet GS ink which is GREENGUARD and AgBB approved. This ink has been specifically designed to deliver the highest quality and is fully emission-compliant for interior graphic display work.
With a 3.5pl drop size ensuring incredible quality, the Acuity Ultra is ideal for the high end indoor display market, especially for brands focussing on the highest possible quality. Operating with conventional UV technology, it runs at much higher speeds than LED competitors, but as the vacuum table is efficiently water cooled, it does not build up excessive heat on the print plate, meaning no shrinkage and allowing the use of heat sensitive substrates. Linear motors also ensure smooth edge-to-edge printing with no vibrations at the end of the run. With a throughput of up to 236m2 per hour, the machine is capable of printing on three rolls simultaneously, as well as printing superwide format graphics up to five metres in width.
