Agfa Goes Wider With :Anapurna M 2050
At this year's FESPA (Federation of European Screen Printers Associations) 2010 show in Munich, Agfa launched a new wide-format flatbed/roll-to-roll device known as the :Anapurna M 2050. The UV-curable machine, according to the company, combines the new 2.05 metre width with Agfa's latest M-series G2 inks and :Anapurna M2 speeds. This machine slots in between Agfa's popular 1.6-metre-wide offerings and the :Anapurna XL²/2500 LED series, which have a maximum width of 2.5 metres.
The :Anapurna M 2050 prints six colours plus white, a capability shared with its sibling, the :Anapurna Mw. It has eight printheads with a total of 8,192 nozzles firing 12-picolitre drops. The result is a resolution of 720 x 1440 dpi at speeds of 24 square metres per hour in four-pass bi-directional mode. The machine can print on rigid substrates in sizes up to 3 x 2 metres and up to 4.5 centimetres thick.
"Amongst the print options available on the :Anapurna M 2050, Agfa has also integrated a higher speed uni-directional mode for photographic quality," said Willy Van Dromme Business Line Manager for Wide Format Inkjet at Agfa Graphics. "Every application requests a different balance between speed and quality, and the system must allow for the best-fit printing mode."
