Agfa Unveils Ardeco for Textile Printing
Agfa Graphics, during FESPA 2013 in London, England, introduced its new Ardeco wide-format system to produce direct printed textile output and soft-signage applications.
The sublimation-based Ardeco machine features built-in calendaring and an inline cold-knife cutting system. It is available with a choice of print-head configurations and carries a maximum printing width of 3.2 metres.
“Digital textile printing is really coming of age and the Ardeco system will satisfy sign-makers and display producers wanting to benefit from the engine's high productivity and our Asanti solution,” stated Willy van Dromme, Director of Marketing Sign and Display at Agfa Graphics.
During FESPA, Agfa introduced a new workflow solution called Asanti for the display-graphics sector. The software is built on Agfa’s long-standing Apogee line of PDF-based workflow for tasks like colour management, file editing, RIPping and pre-flighting. It includes the Asanti StoreFront, a Web-to-print application based on cloud technology.
Agfa also recently launched its Anapurna M3200RTR wide-format system as a 3.2-metre, roll-to-roll device with a six-colour, UV-curing ink system. It supports dual-roll printing and produces a maximum 1,440-dpi resolution, while working with flexible materials like banners, self-adhesive vinyls, and front- and back-lit graphics.
