Inca, distributed exclusively through Fujifilm worldwide, launched a new model in its Onset lineup, a new variant of its Onset S40i machine that features a white channel. The machine will make its first trade show appearance next month at FESPA Eurasia, but is available commercially immediately.
The device, based on the six-colour S40i launched at drupa in May last year, is designed for backlit or frontlit display graphics. The S40i with white replaces two colour ink channels of the original S40i (light cyan and light magenta) with two white channels.
The Inca Onset S40i with white incorporates 168 Fujifilm Dimatix printheads (56 for white) on a full width print array. As a result the printer produces POS-quality display graphics at throughput speeds of up to 560 square meters per hour (CMYK only) equivalent to 112 full bed sheets per hour (3.14 x 1.6m), and onto substrates up to 50 mm (2 inches) thick. A choice of uni-directional, bi-directional and super high quality print modes can be selected depending on the specific job requirements.
The addition of the S40i with white variant brings thte total different configurations in Inca’s Onset range to 18.
