Agfa Launches :M-Press Leopard
Following the 2009 launch of its :M-Press Tiger inkjet press, Agfa is now introducing a new member of the :M-Press family, the :M-Press Leopard. The machine will be formally introduced at the Fespa show in Hamburg later this month.
The :M-Press Leopard is designed to provide :M-Press technology at a lower price point than the Tiger. It prints at sizes of up to 1.6 by 2.6 metres. The machine features a simplified feed system, co-developed with Thieme, to handle substrates up to 20 kg/m2. The design allows for more applications which require more manual handling.
The Leopard uses Agfa’s UPH 2 (Universal Print Head) greyscale variable drop technology and prints are instantly cured, according to the company.
