Agfa Unveils Anapurna M3200RTR and Asanti
At FESPA 2013, running June 25 to 29 in London, Agfa Graphics launched its Anapurna M3200RTR wide-format system and a new workflow solution called Asanti for the display-graphics sector.
The Anapurna M3200 RTR is a 3.2-metre, roll-to-roll device, which features 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.
“Most UV-curable production printers designed to ease the transition away from solvent-based engines carry a heavy price tag,” stated Willy Van Dromme, Director of Marketing Wide Format at Agfa Graphics. “We have developed the Anapurna M3200 RTR to be a reliable and good quality system at a sensible and attractive cost.”
Also at FESPA, Agfa, building from its long-standing Apogee software, introduced new Asanti workflow for wide-format production. Asanti is a 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.
