Agfa Introduces Anapurna H1650i LED
At C!Print 2018 in Lyon, France, running from February 6 to 8, Agfa Graphics introduced its new Anapurna H1650i LED inkjet printing system. The 1.65-metre-wide hybrid printer, according to the company, is designed as an accessible and cost-effective LED production system.
Agfa explains the Anapurna H1650i LED is a smaller version of its Anapurna H2050i LED printer, while sharing some of the same features. Like other systems in the Anapurna series, the H1650i LED prints on rigid and flexible media by means of LED curing, and includes Agfa’s thin-ink-layer and white-ink technologies.
“The hybrid Anapurna H1650i LED printer was designed as a robust, qualitative and versatile entry-level option for wide-format print service providers,” said Philip Van der Auwera, Product Manager, Agfa Graphics. “Although smaller, it is equipped with features normally reserved for higher-end printers, such as automatic head height measurement, crash prevention and an anti-static bar, thus offering the very best at a reasonable price.”
Anapurna LED engines also leverage a reinforced belt drive and shuttle beam, a gradient and multi-layer functionality and six 12-picoliter print heads. The printers are fitted with air-cooled UV LED lights that allow for printing on thin and thermal sensitive substrates, with lower energy consumption than traditional UV curing methods.
