The Acuity LED 40 series with instant-on LED curing is the newest addition to Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division’s Acuity platform.

Designed to be a cost-effective printer for growing print service providers as well as existing Acuity customers considering an upgrade, the new series of mid-volume UV flatbed printers provides production capacity speeds up to 538 square feet per hour. The standard model enables users to print on media or objects of any size up to 49 x 98 inches, while with the X2 (double-bed size) model, increases to 98 x 121 inches. The 40 Series also features an added benefit of instant-on for immediate printing, Fujifilm explains, saying this eliminates the need to wait for the printer to warm up.

The Acuity LED 40 Series utilizes a new LED ink by Fujifilm, Uvijet KL, and is available with four, six or eight colour channels. Users have the option to add light inks and varnish, and can also upgrade to Fujifilm’s brightest white UV ink, ideal for backlit and fine art applications.

“With a variety of productive print modes, light and white ink options and an LED curing system demonstrating excellent environmental benefits with significant cost benefits to users, the new Acuity LED 40 Series delivers superior print quality,” said Ramona Serafino, Associate Product Marketing Manager, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “This new series of UV flatbed printers will appeal to print service providers with a desire to output on substrates such as canvas, wood, tile, glass and heat-sensitive films.”
