The new Acuity LED 1600R is the latest addition to Fujifilm’s Acuity Series, which the company describes as a flexible, lower cost alternative to the Acuity LED 1600 II hybrid press.

Featuring Q-Class printheads from Fujifilm Dimatix, the Acuity LED 1600R is a 64-inch dedicated roll-to-roll press, offering four colour channels with the option of a modular upgrade in the field up to seven colours. The company says the system offers instant start-up, long-life LED UV lamps, no ozone or VOC emissions and only one consumable, the ink, as well as productivity of up to 355 square feet per hour. It features a high density mode capable of handling heat-sensitive roll media, making it suitable for backlit and window applications, explains Fujifilm.

Along with the new press is the new Uvijet RL ink range, which is available in CMYK and CMYK plus light cyan and light magenta; along with a modular upgrade option to include white. Picoliter drop sizes range from 10 to 30, allowing for “smooth tonal ranges, fine text, and solid colours,” says Fujifilm.
