Fujifilm to Debut Uvistar at SGIA
November 3, 2015 By PrintAction Staff
Fujifilm will make the worldwide premier of its new Uvistar Hybrid 320 UV press at the upcoming SGIA Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, running from November 4 to 6.
The Uvistar Hybrid 320 is a 3.2-metre, combination flatbed and roll printer, capable of producing output at speeds of up to 2,100 square feet per hour. The inkjet system uess Fujifilm Dimatix Q-Class print heads and Fujifilm Uvijet inks to produce full grey scale. The press is available in an eight channel configuration delivering CMYK, Lc, Lm, Lk and Orange inks. A nine channel configuration is available that adds White ink.
The Versa-Drop technology of the Dimatix Q-Class print heads allow the press to image in grey scale with droplet sizes ranging from 10 to 30 picoliters. The Uvistar Hybrid 320 also leverages what Fujfilm describes as a patented tri-lobal belt and six-zone vacuum system to handle roll or rigid substrates.
Additionally, Fujifilm explains a dancer bar with spreaders keeps difficult roll media from wrinkling before it enters the print area. Rear pinch rollers engage as rigid material transitions from the print area on to the exit tables. The Uvistar Hybrid 320 also features continuous board capability that increases productivity when feeding multiple sheets of the same stock during production.
“The Uvistar Hybrid 320 redefines thinking about the capabilities of a combination flatbed and roll printer,” says Becky McConnell, Product Marketing Manager, Fujifilm North America, Graphic Systems Division. “The tri-lobal belt and zoned vacuum system really minimize the potential for media to skew which is an inherent problem with most hybrid printers.”
