Inca Launches Onset S40
Inca Digital Printers yesterday introduced a third model within its Onset line of wide-format, UV-based flatbed inkjet printers. The new Onset S40, distributed in Canada by Fujifilm, reaches a maximum printing speed of 470 square metres per hour (5,059 sqft/hr).
This Onset S40 machine fits between the high-end Onset S70, which runs at a top speed of 750 sqm/hr (8,073 sqft/hr), and the Onset S20, with a top speed of 310 sqm/hr (3,340 sqft/hr). The S40’s top-rated speed is equivalent to producing 94 full-bed sheets (3.14 x 1.6 metres) per hour, with substrates of up to 50 mm (2 inches) thick.
The Onset S40 jets Fujifilm’s UVijet ink through as many as 168 user-replaceable printheads (28 per colour), which allows it to produce 600-dpi resolution in either a 4- or 6-colour machine configuration.
An optional materials handling system from Inca provides the S40 with manual, semi- or three-quarter automation from the same configuration.
