Agfa Graphics won all three Product of the Year Awards in the UV Category at SGIA Expo recently held in Atlanta, including for two systems built in Mississauga, Ont. A total of 141 entries in 38 product categories were submitted for this competition. Prints were judged on overall colour appeal, tonality, image detail, objective colour matching and grayscale colour cast.
The new Anapurna M2540i won in the UV Flatbed ($100-200k) category, while the Canadian-built Jeti Mira won in the UV Flatbed ($200-500k) category and Jeti Tauro won top honours in the UV Hybrid/Flatbed High Volume Production Class category.
“This recognition means a great deal to the entire global Agfa Graphics team,” said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. “The competition validates the hard work and precision behind these inkjet systems.”
The Jeti Tauro is a UV hybrid system positioned for the higher end of the sign and display market with print speeds up to 2960 f2/hour (275 m2/hr). The system is designed to withstand heavy workloads (24/7, multiple shifts) and prints up to 2.5 metre wide on rigid or roll media with six colour plus white or primer options.
The Jeti Mira is also built for heavy industrial workloads. Its print-and-prepare mode on the double bed model allows non-stop printing, allowing PSPs to load the front while the back is printing for added productivity. The Mira has six colour plus white with optional varnish and primer and is available in two bed sizes (8.8 x 5.24 feet or 8.8 x 10.5 feet)
The Anapurna M2540i FB is a six-colour plus white, 100-inch (2.54 metre) UV-curable flatbed inkjet printer which prints at speeds up to 1000 f2/hour (93 m2/hr). It is designed for step-and-repeat work and for printing multiple jobs on different sized media.
