Albion Screen Printing of Gatineau, Quebec, expanded its wide-format-printing capabilities with the recent installation of a new Agfa Titan HS inkjet system.
Founded 40 years ago, Albion, using traditional screen-printing methods and wide-format inkjet systems, produces applications like labels, decals, nameplates, displays, signs, murals and vehicle graphics.
Building on Agfa’s existing Jeti Titan series of UV-curable wide-format printers, the new Titan S and HS machines incorporate the latest generation of Ricoh Gen 5 print heads with 1,280 nozzles. The Jeti Titan S is equipped with one row of print heads, but it is field upgradeable to two rows. The Jeti Titan HS (high-speed), such as the machine purchased by Albion, is equipped with the two rows from the outset.
The ink system on both the Jeti Titan HS and Jeti Titan S is set at six colours plus white (CMYKLcLmWW). Both Jeti Titans feature a 2x3-metre flatbed design and produce a 7-picoliter droplet size, which allows for the production of photorealistic images with fine 4-point text.
