Agfa Graphics, during the ISA Sign Expo 2016 running from April 21 to 23, in Orlando, Florida, plans to demonstrate new automation and feature enhancements for its Canadian-made Jeti Tauro and Jeti Mira UV inkjet printing systems.

The Jeti Mira UV inkjet printer will be demonstrated with a dockable RTR system that attaches to the front of the flatbed table, Agfa explains, reducing the distance the media needs to travel (less media waste) and further decreasing the chance of skewing while also improving accuracy.

The 105.9-inch (2.69 metre) Jeti Mira flatbed printer features a moving gantry for industrial workloads and produces work in six colours plus white, with optional primer or varnish. With six vacuum zones, Agfa explains the Jeti Mira’s Print & Prepare mode reduces downtime and increases productivity by allowing operators to load one side of the table as the other side is printing.

The hybrid Jeti Tauro printer, designed for high-end sign and display printers, features media tables, an integrated RTR system and can be upgraded with a semi-automated board feeder and stacker. The system’s Automatic Board Feeder, explains Agfa, can drive productivity gains in some cases by more than 30 percent.

The 98-inch (2.5 metre) Jeti Tauro features six colours plus white and/or primer option and is designed for 24/7 printing on both rigid and flexible material with speeds up to 2,960 square feet per hour. It also features a vacuum-belt drive for motion control that, explains Agfa, results in high dot accuracy.
