Agfa Graphics, during last week’s ISA Sign Expo in Las Vegas, introduced two new large-format inkjet systems in the Jeti Tauro and Jeti Mira, as well as new features in Asanti 2.0 software and new UV inks. The company also introduced the new Anapurna M3200i RTR White and new automation options for Anapurna M2500i.
The 98-inch (2 1/2-metre) Jeti Tauro is positioned as a high-end hybrid UV inkjet press – for both rigid and flexible material – with 32 print heads in a 6-colour system, in addition to an optional white or primer. Jeti Tauro offers optional semi or full media load/unload automation.
Jeti Mira is a 6-colour and white UV inkjet flatbed printer with optional varnish or primer. Also aimed at high-end production, it features moving gantry architecture and six vacuum zones with automatic and independent control of the front and back vacuum zones. Jeti Mira is available in two table versions: 2.7 x 1.6 metres and 2.7 x 3.2 metres (8' 9" x 5'2"/10'5"). Agfa explains its Print and Prepare feature makes the Jeti Mira unique for printing on both small objects or larger board sizes.
Today, Agfa Graphics’ UV-curable inks deliver large-gamut high-quality prints with the lowest ink consumption per square meter in the industry, thanks to the ‘thin ink layer technology’ in both the Jeti Tauro and the Jeti Mira.
The new UV inks, leveraging what Agfa refers to as thin ink layer technology, for Jeti and Anapurna systems target flexible applications, special substrates and outdoor signage printed on polypropylene or styrene based media types and provide image longevity.
Asanti v2.0 also features new options for printing white on transparent substrates. The software provides for file handling, colour management and preflighting, while also working with the Asanti StoreFront Web-to-print solution.
