FUJIFILM TO RELEASE NEW ROLL-TO-ROLL WIDE FORMAT PRESS

 

Hanover Park, Ill., May 8, 2018 The new Acuity LED 1600R is the latest addition to Fujifilm’s popular Acuity Series, offering customers a flexible, lower cost alternative to the successful Acuity LED 1600 II hybrid press that recently achieved its 1,000th global install.

 

Featuring Q-Class printheads from FUJIFILM Dimatix, the Acuity LED 1600R is a 64 inch dedicated roll-to-roll press, offering four color channels, with the option of a modular upgrade in the field up to seven colors. It features a high density mode capable of handling heat-sensitive roll media while printing stunning, vibrant displays – making it suitable for backlit and window applications. Like the Acuity LED 1600 II, it offers excellent productivity of up to 355 square feet per hour, and will be available for shipment in June.

“The new Acuity LED 1600R is a great investment opportunity for print service providers looking to produce high quality, large format graphic displays,” said Kaz Kudo, associate marketing manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “This dedicated roll-to-roll press will be exhibited this fall in the Fujifilm booth at SGIA Expo 2018 in Las Vegas.”

Producing low levels of heat and requiring lower ink volumes and less power than similar machines on the market, the newest member of the Acuity Series has instant start-up, long-life LED UV lamps, no ozone or VOC emissions and only one consumable – the ink.

Along with the new press is the new Uvijet RL ink range, which is available in CMYK and CMYK plus light Cyan and light Magenta; along with a modular upgrade option to include White. Picoliter drop sizes range from 10 to 30, allowing for smooth tonal ranges, fine text, and solid colors. Designed for flexible media, Uvijet RL is manufactured by FUJIFILM Specialty Ink Systems, and combined with the Acuity LED 1600R’s patented LED curing system and FUJIFILM Dimatix printheads, it delivers near-photographic print quality at an impressive speed.
