Agfa Graphics has launched the Ardeco wide-format printer at FESPA 2013, its state of the art, high-end printing solution for soft signage applications.
The printer is a precision engineered solution that combines advanced sublimation capabilities with a highly accurate textile transport system. It comes in a choice of print head configurations, and features an inline cold-knife cutting system.
This fully-integrated digital textile solution is designed for volume production of all soft signage output including backlit displays, flags and general displays that benefit from being printed onto polyester based fabrics up to a maximum print width of 3.2m. Ardeco prints rich vibrant solid colours, gradients of impeccable quality and high detail rendered images utilizing high quality disperse inks.
With Ardeco’s calendering capability built in, this results in an end-to-end system that doesn’t require any additional fixation or finishing option. In addition, the machine’s ink through feature means that highly absorbent and open-weave fabrics such as meshes can be printed without any damage that can be caused by ink splash back.
