Agfa Launches Two Inkjet Systems For Sign And Display Market


Agfa Graphics has announced the new Jeti Mira and Jeti Tauro inkjet systems; new automation and more feature integration in the wide-format Asanti 2.0 workflow and new UV inks designed for specific inkjet print applications requiring flexibilitiy (RTR) for the most challenging of outdoor conditions.

The impressive 2.5m (98 inch) Jeti Tauro is a high-end hybrid UV inkjet press with 32 heads for six colours, and optional white or primer, designed for high productivity printing on both rigid and flexible material.

The Jeti Mira is a versatile six-colour and white UV inkjet flatbed printer with optional varnish or primer. The Jeti Mira system features a moving-gantry architecture with split-vacuum table  for productivity, impressive colours and print quality.

The Jeti Tauro and Jeti Mira are for the higher-end segment of the sign and display market and are geared to high-productivity and high-quality output. The hybrid Jeti Tauro system offers optional semi or full media load/unload automation. Jeti Tauro prints up to 2,5 metre-wide rolls or rigid material completely operated from the Asanti workflow software.

The Jeti Mira is a true flatbed printer, ruggedly built and available in two table versions: 2.7m x 1.6m and 2.7m x 3.2m sizes (8' 9" x 5'2"/10'5"). The moving-gantry architecture is specifically designed to offer optimal flexibility and high-quality output on a variety of different media.

To reduce vacuum masking, the split vacuum table features six vacuum zones with automatic and independent control of the front and back vacuum zones. The ‘Print and Prepare’ feature makes the Jeti Mira unique for printing on both small objects or larger boards sizes.
Dominiek Arnout, Vice President Inkjet, Agfa Graphics said, 'We promised a series of new state-of-the-art products in the course of 2015 and we are happy to deliver. We truly believe the market will embrace these two new systems that make ultimate use of our dedicated ink technology and our tailored sign and display workflow. Our Matched Component Approach guarantees that every component yields the best possible result.'
The new inks 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.

The new Asanti 2.0 wide format workflow software controls the entire process from prepress to production to finishing. Along the way, it simplifies, optimises and automates. As a true production hub, the unique bi-directional communication with the new Jeti Tauro and connection towards Acorta streamlines production even further. Asanti v2.0 also features new options for printing white on transparent substrates.

Asanti’s comprehensive integration of file handling, colour management and preflighting also reduce the risk of mistakes and make the complete system more productive. Asanti is complemented by Asanti StoreFront, Agfa Graphics' web-to-print solution that manages online stores and processes print orders automatically.
The European debut for Jeti Tauro and Jeti Mira is at FESPA 2015 (18-22/5, Cologne DE) where they will also be on display next to the new Anapurna M3200i RTR White and new automation options for Anapurna M2500i.
