Agfa’s Jeti Mira is a six colour (white colour standard) system with highly-pigmented UV inks and two rows of fast-firing Ricoh inkjet print heads. The system’s UV LED curing technology offers minimal heat output for added print applications, high productivity, significant power savings and consistent output for increased ROI.
The Jeti Mira 2732 HS LM LED printing system has been named as the winner of the 2019 Product of the Year award by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) in the UV/Latex Flatbed category.
The Jeti Mira features a moving-gantry flatbed designed to offer optimal flexibility. The Jeti Mira is 2.69m wide (8.82 feet wide), features print and prepare functionality, a dockable roll-to-roll option, two table versions, and prints at speeds up to 248sqm/hr (2669 square feet/h).
‘The 2019 SGIA Product of the Year competition showcases the best of the best. Both the judges and the objective scoring gave Agfa a convincing win,’ said Ray Weiss, director of digital print programs, Specialty Graphic Imaging Association.
‘Our specially-formulated UV LED inks are ideal for heat-sensitive substrates while at the same time reducing energy consumption, increasing productivity and ultimately yielding a higher ROI in the long run. Agfa-made UV inks also boast a wide colour gamut and high colour vibrancy in both indoor and outdoor applications, while our Asanti colour management optimisation ensures low ink consumption,’ said Deborah Hutcheson, Agfa, director of marketing. ‘When integrated with PrintSphere, our cloud-based service for production automation, users can benefit from an automated workflow and make exchanging data with customers, colleagues, freelancers, other departments and other Agfa solutions easier and more efficient.’
