In a South African first, Clear Solutions launched the Asbru Saga 1600 at the Sign Africa RoadShow in Cape Town. The ready-to-go large format printer package, includes a professional RIP and design editor Photo-Print DX from SAi, as well as media take-up and inks.
The printer has been designed for high efficiency production and ease of use to cover all indoor and outdoor applications with minimum maintenance. Printing width is 210-1610mm and the printing resolution is 1440dpi.
PhotoPrint imports all popular file formats like Adobe Ilustrator, PDF’s and JPEG’s. The RIP supports six different print modes from banners to high quality printing.
The printer is equipped with a DX5 print head, running double CMYK mode, using a unique and efficient ‘exclusion’ algorithm and seven variable droplet sizes. This combination allows the printer to produce flawless, high quality printouts on a variety of media.
Asbru’s unique Ink Trap prolongs the life span of print heads by preventing clogged nozzles due to inefficient cleaning, caused by pigment deposits in the ink pump tubes.
