The Acuity LED 3200R roll printer builds on the success of the versatile Acuity LED 1600 II UV inkjet printer, launched in 2015, and the original Acuity LED 1600, introduced in 2012, both of which have gained wide market acceptance thanks to their ultra-high quality, application flexibility and ability to print on a wide range of roll and rigid media. The Acuity LED 3200R is set to build on the success of this range by extending the print width up to 3.2m, and further increasing print speeds.
With a top speed of 110sqm per hour (1184 square feet per hour), the Acuity LED 3200R satisfies customer demands for faster job turnarounds and lower output costs, while retaining the outstanding print quality that has come to be expected of the Acuity LED 1600 series. The printer features eight ink channels as standard (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan, light magenta, white and clear) and uses Fujifilm’s renowned Uvijet ink range to reproduce an incredibly wide range of colours with smooth gradations, while ensuring superb ink adhesion to a wide range of substrates.
The Acuity LED 3200R produces consistent vibrant colours with a high degree of opacity for optimal results in day/night applications. Instant-curing UV inks enable multi-layer printing that reproduces high-quality designs with two-layer or three-layer printing. The addition of a clear ink means high gloss spot varnish effects can also be created, enabling sign and display printers to produce real added value print.
The Acuity LED 3200R will take media weighing up to 100 kg (220 lbs) and can handle the printing of two rolls simultaneously, boosting productivity as two different images can be printed at the same time.
Mike Battersby, Marketing Manager at Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems, said, ‘Our Acuity LED 1600 series has proved hugely successful due to its unique combination of quality, speed and versatility. We are delighted to be able to announce an additional model in the range, the Acuity LED 3200R, as it means we can provide an even wider choice of options to our customers.’
