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 extends the print width up to 3.2m, and further increasing increases print speeds.
With a top speed of 110sqm per hour (1184 square feet per hour) using CMYK, 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 four or eight ink channels (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan, light magenta, white and clear) as standard 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, to be added later in the year, means high gloss spot varnish effects can also be created, enabling sign and display printers to produce real added value print.
The company will also showcase the Uvistar II. With throughput speeds of over 350sqm/hr (5m model), Uvistar printers are ideal for the production of a variety of poster displays, point-of-purchase materials, billboards, vehicle graphics and backlit signage up to five metres wide. The Uvistar II series includes both 3.5m and 5m media width machines designed for high-volume super-wide industrial printing with a choice of 16 or 32 print head configuration.
