The European Digital Press (EDP) Association has recognised the Onset X Series as the best wide format/hybrid press in the greater than 250sqm per hour category.
Within the Onset X Series, the X3, capable of printing over 900.04sqm (9,688 ft2) per hour, equivalent to 900sqm per hour (180 beds/hour), features three CMYK ink channels plus the choice of white to add even greater capability to print specialty applications, or orange to expand the colour gamut to match a wider range of Pantone colours. The Onset X3 also features Fujifilm Dimatix Q Class 14-picolitre printheads, and Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks for production of exceptional quality on a wide range of substrates. The Onset X3 sits at the pinnacle of productivity, and every Onset X Series press includes a 25-zone vacuum table to eliminate the need for bed-masking, greatly reducing set-up times and optimising productivity.
Incorporating Inca’s pioneering ‘Scalable Architecture’ concept, each Onset X Series press is based on a new common scalable architecture platform that can be upgraded on-site when additional capacity or capability is needed. This provides the flexibility to configure the Onset X printer for the combination of productivity, colour, and quality that best matches a customers’ need today with the ability to upgrade later when production requirements change. With this printer, users of analogue screen printing lines can take the digital route, confident they can print long runs of high-quality print with superb consistency and reliability.
‘The Onset X Series is designed to remove the traditional compromise of quality and productivity and make the choice of printer the easiest decision they have to make,’ said John Mills, CEO, Inca Digital. ‘The X Series combines an easy-to-understand upgrade path with a comprehensive choice of options, so that, whatever stage the business is at, management can configure or re-configure an Onset X printer with the right productivity and colour performance to match their budget and evolving business needs.’
‘It’s truly an honour to be a recipient of the ‘Best of’ award from EDP,’ said Mills. ’It’s a testament to Inca Digital and Fujifilm’s dedicated efforts in technological advancements within our digital industry.’
