Fujifilm announced the launch of Inca Digital’s Onset R50i wide-format, flatbed UV printer. This printer features fine-drop 14 picolitre Fujifilm Dimatix Spectra printheads and an eight-channel, dual CMYK configuration to deliver superb quality and 600sqm/hr productivity with automation.
Positioned between the high-quality 400sqm/hr, six-colour Onset R40i and the high-speed 720sqm/hr Onset S50i, the new Onset R50i meets the needs of firms who produce a mix of graphics for long and short-distance viewing and who want the best quality and throughput.
‘This new Onset ticks all the boxes for many companies because it extends the range of jobs they can handle,’ said Heather Kendle, Inca Digital’s Director of Marketing and Product Management. ‘Plus, its ability to produce both sharp text and smooth block colours with all the added advantages of digital print flexibility will appeal to companies with XXL offset presses. Early reaction from the market has been extremely positive with installations already underway.’
The full-width array flatbed Onset R50i is supplied with a choice of Caldera or Colorgate RIPs and prints an apparent resolution of 1000dpi onto substrate sizes up to 3.14 x 1.6m (123.6in x 63in) and 50mm (2in) thick at a rate of up to 120 full-bed sheets an hour. Depending upon specific job requirements, users can choose between uni-directional, bi-directional and high-quality or high-productivity modes. Designed for easy set-up with maximum reliability and operational uptime, the Onset R50i is equipped with a 15-zone vacuum table, a UV sensor system and mechanical substrate height detectors.
Based on the flexible Onset Scaleable Architecture platform, the Inca Onset Series now features a choice of 19 different models and three different handling systems to allow companies to select the best printer with the best combination of productivity, quality and ink options for their business.
