The Fujifilm Acuity Ultra is available in 5 metre and 3.2 metre models with eight colour channels.
It uses a new, high quality, low film weight Uvijet GS ink, which is GREENGUARD and AgBB approved. This ink has been specifically designed to deliver the highest quality and is fully emission-compliant for interior graphic display work.
With a 3.5pl drop size ensuring incredible quality, the Acuity Ultra is ideal for the high end indoor display market, especially for brands focussing on the highest possible quality. Operating with conventional UV technology, it runs at much higher speeds than LED competitors, but as the vacuum table is efficiently water cooled, it does not build up excessive heat on the print plate, meaning no shrinkage and allowing the use of heat sensitive substrates. Linear motors also ensure smooth edge-to-edge printing with no vibrations at the end of the run.
With a throughput of up to 236sqm per hour, the machine is capable of printing on three rolls simultaneously, as well as printing super-wide format graphics up to five metres in width.
Fujifilm will use its stand at FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 to showcase the Acuity Ultra. Upcoming FESPA events include FESPA Africa, the region’s largest, focused exhibition for wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing, which is co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print – the region’s leading events for the signage and printing industry – as well as Africa LED and Modern Marketing. The event is taking place from 11-13 September 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
