Inca Digital and Fujifilm have launched the Inca Onset R40i UV flatbed printer. Fujifilm demonstrated the new printer for the first time worldwide at FESPA Digital 2014, which took place from 21-23 May in Munich.

The Onset R40i is the latest addition to the Inca Onset series and, using Fujifilm Spectra Dimatix printheads, delivers a 14 picolitre (pL) drop size and genuine 400 sqm/hour productivity. Based on the dynamic Onset Scaleable Architecture platform, the new Onset is available with a variety of colour options (CMYK, Lm, Lc and white), with customers being able to modify their machine from a four-colour configuration to five, six or seven colours (up to eight ink channels – two for white ink).

As their business grows, customers can adapt other elements of the printer, such as the UV curing lamps, automation, speed modes, electronics and software, to suit their evolving production needs. A maximum output resolution of 1200dpi can be produced on media up to 3.14m x 1.6m (123.6 inches x 63 inches) and up to 5cm (2″) thick at the rate of up to 80 full-bed sheets per hour.

A choice of uni-directional, bi-directional and super high-quality print modes can be selected depending on the specific job requirements. This new Onset also supports Inca’s Print Run Controller software for companies requiring variable data printing capability.

Heather Kendle, Inca Digital’s Director of Marketing and Product Management said, ‘The new Inca Onset R40i delivers the ideal combination of speed and quality for companies producing a mix of fast turnaround retail graphics for distance viewing but also wishing to produce high-quality graphics for short-distance viewing. The beauty of the Onset Series, which now features a choice of 12 different models and three different handling systems, is that print companies can not only pick exactly the right Onset with the right combination of productivity, quality and ink options for their business, but also evolve their machine to meet their changing needs whenever they wish.’
