Fujifilm's Acuity 15 can produce the same quality as the established Select 20 and 30 ranges
The Acuity 15 UV flatbed printer is positioned as a low cost entry-level alternative to Fujifilm's Acuity Select 20 and 30 series.
Designed for light production, the Acuity 15 is said to offer near-photographic image quality and print speeds of up to 23 sqm/hr. It has a platform similar to the Acuity 20 and 30 series that can print on rigid and flexible media up to 50.8mm thick. The vacuum system also reduces the need for masking, making it easy to load the media onto the bed.
As an entry-level model, the cost and specifications of the Acuity 15 are suitable for low volume and light production requirements at commercial, graphic display and industrial printers. It is also aimed at larger print service providers that need to offer proofs or show sample pieces to their customers.
'Fujifilm is delighted to bring the benefits of its Acuity flatbed range to a much broader range of print service providers' said Tudor Morgan, segment manager of sign & display at Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe. 'Able to produce the same quality as our Select 20 and 30 ranges, the Acuity 15 provides a great investment opportunity for any print business looking to diversify. Whether for a full print job, a proof or even as a way to get into printing thermoformed objects, it gives small and large print businesses alike the chance to offer their customers stunning, rigid and flexible prints on almost any surface.'
The Acuity 15 is available now across the EMEA region with the Uvijet KN multipurpose ink system or Uvijet KV thermoforming ink system, with both Uvijet ink ranges enabling CMYK and white ink printing.
