FESPA Munich: Agfa announces new inks for Onset and Avinci printers 

Agfa has developed new inks for its Onset and Avinci inkjet printers offering high quality and performance while minimising ink usage. The company is showcasing these products at FESPA in Munich.

The company says the new Onset 560 ink, developed in just six months, offers excellent print quality and a wide colour gamut combined with low ink consumption, resulting in potential double-digit savings compared to other inks. 

According to Agfa, the savings are typically at least 20 per cent due to its patented Thin Ink Layer technology. It uses a unique dispersion method of pigments with exceptional colour strength. 

The Onset 560 ink has recently obtained the Greenguard Gold certification, which assures its compliance with chemical emission limits and makes it suitable for use in sensitive indoor environments like schools and healthcare facilities.

The new Avinci 110 ink, developed for the Avinci CX3200 dye-sub textile printer, obtained the Oeko-Tex Eco passport, an independent certification system for chemicals, colourants, and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry. The passport is the confirmation that the ink is free from any harmful substance to decorate fabrics safe for humans and the environment.

Whereas the introduction of the Onset 560 ink set extends Agfa’s range of UV ink family, the Avinci 110 ink set is an addition to Agfa’s water-based ink family. 

Both inks are suitable for a particular printing system and range of applications, resulting in consistent and superior printing performance.

Agfa business manager for industrial inks Marc Graindourze said, “We demonstrate our expertise in developing and producing inkjet ink through our ability to consistently deliver high-quality prints. This is made possible by our inks’ exceptional ink shelf life, consistent batch-to-batch performance, reliable jetting, and vibrant colour strength.

“All of that is, in turn, achieved through application-oriented R&D as well as rigorous testing and quality control measures that are implemented throughout the ink manufacturing process. 

“Our relentless commitment to research and development, combined with our unwavering dedication to deliver exceptional image quality, consistency, and sustainability, has earned us the trust of printers and end-users around the world.”
