Agfa recently took to its Studio 5D10 virtual event to unveil a new addition to its Jeti Tauro large-format inkjet printer family.
The company has taken the wraps off its H3300 S LED large-format printer to extend its high-end Jeti Tauro printer range with an upgradable model.
According to the company, the latest Jeti Tauro press is a favourably priced entry model that will enable a wider range of printing companies to benefit from one of Agfa’s flagship large-format printers.
Agfa introduced the Jeti Tauro H3300 in 2018, with the heavy-duty hybrid printer combining image quality, productivity and low ink consumption to deliver rigid and flexible prints of up to 3.3m wide at speeds up to 453 m² per hour.
The original version is available in a four-colour and a six-colour version, while the latest S version in available in a six-colour option only.
This new hybrid printer comes with optional white and primer, and boasts speeds of 302 m² per hour, which can be upgraded to the higher speed of its bigger brother.
It also shares the latter’s short start-up times and quick and easy maintenance, while also featuring the same automation options. That means it will be available in six possible configurations. Four of these are dedicated to board printing, ranging from manual to fully automatic.
The 3/4 automated version makes use of an automatic board feeder, which is particularly convenient for shorter runs and a fast, efficient changeover between various media sizes or types.
The two remaining configurations focus on roll printing, with a master roll-to-roll and a light roll-to-roll model.
Agfa product manager of sign and display Reinhilde Alaert said the Jeti Tauro H3300 S LED offers an attractive growth path for sign and display printing companies.
“We are committed to inkjet printing and we aim to support our customers by offering them complete and perfectly matched solutions that make their operations more efficient and productive,” Alaert said.
“The new Jeti Tauro H3300 S LED is built on the same platform as its bigger brother and marks another step in the expansion of our high-end large-format inkjet printer family. It covers a wide range of media sizes and types – for boards and sheets as well as rolls – and supports all print jobs with fitting automation options that ultimately enable operators to tend to multiple jobs and printing engines simultaneously.
“The printer’s upgradability – to the speed of the existing Jeti Tauro H3300 model – makes it an ideal starting point for print service providers’ further growth in sign and display printing.”
As is the case with all Jeti Tauro models, the Jeti Tauro H3300 S LED is powered by Agfa’s Asanti workflow software, which controls and automates the entire printing process from prepress to finishing.
