Fujifilm will release a new range of flatbed UV printers, the Acuity Select 20 series during Fespa starting on March 8. The new series will replace the popular Acuity Advance series, which launched in 2008. Fujifilm says customers can expect improvements in image quality, flatbed architecture and productivity with reduced ink consumption. Fujifilm Australia graphic systems general manager Lindsay Barnes says the improvements to the new series have been made following customer feedback. Barnes says, “We are all very excited with the new Acuity Select range of flatbed UVs. As always, every printer is backed by Fujifilm Australia’s extensive service network, with factory-trained technicians.”
Launched: Fujifilm’s new Acuity Select 20 series
The Acuity Select 20 series will come with two new print modes, Production Fast and Quality Matte in addition to the 11 existing modes. Fujifilm has also introduced a six-zone vacuum system with higher flow vacuum pumps, and an auto or manual-control pneumatic pin registration with five retractable pins. It will make four, six and eight-channel models available with additional cyan and light magenta inks which Fujifilm promises to improve highlight and quartertones in images. White and clear ink options are also available. The new series will come with a CMYK squared high productivity version with a new masking system, which Fujifilm promises will deliver improved smoothness in production mode. Fujifilm will make the new Acuity Select 20 range available in Australia after the launch at Fespa, which takes place from March 8 to 11 in Amsterdam.
