FESPA Munich: Fujifilm launches Acuity Prime Hybrid printer

Fujifilm has showcased the new Acuity Prime Hybrid printer at FESPA 2023 for the first time. Modelled on the highly successful Acuity Prime, the new machine brings additional versatility due to its ability to handle rigid and flexible media.

The new printer is the latest in Fujifilm’s Acuity range – designed from the ground up as part of its new “blueprint for wide format”. All machines in the range were purposely developed to strike the perfect balance between output speed, print quality and price while incorporating intuitive design features for the operator.

When used as a flatbed machine, the Acuity Prime Hybrid can print on substrates up to 2m in width. It can simultaneously print on up to four pieces of rigid media and features registration pins for exact edge-to-edge printing. 

The Acuity Prime Hybrid can produce a print at production quality starting from 92 square meters per hour. It also features front and back handling tables to support all media types while facilitating easy media positioning.

The roll-fed configuration can be loaded with two rolls each up to 0.9m wide, and its GreenGuard Gold certified ink makes it suitable for wallpaper production – as well as an extensive range of other applications.

The Acuity Prime Hybrid is set to meet the needs of print service providers who use a wide range of media, including Dibond, foamboard, acrylic, polyester and more.

The machine is available with four colours (CMYK) as standard and uses the same highly pigmented inks that have been used so successfully in the

A beta model will be installed in the UK in June, with commercial availability scheduled for the end of this year.

Fujifilm wide format inkjet systems director David Burton said, “We have listened to our customers, and we recognise that high functionality and versatility is in demand. In response to our customers and, building on the success of the Acuity Prime flatbed series, we developed the Acuity Prime Hybrid – a cost-effective and robust printer that will maximise productivity across a wide variety of applications.

“We’re delighted to showcase its capabilities at FESPA 2023, and we look forward to seeing how it will positively impact our customers’ businesses.”
