Ipex debut for Agfa Jeti press

The 2.4×1.2m flatbed machine uses the latest Ricoh printheads, which can work in binary and greyscale mode. In highest-quality mode it produces 36sqm/hr, while in express mode it can produce 110sqm/hr.

The wide-format press is the first Jeti to be launched since Agfa acquired Gandi Innovations at the end of last year.

The Jeti has filled a gap in Agfa’s product range between the entry level Anapurna flatbeds and the high-end M-Press Tiger.

Pricing for the Jeti 1224UV HDC, including RIP and 12-month warranty, is €225,000 (A$345,000).

Agfa adapted the UV ink technology developed for the M-Press to develop the Anuvia inks for the 1224, which offer a wide colour gamut, but also feature frugal ink consumption to keep costs down.

“The market has welcomed the power of a big company like Agfa behind the Jeti brand,” said Agfa wide-format inkjet director Willy van Dromme. “We will be introducing a series of new Jeti products, of which the 1224 is just the first.”
