Agfa met nieuwe Anapurna LED wide formaat printer op SGIA
Agfa Graphics introduceert op de SGIA, 14 tot 16 september in Las Vegas, een nieuwe 3,2 meter brede LED UV droging printer. De Anapurna H3200i, leverbaar in een vellen of roll-to-roll versie, combineert productiviteit met een perfecte beeldkwaliteit.

Agfa Graphics introduces new Anapurna H3200i LED wide-format printer at SGIA
The new 3.2 m wide Anapurna H3200i LED completes the family of hybrid Anapurnas (2.05m, 2.5m and 3.2m wide) from Agfa Graphics. At SGIA the Anapurna H3200i LED, Anapurna FB2540i LED (flatbed) and Anapurna RTR3200i LED (roll-to-roll) will be on display next to the flatbed Jeti Mira with dockable roll-to-roll and high-end hybrid Jeti Tauro in a ¾ automation set-up.
On its family of Anapurna i printers, Agfa Graphics recently introduced state-of-the-art, air-cooled LED UV curing as an alternative to the current mercury lamp curing technology—enabling printers to print on a broader range of media, save energy, increase system up-time and reduce operational expenses.
On display at the 2016 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, September 14–16) will be the Anapurna H3200i LED system, a brand new 3.2 m hybrid solution for printing both rigid and flexible media.
The Anapurna H3200i LED offers both high throughput and high print quality. The white ink function is built in. It includes pre-, post-, spot and even sandwich white. The Anapurna H3200i LED is driven by Asanti 3.0, the workflow dedicated to wide-format printing solutions.
LED UV curing on the Anapurna i-series
The new Anapurna i-series inkjet systems are equipped with powerful, air-cooled 16 Watt/cm² LED UV lamps. The dedicated ink sets from Agfa Graphics perfectly match the specific UV frequencies of the curing LEDs. Thanks to their reduced heat emission, they can print on heat-sensitive substrates such as thin-layer styrene, self-adhesive sheets or stretched ceiling materials made of PVC fabric. LED UV curing technology also offers interesting operational and environmental benefits.
Unlike for mercury lamps, the lifetime of the LED alternative is in line with the economical lifetime of a printer of typically five years. LED lamps can be switched on/off instantaneously, without degradation of intensity. As a consequence, both the cost and the downtime for changing lamps are obviated, while there is no issue in disposing them either. In addition, the power output remains consistent over the LEDs’ operating life, which is an important element in maintaining good physical characteristics of the print with regards to adhesion for example. Finally, LED lamps have no warm-up, nor cool-down time, so power consumption is drastically lower during printing and reduced to an absolute minimum when paused, which results in a lower energy bill.
The Anapurna H3200i LED, the Anapurna RTR 3200i LED, and the Anapurna FB2540i LED will be on display at 2016 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, September 14–16).
