Fujifilm’s new Acuity LED wide-format printer at FESPA Digital

Fujifilm LEDWith a number of new product launches still to be announced, the company intends to cement its position as the number one partner for print service providers in the wide format market.

Included on the stand will be the new Acuity LED 1600 II roll printer. Unveiled in the Autumn of 2015, the new Acuity builds on the best features of the popular Acuity LED 1600, delivering the highest levels of productivity and versatility.

The machine, which has a maximum print width of 1,610mm, and a 1,200dpi maximum resolution, also offers simultaneous two-layer printing (white plus clear) and three-layer printing (colour plus white and clear) when combined with Caldera or ColorGate RIP software.

Other new features include an automated jetting adjustment based on the gap between the printhead and media as well as two new vacuum modes to enable the printer to handle a wider variety of substrates, such as thin or low-strength media. 

The Acuity LED 1600 features Fujifilm’s Intelligent Curing Control which adjusts light from the LED lamp unit to manage the curing speed of the ink. The inks themselves are able to cover a wide colour gamut, assisted by the VersaDrop greyscale technology incorporated into the print-heads.White and clear ink heads can also be disabled when not in use to reduce maintenance costs.

Fujifilm says that, because the droplets merge at the nozzle rather than on the substrate, image quality is superior. The inks employed are Uvijet LL LED UV-curable products made by Fujifilm Sericol, tailored specifically for this platform.

Tudor Morgan, Sign & Display Segment Manager at Fujifilm Europe comments: “Not content with the already very high standards of our products, Fujifilm is continually looking to develop and expand its range of wide format systems to meet changing market needs and improve profitability for our customers.”
