This year’s ISA International Sign Expo 2007 in Las Vegas will see the demonstration of the new flatbed, which will be available in Australia from Fujifilm Sericol.

Aimed at the mid-range market, the Spyder 320-8 was developed to provide printers with a wider choice of ink colours. Capable of printing eight colours, the Spyder’s eight ink modules each consist of four Spectra inkjet heads. Initially, the printer will be available with the four process colour inks CMYK, along with light cyan, light magenta and two units of white. This new model has the trademark Spyder footprint, moving print carriage and a full-size 126-inch by 63-inch static vacuum bed with pin registration, sharp image resolution and crisp text. Capable of printing at up to 860 sqft/hr with a production performance of 699 sqft/hr, the Spyder 320-8 is said to provide users with “even more flexibility.”

Along with the Inca Spyder, Inca Digital and Fujifilm Sericol will also be using the Sign Expo as a chance to showcase the Inca Columbia Turbo, which was first launched in 2004. Bill Baxter, Managing Director said that though it was still early days, he expected the launch of the Spyder to be well received.

“This new version has been developed very much in response to the market’s increasing requirement for colour flexibility and we expect that it will quickly become a standard offering and the Inca ‘workhorse’,” he said. “The 8-colour Inca Spyder 320 is a natural evolution of the range. It provides users with a very flexible machine with the ability to use 8 colours with ease. A lot of existing 6-colour Inca users are looking forward to this
