                   Fespa focus: Fujifilm Acuity Ultra

Fujifilm will use its booth at Fespa Global Print Expo next month in Munich to showcase the Acuity Ultra, its superwide format printer targeted at the high end indoor graphics and outdoor signage markets.

The company says this latest addition to the Fujifilm Acuity range is unlike anything currently available on the market. According to Fujifilm it is a high productivity, UV superwide format printer offering almost photographic levels of quality at greater speeds, lower cost in use and better return on investment than any other existing machine.

The Acuity Ultra is available in 5 metre and 3.2 metre models with eight colour channels. It uses a new, high quality, low film weight Uvijet GS ink which is Greenguard and AgBB approved. This ink has been specifically designed to deliver the highest quality and is fully emission-compliant for interior graphic display work.

With a 3.5pl drop size ensuring quality, the Acuity Ultra is aimed at the high end indoor display market, especially for brands focusing on the highest possible quality.

Operating with conventional UV technology, Fujifilm says it runs at higher speeds than LED competitors, but as the vacuum table is efficiently water cooled, it does not build up excessive heat on the print plate, meaning no shrinkage and allowing the use of heat sensitive substrates.

Linear motors also ensure smooth edge-to-edge printing with no vibrations at the end of the run. With a throughput of up to 236sqm per hour, the machine is capable of printing on three rolls simultaneously, as well as printing superwide format graphics up to five metres in width.

Fujifilm will be on stand G15 in Hall A5 at Fespa, 14-17 May.
