Fujifilm Acuity Ultra: Launch event at Cactus Open House November 29

Printers will be able to see the new Fuijfilm Acuity Ultra in action the week after next, as the supplier and the SGIAA host an Open House at first Australian customer Cactus Imaging.

Owned by oOh!Media, Cactus specialises in out of home advertising, commercial print, retail, and events. Visitors will see state of the art roll to roll digital printing, and the CPS workflow system, along with the latest innovations in banner finishing.

The event will be the Australian launch of the new Fujifilm Acuity Ultra large format printer, with all printers invited. Cactus general manager Keith Ferrel says, “We have one of the first in the world, we could not be happier with the quality.”

Ashley Playford, national sales manager Graphic Systems says, “We were delighted when Cactus decided to be the first business in Australia to install the new Acuity Ultra. Cactus has a long pedigree of being first to market with the latest print innovations, and the Acuity Ultra is a great addition to its already impressive print arsenal.

“We are looking forward to showcasing the exceptional print quality the Ultra delivers at the Open House. This is a platform that delivers high quality at high speed.”

The Acuity Ultra comes in 5 metre and 3.2 metre widths, with up to eight colour channels, including white. Ink is a new low film weight Uvijet GS Fujifilm product. Drop size is 3 picolitre, which Fujifilm says delivers the highest quality. It will print at up to 236sqm an hour.

SGIAA president Nigel Davies says, “An Open House of a plant such as Cactus Imaging is seldom available. Cactus is internationally renowned for its innovation, fast turnaround, and quality. This plant is impressive, and anyone involved in the wide format industry should not miss this event.”

The Open House will be held on 28 November at the Cactus Imaging plant in Silverwater NSW, from 5-7pm.

Tickets are available here:

The event is free for SGIAA members and Fujifilm guests, with a small charge for non-members to cover the cost of refreshments.
