Fujifilm has announced a new UV roll-fed printer, the Acuity LED 3200R, a 3.2m device with LED curing.
As such, it’s essentially a wider version of the existing Acuity LED 1600 II, which has proven reasonably successful due to the high quality images it can produce and the range of different effects onto a fair variety of substrates.
In total there are eight ink channels with cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan, light magenta, white and clear inks.
Bizarrely, Fujifilm quotes a top speed of 110 sqm/hr, when printing with the lowest quality CMYK mode on banner substrates, though it’s really not cost-effective to buy one of these printers for that type of work. It’s capable of three-layer printing and is far better suited to window graphics and backlits.
It will take media weighing up to 100 KG and can print to two rolls side by side. It should be available later this summer.
