Agfa releases new Anapurna H1650i LED

Agfa has launched a new budget wide format printer, the Anapurna H1650i LED, at the C!Print show in France.

This Agfa Anapurna H1650i LED is a 1.6m wide entry-level wide format printer.

It’s a smaller 1.6m wide version of the Anapurna H2050i LED printer. As with the bigger model, it’s a hybrid printer that prints to both rigid and flexible media. It uses a reinforced belt drive and shuttle beam and has six 12-picoliter printheads.

Philip Van der Auwera, Product Manager at Agfa Graphics, said: “Although smaller, it is equipped with features normally reserved for higher-end printers, such as automatic head height measurement, crash prevention and an anti-static bar, thus offering the very best at a reasonable price. Of course, the Anapurna H1650i LED is driven by Asanti as well, which adds to the resulting high-quality and consistent prints.”

It uses air-cooled UV LED lights to cure the inks, which means that it can handle thin and heat-sensitive materials. The inks are Agfa’s own and cure to a thin ink layer technology.
