Agfa updates Anapurna with M2050i

Agfa has redesigned its Anapurna M2050 hybrid UV flatbed with a new 2050i model. Agfa claims to have increased its productivity by up to 75 percent, largely due to fitting new printheads. Agfa has also added a new belt drive system and added dual board or borderless printing. In addition, the electromechanical redesign of the system has made it more robust still, fit for sustained higher workloads.

The 2050i prints up to 2m wide and uses fold-out tables for boards up to 3.2m long. It has eight ink channels with CMYK plus light cyan, light magenta and white ink, using Agfa’s own high density inks. It comes with the Asanti workflow, which includes the Asanti StoreFront web to print system.

It will be shown at the Fespa show in Munich this month and should be available by Q3 later this year.
