Inca Digital announces new Onset R40i

Inca Digital has developed another iteration of its Onset wide format machines, the Onset R40i, to be demonstrated for the first time at Fespa. It appears to be a mid-range model, fitting between the faster S-series, and the higher image quality Q-series, but mainly seems to be an attempt to strike a better balance between image quality and speed being up to 100sqm/hr faster than the Q-series.

As with the other Onsets, it will be distributed by Fujifilm, and uses UV-curabel inks and Spectra printheads from Fujifilm. Maximum resolution is 1200 dpi with a 14 picolitre drop size. It takes media up to 3.14m x 1.6m and can produce up to 400 sqm/hour, or around 80 beds/hour (as against 305 sqm/hr for the Q-series and 560 sqm/hr for the S-series).

There’s a choice of configurations from a 4-colour configuration to 5, 6 or 7 colours (up to 8 ink channels – 2 for white ink).  It’s based on the Onset Scaleable Architecture platform, which means that it is partly modular in design so that customers can change the ink configuration and adapt other elements of the printer, such as the UV curing lamps, automation, speed modes, electronics and software, to suit their evolving production needs.

There’s a choice of manual, semi or three-quarter automation for media loading.
