Agfa Graphics announced the launch of its dedicated roll-to-roll printer with UV LED curing, rapid results and excellent image quality on a wide variety of flexible media. The engine’s optional white printing features and primer capability can be combined, for a new level of image vivacity, dimension and durability.
The Jeti Ceres RTR 3200 LED system will be on display at C!Print Lyon (Jan. 31- Feb. 2, 2017) and Sign & Print Scandinavia (Feb. 7-9, 2017).
As a dedicated 3.2 m roll-to-roll printer, the Jeti Ceres prioritizes fast results and the robustness required for high-throughput printing. Intended for mid- to high-end applications, Jeti Ceres is capable of printing on diverse single and dual roll media at speeds of up to 186 m²/hr. Its UV LED curing lamps save costs, increase eco-friendliness, broaden the printable media range and eliminate lamp-based downtime.
As a result of its state-of-the-art UV LED curing and Agfa Graphics’ UV LED-cured inks, Jeti Ceres can print on heat-sensitive media such as self-adhesive sheets and PVC without warping or wrinkling them.
Equipped with white ink circulation that extends along the entire ink line, the Jeti Ceres offers the use of white inks to enhance images, especially in backlit and dual-sided applications.
“Agfa Graphics’ ‘thin ink technology’ results in wide-gamut, vibrant images – no matter the substrate,” said Reinhilde Alaert, marketing product manager, Sign & Display High-End. “Our inks’ high pigmentation, along with our deep understanding of the physics of ink jetting, keeps ink consumption low, extremely precise and waste-free.
