Agfa Graphics expanded its wide-format hybrid Anapurna LED series for sign and display printers with a new 1.65-metre-wide hybrid printer – the Anapurna H1650i LED. This smaller hybrid printer was designed as an accessible and cost-effective production tool that combines the latest LED technology with Agfa Graphics’ consistent, repeatable high-quality output. This latest addition to the Anapurna LED series is a smaller version of the popular and robust Anapurna H2050i LED printer, with which it shares several features and benefits. The new H1650i prints on rigid and flexible media by means of LED curing, resulting in a lower cost of ownership. It combines this with Agfa’s award-winning imaging quality, ink-saving thin-ink-layer technology and white-ink printing – yet requires a smaller financial investment than other Anapurna engines, said the OEM.
“The hybrid Anapurna H1650i LED printer was designed as a robust, qualitative and versatile entry-level option for wide-format print service providers,” explains Philip Van der Auwera, Product Manager at Agfa Graphics. “Although smaller, it’s 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 facilitates the resulting high-quality and consistent prints.”
