Agfa Graphics has announced that a significant range of new inkjet printers will be launched at Fespa Digital in Hamburg 24-27 May 2011. Agfa Graphics will announce a new model of the :M-Press family for industrial high-end digital printing solutions as well a new high productivity :Jeti 5 meter UV roll-to-roll printer next to the :Anapurna M1600 and the introduction of roll-to-roll options for the :Jeti Titan flatbed press.
Sign and display print service providers will be able to see the new :Anapurna and :Jeti engines on the Agfa booth B20 in hall A4, showing image quality that opens up new applications and meets the latest demands of international brand managers, retail groups and agencies.
"Our customers have been asking us for an entry level :M-Press without compromising on the famous :M-Press image quality, a roll to roll option on the :Jeti Titan, a new 5 metre :Jeti and ever more productivity from our :Anapurna range. These new inkjet presses deliver all this and more," said Richard Barham, vice president for inkjet solutions at Agfa Graphics. "We also will be showing the market leading :Jeti Aquajet digital fabric printer. We are seeing a big pick up in digital fabric and UV as print service providers start to respond to environmental concerns from their customers."
"The combination of media versatility with environmentally friendly production and stunning image quality are driving the success of Agfa Graphics' UV inkjet presses," said Ingrid Merckx, COO for Inkjet solutions at Agfa Graphics. "Agfa's UV curable inks are VOC free and are suitable for printing on most substrates and hence the widest variety of applications, without compromising on speed or print quality."
Agfa Graphics will also present a new member of its :M-Press family.
":M-Press leads the market in high production presses, and without doubt delivers the best print quality for the lowest cost per square metre available today," said Tom Cloots, Business Line Manager for :M-Press at Agfa Graphics. "The industrial strength :M-Press has proven to be the right solution for that market, and with the new model we'll give access to the same high quality for less automated environments."
With the new :Anapurna M1600, which made its European debut at Sign UK, Agfa Graphics adds a 1.6m printer model for the entry level market, based on the successful :Anapurna M2050 .
Agfa Graphics will also demonstrate the latest five-meter superwide :Jeti 5048XL UV engine, the :Jeti Aquajet 3324 for textile applications and the highly innovative upgradeable :Jeti 3020 Titan flatbed press with a new 3.2 meter roll to roll option at Fespa Digital 2011.
