Fuji and Fujifilm Sericol have announced the introduction of the new Acuity Advance X2. The Acuity Advance X2 doubles the size of the print bed from the current Acuity Advance which enables printing onto substrates as large as 120 x 98.4 inches and as thick as 1.88 inches. The dual zoning system with independent vacuum control allows the printing of an image in one zone while setting up another image in the second zone, thereby increasing throughput.
The Acuity Advance X2 incorporates the same modified printhead array as the Acuity Advance. The X2 produces outstanding quality at print speed of 237 ft2/hr. In addition, the Acuity Advance X2 is available in a four color CMYK offering or CMYK plus white. Utilizing Fujifilm Sericol Uvijet UV inks, the Acuity Advance X2 delivers unmatched flexibility, allowing users to print a very opaque white under, over or between print layers.
Incorporating variable droplet printhead technology, the Acuity Advance X2 delivers near-photographic image quality, and includes a true flatbed platform to easily print onto a wide variety of rigid substrates. Additionally, an optional roll-to-roll module is ideal for printing onto all types of flexible media up to 86.6 inches wide.
The Acuity Advance X2 will be unveiled at the Graf Italia show, (March 24th ?March 28th 2009), on the Fujifilm stand. Its North American debut will be at Grafik' Art Tradeshow (April 23 th ? 25 th 2009) at Place Bonaventure in Montreal, Quebec. Commercial shipments will commence worldwide in May.
