The :Anapurna M 2050 (2.05m) has the white ink capabilities already proven in the popular :Anapurna Mw and the additional speed found in the :Anapurna M2. The new machine's versatility is enhanced with flexible media handling capability and a four-zone vacuum table which give additional strength for handling a wide range of substrates varying in size and thickness.
The :Anapurna M 2050's six-colors (CMYKLcLm) plus white capability and its 12 picolitre print-heads produce high quality solids and tonal rendering at up to 720 x 1440 dpi with vibrant colors and a wide color gamut. White is printed in-line with the other colors, so printing pre-white or post-white is carried out in the same printing pass. The :Anapurna M 2050's productivity is achieved with its eight print-heads for a total of 8,192 nozzles, plus the ability to output in both uni- and bi-directional modes without compromising performance or quality.
The :Anapurna M 2050 also comes equipped with registration bars, anti-static bars, shuttle safety sensors, automatic head height adjustment and a refined vacuum power control, all combined to deliver flawless rigid and roll-to-roll transport. Typical throughput speeds of the :Anapurna M 2050 in four-pass bi-directional mode are around 24 m2/hour optimized for poster and banner production. The new system is simple to operate via an integrated touch screen, and internal hard disk system for fast and secure transfer of data.
Media loading and changing on the :Anapurna M 2050 from rigid to flexible materials works fast and straightforward. All these benefits accommodate the need to change media quickly from job to job. Combined, these features make this system ideal for all types of applications up to a maximum size of 3 x 2m and 4.5 cm thickness on rigid media, with consistently fine photographic quality where detailed rendering, graduated tints and sharp text are essential.
