Fujifilm has announced the release of a new machine in its Acuity series, the Acuity 15. A highly capable introductory model, this UV flatbed printer matches the renowned high quality produced by Fujifilm’s Acuity Select 20 and 30 series, but at a lower investment cost.
Designed for light production, the Acuity 15 offers near-photographic image quality and print speeds of up to 23 square metres per hour. Much like the Acuity 20 and 30 series, it boasts a robust platform that can print on rigid and flexible media up to 50.8mm thick. The vacuum system also reduces the need for masking, making it easy to load the media onto the bed.
The cost and specifications of the new Acuity 15 printer make it a very suitable, high-quality introductory model to meet the low volume and light production needs of commercial, graphic display and industrial printers. However, larger print service providers can also take advantage of the printer, to offer proofs or show sample pieces to their customers, freeing up capacity on their larger flatbed machines.
Says Tudor Morgan, Segment Manager Sign & Display at Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe: “With the Acuity 15, Fujifilm is delighted to bring the benefits of its Acuity flatbed range to a much broader range of print service providers. Able to produce the same quality as our Select 20 and 30 ranges, the Acuity 15 provides a great investment opportunity for any print business looking to diversify. Whether for a full print job, a proof or even as a way to get into printing thermoformed objects, it gives small and large print businesses alike the chance to offer their customers stunning, rigid and flexible prints on almost any surface.”
The Acuity 15 is available now across the EMEA region with the Uvijet KN multipurpose ink system or Uvijet KV thermoforming ink system, with both Uvijet ink ranges enabling CMYK and white ink printing.
