Agfa Graphics' :Anapurna M2 Gets a speed boost

Friday, April 10, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Mortsel, Belgium -- Agfa Graphics proudly announces the :Anapurna M2 UV inkjet wide format printer. Based on Agfa's best-selling, industry award-winning :Anapurna M family of UV inkjet printers, the :Anapurna  M2 is a feature complete heavy-duty industrial UV inkjet system.

Many automation enhancements make the :Anapurna M2 the new trendsetter in the market of wide format UV inkjet printing. A unique vacuum strength control system was designed for smooth substrate transport at high speeds. Shuttle safety sensors protect the print heads in case of variable substrate height, and an ionizing bar prevents electro-static loads on the substrate, ensuring optimum ink droplet positioning and therefore delivering the highest print quality. All this comes standard in the :Anapurna M2; it is designed to cope with peak production and high volume workloads. The :Anapurna M2 boosts a more powerful fastscan motor driving a shuttle with 6 printheads with 1024 nozzles each which provides increased speed. Convenient by design, the printer handles roll-to-roll media as well as rigids. Media loading is made extremely straightforward with automated media registration bars and head height adjustment.

"The :Anapurna M2 is ideally suited for graphic screen printers, commercial printers, sign shops and photo labs that demand high quality", said Willy Van Dromme, Business Line Manager for Wide Format at Agfa Graphics. "It is built to be robust with industrial strength. It is thé high throughput UV-ink printer of choice to fit for heavy workloads and peak performance with top quality."

The :Anapurna M2 has a maximum media width of 62 inches and uses the latest Konica-Minolta 12 picoliter print heads offering unparalleled image quality at 720 x 1440 dpi. Both in uni- and bi-directional modes, prints are sharp and show high detail rendering and fine text. Printing in the 8 pass uni-directional mode delivers output in photo quality. Maximum productivity is achieved in 4 pass bi-directional mode and results in an output of approx. 23 square meters per hour.

In combination with the Agfa-made UV-curable :Anapurna ink, :Anapurna M2 offers top-notch photo-quality at high throughput speeds.
