CONSAC 2014 (TORONTO, Canada) - A wide-format inkjet printing system, media, workflow and more will be on display at the Agfa Graphics booth (#342) during CONSAC Imagemakers, the Sign Association of Canada's National Tradeshow. CONSAC Imagemakers is being held September 19th and 20th, 2014 at the International Centre in Mississauga, ON.

Attendees to the show can see the Anapurna M2540 FB, which was designed for printing on rigid substrates. The six-colour plus white Anapurna M2540 FB features a powerful, two-zone vacuum bed for swift removal of finished prints and moving of heavy substrates, helping print service providers (PSPs) save time for greater overall efficiency.

With a maximum print speed of 484 ft2/hr, the Anapurna M2540 FB can print on 8.3' x 5' substrates up to 1.77" thick. The system's eleven retractable register pins simplify quick and accurate positioning, particularly when working on double-sided jobs.

The Anapurna M2540 FB can accommodate various applications, including niche output such as promotional goods and gifts, coasters and DVDs. The printer's industrial design features ionizer elements to prevent the build-up of electrostatic charge on the media which can affect droplet control and subsequent precision ink lay-down. To protect the print-heads from hitting the media, shuttle safety sensors are positioned on both sides of the print carriage, thus eliminating unwanted strikes.

"It is important these days for PSPs to be versatile and nimble in the products that they offer to their customer base. With a system like the Anapurna M2540 FB, and the various media options Agfa Graphics offers, PSPs can please their current client base and attract new clients into the fold, without sacrificing quality," said Ruben Silva, Managing Director, Agfa Graphics Canada.

In addition to the Anapurna M2540 FB, attendees can also see the Kongsberg V24cutting table that handles the widest range of materials and applications along with an assortment of Duratex Flexible Media.
