Fujifilm Debuts Inca Onset R40i in North America at SGIA

Press release from the issuing company

The R40i delivers the ideal combination of speed and quality 

HANOVER PARK, IL – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division, in collaboration with Inca Digital, will showcase the all-new Inca Onset R40i, with the Hostert full automation system, on the show floor at SGIA Expo 2014 in Las Vegas. 

The Onset R40i is the latest addition to the Onset family of high performance, UV flatbed presses. The R40i makes its North American debut at SGIA in Fujifilm booth # 2454, with live demonstrations throughout the show. 

Utilizing FUJIFILM Dimatix print heads, the R40i delivers a 14-picolitre drop size over a genuine 4,300 ft2/hr. This translates to 80 full bed sheets (5’ x 10’) of high quality, sellable output. Based on the Onset Scaleable Architecture platform, the new Onset is available with a variety of configurations (CMYK, Lm, Lc and white), with customers being able to configure their press as a 4, 6, or 8 channel press at time of order or upgrade in the field as their needs change over time. 

“Fujifilm is the exclusive global distribution partner of Inca Digital, and we are thrilled to feature the R40i on the show floor at SGIA 2014,” said Becky McConnell, associate product marketing manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “Also, adding the Hostert full automation system allows print providers to see how they can significantly increase productivity and reduce costs.”

Onset can print on media as large as 123.6” x 63” and up to 2” thick at the rate with near offset like print quality.  

Like all Onsets, the R40i is shipped with Inca Digital’s exclusive Print Run Controller (PRC) software. PRC helps customers manage larger and more complex printing projects which require many different pieces and quantities to be run in an automated fashion. 

The R40i maintains the same intelligent design features of the existing Onset series, including a 15-zoned vacuum table, a UV sensor system, and mechanical substrate detectors, which help maintain productivity, print quality, and reliability. 

Automation Options

The R40i is compatible with Inca Digital’s flexible automation system, allowing customers the choice to operate manually or with semi or three-quarter automation. On the show floor at SGIA, attendees will see the R40i running with the Hostert full automation system.  

The Hostert Automatic feeder is an efficient automatic substrate feeding and alignment solution. Integrated tightly with Inca Digital’s takeoff system, this combination allows for continuous printing onto a variety of substrates/sizes commonly utilized within the display, POP and sign markets. 

Be sure to visit Fujifilm and their “Now You Can” themed booth, # 2454, at SGIA Expo 2014.
