PriscoDigital To Distribute Agfa's line of wide-format printers

Press release from the issuing company

(September 21, 2008) Agfa Graphics announced today that PriscoDigital has become the newest dealer to offer Agfa's line of wide-format inkjet printers and consumables. Among the products and services Prisco will be offering is Agfa's full line of :Anapurna Wide Format Printing Systems. These include the new products announced at drupa 2008, the :Anapurna XLS, the :Anapurna Mv and the :Anapurna M4f.

The new :Anapurna XLS is designed to provide photographic quality at high-production speeds. The 100-inch wide :Anapurna XLS comes in a choice of speeds and produces top-quality printing with highly saturated, wide gamut colors. It also allows borderless printing and has the capability for dual board printing.

The :Anapurna M4f has the same robust design as the M model, featuring four CMYK printheads. It comes as an industrially designed 'value for money' UV-ink printer with roll-to-roll as an option. The :Anapurna Mv also takes the :Anapurna M design and prints either spot or overall varnish to further improve printed materials' cosmetic appearance and add customer appeal. They all have a 62 inches maximum media width and use state-of-the-art 14 picoliter printheads. With the Agfa-made UV-curable :Anapurna ink they offer affordable photo-quality to screen and sign making shops.

"We are pleased to be Agfa's newest national distributor of the :Anapurna inkjet products in the United States. Both Agfa and Prisco have a long history in the printing industry and are leading the growth in digital inkjet technologies," said Steve Zunde, president, PriscoDigital.
