Press release from the issuing company

Valhalla, NY - ­ Fujifilm today introduced the new Acuity Advance HS (high speed) wide format UV flatbed printer. The Acuity Advance HS is the latest breakthrough in wide format UV digital imaging technology from Fujifilm and offers photographic quality printing at production speeds of 430 ft2 per hour, giving printers unmatched performance for the price. The HS also boasts a new express mode that allows it to print over 700 ft2 per hour.

"The Acuity Advance HS builds on the success of the Acuity Series by increasing the print performance to compete directly with much more expensive printers, but with the superior print quality that our customers expect with an Acuity," said Jeffrey Nelson, Product Marketing Manager - Digital Equipment, FUJIFILM Sericol. "The Acuity Advance HS is a true flatbed printer providing precise registration and edge-to-edge printing which saves time, labor and material. In addition, the roll media option makes it a cost effective UV roll solution for printing onto any number of flexible materials. This makes it ideal not only for graphic display POP printers who need higher productivity, but also for offset printers and commercial photo labs interested in a cost effective production press to expand their business to include high-quality flatbed printing."

The Acuity Advance HS¹s print performance is optimized by Fujifilm Sericol's uniquely formulated Uvijet inks. Uvijet's Micro-V dispersion technology delivers wide adhesion, vibrancy and durability in every print. With two unique ink sets available for Acuity Advance HS, customers can choose the right ink to suit their specific application requirements.

The Acuity Advance HS is available for customer demonstrations at the Fujifilm Demonstration Centers in Kansas City, Kan., and Hanover Park, Ill. Fujifilm expects to begin shipment of the Acuity Advance HS in March. The new press will also be showcased at the International Sign Association Sign Expo (ISA) in Orlando, Fla., this April. The Acuity Advance HS UV flatbed printer is sold exclusively throughout the United States by Fujifilm Sericol and Fujifilm Graphic Systems.
