Fujifilm adds productivity enhancements to Acuity Advance

Press release from the issuing company

Valhalla, N.Y. – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division today announced the introduction of several new features on the Acuity Advance and Acuity Advance-X2 wide format UV inkjet printers. These enhanced platforms replace the highly successful existing Acuity Advance and Acuity Advance-X2, which were launched in October 2008 and January 2009 respectively. Two of the most popular flatbed inkjet printers on the market today, these new versions of the Acuity Advance and Acuity Advance-X2 will join the Acuity Advance LT, Acuity Advance HS, and Advance HS X2 printers in Fujifilm's printer line-up.

The new Acuity Advance platform maintains the near-photographic image quality and leading design features of the original Acuity Advance, while delivering significant functional improvements and enhanced value.

- A new Express Mode offers speeds of up to 377 sq ft per hour billboard-quality printing, complementing the existing POP production speed of 239 sq ft per hour and high-quality mode speed of 164 sq ft per hour.

- A new High Definition print mode supports a minimum text size of 2 points, for markets and applications where very fine feature detail is required.

- An improved vacuum table enables superior handling of thin media. The zoned vacuum design promotes printing onto all types of media, including irregularly shaped or uneven surface materials and ensures accurate registration even on multiple passes.  

- A redesigned energy-efficient UV curing system that makes more curing energy available while reducing the heat on the media surface by up to 50% as compared to the current Acuity Advance printer.

As with all other Acuity models, the new Acuity Advance has an optional roll media kit for printing onto any number of flexible materials. This simple-to-use option offers added versatility, such as allowing an operator to prepare rigid material on the flatbed while the roll media is printing.

The new Acuity Advance-X2 includes all the improvements and enhanced value available in the new Acuity Advance, but has double the print area.  Allowing for printing onto substrates up to 98" wide x 120" long, and as thick as 1.89", this larger bed provides greater flexibility and capacity to the end user, facilitating printing of larger jobs.

The print performance of the Acuity Advance is optimized by Fujifilm'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 the Acuity Advance and Acuity Advance-X2, customers can choose the right ink to suit their specific application requirements.
