CSL Digital, a leading supplier of digital printing and cutting technologies to the sign and display markets in the UK, today announces that it has been appointed a specialist dealer for Fujifilm UV inkjet printers by Fujifilm UK Ltd.
CSL Digital has championed the use of UV cured inks in wide format printers and printer/cutters for several years and has been instrumental in the development and supply of affordable UV printing solutions to the sign and display industries.
Nick Wintle, Managing Director, CSL Digital: “It’s a great privilege to be appointed to represent the Fujifilm brand. In terms of UV print technologies, we believe that the Acuity LED 1600 II printer complements our current product range perfectly. We’ve spent a great deal of time and effort promoting the many virtues of printing with UV inks over the past few years – Instantly dry prints that are ready to use … No harmful fumes or excessive heat … Lower power consumption … More environmentally friendly ... – Now, with the Acuity LED 1600 II in our portfolio, we can offer our customers an affordable route to an even higher level of UV print productivity and versatility.”
The Acuity LED 1600 II printer is a high end production solution at a price point designed to appeal to businesses of all sizes. Driven by advanced Fujifilm technology, the Acuity LED 1600 II is a truly versatile UV inkjet printer that offers both primary roll-fed and secondary flatbed print capabilities utilising eight UV inks; Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, White and Clear.
The perfectly balanced performance of Fujifilm UV inks, Dimatix Q-class printheads and patented LED curing system produces high quality, outdoor durable images, on a wide range of roll and rigid materials, at print speeds of up to 33m2 per hour. To improve production efficiencies and print creativity still further, the Acuity LED 1600 II printer is capable of simultaneous, multi-layer, printing with white and clear inks. For example, the colour – white – colour layers required for double-sided window graphics can be printed in one pass.
Nigel Briggs, National Dealer Sales Manager, Fujifilm UK Ltd: “CSL Digital’s focus and strengths in the wide format market, coupled with the versatility and capabilities available from the Fujifilm Acuity LED 1600 II, makes CSL Digital the ideal specialist dealer for Fujifilm UV inkjet printers here in the UK. We are looking forward to working closely with CSL Digital to open up new opportunities and areas of growth for inkjet business, making use of CSL Digital’s specialist knowledge of the sign & display industry can only be beneficial to everyone involved.”
Wintle concludes: “Our customers have an understandable desire to follow the printer road map from roll-fed to full flatbed, however, the initial investment involved has remained a significant obstacle for many. We firmly believe that the Acuity LED 1600 II bridges this gap by offering both high production roll media printing and the opportunity to grow new revenue streams from rigid sheet printing that could ultimately finance a dedicated flatbed printer.”
