Agfa debuts Avinci DX3200 for printing soft signage
Agfa Graphics will use the occasion of the forthcoming ISA Expo, which will take place in Las Vegas on 20th-22nd April in Las Vegas, to introduce the Avinci DX3200, a new dye sublimation printer.
A dedicated, highly productive soft signage engine, the Avinci DX3200 was designed to deliver remarkable print quality on to polyester-based fabrics and enable users to create large-format soft signage prints of up to 3.2 m wide, at a resolution of up to 1440 x 540 dpi. Thanks to the dye sublimation process, this robust engine produces high-quality, vivid prints for countless interior and exterior applications.
According to Agfa, pilot users of the printer have been impressed by its speed and print quality, as well as its advantageous price/productivity proposition. It features sixcolours (CMYKLcLm) at a droplet size of 14pl to guarantee a vibrant colour gamut, outstanding tonal rendering and fine detail reproduction. It also offersdifferent quality modes, with a speed of up to 173m2/h depending on the application.
The machine, which also features smart algorithms that enable very low ink consumption, can be used to produce a wide variety of polyester-based applications, such as banners, point-of-sale displays, indoor wall graphics, outdoor advertising, trade show displays and flags.
TheAvinci DX3200 comes complete with Agfa Graphics’ Asanti software, which optimises and automates all preparation, production and finishing steps of signage products. The core includes automation, colour management, job pre-flighting, and templates.
With Asanti comes a series of essential features for soft signage printers, such as Integration with Storefront, Agfa’s solution for the automated management of web-to-print and web shops, automated positioning of grommets on banners and the easy design of canvas extensions, such asair pockets for flags.
Asanti also recently introduced integrated tiling so that oversized banners or billboards that extend beyond the maximum printing width can be produced on the Avinci DX3200. In addition, it creates mounting instructions and adds the necessary marks to the tiled prints to help the operator mount them swiftly and in the correct way, thus avoiding unnecessary costs for reprints.
Thanks to its textile-dedicated media transport system, the Avinci ensures a perfect wind-up process of the printed substrate. It is also compatible with most off-line calendering solutions on the market, which fix the colours deeply into the structure of polyester-based fabrics.
Following its introduction at ISA International Sign Expo 2017,the Avinci DX3200 willmke its European debut at FESPA 2017 in Hamburg, Germany on May 8th-12th.
