Agfa introduces InterioJet inkjet printing system for decor
Agfa’s new InterioJet 3300 is a multi-pass, water-based inkjet system that has been specially designed for use with the decor paper used for interior decoration, such as laminate floors and furniture. It boasts brilliant and consistent print quality and enables the creation of customised interior decorations, including brand logos, pictures and seasonal themes.

The InterioJet is built on the same inkjet printing platform as Agfa’s award-winning heavy-duty Jeti Tauro LED UV printing press for sign and display printing applications. It delivers the same printing reliability, but its printheads, inks and drying system are optimised for use with water-based pigment inks.

Tom Cloots, Director Industrial Inkjet for Agfa, commented: “The InterioJet 3300 will accelerate the transformation from analogue to digital printing in the laminated surface market.

“It is the ideal cost-efficient solution for medium and short production runs. “Its limited start-up time and high flexibility will enable suppliers of laminated surfaces to gain new business by responding to evolving market demands, including printing on demand and just-in-time delivery. The system enables interior decoration designers to let their creativity run free and create customised designs for every order.”

The InterioJet can print on two rolls at a time, each with a width of up to 155 cm and a weight of up to 600 kg, –at a speed of up to 340 m² per hour. It achieves excellent and consistent print quality throughout, as well as across print orders.

It excels through its superior contrast, sharpness, and colour saturation, matching typical decorative industry colour profiles.

Incorporating Agfa’s signature ‘Thin Ink Layer’ technology, the InterioJet boasts a low ink consumption, thus reducing production costs and footprint. In addition, it can be combined with various impregnation and lamination processes.

Like Agfa’s wide-format inkjet printers, the InterioJet is driven by Agfa’s Asanti workflow software, which adds to the system’s performance by controlling, simplifying and automating the entire printing process from prepress to finishing, assists integration of file handling, colour management and preflighting to guarantee smooth, error-free jobs.

For advanced workflow and colour management integration to the creative and reproduction processes, as well as cross-colour management with the analogue printing processes, Asanti is fully compatible with the latest AVA CAD CAM products.

 

In accordance with Agfa’s matched components’ approach, which ensures the accurate alignment of printing systems, workflow software and inks, the company has developed dedicated water-based pigment inks for the InterioJet. These eco-friendly inks are light- and waterfast and use specific pigments that deliver a high colour coverage and have proved to be a perfect fit for standard lamination production processes. Thanks to the thin dried layer, they can be used to print great wood and natural stone designs (such as marble) without surface relief.
