Agfa introduces the Oberon RTR3300

Agfa has further complemented its large-format inkjet printer portfolio with the addition of the Oberon RTR3300, a dedicated 3.3m high-end roll-to-roll machine that combines extreme productivity and quality with an extensive media scope and ease of use.

The new Oberon RTR3300 comes in both a four colour plus white, and a six-colour version, depending on user needs and preferences. In ‘express mode’, it hits an impressive 150 m²/h, while still delivering Agfa’s well-known image quality. In ‘Production mode’, the Oberon reaches a consistent 85 m² per hour, while the dual-roll option is capable of handling two rolls each up to 1.6 metre wide, thus doubling the total output.

The UV LED inks on the Oberon RTR3300 were optimised for use with flexible media and excel in the smooth printing of solid colours. They obtained the highest category of Greenguard Gold certification, which means they meet some of the world’s most rigorous chemical emissions standards and can be used in sensitive indoor environments, such as schools or healthcare facilities.

The Oberon RTR3300 covers significant media diversity and a wide range of applications, enabling sign and print companies to execute all their customers’ creative wishes, while also inspiring them to explore new directions.

In addition to its air-cooled LED curing lamps, the Oberon RTR3300 features a unique water-cooled table that keeps the printing zone at room temperature. Therefore, operators can smoothly process any kind of heat-sensitive roll material, including lower-cost media, while the dedicated mesh printing functionality makes printing on mesh (with or without liner) more convenient than ever.

The Oberon RTR3300 was designed with a view to offering convenience, lean operations and peace of mind. Thanks to a unique media loading setup, a single operator can quickly load the media and the smart multi-queue functionality guarantees effortless job planning in view of the available materials. Further, the free-fall option, which may be used to print on demand, reduces media wastage and a lightbox next to the printing area facilitates on-the-spot quality inspection of backlit prints, while a double light curtain ensures that jobs don’t get interrupted and media wasted, even when an operator accidentally moves into the safety zone.

Commenting on Agfa’s latest printer offering, Tom Vermeulen, Agfa’s Head of Sign & Display, said: “When developing the Oberon, we once again focused on merging extreme productivity with extreme quality, in addition to delivering the lowest ink consumption levels and reduced overall operational costs, and in so doing, provide sign and print companies a competitive edge.

“This new engine builds on decades of experience in developing and manufacturing versatile large-format printing solutions. Our unique systems approach integrates and optimises engine, ink, media, workflow and colour management to ensure the highest quality, consistency and reliability.”

The Oberon RTR3300 is currently making its debut at the C!Print show in (Lyon, France, 4th-6th February 2020) and at FESPA (Madrid, Spain, 24th-27th March 2020).
