Agfa offers FESPA visitors a route to new beginnings

Agfa offers FESPA visitors a route to new beginnings
 Under the heading ‘New beginnings. New opportunities’, Agfa will be using the occasion of FESPA Global Print Expo 2021, which will take place on 12th-15th October at the RAI in Amsterdam, to present its updated range of inkjet printing solutions.

Tom Vermeulen, Head of Agfa’s Inkjet Sign & Display Business Unit, commented: “We are thrilled that we will be able to welcome European sign and print companies at an Agfa trade fair booth again after all this time and talk to them in person. Even though we organised a series of well-attended virtual events, as well as numerous online demos over the past 1.5 years, it will be great to discuss companies’ needs in real life again. We look forward to helping them pick up the pace and create new opportunities for growth. We have been developing and fine-tuning quite a number of solutions over the past period that we are eager to show.”

The line-up of Agfa’s inkjet solutions at FESPA will include Agfa’s new flagship inkjet printer for the high end of the sign and display market, the 3.3 m hybrid Jeti Tauro H3300 UHS LED – aka ‘the Beast’ – which with its power and sturdy build, is geared towards the reliable 24/7 production of print jobs of first-rate image quality, even at the highest throughput (two-pass mode), achieving a speed of up to 600 m²/h. In addition to sign and display work, it is also well-suited for printing corrugated cardboard. The Jeti Tauro H3300 LED is available in six configurations – four for board printing and two for rolls. At FESPA, it will be shown with a manual loading table and an automated unloader.

Agfa’s second new printer is the Avinci CX3200 3.2 m dye-sublimation soft signage engine, which produces vibrant high-quality prints on a wide range of polyester-based fabrics that are suitable for use as both indoor or outdoor soft signage and interior decoration applications – either directly or with transfer paper as an intermediate step.

Also on the booth will be the Oberon RTR3300, Agfa’s 3.3 m high-end roll-to-roll machine that combines excellent quality and high throughput with a unique ease of use. Featuring UV LED curing and a water-cooled print plate, it tackles even the most heat-sensitive flexible materials. In addition, its dual-roll option enables efficient printing on two smaller media rolls.

All engines are driven by Agfa’s Asanti software, which streamlines the printing workflow, warrants colour consistency and deploys its smart algorithms to ensure the lowest ink consumption in the market.

In the wide-format application area, visitors will be able to discover a variety of eye-popping prints that show off the print quality of Agfa’s engines and GREENGUARD Gold certified inks, as well as the creative opportunities they bring about.

In a dedicated industrial inkjet zone, which will also display print samples, Agfa’s experts are ready to discuss Agfa’s solutions for inkjet applications where printing is part of an industrial production process. On the one hand, Agfa develops integrated printing solutions, such as Alussa for leather decoration or InterioJet for printing laminates. On the other hand, Agfa is present with high-performance inkjet inks – both UV and water-based pigment inks – for a wide range of industrial applications, partnering with both the OEMs of print solutions and their customers.
