Agfa Graphics has announced another significant enhancement to its broad portfolio of UV-curable inkjet solutions with the launch of the "FTR" or flat-to-roll option for the landmark grand-format :Jeti 3020 Titan flatbed at the International Sign Expo Show (ISA) in Las Vegas. The :Jeti 3020 Titan has the ability to print on a wide range of uncoated and coated roll media for printing banners and larger images up to 100 feet or even longer. The FTR option supports industry standard 126 inch-wide media. The new :Jeti 3020 Titan with FTR option makes its global debut at Agfa’s booth (#4153) during ISA’s Sign Expo 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, April 28-30.
The FTR option is field-upgradeable and allows :Jeti 3020 Titan users to address new applications at any time. With the option installed, output is produced with the same high quality and resolution as on rigid materials, without losing speed. As the FTR option supports rolls up to 750 pounds, print service providers can buy media more economically and compete in more markets. :Jeti 3020 Titan uses UV-curable inks and prints on a wide range of uncoated and coated roll media types such as banner media, vinyl, polyester, canvas, paper, self-adhesive PVC, PVC/PA-transparent media and more.
"The FTR option has been a highly successful addition to our :Jeti 1224 HDC (high definition color) true flatbed. We developed the same functionality for our :Jeti 3020 Titan in response to demand expressed by print service providers who wanted extra flexibility from their equipment," said Deborah Hutcheson, director of marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "Our customers know that Agfa protects their investment. With the scalability of the :Jeti 3020 Titan and now the field upgradeable flat-to-roll option, our customers will maintain a competitive edge with an option that will provide maximum flexibility."
The Agfa Graphics :Jeti 3020 Titan true flatbed features a maximum print area of 126" x 79" and Ricoh Gen 4 greyscale print heads resulting in fast, high quality CMYK output with the ability to deliver 1200 dpi for photorealistic image quality. For upgradeability, users can start with a base configuration of 16 heads and upgrade all the way to 48 heads at any time to achieve productivity up to 2,432 sq. feet per hour. Head configuration choices include a doubling of the CMYK set for higher throughput, white and varnish for artistic effects and even higher quality with light cyan and light magenta. To extend color gamut, orange and green can be added.
