European Digital Press Association (EDP) rewards UV LED inks from Agfa Graphics

Today, the winners of the EDP Awards were announced at FESPA 2017. Agfa Graphics’ UV LED inks, which are used in the Jeti Tauro H2500 LED, Anapurna H3200i LED, Jeti Ceres RTR3200 LED and Jeti Mira LED on the FESPA show floor, were recognized for their excellence.

The European Digital Press Association reviews products introduced in the European market evaluating quality, but also value to the user, support and service. It grants the EDP Awards to the best products of the year.

Agfa Graphics is proud to have been rewarded with this quality and innovation mark for its UV LED inks, now used in the entire assortment of Anapurna and Jeti wide-format printers and in many industrial printing.

Printing systems equipped with UV LED lamps provide a number of unique technical advantages resulting in important economical benefits for the system owner. These include a wider media scope, lower power consumption and better system uptime.

Agfa Graphics’ specially-formulated UV LED inks can print on a wide variety of rigid and flexible substrates guaranteeing outstanding print quality and perfect physical characteristics such as adhesion. These include heat-sensitive substrates such as thin styrene sheets, self-adhesive sheets and stretchable PVC materials. Agfa Graphics also markets UV LED inks for single-pass applications, available for inkjet system integrators active in marking and coding, digital label printing, packaging and object decoration.

Agfa’s UV inks boast a wide color gamut and high color vibrancy thanks to the well-known Thin Ink Layer technology from Agfa Graphics, which guarantees the lowest ink consumption with the highest color quality.
