Specialist print service provider Kaylee has ordered a Fujifilm Acuity Advance Select X2 to replace its outdated digital flatbed equipment and enhance its range of services. Focused on the development and supply of signage, graphics and decals for the automotive, transportation and construction industry, Kaylee was on the lookout for a reliable flatbed device to create outstanding applications on a variety of substrates.
“We examined the market extensively and were struck by the image quality and ink features offered by Fujifilm’s Acuity Advance Select X2,” comments Iain Hardiker, managing director at Kaylee. He explains: “This device can handle a broad array of rigid and flexible materials, including most display boards and plastics. In addition, the Fujifilm Uvijet UV curing inks deliver vibrant colours with great image quality. The ink adhesion is unparalleled and will allow us to proceed immediately with cutting and finishing without compromising the final results.”
He adds, “We are looking forward to making the most of these capabilities to produce eye-catching applications on acrylic, polycarbonate and other plastic materials. What’s more, the roll option will enable us to print roll media, such as banners and vinyls, improving our versatility.”
Kaylee will also benefit from the larger size print bed that comes with the Acuity X2 models to produce images up to 2.5 x 3.05m, as well as the ability to use up to eight colour channels, including white and clear.
The company boasts a longstanding relationship with Fujifilm. As Iain explains, “We value Fujifilm as an extremely competent ink manufacturer and we appreciate its strong colour management expertise. The consistent and reliable colour reproduction guaranteed by Fujifilm’s Acuity Advance Select X2 was a key factor in our decision making process.”
He concludes, “The Acuity Advance Select X2 is a user friendly yet advanced platform. We’re confident that the combination of high image quality and superior colour control, together with the professional support from Fujifilm, will enable us to deliver the high quality work for which we’re known.”
