Agfa will reveal for the first time in the UK and Ireland, its new Anapurna H1650i LED at Sign & Digital which takes place on the 24th-26th of April at the NEC in Birmingham.
Agfa’s distribution partners, I-Sub Digital (Stand J36) and Josero (Stand C22) will demonstrate and explain the features and benefits of this exciting new 1.65 meter-wide hybrid wide format press. The Anapurna H1650i LED was designed as an accessible and cost-effective production tool that combines the latest LED technology with Agfa’s signature high-quality output. Agfa will also have on display a creative application wall on the stand of Antalis (Stand L10) showcasing creative ideas from Agfa’s range of Anapurna and Jeti wide format inkjet systems.
The new Anapurna H1650i LED
The latest addition to the Anapurna LED series, the Anapurna H1650i LED – is a smaller version of the popular and robust Anapurna H2050i LED press, with which it shares several features and benefits. Like its bigger brother, the new Anapurna H1650i LED prints on both rigid and flexible media and cures with air-cooled UV LED lamps, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership. It combines this with Agfa’s award-winning imaging quality, ink-saving Thin Ink Layer Technology and reliable white ink printing, yet requires a smaller financial investment than other systems in this segment.
“The hybrid Anapurna H1650i LED system was designed as a robust, qualitative and versatile entry-level option for wide-format print service providers,” explains Steve Collins, Marketing and Channel Manager at Agfa Graphics UK & Ireland “Although smaller, it is equipped with features normally reserved for higher-end systems, ticking all the boxes for printing a wide range of rigid and flexible materials. Sign & Digital will be a great showcase for the first appearance of the Anapurna H1650i LED in the UK and Ireland.
About the hybrid Anapurna LED series
Agfa’s wide-format hybrid Anapurna LED hybrid presses are robust, high-speed workhorses that take on both rigid and flexible print jobs, and excel in accuracy thanks to a reinforced belt drive and shuttle beam, a gradient and multi-layer print functionality with up-to eight 12-picoliter KM1024i print heads. Fitted with air-cooled UV LED lights that allow printing on thin and thermal sensitive substrates, every Anapurna LED system offers several unique advantages, such as a lower energy consumption, a wider application scope and higher productivity. With its latest introduction, Agfa now offers the complete range of hybrid UV LED wide-format systems from 1.65-meters up-to 3.2-meters wide, plus dedicated roll-to-roll, true flatbed and dye-sublimation presses. All engines are powered by Agfa’s’ Asanti sign and display workflow software.
