Agfa's New Hybrid LED Printer
New for February, Agfa Graphics is expanding its wide-format hybrid Anapurna LED series for sign and display professionals with a new 1.65 m-wide hybrid printer – the Anapurna H1650i LED. This smaller hybrid printer was designed as an accessible and cost-effective production tool that combines the latest LED technology with Agfa Graphics’ signature high-quality output.
Welcoming 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 printer, with which it shares several features and benefits. Like its bigger brother, the new Anapurna prints on rigid and flexible media by means of LED curing, resulting in a lower cost of ownership. It combines this with Agfa’s award-winning imaging quality, ink-saving thin ink layer technology and perfect white ink printing reliability, yet requires a smaller financial investment than other Anapurna engines.
“The hybrid Anapurna H1650i LED printer was designed as a robust, qualitative and versatile entry-level option for wide-format print service providers,” explains Philip Van der Auwera, Product Manager at Agfa Graphics. “Although smaller, it is equipped with features normally reserved for higher-end printers, such as automatic head height measurement, crash prevention and an anti-static bar, thus offering the very best at a reasonable price. Of course, the Anapurna H1650i LED is driven by Asanti as well, which adds to the resulting high-quality and consistent prints.”
About the hybrid Anapurna LED series
Wide-format hybrid Anapurna LED engines 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 functionality and six 12-picoliter printheads. Fitted with air-cooled UV LED lights that allow printing on thin and thermal sensitive substrates, these printers offer several unique advantages, such as a lower energy consumption, a wider application scope and higher productivity. All engines are powered by Agfa Graphics’ Asanti sign and display workflow software.
