Agfa is gearing up for SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, September 14–16) with the introduction of another Anapurna i-series printer - the Anapurna H3200i LED system, a 3.2m hybrid solution for printing both rigid and flexible media with air-cooled 16 Watt/cm² LED UV lamps powered by its Asanti workflow for wide-format printers.

Agfa says unlike mercury lamps, the lifetime of the LED alternative is in line with the economical Anapurna H3200i LED head carriage 20x15 resizedlifetime of a printer of typically five years. LED lamps can be switched on/off instantaneously, without degradation of intensity. As a consequence, both the cost and the downtime for changing lamps are obviated, while there is no issue in disposing them either. In addition, the power output remains consistent over the LEDs’ operating life, which is an important element in maintaining good physical characteristics of the print with regards to adhesion for example. Finally, LED lamps have no warm-up, nor cool-down time, so power consumption is drastically lower during printing and reduced to an absolute minimum when paused, which results in a lower energy bill.

“The Anapurna H3200i LED exactly meets the needs of most of our customers,” says Willy Van Dromme, Manager marketing Wide-Format, Agfa Graphics. “This is a belt-driven hybrid machine which handles all types of roll media in a size up to 3.2 m, both in a single-roll and a dual-roll configuration, and it also allows for printing on 4ft x 8ft (2m x 3m) rigids, fed with the long size first. Thanks to the LED UV curing it supports the widest media mix in the market at all print quality levels.” 

The Anapurna H3200i LED offers both high throughput and high print quality. The white ink function is built in. It includes pre-, post-, spot and even sandwich white.  

“With the Asanti workflow for wide-format printers, LED UV curing and the broadened assortment with Anapurna H3200i LED, we underline our commitment to the sign and display market at SGIA,” says Van Dromme, “Our customers will benefit from the operational savings, the broader media range and the environmental advantages that LED UV curing adds to the systems, without compromising on either print quality or productivity.”
