LED UV has the capability to be a leading inkjet technology in the future. LEDs produce very little heat which means they can work with heat-sensitive media. They consume far less energy than conventional UV lamps and last up to ten times longer. Above all they are much kinder to the environment – a concern for printer operators and their customers alike.
The Fujifilm Acuity LED 1600 is a large format hybrid printer designed to give exceptional print results in the most environmentally friendly way. Fujifilm’s unique, purpose-designed ink, printheads and curing system work in perfect harmony to give smooth, near-photographic results at impressive print speeds.
Fujifilm Acuity LED UV printer
Although it has the most sophisticated print science behind it, the Acuity LED 1600 is an easy-to-use, large format hybrid printer that’s equally suitable for an office, studio or workshop. It is amazingly versatile and prints stunning images onto a wide range of roll or rigid media
- Excellent coverage with strong, vibrant colours
- Eight colour ink set including CMYK plus light cyan, light magenta, white and clear
- Prints colours, white or varnish together in one pass
- Low energy consuming, long life LEDs
- Fujifilm spot colour matching software and RIP included
- Flatbed feed and receive tables
Fujifilm VersaDrop imaging
VersaDrop multi-pulse jetting delivers droplets of different sizes according to the definition needed by the image. This gives both smooth changes in tone and rock-solid spot colours. VersaDrop achieves phenomenal accuracy by forming droplets at the nozzle rather than in flight to the substrate, where they can be disturbed by air turbulence above the media.
Driven by Fujifilm technology
At the heart of the Acuity LED 1600 lie ink, printheads and LED curing systems that were designed for each other. They are accurately tuned to give brilliant images, at speed, even on traditionally difficult to print media.
The combination of technology is clever enough to allow the Acuity LED 1600 to print colour, white or varnish simultaneously in one pass without re-rolling.
It’s a state-of-the-art technology made possible by Fujifilm’s commitment to research and development. The result is an outstanding printer which is flexible and reliable with minimal environmental impact.
Fujifilm LED UV lamp system
The Acuity LED 1600’s patented full LED lamp system is perfectly tuned to cure its own Uvijet ink in a two-stage curing process. Small, low-dose LED pinning lamps close to the printhead freeze the dot, while the main LED curing lamps fully cure the print which is ready to use straight away. Adjustable lamp positioning enables the curing to be finely controlled.
Fujifilm Dimatix heads
The Acuity LED 1600 uses eight Q-class printheads. These high frequency heads are both precise, fast, and have a track record of long life in high performance production. The combination of VersaDrop multi-pulse jetting technology and accurate control of the jetting, pinning and curing process, enables the Acuity LED 1600 to produce quality print at fast print speeds.
Fujifilm Uvijet inks
Uvijet ink systems are renowned in the industry through Fujifilm’s high-productivity wide format printers. Made using Fujifilm’s Micro-V ultrafine dispersion technology, enabling higher pigmentation, they produce strong, vibrant images and a wide colour gamut. The Acuity LED UV’s dedicated eight-colour UV LED ink set includes white and clear varnish. The Acuity LED 1600 can apply colours, white or varnish in a single pass, offering a host of creative possibilities.
Profit from your creativity
The Acuity LED 1600 is a winner for one simple reason – it’s a profit generator. LEDs only use a quarter of the energy of conventional UV lamps, and they last ten times longer. The printer can also tackle a huge range of roll and rigid applications including heat-sensitive film and non-PVC media, which buyers are demanding more and more. It is built to breeze through all the standard applications, including posters, window displays, backlit signs, indoor and outdoor signs, point of purchase and packaging. But with white and clear inks as standard, the Acuity LED 1600 can also produce high added-value work.
