Agfa introduces Avinci CX3200 for soft signage

By 11 Jun 2021

The new Avinci CX3200 is a dye-sublimation roll-to-roll printer that can print either directly to textile or on transfer paper. It delivers high productivity and a consistently vibrant print quality on a wide range of polyester-based fabrics. The Avinci CX3200 engine enables sign printing companies to create textile prints of up to 3.2-m wide at a production speed of up to 270-m²/h. The engine uses eco-friendly, odourless water-based dye sublimation inks to print either directly to fabric or to transfer paper.

Being able to print directly to fabric is easy and ideally suited for fast handling of soft signage applications such as banner displays, wall graphics and point-of-sales or trade show displays, as well as for special applications requiring print-through, such as flags. Transfer paper, in turn, allows for super sharp prints, eliminates any set-off, and limits media waste to a minimum. In addition, it extends the application scope to sportswear and fashion garments, as well as home décor prints on non-coated polyester fabrics.

The Avinci CX3200 guarantees a wide and vibrant colour gamut, outstanding tonal rendering and fine detail reproduction. The dedicated dye-sub inks stand out through their flexibility, and outdoor resistance. They deliver a stable jetting performance and the same first-rate quality batch after batch. An offline calendering unit effectively fixes the colours after printing.

Philip Van der Auwera, wide-format marketing manager at Agfa, said: “The market demand for soft signage keeps growing, as it is lightweight, resistant to wrinkles and folding, and easy to transport and reuse. The Avinci CX3200 will meet the needs of existing textile printing companies, as well as enable sign & display printers to diverge into textile printing and bring in new business. We designed it to be fit for high productivity and maximum uptime. It is extremely robust and reliable, as well as easy to operate.”

The new Avinci CX3200 is a solidly built, reliable engine that can handle any job from a single print to sizeable runs in a 24/7 setup. It is equipped with Kyocera water-based print heads that will cover the printer’s entire life cycle. The strong pre-heater limits drying time and reduces set-off, while the vacuum make sure that thin transfer papers are kept perfectly wrinkle-free.

Changeover between jobs is fast and easy. Loading a new roll can be done in less than seven minutes by a single operator, thanks to the automatic media transport with pinch rollers.

The Avinci CX3200 is driven by Agfa’s intuitive Asanti workflow software, which streamlines all preparation, production and finishing steps of the printing process. Its smart algorithms guarantee high print quality and colour consistency, as well as low ink consumption.
