Acuity Triton is the ideal pairing for the Aquafuze ink technology

The Acuity Triton project brings two titans of the wide format inkjet industry. The hardware is manufactured in Japan by Mutoh, whose reputation for building quality-driven, reliable inkjet printers over the last 20 years is outstanding. The Aquafuze ink has been developed and produced by Fujifilm, drawing on its unparalleled track record of ink innovation.

Acuity Triton is the ideal pairing for the Aquafuze ink technology to support its vast range of applications with excellent print results for this market space.

Aquafuze technology meets a multitude of market requirements by combining the benefits of UV LED and water-based inkjet. It has low-energy, low-temperature drying compared to traditional water-based print systems. It provides excellent adhesion to a wide range of media without the need for a pre-coat primer or optimiser. Prints have a thin film, that is scratch-resistant and does not require a top-coat. In addition, they are low-odour and safety compliant. The technology offers excellent jetting stability through reduced nozzle blocking due to low-temperature drying.

The company believes that in a saturated market, it was high time a revolutionary technology broke into this space to offer wide format print companies a real differentiator in productivity and all-round performance, and this with sustainability in mind.
