RahSince its introduction last year, the hybrid JetiTauro H3300 LED has proven a global sales success, with users praising its superior image quality and outstanding productivity. Agfa’s flagship was awarded the Product of the Year award in the ‘Roll-to-Roll UV (over 80-inches)’ category by the American Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) last autumn. On top of that, the JetiTauro H3300 LED won Gold in the prestigious Canadian Printing Awards for most progressive inkjet printing process.

JetiTauro H3300 LED embodies ‘Extreme productivity. In addition, it boasts four levels of automation, so PSPs can configure the engine to their specific needs. Next to the manual loading and unloading, semi-automation, and full automation modes, the JetiTauro H3300 LED offers a master roll-to-roll configuration that enables large printing shops to combine high-end roll and board applications with a single high-productivity UV inkjet printer.

Featuring outstanding resolution of 635 x 1200-dpi in all print modes, the engine produces prints up to 3.3-m (130-inches) wide at speeds up to 453-m²/h (4,876 ft²/h). It is the only UV inkjet system to support single or dual master rolls for uninterrupted, unattended operations.

The Agfa booth will also showcase another SGIA Product of the Year award winner, the Anapurna H3200i LED, which won in the UV Hybrid (USD 100,000 - USD 500,000) category. This 3.2-m hybrid printing engine is ideal for a variety of uncoated rigid media and roll media applications. The six-colour engine also includes white ink to print spot colours or to print on transparent material for backlit applications. At Fespa, the Anapurna H3200i LED will operate in dual roll-mode.

At Fespa 2019, Agfa will also demo the latest version of Asanti, its smart automated production hub and workflow tool for sign and display companies. Asanti streamlines workflow processes and offers print producers outstanding print quality and colour consistency.

New to Asanti 4.0 is the support of the G7 method, a device-independent set of specifications for achieving accurate colors and thus visual similarity across all print processes. The G7 method outlines easy-to-follow guidelines for implementing ISO printing standards and additional metrics. Asanti’s new G7 support is part of the software’s integrated colour management wizard.
