Uvistar Hybrid 320 is a 3.2-metre UV production printer which is equipped with a combination of flatbed and roll printer. According to Fujifilm, “The machine capable of producing quality output at speeds of up to 201 square meters an hour.” 
Commenting on the occasion, Yasunobu Nishiyama, managing director, Fujifilm India, said, “With the launch of Uvistar Hybrid 320, we aim to strengthen our presence in the Indian graphic arts market. The graphics arts business is one of the most important drivers for Fujifilm’s growth in the Indian market.”
SM Ramprasad, EVP-Graphic Arts division, Fujifilm India, said, “The Uvistar Hybrid 320 is more than just another great addition to our wide format line-up. Its launch is the next vital step in ensuring that Fujifilm’s complete portfolio of wide-format products deliver the necessary solutions to all customers – regardless of their needs in terms of print size, turnaround time or run volume,”

Highlighting the features of the machine, he added, “Several innovative technologies come together in the Uvistar Hybrid 320, setting the Uvistar Hybrid 320 apart from the competition. The first innovation is the use of Fujifilm Dimatix Q-Class printheads and VersaDrop jetting technology which enables the press to the image in greyscale with droplet sizes ranging from 10–30 pl, which produce the finest details at the fastest speeds.”
In addition, the Uvistar Hybrid 320 has a ‘continuous board’ capability that increases productivity when feeding multiple sheets of the same stock during production which offers time savings between sheets as the print carriage continues moving. 
Ramprasad said, “The wide colour gamut of the machine uses Fujifilm's new Uvijet US ink, with CMYK, light cyan, light magenta, light black, orange and white in the standard ink set. The lights and orange expand the colour gamut to match challenging Pantone and corporate brand colours, while the highly opaque White provides coverage, with the ink set delivering excellent adhesion to a broad range of substrates.”
“The new Uvistar Hybrid 320 is the logical next step in this journey and it ensures that printers in the super wide market maintain access to the very latest technology in order to maximize quality and productivity, and grow their businesses,” concluded Ramprasad.
