Agfa’s new flatbed and roll-to-roll wide-format UV inkjet printers, the Jeti Mira and Jeti Tauro, will have their European debuts at Fespa 2015 in Cologne.

The Belgian manufacturer will also showcase new UV inkjet inks for flexible and outdoor applications and the latest versions of its Asanti workflow and Asanti Storefront web-to-print software packages at the exhibition.

The Jeti Tauro is a 2.5m-wide hybrid flatbed and roll-to-roll UV inkjet printer, while the 2.7m-wide Jeti Mira is billed as a “true flatbed” although it is available with a dockable roll-to-roll option to enable printing on flexible media. Both devices are equipped with Ricoh’s 7pl Gen 5 printheads and come in a standard six-colour configuration with optional white, varnish or primer on the Jeti Mira, and optional white, double white or white and primer on the Jeti Tauro.

The Jeti Mira features a moving-gantry architecture and split-vacuum table featuring six vacuum zones, with automatic and independent control of the front and back zones. 

Agfa Graphics VP Inkjet Dominiek Arnout said: “We promised a series of new state-of-the-art products in the course of 2015 and we are happy to deliver. We truly believe the market will embrace these two new systems that make ultimate use of our dedicated ink technology and our tailored sign & display workflow.”

Agfa’s new AJ UV G5 FA ink is said to be a general purpose ink for a range of applications that can then be individually enhanced for specific applications and production requirements.
