Fujifilm has launched the new Acuity Select 20 series at Fespa Digital in Amsterdam.

The manufacturer said the series has been introduced as a replacement to the existing Acuity Advance Select series - though the Acuity Advance Select HS high-speed model will remain available - and retains the advantages of the Acuity UV flatbed printer.

This includes near-photographic image quality, print speeds up to 33.6sqm/hr, versatility and ease of use to produce a wide variety of applications on a range of substrates up to 50.8mm thick.

The range is commercially available with immediate effect and while Fujifilm did not reveal exact pricing details, it confirmed that the cost is similar to previous models in the Acuity Advance Select series. Features of the Acuity Select 20 series include the option of using light cyan and light magenta to further enhance print quality for those producing fine art or photographic images.

The addition of a pneumatic pin registration system is said to deliver quick and easy media loading while an optional automated printhead maintenance system further improves productivity. Enhanced UV lamp technology allows for thinner and more sensitive media to be printed.

With the addition of light inks, the new series is available in three channel variations (four, six or eight channels) across eight new models.  Fujifilm said the series is also suitable for display or signage printers looking to add value and offers mid-volume printers the opportunity to add capacity and improve quality.
