86 • July 2016 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S Product Review HYBRID UV LED PRINTER Agfa Graphics, Elmwood Park, New Jersey, introduces the Anapurna H2500i LED printer, a six-color, UV-curing hybrid solu- tion for printing rigid and flexible media. The high-speed hybrid UV LED-curing inkjet system offers an 8.2' width, and print speeds of 377-614 square feet per hour in Production mode. The Anapurna i-series inkjet systems are equipped with powerful, air-cooled 16 Watt/cm² UV LED lamps. Thanks to their reduced heat emission, the Anapurna H2500i LED can print on a wider media mix, and in particular cope with more heat-sensitive sub- strates such as thin-layer styrene. Unlike with mercury lamps, LED lamps have no warm-up nor cool-down time, and power consumption is drastically lower, which results in a lower energy bill. The white ink function includes pre-, post-, spot and even sandwich white. With the optional automatic board feeder, pro- ductivity can be further increased.

In addition to its speeds, the new technology gives users the benefit of a low acquisition price with significant total cost of ownership advantages. The 1.8m-wide sheetfed, digital packaging press has run speeds up to 87,187 square feet (8,100 m2/hr) and can print on boards up to 6' x 10' (1.8m x 3m) in size. Its double-lane printing feature enables full utiliza- tion of the press's speed and width and increases throughput up to 9,000 31.5" x 23.5" (80cm x 60cm) boards per hour. The corrugated board press prints in up to seven colors, including white, and provides resolutions up to 360x720 dpi, with four- level grayscale imaging. An in-line primer will give customers control over dot gain and ink absorption on different types of corrugated top sheets.

Alongside the more cost-efficient produc- tion of shelving and sales packaging in small and medium-sized job runs, the Rho 130 SPC also supports sampling, customizations and ver- sioning—directly and without setup costs. With the development of a non-hazardous ink system based on Durst Water Technology, Durst is also already addressing the future directives for sustainable packaging prod- ucts in the food retail sector. The Rho 130 SPC is based on the latest generation of single-pass printing systems which Durst is already using in the label printing segment with the Tau 330.

Together with Zünd Cut Center—ZCC, the new cutter is part of a complete cutting/finishing solution that offers the ultimate in performance and productiv- ity—from prepress to final product. Depending on job characteristics and cut contours, the new Zünd D3 is capable of doubling the through- put. The system is largely based on the proven technology of the G3 series. This means superb cutting accuracy across the entire working area, maximum modularity, and user-friendly operation. Furthermore, D3 is capable of handling an equally wide spectrum of materi- als. D3 cutting systems are available in four different sizes ranging from the D3 L-3200 with a working area of 1800 x 3200 mm (71" x 126") to the D3 3XL-3200 with a working area of 3210 x 3200 mm (126" x 126").
