Excellent print quality
Providing the benefits of digital with outstanding quality, Acuity B1 can enhance your printroom production with zero compromise on quality. Produce print that doesn’t need lamination or varnishing. Deliver excellent print quality to demanding customers with an eye for detail.
Market-leading Fujifilm Dimatix QFR7, 7pl native drop size and low film weight ensure very high quality that truly rivals offset.
Convenient material size and familiar format
B1 is a hugely convenient, easy-tohandle format. If you use offset or analogue screen processes, you’ll probably be familiar with it. Teamed with full automation, sheets fly off the press; no need to unnecessarily handle large and unwieldy materials.
Fujifilm Uvijet ink technology
Fujifilm Uvijet ink systems are renowned in the industry through Fujifilm’s high productivity wide format printers. Uvijet produces a low-build ink film with excellent coverage and adhesion, highdensity vibrant backlits and a durable finish.
Print a massive range of profit-making applications
With the ability to print on a wide range of flexible and rigid materials up to 10 mm thick, including plastics, Acuity B1 opens the door to a wide range of applications – including eye-catching point of sale materials such as shelf wobblers, merchandising strips, shelftalkers, counter displays, promotional items such as counter mats, decals and product tags, plus much more. LED UV pinning technology provides a choice of print finishes – from satin to gloss – which means with Acuity B1 you can offer your customers the same finishes as you would with screen or offset processes.
UV hybrid curing system
The Acuity B1 design provides a unique hybrid system with LED UV pinning and UV cure. Together with Uvijet KX, this allows for more accurate control of the UV intensity than other systems. This gives you better control over the appearance of your print and a very powerful tool to determine your final print finish.
Simple setup – one operator
Acuity B1 requires only one operator and it’s simple and straightforward
to set up. This means you can keep labour costs to a minimum. A powerful and intuitive graphical interface makes printing even easier.
Other key features
An intelligent nozzle mapping system maintains print quality and mitigates defects even if printhead nozzles are missing or deviating.
Full-width print array
A full-width print array spans the whole width of the print bed, ensuring excellent productivity, outstanding quality print and less textural banding.
Optical alignment system
Acuity B1 boasts a registration accuracy of +/- 0.5mm which is more than sufficient for most applications. In instances were a tighter registration is needed, Acuity B1 can be upgraded with an optical camera alignment system, which increases the accuracy to +/- 0.1mm.
Long printhead service life
The Acuity B1 cooled LED lamp assembly either side of the printhead carriage eliminates stray UV around printheads maximising printhead life and maintaining image quality.
