Agfa Graphics today announced the North America debut of the newest inkjet printing system in the :Anapurna line, the flatbed UV inkjet :Anapurna M2540 FB. Designed to accommodate the growing market needs for printing on rigid substrates, the :Anapurna M2540 FB is a time-saving system featuring a revolutionary quick-change vacuum bed technology, six colors (CMYKLcLm) and white ink. It is priced to attract entry-level purchasers as well as established users switching to the latest UV technology.

With a maximum print speed of 484 ft2/hr, the :Anapurna M2540 FB can print sizes of 8.3' x 5', with substrates up to 1.77" thick. The system's eleven retractable register pins simplify quick and accurate positioning, particularly when working on double-sided jobs.
The versatile :Anapurna M2540 FB is designed to accommodate small as well as large applications. This addresses the growing demand for niche output, such as the production of promotional goods and gifts, coasters and DVDs. The excellent adhesion of the UV-curable ink and its fast and efficient curing means that glass, ceramics and wood can also be printed, making it suitable for architectural and interior décor as well as exterior signs and displays.
"We paid very close attention to details such as the versatile vacuum bed, register pins, and the ability to load and off-load jobs quickly and easily. As a result, the :Anapurna M2540 FB simplifies working with rigid substrates that need to be completely stable during production, yet also permit for quick change-over," said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "The system's powerful vacuum bed has two zones and each has four switchable compartments with a reverse airflow function for swift removal of finished prints and moving of heavy substrates. All printing businesses need to save time, and the new :Anapurna M2540 FB addresses these workflow and production elements for greater overall efficiency."
The printer's industrial build also features ionizer elements to prevent the build-up of electrostatic charge on the media which can affect droplet control and subsequent precision ink lay-down. To protect the print-heads from hitting the media, shuttle safety sensors are positioned on both sides of the print carriage, thus eliminating unwanted strikes.
Agfa Graphics' new production printer will appeal not only to display producers and sign-makers but also to other market sectors driven by the need for high quality, durable, full-color output using UV-curable ink technology. It is as suitable for packaging prototypes, promotional goods' manufacturers as it is for industrial specialists who need fast throughput and the ability to work with a vast range of rigid substrates.
The :Anapurna M2540 FB flatbed solution is part of the :Anapurna family of cost-effective UV-curable wide-format printers. Agfa Graphics also offers its comprehensive :Jeti range of machines and the high-end :M-Press Tiger and :M-Press Leopard inkjet presses.
SGIA Expo attendees can visit Agfa Graphics' booths (#935 & 945) to see various inkjet systems running live. The booths will also feature the Agfa Graphics Application Zone, a comprehensive showcase of real-world applications that creatively demonstrate unusual inkjet output.
