Agfa Graphics lanza Launches Hybrid Flagship Jeti Tauro H3300 LED en FESPA 2018
For Fespa 2018, Agfa Graphics makes a bold move with an immersive booth concept that uses virtual reality and interactive sensory experiences to introduce its next-generation inkjet printing solutions. The true stars of the Agfa Graphics booth will be a large array of printed samples that perfectly illustrate what print service providers can achieve with Agfa Graphics’ technology: Extreme Productivity. Extreme Quality. At the same time, Agfa Graphics launches its latest UV LED inkjet hybrid workhorse: the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED. This latest masterpiece of Agfa engineering embodies the extreme new standard in printing productivity and quality.
Unique applications at the center of attention
Agfa Graphics’ booth at Fespa is always a sight to see, but this year, the graphic industry supplier is taking it to the next level.
“We believe that showing the engines themselves is not necessary to exhibit the potential of our printing solutions,” explains Kristof Van Cleemput, Global Communications Manager at Agfa Graphics. “We are confident that our machines can tackle all requests a customer may have, which is why we put a multitude of high-quality, real-life printed applications at the center of attention. They demonstrate the unique potential of our products and will both educate and inspire print service providers that want to make high-impact impressions on their clients. Visitors will be able to see our latest machines, including the brand-new Jeti Tauro H3300 LED, in a virtual operational environment using touchscreens and virtual reality glasses.”
New flagship: the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED
Building on the successes of the Jeti Tauro H2500 LED, Agfa Graphics launches the (even) bigger, sturdier and faster Jeti Tauro H3300 LED – an engine which guarantees both smooth, detailed results and rapid UV LED curing. The Jeti Tauro H3300 LED truly embodies the EXTREME campaign: choosing between quality and productivity is a thing of the past. In addition, it excels at combining award-winning image quality with low ink consumption.
“Those who opt for automation will have fully automated multi-board loading and unloading up to four boards, reducing idle time and increasing production efficiency even more,” explains Reinhilde Alaert, Marketing Product Manager of Sign & Display at Agfa Graphics. “Its extreme speed becomes even more apparent in the roll-to-roll version, which is capable of handling heavy master rolls in single or dual-roll mode for a wide variety of flexible media. With the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED, we can offer the highest possible level of both quality and productivity, thanks to a brand-new vacuum table and Agfa-patented vacuum belt design that keep print media perfectly flat under the print shuttle, guaranteeing precise dot positioning and accurate media transport.”
The Jeti Tauro’s image vividness is created to last, even when subjected to harsh outdoor weather conditions. Due to the high pigment load of Agfa-made inks and Asanti’s ink saving algorithms, ink consumption per square meter is the lowest on the market. The result is an ideal balance between quality, productivity and cost of ownership.
“Among other benefits, LEDs are durable – they generate consistent light output throughout their lifespans of about 10,000 hours,” says Reinhilde Alaert. “Also, the Agfa-developed and manufactured UV-curable inks match perfectly with the spectral emission of Tauro’s LED lamps. This guarantees deep instant curing and delivers dry output, outstanding adhesion on a broad media range, good scratch resistance, perfect color stability, etc.… The fact that the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED relies fully on this technology is truly unique – it’s one of the engine’s many strong suits. Not only that, this hybrid UV inkjet workhorse is capable of producing visually stunning prints on media up to 3.3 m wide at speeds up to 453 m²/h, able to keep going 24/7 and convertible to enable different degrees of automation. It truly is one of a kind.”
Extreme Productivity. Extreme Quality.
Agfa’s printing solutions stand out because of their use of specially-formulated UV LED inks, which are suitable for a wide variety of rigid and flexible substrates. In combination with the company’s Asanti workflow and color management software, these inks produce award-winning prints with the largest color gamut and superior adhesion and durability.
In addition, Agfa Graphics’ patented Thin Ink Layer technology guarantees the lowest ink consumption per square meter on the market, thanks to the inks’ high pigment load, and the unique color management capabilities of Asanti.
This supreme level of quality, combined with the stellar productivity that results from a combination of high-speed printing with a range of automation options, is at the core of Agfa Graphics’ EXTREME campaign, which is reflected in its slogan: ‘Extreme Productivity. Extreme Quality.’ All of these benefits are embodied by Agfa’s latest pride and joy, the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED.
Fespa Global Print Expo is Europe’s largest exhibition for the wide-format print industry. It takes place in Berlin from 15 to 18 May this year. Agfa Graphics exhibits in hall 1.1, at stand A57.
Fujifilm anuncia la primera instalacion en el mundo del equipo Super-Wide Acuity Ultra
UK creative production business, Echo House, is first company in the world to invest in Fujifilm’s new, high-quality, high-productivity, super-wide printer
With the sale confirmed at FESPA 2018, the machine was installed and began operation at Echo House’s premises in Surbiton, Surrey in June.
“We are a design-led business aiming to push the boundaries for our clients,” says Peter Onyskiw, Technical Director at Echo House. “Specialising in every aspect of the creative production process, from design through to fulfilment and installation, our extensive knowledge and experience within the Luxury Goods Retail Market, world renowned Museums, and the Exhibitions sector, allows us to achieve the highest standards, no matter what the challenge.
“We have always invested in state-of-the-art technologies to operate alongside our creative design and experienced project management teams. We offer the complete spectrum of in-house production facilities, from the finest large format print to stunning multi-media fabrication and cutting-edge, large and small format 3D printing.
“We see the Fujifilm Acuity Ultra as the perfect new cutting edge addition to Echo House,” Onyskiw concludes. “It will sit alongside our current specialist print technology to continue offering our clients the finest quality production.”
Available in either 3.2 or 5m widths, and capable of delivering exceptional quality, the Acuity Ultra makes the production of high-end graphics much more profitable than ever previously possible.

Furthermore, the format size, multi-roll potential and impressive speed give it the ability to print these high-value applications quickly and efficiently.
Says Kevin Rhodes, Marketing Applications Manager, Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems: “Echo House has been a valued customer of Fujifilm for a number of years and we’re delighted now to be providing them with a solution to take their large format graphics production up yet another level. With the ability to print at production speeds in excess of 200m2 per hour at a 3.5pl drop size, the Acuity Ultra is set to revolutionise the large format, high-end interior graphics marketplace and we’re delighted that Echo House has been the first to recognise its tremendous potential.”
