Inca Digital announced the launch of a new-generation ‘Scaleable Architecture’ platform for the Inca Onset Series of large-format, flatbed UV printers, which are sold globally by Fujifilm.
Onset Scaleable Architecture uses a modular design, developed by Inca, that gives Onset users the power to evolve the productivity/colour specifications of their printers – on-site – to match their budget and changing business needs. “Onset Scaleable Architecture is a dynamic ‘future-proof’ technology that protects a company’s investment for the long term and provides a highly flexible production center that can grow and change with them,” says John Mills, Inca CEO. “Since Inca launched the very first flatbed UV inkjet printer in 2000, we have continued to introduce exciting new technologies that have transformed the market for digital print. This new-generation platform is another significant development and maintains our reputation as an innovator in the world of wide-format printing.” In addition to using Fujifilm Uvijet inks developed specifically for the Onset printers, they incorporate hardware and software technologies that have been developed by Inca including iNozzle mapping; a 15-zone vacuum table to reduce bed masking requirements and, consequently, set-up time for thin substrates; a UV sensor system; substrate height detectors to prevent contact with, and damage to printheads, along with Inca’s variable data Print Run Controller software module and ReporterPro software that gives detailed information about the productivity  of printers.
