Fujifilm has launched its Acuity Select 30 HS series of printers. The two printers in the series, the standard and X2, follow directly on from the Acuity Select 20 series, launched at Fespa, but have added features and print at almost double the speed.
They became available for purchase from 7th September and start at $168,727, $51,916 more than the starting price of the 20 series.
Fujifilm wide-format product solutions manager Steve Cookman said: “This is the next iteration of the Acuity flatbed products. We have worked very closely with Océ over the years, starting in 2007 with the 2504, and this is the fifth iteration of that.
“Every time we launch, the unit increases in productivity. It has always been very high resolution and I guess it has probably led this area of the market for the last nine years.
“Around Fespa, we introduced the 20 series, which has all the channels but just one of each printhead. This will complete the Acuity family offering for the year.”
The extra printhead per channel on the 30 Series means the standard can print at speeds of up to 57sqm/hr and the X2 version prints at up to 64sqm/hr. The standard’s print bed is 2.5x1.25m and the X2’s bed is 2.5x3.1m. Both take various substrates up to 51mm thick.
