Redacción AlabrentBoasting an almost 70% increase in printing speed compared to its predecessor (in Production Mode), the newest version of the 3.2 m Anapurna H3200 emerges as a serious step-up for sign shops and digital printers, empowering them to swiftly tackle a wide range of print jobs.
“We are excited to unveil the next generation of the Anapurna H3200”, says Philip Van der Auwera, Product Manager Sign & Display at Agfa. “Since the debut of the first Anapurna over two decades ago, the printer family has undergone multiple enhancements and expansions. Renowned for its exceptional versatility and unwavering reliability, the new version of the Anapurna H3200 now combines these attributes with a boost in productivity and improved quality. This step underscores Agfa’s commitment to innovation and delivering top-notch solutions that align with the evolving needs of our customers.”
Like its predecessor, the Anapurna H3200 features a six-color plus white ink set and UV LED curing. However, both the print shuttle and print engine itself have been redesigned to achieve a significant productivity increase. The fast-firing print heads ensure rapid throughput – up to 66 m²/hour in production mode – and superior print quality on flexible and rigid materials alike. Additionally, the printer’s newly implemented continuous board feeding capacity enables efficient printing on rigid materials, with the capability to print up to four boards printed simultaneously.
The enhanced print shuttle also contributes to improved image quality, particularly noticeably in darker solid tones. The Anapurna excels in delivering high-quality prints across a spectrum of applications, from uncoated rigid media like corrugated boards and plastics to roll media such as film, vinyl, banners, canvas, and coated textiles. Its GREENGUARD Gold-certified inks deliver high color vibrancy and a broad color gamut, while Agfa’s patented Thin Ink Layer technology ensures minimal ink consumption.
The new Anapurna H3200 is equipped with a protective closure. This redesign not only gives the printer a fresh look but also contributes to a safer working environment.
Additionally, Agfa will showcase the advanced capabilities of the new Anapurna hybrid printer at FESPA in Amsterdam (The Netherlands, 19-22 March). It will be featured alongside Agfa’s high-end Tauro H3300, HS, which boasts a varnish printing option for enhancing prints, and will be equipped with the award-winning Flex roll-to-roll system, a compact module that boosts printer uptime by enabling seamless transitioning from rolls to boards or sheets without the need for undocking.
