New Agfa Jeti Tauro
A 100-in. hybrid UV inkjet printer.
Launched at the ISA Sign Expo in April, the Jeti Tauro from Agfa Graphics (www.agfagraphics.com) is a hybrid UV inkjet printer that can print rigid or flexible substrates at speeds up to 2960 sq ft/hr. The 6-color machine, available with optional white and/or primer heads, can print media up to 100 in. wide and can accommodate rigid stock up to 157.5 in. long. Manual loading stands for rigid media are standard with the machine; semiautomatic feeders and stackers are available that Agfa says provide productivity gains of more than 30%. The machine is also capable of parallel board printing. The primer option, designed for difficult to print materials such as polypropylene, acrylic, and polystyrene, improves the surface tension of the substrate and allows for flood or spot coating. Other features include multiple white print modes, gloss and satin modes, and optional ink sets for extended outdoor durability and applications requiring ink stretching of more than 100%.
