Agfa Graphics has announced the latest enhancement to its Jeti AquaJet direct dye-sublimation printer: a new generation of aqueous-based disperse dye AquaJet Pro inks, powered by DuPont Artistri ink technology.

Designed to produce brighter, more vibrant colors and deliver faster throughput on polyester-based fabrics, the AquaJet Pro inks will be made available as a premium inkset for the Jeti AquaJet range in Q3 2010. Existing Jeti AquaJet installations can be upgraded to AquaJet Pro inks.

"The combination of Agfa's direct to textile printers and :AquaJet Pro inks allows us to better meet the needs of the booming digital textile printing market," says Richard Barham, vice president, Agfa Graphics. “Now, we are able to deliver higher throughput speeds thanks to better jetting behavior and the higher gamut of the inks.”
