Be Digital, based in Madrid, Spain, showed several new inkjet printers at this year's Viscom Paris show: BD Terminator, Marabu, and Vancat.
The BD Terminator is a drop-on-demand piezo-electric printer with 360 nozzle piezo heads. It provides 6-color or CMYK x 2-color printing with SolBejet nonaggressive solvent inks and dynamic variable- dot imaging. The 90-in. machine offers a 4-stage heating control system for increased print quality and wider media compatibility. In addition, resolutions range from 360 x 360 to 1440 x 1440 dpi and speeds from 64 sq ft/hr in quality mode to 376 sq ft/hr in draft mode. Be Digital claims durability up to 3 years outdoor, as well as water-, scratch-, and UV-resistance. The Terminator produces P-O-P displays, banners, signage, long-term graphics, building and construction barriers, vehicle graphics, and more.
The Marabu is a 64-in., 6-color, rollfed solvent inkjet printer designed to print outdoor banners. It features resolutions up to 720 x 720 dpi and, at 4 passes, outputs at a rate of 172 sq ft/hr. The Marabu incorporates 3 air dryers for very fast drying, a four-mode rewinding system, and inks in 1-liter cartridges.
The prototype for the Vancat UV printer is a 98-in. roll and flatbed inkjet. It utilizes UV-curable inks in a 3 x 4 or 2 x 6 configuration with 12 Spectra 256 nozzle heads. The Vancat has a maximum resolution of 600 dpi and, at that resolution, reaches speeds of up to 538 sq ft/hr.
