Big Picture

Fujifilm has introduced its new Acuity Advance HS-X2 UV flatbed, which builds upon the company’s existing Advance X2 but dramatically increases output speeds.

The printer features variable-dot grayscale printheads and a new Express mode, capable of reaching speeds up to 709 sq ft/hr. The HS X2 can hit 462 sq ft/hr in Production mode, 325 sq ft/hr in Quality mode and 258 sq ft/hr in Fine Art mode (all speeds are in flatbed mode, without optional rollfed or white-ink modules).

Other HS-X2 features include: a print area of 98 x 120 in. (can print on dual 4 x 8-ft boards); ability to handle substrates up to 1.89-in. thick; CMYK standard (2-liter ink bags); choice of two Fujifilm Uvijet inksets; a dual zoning system with independent vacuum control; and choice of ColorGate Production Server (Fujifilm edition) or Onyx ProductionHouse RIP. A roll media kit is optional for flexible materials as is white ink (both can be added in the field).

Fujifilm reports that the standard X2 UV flatbed remains available.
