Fujifilm has announced the launch of the Uvistar Pro8, the latest in its series of Uvistar superwide printers.

The Pro8 is a rollfed UV printer with a flatbed option that adds a set of light colors (cmyk) as well as the ability to switch between 4- and 8-color printing modes. It also features: Parallel Drop Size technology to smooth images; an auto media-handling system for rigid media; an automated backlit print option; and a new operator interface. It utilizes Fujifilm’s new Uvijet QN inks, which are intended to meet the growing demands of indoor applications, where viewing distances tend to be closer and rigid materials are more commonly used, the company reports.

Top speed is more than 3229 sq ft/hr; maximum resolution is 600 dpi (1200-dpi apparent). The Uvistar Pro8 can accommodate media up to 150-in. wide and approximately 1-in. thick. The printer will be available in August of this year.
