Accomodates media up to 134 in. wide

Innovative Solutions has introduced its
new superwide outdoor printer"?the ISIJET
3400. This 4-color printer uses 72 piezoelectric
inkjet printheads, solvent-based
pigmented inks in 3.2-l tanks, and a builtin
drying system so prints are dry before
they are rolled onto the take-up reel.

Accommodating media up to 134 in.
wide, the 3400 can simultaneously print
onto two 64-in. rolls to boost production
speed. It boasts speeds up to 1900 sq
ft/hr (with a "cruising/sellable work"
speed of 980 sq ft/hr) and resolutions up
to 360 dpi. The ISIJet 3400 can print onto
a variety of flexible media including outdoor
durable paper and vinyl for use as
billboards, banners, vehicle graphics,
building wraps, and more.

ISI reports that this is an industrial-strength
machine, intended for 24/7 operation
and features an integrated ventilation
hood for direct hookup to a fume-exhaust
system. For ease of maintenance, the ISIJet
has an automated vacuum purging system
that can be used on-the-fly, even during
printing. Options include: roll-to-sheet output,
heavy roll supply and take-up, Wasatch
SoftRIP, and an infrared drying system. List
price: $180,000. (Innovative Solutions Inc. (ISI):
