Novus Imaging has introduced its first printer: the Synergia H hybrid press. The 126-in. Synergia is available in two models: the AQ and UV (indicating the type of ink used). Both offer: 2400-dpi apparent resolution; Spectra Q class printheads with a 10-30 pL variable drop; 4-color standard ink system (optional colors include cmW, orange, gray, red, and blue); the ability to handle media up to 2-in. thick; iPad integration; and a Caldera Grand RIP+.

The Synergia H/AQ features the company’s new AquEpoxy inks, which are water-based epoxy inks and environmentally sustainable. Novus reports the inks offer superior adhesion, long-term outdoor durability, and low maintenance requirements. Print speed of the Synergia H/AQ ranges from 1500 to 2500 sq ft/hr.

The Synergia H/UV utilizes UV27 UV-curable inks and offers speeds from 700 to 120 sq ft/hr. It can be field-upgraded in speed and ink type to the H/AQ.

Price: $649,000 on the Synergia H/AQ; $525,000 on the H/UV. The H/UV is shipping now, and the H/AQ will be available in the spring of 2012.

Meanwhile, PrinterEvolution, a Novus sister company, has announced the Evo33-U upgrade solution for the EFI Vutek 3360 printer. The upgrade of an existing 3360 unit comprises: a revised ink-delivery system – with either water-based AquaSub33 dye-sub inks or LolSol33 biosolvent inks (60% natural renewable materials, no HAPs) – as well as industrial-grade variable-drop printheads; a motion-control system; new updated electronics; and a new Windows 7 computer with new interfaces. Quality print speed on the upgraded printer is 1300 sq ft/hr, reports the company. PrinterEvolution can also provide a fully upgraded Evo33 printer to shops that do not have existing 3360 printers.

Price: $199,000 on the Evo-33-U upgrade kit; $239,000 for a fully upgraded Evo33 printer.
