Virtu RS35 and Virtu RR50.
WP Digital, the former unit of Spühl AG (now a part of Wifag Polytype), has released two new Virtu printers: the Virtu RS35 and Virtu RR50.
The Virtu RS35 is a rollfed UV machine that can print on almost any material-- rigid substrates or rolled materials such as paper, foils, PVC canvasses or mesh--up to 11.5 ft. in width, and can accommodate substrates up to 3.74-in. thick.
The RS35 is available with 30- or 80-pl printing modules, and in four color configurations: 4-color (CMYK), 6-color (CMYKcm), CMYK + white, or CMYKcm + white. The printer boasts a top resolution of 1200 dpi and top speeds of 300 sq meters/hr (300 dpi, 80 pl) and 130 sq meters/hr (423 x 500 dpi, 30 pl).
Additional features include an integrated mesh kit to easily switch to interleaving material such as textiles, an interruption-free ink refill system, a vacuum system with individually adjustable chambers, and a substrate feeding and positioning system. Options include an oven for textiles, table in front/rear for rigid substates, an anti-static device, and a camera/monitor.
The Virtu RR50 is a rollfed UV printer that can accommodate flexible substrates up to 16.4-ft wide. As with the RS35, it’s available with 30- or 80-pl printing modules; the RR50 is available in three color configurations: 4-color (CMYK), 6-color (CMYKcm), or CMYKcm + white. It can reach 1200 dpi and top speeds of 320 sq meters/hr (300 dpi, 80 pl) and 150 sq meters/hr (423 x 500 dpi, 30 pl).
An optional reel lift allows the RR50 to be operated in three different configurations: loading from the back and unloading at the front; loading and unloading at the front; and loading and unloading at the back. Other options include a mesh function for interleaving materials; longitudinal cutting device; anti-static device; center support for center winders; and more.
