FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division will showcase an impressive line-up of new and innovative wide format solutions to print industry experts at SGIA Expo 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #1119, October 18 – 20, 2018.
Making its North American debut will be Fujifilm’s all-new Acuity Ultra, a cost-effective high speed, superwide UV roll-to-roll press for the production of high-end interior graphics and outdoor signage. The Acuity Ultra Series is available in 126” (3.2 m) and 197” (5 m) versions, giving printers the power to profit from interior and exterior applications where high-impact, near photographic quality is required.
With a 3.5 pl drop size, the Acuity Ultra is ideal for the indoor display market, especially for luxury brands, with the quality comparable with litho and leading water-based ink systems. With its massive format size, multi-roll potential and impressive speed, Acuity Ultra gives you the ability to profitably create exhibition graphics, point-of-purchase displays, high-value graphic art, indoor backlit displays and more.
