Fujifilm announces new LED UV inkjet printer “Acuity LED 1600 II”

Features improved productivity and enhanced image output

September 11, 2015

FUJIFILM Corporation today announces the introduction of a new version of its highly successful Acuity LED 1600 wide-format LED UV inkjet printer, with the new Acuity LED 1600 II benefiting from improved productivity and enhanced image output.

The Acuity LED 1600 is a versatile wide-format LED UV inkjet printer launched in 2012 which has gained wide market acceptance due to its ultra-high quality, its ability to print a wide range of roll and rigid media, and its application flexibility. The simultaneous multi-layer printing with white and clear inks has also allowed print service providers to improve production efficiencies while offering the ability to create new value added print applications.

The Acuity LED 1600 II features a new fast printing mode of 33m2 (355 sq ft) per hour, which is 50% faster than the previous model, addressing customer demands for faster job turnarounds and lower output cost. Furthermore, the addition of the automatic jetting calibration function based on printhead gap and the vacuum mode has improved the printer's media adaptability, thereby expanding its applications and reducing media loss.
