The new Acuity Select 20 series is available in three channel variations (4, 6 & 8 channels), and includes the option of using light cyan and light magenta.
It will also be available in both the standard (98.4” x 49.2”) and x2 (98.4” x 121.3”) print-bed sizes, allowing users to choose the optimum combination according to usage and application. Furthermore, the roll media option is available to use the printer as hybrid device compatible with roll, sheet and rigid media.
