Acuity Ultra R2


The new blueprint for superwide printing 

Key Features

The Acuity Ultra R2 has a whole host of features to maximise your productivity and quality.

High-quality, high-performance printheads

3-level greyscale printheads deliver 3.5 pl native drop sizes up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, making use of 2,656 nozzles arranged across a width of 108 mm.

High-performance Uvijet GS and AU inks

New, high-density inks deliver superb colour vibrancy and a
wide colour gamut. Excellent inter-coat laydown produces
solid backlit colours and prints. The inks also do not exhibit
cracking when folded due to the low ink build. The new high-density
inks are delivered using 3.5 pl printheads, resulting
in a very low film thickness and ultra-low ink consumption,
resulting in very low cost-in-use and higher profit per print.

Water-cooled vacuum table

A unique chilled vacuum table maintains the substrate temperature while printing and allows the use of thin heat-sensitive substrates, reducing media shrinkage and wrinkling.

Mechanical substrate detector

The Acuity Ultra R2 is equipped with media sensors positioned under the rear media tension rollers. The Acuity Ultra R2 5000 is equipped with 3 sensors. The Acuity Ultra R2 3200 is equipped with 2 sensors.

The media sensors detect when media is loaded onto the machine, and alert the operator if there is a fault with the media loading, for example if a roll of media has run out, or the media is not tight. The sensors use ultrasonic detection technology, and will work for all media, including clear media.

Auto media thickness and position measurement

The Acuity Ultra R2 is equipped with a media detector mounted on the carriage. This is used to determine the position and thickness of the media.

Ink spitting to minimise machine downtime

The Acuity Ultra R2 is fitted with a spit function designed to reduce machine downtime. This maintains the print quality and helps to increase the overall consistency of the printed results.
