Fujifilm appoints Colm Garvey as European Dealer Manager in push to find new markets for the Acuity Prime
May 13, 2022
Fujifilm’s award-winning flatbed printer is part of its ‘new blueprint for wide format’ concept announced in 2021
With 13 dealer agreements in 7 European countries already agreed, Fujifilm is on the hunt for more partnerships to help boost its Acuity Prime sales even further. To help achieve this, the company has appointed Colm Garvey as its European Dealer Manager for wide format products.
Garvey, who is part of the Fujifilm wide format inkjet systems business, comments:
The Acuity Prime was revealed to the world in mid-2021. This stylishly designed new flatbed prints at unprecedented speeds with exceptionally high quality onto a range of rigid and flexible media, and offers excellent versatility, value and ease-of-use at a superb price point, to achieve a fantastic ROI.
A new ink system – Uvijet HM – has been formulated to provide outstanding adhesion to a broad range of substrates while also producing a wide colour gamut. The new ink range is optimised to produce high quality, vibrant images day-in, day-out. A new jettable primer improves adhesion still further for particularly challenging substrates. This removes the need for the offline pre-treatment of media before printing, saving time and money. The machine also features a printable area of 2.54m x 1.27m and can accommodate media up to a thickness of 51mm.
Careful consideration has also been given to operational ease-of-use. Multiple practical benefits for both operators and service engineers have been built into the design, making the day-to-day operation of the printer as straightforward as possible. One such feature is the media loading pins, which can be operated with the touch of a button, allowing for pinpoint media placement precision and exceptionally accurate print registration from job-to-job.
The five-part media zone system, based on common media sizes, vastly reduces the amount of masking required. This means job set-up times can be sped up considerably. The Acuity Prime 20 is available with four, five or six ink channels, while the Acuity Prime 30 can be configured with up to seven. Both models will be showcased running live on the Fujifilm stand at FESPA 2022.
