Agfa’s Jeti Mira 2732 HS LM LED printing system has been named the winner of the 2019 Product of the Year by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) in the UV/Latex Flatbed ($200k- $500k) category.
"The 2019 SGIA Product of the Year competition showcases the best of the best, and Agfa's Jeti Mira LED won a well-deserved jewel in the UV/Latex Flatbed ($200K-$500K) category,” said Ray Weiss, director of Digital Print Programs, SGIA. “Both the judges and the objective scoring gave Agfa a convincing win, and this is a printer that deserves a look at PRINTING United.”
The Jeti Mira features a moving-gantry flatbed designed for optimal flexibility. It’s 8.82 feet wide (2.69 meters wide), features print and prepare functionality, a dockable roll-to-roll option, two table versions, and prints at speeds up to 2,669 ft²/h (248 m²/hr). The Jeti Mira is a six colour (white colour standard) system with highly-pigmented UV inks and two rows of fast-firing Ricoh inkjet printheads. The system’s UV LED curing technology offers minimal heat output.
“Our specially-formulated UV LED inks are ideal for heat-sensitive substrates while at the same time reducing energy consumption, increasing productivity and ultimately yielding a higher ROI in the long run,” said Deborah Hutcheson, Agfa, director of marketing. “Agfa-made UV inks also boast a wide colour gamut and high col-or vibrancy in both indoor and outdoor applications, while our Asanti colour management optimisation ensures low ink consumption.”
The Jeti Mira can be seen in Agfa's booth at PRINTING United (#8242) October 23 - 25, 2019 in Dallas.
