Higher-resolution version of Inca Onset S40i, with output quality comparable to offset litho
3rd June 2013 – At FESPA 2013 (25-29 June, ExCel, London) Inca Digital Printers and Fujifilm will launch an ultra-high-quality flatbed UV inkjet printer - the Inca Onset Q40i.
The latest addition to the Inca Onset series, the Inca Onset Q40i has been developed to address the growing market for an ultra-high-quality flatbed device, printing onto media up to 3.14m x 1.6m (123.6 inches x 63 inches) and up to 50mm (2in) thick. Using the latest Fujifilm Spectra Dimatix QS10 printheads, the Inca Onset Q40i delivers a 10 picolitre drop size, compared to the 27 picolitre drop size used on S40i model. The resulting 1200dpi apparent resolution produces ultra-crisp images, fine lines, sharp text and smooth tonal graduations, the high resolution Inca Onset Q40i prints up to 310m2/hr, equating to 62 full-bed sheets per hour.
"The Inca Onset Q40i combines outstanding quality with high-volume capabilities for critical print applications such as backlit cosmetics displays, fashion and other closely-viewed graphics," says Heather Kendle, Inca Digital Marketing Director. "With an output quality comparable to offset litho married with Inca Digital’s on-going commitment to delivering flexible, high-productivity solutions, we believe that the Onset Q40i will attract considerable attention."
Duggal Visual Solutions, based in New York City, is the first beta test partner of the Inca Onset Q40i. "Because of our location in New York and our trendsetting clientele who push creative boundaries, we are fortunate to know the demands of the industry better than anyone. We have years of experience assessing which machines are capable to satisfy and exceed those demands," explains Michael Duggal, CEO of Duggal Visual Solutions. "Without question the Inca Onset Q40i, and the engineers behind it, are exceptional and breaking new ground."
With the launch of the four and six-color Inca Onset Q40i there will be 20 different configurations available in the Inca Onset range, offering the market a choice of productivity and quality which enables companies to pick the right model, at the best price, performance and, therefore, return on investment (ROI) for their business.
Supplied by Fujifilm, Inca’s exclusive global distribution partner, the new Inca Onset Q40i will make its global debut on the Fujifilm stand at FESPA (F10S).
