Ultra-high quality dedicated UV inkjet flatbed from the industry standard Inca Onset series with world-leading technology and intelligent control systems. Capable of delivering near-offset quality print at output speeds of 305m2/hr.
Onset Q40i is an ultra-high quality UV inkjet flatbed printer capable of delivering high production speeds. Using a 9 picolitre drop size (compared to the 27 picolitre drop size used on the Onset S40i) up to 1200 dpi apparent resolution can be achieved producing ultra-crisp images, fine lines, sharp text and smooth tonal graduations close to offset quality.
The Onset Q40i has been developed to satisfy the higher levels of print resolution expected by offset customers. Onset Q40i uses a 9 picolitre drop size which provides near-photographic image quality at speeds up to 305m2/hr.
Flatbed design for ease of loading and positioning with rigid materials, with a best-in-class capacity of 80kg and maximum media thickness of 50mm. The 25 zone vacuum table minimises the amount of bed masking, increasing productivity. Dual registration points ensure accurate and simple registration.
With a full-width printhead array, the image is printed with the printheads in a fixed position, not scanning across the media, so images do not suffer from textural banding. FUJIFILM Dimatix Spectra heads have proven their reliability in full production for many years. Onset Q40i uses an optimum fixed drop size which produces excellent quality at high speed print modes.
Choice of print finishes from low glare satin to high impact gloss.
Linear motors and vibration free air bearings for smooth and rapid positioning of the print carriage achieves uniquely accurate ink drop placement. Onset Q40i is Inca Digital's 6th generation of moving print bed technology.
Dual UV curing lamps provide the option to print bi-directionally. The system can also vary the dosage to produce the range of print finishes.
A range of powerful, efficient semi-automatic material handling systems are available which still enable quick access to the bed for short-run jobs.
Using Fujifilm's unique Micro-V ultrafine dispersion technology to maximise pigment loading, the Uvijet range of UV curing inks delivers strong, vibrant, lightfast colours with greater image quality and superior colour gamut.
The addition of a 'machine setup files' function allows a huge number of variables to be captured and reloaded again and again, enabling machine operators to change quickly between substrates.
iNozzle intelligent nozzle mapping system maintains print quality even if print nozzles are missing or deviating which would otherwise be seen as very visible print defects.
The material height detection system ignores small defects in the material surface which do not pose a risk to the print carriage, with reduced stoppages and downtime. It detects substrate lift at multiple points, reducing the risk of damage to lamps and the print carriage, and is unaffected by heat haze from the UV lamps.
Sensors monitor the amount of UV light exposure around the print carriage and control the cleaning cycles in between prints to maintain optimum performance.
ReporterPro allows you to view important aspects of the machine’s operation, including uptime, total prints made, ink usage and nozzle mapping. This is a very useful function for owners and production managers who want to monitor productivity, especially in a shift environment.
