Onset R40i

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 400m2/hr.

Onset R40i at a glance:

Onset R40i is an ultra-high quality UV inkjet flatbed printer capable of delivering high production speeds.  Using a 14 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.  Built using Inca Digital's unique Scaleable Architecture, a truly modular design, which allows the end user to change both the productivity and colour configuration on-site to match changing business needs throughout the life of the printer.

  • Dedicated flatbed with a print area of 3.22 x 1.6m
  • Class leading near-offset quality at high throughput speeds up to 400m2/hr
  • Reliable Fujifilm Dimatix Q-Class printheads
  • Available with 4, 6, or 8 channels with lights and whites using class-leading Fujifilm Uvijet inks for improved tones and graduations.
  • Onset R40i can print white over, white under, or even use white as a spot colour for part of the image
  • 25 zone vacuum table minimises bed masking, shortening setup times
  • Sophisticated mechanical substrate height detectors deliver improved accuracy and reliability to help protect both the substrate and the printheads
  • Range of material handling/automation system options
  • Onset R40i is Inca's 7th generation of moving flatbed technology, build quality and know-how deliver excellent results and unbeatable uptime

The Onset R40i has been developed to satisfy the higher levels of print resolution expected by offset customers.  Onset R40i uses a 14 picolitre drop size which provides near-photographic image quality at speeds up to 400m2/hr.

Dedicated flatbed

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.

Full-width printhead array

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 R40i uses an optimum fixed drop size which produces excellent quality at high speed print modes.

Satin to gloss finish

Choice of print finishes from low glare satin to high impact gloss.

Built for high performance

Linear motors and vibration free air bearings for smooth and rapid positioning of the print carriage achieves uniquely accurate ink drop placement. Onset R40i is Inca Digital's 7th generation of moving print bed technology.

Full-width UV lamp system

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.

Automation options

A range of powerful, efficient material handling systems both semi-automatic and fully automated designed to deliver the productivity required for all business types.

Uvijet inks

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.

Ease of use

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.

Intelligent print quality management

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.

Intelligent material height detection

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.

Intelligent cleaning

Sensors monitor the amount of UV light exposure around the print carriage and control the cleaning cycles in between prints to maintain optimum performance.

Reporting software

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.
