Onset S50i

Ultra-high productivity UV inkjet flatbed from the industry standard Inca Onset series with world-leading technology and intelligent control systems.  Produces up to 725m2/h, delivering top quality print, reliability and cost savings.

Onset S50i at a glance:

Onset S50i is an 8 channel, dual CMYK, UV flatbed printer capable of producing over 5000m2 of print in an 8 hour production period.  It is equipped with all the design features expected from the Inca Onset series:

  • Dedicated flatbed with a print area of 3.22 x 1.6m
  • Class leading PoP quality at ultra-high throughput speeds up to 725m2/hr (145 beds/hr)
  • Reliable Fujifilm Dimatix Spectra printheads
  • Class leading image vibrancy from Fujifilm Uvijet inks
  • Range of material handling/automation system options
  • 25 zone print bed minimises bed masking
  • Onboard intelligent features that continually monitor the performance and efficiency of the machine

Onset S50i is based on the new Inca Onset modular design that gives users the option to upgrade or modify their printer by changing printheads, adding to the number of colours installed, or change the level of automation, on-site, in response to business needs.

Onset S50i prints rigid and flexible PoP media with excellent image quality and colour consistency. It meets the application needs of screen, offset and wide format digital printers, delivering ultra-high throughput at like-for-like print quality.

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 S50i 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 S50i uses Inca Digital class-leading 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, semi and fully automated material handling systems are available which still enable quick access to the bed for short-run jobs.

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.

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

Inca Vision is a software-based customer support service that lets Inca remotely and regularly monitor and diagnose a machine to maximise uptime by identifying faults early and helping to minimise on-site repairs.

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.
