Fujifilm Europe is pleased to announce the introduction of the new Acuity Advance wide format UV inkjet printer. The new Acuity Advance is the next generation of the highly successful Acuity HD2504, which was launched in April 2007 and has quickly become the fastest selling flatbed UV inkjet printer in the market today. Designed to satisfy those print applications that require high resolution imaging, the Acuity Advance now features an opaque white ink option, to complement the standard four colour CMYK offering. The Acuity Advance incorporates a newly developed printhead array, increasing the productivity above that of the HD2504 whilst still maintaining a near photographic image quality thanks to its unique variable drop technology. Typical throughput in production mode is up to 22m2/hr whilst in high quality mode the speed is 15m2/hr. Utilising Fujifilm Sericol’s latest Uvijet UV white ink, the Acuity Advance delivers unmatched flexibility, allowing users to print a very opaque white under, over or between print layers.
The Fujifilm Acuity Advance UV inkjet printer retains the same dimensions and print area as the Acuity HD2504 of 1.25m x 2.5m, and prints onto substrates as thick as 48mm. Additionally, an optional roll-to-roll module is ideal for printing onto all types of flexible media.
The Acuity Advance will be unveiled at the SGIA tradeshow, October 15th, on the Fujifilm Sericol stand. Commercial shipments will commence in November.
Fujifilm Corporation’s goal is to create products and services of the very highest quality that contribute to the advancement of culture, health, science and industry.

With core values of quality, integrity and trust, a world-class team of people and a commitment to the environment second to none, Fujifilm’s ultimate aim is to enhance the quality of life for people everywhere.
