The brand-new Jeti Ceres RTR3200 LED inkjet printing system will make its North America debut at Graphics Canada 2017. The show is being held April 6-8 at the Toronto International Centre. Manufactured by Agfa Graphics in Mississauga, the Jeti Ceres will be showcased at Agfa customer A-click (#5378), the first print service provider in Canada to install the new LED printing system. Founded in 2005, A-Click is a full-service digital printing company that produces wide format graphics to the trade.
The Jeti Ceres is a 3.2m roll-to-roll UV LED inkjet printer that delivers extremely high print quality up to 10.5 feet wide. With speeds up to 2002 ft²/hr, Jeti Ceres is ideal for high-output PSPs looking to reduce operational costs. Capable of unattended printing, Jeti Ceres offers six colors plus optional white and/or primer. Configurable with an optional dual roll and back-up camera, Jeti Ceres can print mesh and porous substrates without a liner. It is powered by Asanti, an automated workflow for sign and display applications.
Over at the Agfa Graphics booth (#5512), show attendees can experience the Canadian-made Jeti Tauro H2500 with ABF that offers best-in-class image quality at production speed. The Jeti Tauro is a 2.5m-wide, high-end, hybrid, six-color UV inkjet printer, plus white or primer. Featuring extremely vivid printing, the Jeti Tauro hits speeds up to 2960 ft²/hr and has multiple automation options. The ABF automatically processes up to four stacks of boards.
“We are proud to be launching the new locally-manufactured Jeti Ceres and demonstrate the two-time award-winning Jeti Tauro at the Graphics Canada show. Our systems provide low ink usage, high print quality, speed and ease of operation,” said Ruben Silva, VP sales and managing director Agfa Graphics Canada.
