Inca Digital announces the launch of the Inca Onset R40LT wide-format, flatbed UV printer. Since the initial Onset launch in 2007, the range of high-end, high productivity Onset printers have set the benchmark in print quality through their use of a full-width array of printheads, eliminating banding. With the launch of the new Onset R40LT today Inca now makes this high level of print quality available to companies looking to invest in a standard mid-range machine.
The Onset R40LT’s ability to develop from a four-color, 265 sqm/hr device up to an eight-color fully specified device in the field gives users a highly flexible printer that can grow with their business, while protecting their investment for the long-term. The Onset R40LT is a more future-proof and accessible option for companies considering a standard mid-range digital flatbed machine, as it is a full-width array printer that guarantees high quality results with no banding at higher throughput speeds than scanning head technology.
The Onset R40LT model can start as a manual 3.14 x 1.6m (123.6in x 63in) full-width array flatbed printer in a choice of four, five or six colors and is capable of 265 sqm/hr print speeds on substrates up to 50mm (2in) thick – equivalent to 40 full-beds sheets/hr. The new Onset R40LT printer has all the intelligent design features of the existing Onset R40i, including 14 picolitre Fujifilm Dimatix Spectra printheads, a 15-zone vacuum table, a UV sensor system and mechanical substrate height detectors, all of which maintain productivity, quality and reliability.
Based on the dynamic Onset Scaleable Architecture platform, the Onset Series now features a choice of 18 different models and three different handling systems to allow companies to tailor the best printer with the best combination of productivity, quality and ink options for their business.
The new printer is available immediately from Fujifilm, Inca’s exclusive global distribution partner, and the first units are already being installed at Imperial in New Berlin, USA and at Daelprinting in Ypres, Belgium.
Jason Stormowski, President of Imperial, says: “The Onset R40LT is perfect for us because it delivers the perfect mix of quality and speed that our clients expect and allows us to grow and add capabilities and capacities as our market grows. The most amazing thing is it can be upgraded right in our facility.”
Arjan D’haene, sales director at Daelprinting, explains: “We are committed to ensure we are equipped with the most advanced print engines available in the market, as it allows us to guarantee consistent, high quality results. Brand owners and retailers are increasingly asking for shorter turnaround times without compromising on quality, and the features offered by the Inca Onset R40LT help us to meet their needs. We were impressed by the outstanding quality delivered by the new Onset R40LT, and have no doubts that it is the best fit for us.”
“By investing in the new Onset R40LT, companies can now join the Onset ‘family’ with the confidence that the printer can keep pace with their business growth or changing production requirements and save them money in the long run,” says Heather Kendle, Inca Digital’s Director of Marketing and Product Management. “Many firms buying a standard mid-range printer will – as their business grows – have to consider replacing it or buying a second machine. But with the affordable Onset R40LT you can increase your throughput and/or quality at considerably less cost and inconvenience.”
