A suite of new technology arrives at BAF Graphics
Tuesday 3rd May 2011
During what has been a busy few months, we have also been updating our production capabilities with new technology that will dramatically increase our capacity and add new production techniques.
Oce Arizona XT550
The OCE Arizona is an extra large true flatbed device producing imagery of exceptional quality and at high speeds. Near photographic quality prints with sharpness only before seen at resolutions of 1,440 dpi or higher are produced using technology that can achieve a variable droplet size as small as 6 picolitres for fine detail with smoother gradients and quartertones and as large as 42 picolitres for uniform solid colours.
The Arizona utilises UV curable inks in CMYK with the addition of White as an under-spot, over-spot and as an inter-layer for true reverse prints for both front-lit and back-lit applications from the same print.
Its flatbed architecture can be used to produce extra-large prints on rigid sheet material up to an area of 2000mm x 3000mm and 40mm thick. It also uses a vacuum system to hold media stationary ensuring accurate registration even over multiple imagine passes.
In addition to being a flatbed device, the Arizona applies the same benefits to its built in roll to roll printing capability producing outstanding quality print to roll media of up to 2000mm in width.
HP Designjet Z6200 Photo
Another exceptional printing device producing impressive near photographic quality prints for both backlit and display applications. Its variable drop technology produces drops as small as 4 picolitres in size enabling images to be incredibly sharp. The HPZ6200 also provides the very latest 8 colour ink system with the addition of a chromatic red, 3 shades of black and a light magenta for truly vibrant coloured prints.
The HPZ6200 is capable of printing onto a wide variety of roll media including paper, white vinyl, banner and backlit materials, up to 1500mm wide by roll length.
ZUND CUTTING SYSTEM
We have also recently added the very latest routing capability to our Zund digital i-cut system. This enables us to rout and cut to shape with exceptional accuracy letter, logo’s and other intricate shapes from rigid sheet material such as acrylic, dibond, wood and foamboard up to 18mm in thicknesses leaving a clean edge.More News
