Inca Digital has launched the Inca Onset R40LT wide-format, flatbed UV printer. Since the initial Onset launch in 2007, this range of 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 Inca 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-colour, 265 sqm/hr device up to an eight-colour fully specified device in the field gives users a highly flexible printer that can grow with their business, whilst protecting their investment for the long-term, according to the company. Inca says 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 colours and is capable of 265 sqm/hr print speeds on substrates up to 50mm (2in) thick. The new 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'.
“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.”
