The new Inca Onset R50i wide-format flatbed UV printer features fine-drop 14-picolitre Fujifilm Dimatix Spectra printheads and an eight-channel dual CMYK configuration to deliver “superb quality” and 600m2/hr. productivity with automation. Positioned between the 400m2/hr., six-colour Onset R40i and the high-speed 720m2/hr. Onset S50i, the new Onset R50i meets the needs of shops that produce a mix of graphics for long-distance and short-distance viewing, and who want the “best quality and throughput.”

“This new Onset ticks all the boxes for many companies because it extends the range of jobs they can handle,” said Heather Kendle, Inca Digital’s Director of Marketing and Product Management (pictured previously). “Plus, its ability to produce both sharp text and smooth block colours with all the added advantages of digital print flexibility will appeal to companies with XXL offset presses. Early reaction from the market has been extremely positive with installations already underway.”

The full-width array flatbed Onset R50i is supplied with a choice of Caldera or Colorgate RIPs and prints an apparent resolution of 1,000-dpi onto substrate sizes up to 3.14m x 1.6m (123.6” x 63”) and 50mm (2”) thick at a rate of up to 120 full-bed sheets an hour. Depending upon specific job requirements, users can choose between uni-directional, bi-directional and high-quality or high-productivity modes. Designed for easy set-up, it’s equipped with a 15-zone vacuum table, a UV sensor system and mechanical substrate height detectors.

The Onset R50i printer is available immediately from Fujifilm, Inca’s exclusive global distribution partner. Based on the flexible Onset Scalable Architecture platform, the Inca Onset Series now features a choice of 19 different models and three different handling systems.
