Impulse Graphic & Display Solutions (Mississauga, Ontario) has expanded its wide-format portfolio with Fujifilm’s Acuity Ultra, a 5-metre (197-inch) Superwide UV Press featuring exceptional cost-in-use for outputting high quality interior and exterior graphics. “We push the limits,” said President Alex Cachia. “We’re a unique print service provider with clients in various industries – including automotive, food service and pharmaceuticals – that have high expectations. The Acuity Ultra has absolutely helped us within the sales process to win new opportunities.”

Fujifilm’s Acuity Ultra offers increased size and improved print quality to make the production of high-end interior and exterior graphics much more profitable. The newest Superwide UV printers from Fujifilm (its Acuity Ultra Series) are available in a 3.2 meter (126”) and 5-metre version. Featuring impressive cost-in-use, Acuity Ultra gives print providers the power to profit from interior and exterior applications where high-impact, near-photographic quality is required, said the OEM. “With a 3.5-pl drop size ensuring the highest possible print quality, the grand-format Acuity Ultra is particularly ideal for the high-end indoor display market, especially for luxury brands – with quality equal to or better than litho or other wide-format printers.”

Impulse is outputting on a variety of substrates such as custom-made interior wallpaper, mesh and fabric, with many jobs running three-up. “Quality is number one for us,” Cachia added. “We don’t sacrifice quality for anything. Previously, we were limited to printing on mostly rigid substrates. Now, with the Acuity Ultra, we’re able to provide flexible, grand-format applications for our clients. And, with regard to shipping and packing costs, we’re able to offer them a significant savings with respect to lighter and more flexible substrates, which are also recyclable.”

Fujifilm’s Acuity Ultra Series offers increased size and improved print quality to make the production of high-end interior graphics in particular, much more profitable.

With the 5-metre Acuity Ultra, Impulse now has the capability to expand and broaden its client base, and further add to its line-up of well-known brands – as they don’t have to rely on outsourcing and are able to maintain printing in-house while reducing set-up costs and preparation times. “We’re winning many new opportunities with the robust Acuity Ultra, making Impulse a unique print service provider due to the massive format size, multi-roll options and impressive speed,” said Cachia. “The Acuity Ultra gives Impulse the ability to profitably create exhibition graphics, point-of-purchase displays, high-value graphic art, and indoor backlit displays. Without question, the print quality of the Acuity Ultra stands out from any potential competitor in this segment. Like any business leader, I rely on a great combination of talent and technology. I’m blessed with a great staff, and we all live and breathe within the print industry. The addition of the Acuity Ultra enables us to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations, job after job.”
