“The SpyderX allows more capacity,” said Bob Lush, Vice President of Sales at Anvy Digital. “We’re very pleased with the quality and the speed we are able to achieve on this press. Our clients are also extremely impressed with the output.” With a 126” (3.2 m) width capacity and six colours plus optional white, the SpyderX is available as either a flatbed or a combination flatbed/roll-to-roll system for handling both rigid and flexible substrates. It’s capable of producing a wide variety of output at high speeds of up to 2,476 square feet per hour (230 square meters per hour). Featuring Fujifilm Uvijet XK Ink and Fujifilm Dimatix Printheads, the printer delivers high-speed production with “pinpoint accuracy” while handling a wide range of media and applications.

Anvy Digital’s offerings specifically include indoor and outdoor signage for retail and corporate installations, decals, murals, hanging décor, short-term signage, site signage, banners, flags and tradeshow marketing. “Given our range of applications for both indoor and outdoor, from small to extremely large installations, we need versatility in our equipment,” Lush added.

“We’ve had success with the Onset Q40i flatbed press for many years, and with regard to Inca’s trusted technology, we knew the SpyderX would provide high quality and consistent output from the first sheet to the last,” said Anvy President John Phan. “We wanted a true flatbed as a complimentary addition to our existing Onset Q40i, and the SpyderX is the perfect balance of speed and quality. The addition of white ink on the SpyderX allows us to expand capacity and applications, offering our client base many more options. Our investment in the SpyderX allows us to meet and exceed the demands of our clients.”
