Agfa expands Jeti Tauro series with upgradable model

The Agfa Jeti Tauro H3300 LED S.

The latest member of Agfa’s Jeti Tauro family of wide-format flatbed printers – the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED S (‘S’ for Standard) – is a “favourably priced entry model that will enable an even wider range of printing companies to benefit from one of Agfa’s flagship large-format printers,” said the OEM. The new hybrid six-colour printer, with optional white and primer, has a top speed of 302 m² per hour that can be upgraded to run at even higher speeds. It also features Agfa’s traditional short start-up times, quick and easy maintenance, and productivity-boosting automation options. That means it’ll be available in six possible configurations. Four of these are dedicated to board printing, ranging from manual to fully automatic. The 3/4-automated version makes use of an automatic board feeder, which is particularly convenient for shorter runs and fast, efficient changeovers between various media sizes and types. The two remaining configurations focus on roll printing, with a master roll-to-roll and a light roll-to-roll model. As is the case with all Jeti Tauro models, the Jeti Tauro H3300 S LED is powered by Agfa’s Asanti workflow software, which controls and automates the entire printing process from prepress to finishing, while guaranteeing colour consistency and optimizing ink consumption. The smart Asanti Production Dashboard displays ink and media consumption and printing time for each job and each printer.

“We are committed to inkjet printing and we aim to support our customers by offering them complete and perfectly-matched solutions that make their operations more efficient and productive,” said Reinhilde Alaert, Agfa Product Manager, Sign & Display. “The new Jeti Tauro H3300 S LED is built on the same platform as its bigger brother and marks another step in the expansion of our high-end, large-format inkjet printer family. It covers a wide range of media sizes and types – for boards and sheets as well as rolls – and supports all print jobs with fitting automation options that ultimately enable operators to tend to multiple jobs and printing engines simultaneously. The printer’s upgradability – to the speed of the existing Jeti Tauro H3300 model – makes it an ideal starting point for print service providers’ further growth in sign and display printing.”

Agfa introduced the Jeti Tauro H3300 in the Spring of 2018. This heavy-duty hybrid printer combines award-wining image quality, extreme productivity and low ink consumption, and delivers rigid and flexible prints up to 3.3 m wide at speeds up to 453 m²/h. The original version is available in a four-colour and a six-colour version. The latest S version is available in six colours only. White ink and primer are optional. Both Jeti Tauro versions are available in six configurations.
