Agfa has earned two more Product of the Year awards from PRINTING United Alliance. In total, Agfa has won a total of 14 Product of the Year awards since its first submissions in 2014. The Oberon RTR3300 won in the RTR UV category (over 80 inches) and the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED won top honours in the UV Hybrid/Flatbed High-Volume Production Class category. The Oberon is making its North America debut at the PRINTING United Digital Experience that will take place online from October 26 to November 12. The PRINTING United Alliance gives Product of the Year awards to solutions that are available for sale in 2020 from its member suppliers. This year, over 200 entries were submitted across 85 categories.
“Winning two Product of the Year awards validates our global team’s dedication to continual innovation and delivering outstanding technology to our customers,” said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing for Agfa in North America. “This recognition showcases the superior performance, reliability and efficiency built into Agfa products with the goal of making our customers more profitable.”
Both the Oberon RTR3300 and the Jeti Tauro H3300 LED feature state-of-the-art technologies. The Oberon is a dedicated 3.3 m roll-to-roll printer with speeds up to 150 m²/h (1,615 ft²) that comes in a four-colour-plus-white and a six-colour version. The dual-roll option is capable of handling two rolls up to 1.6 meters wide each, doubling the total output. The Oberon’s UV LED inks are optimized for flexible media and have earned Greenguard Gold certification, designating that they meet rigorous chemical emissions standards and can be used in sensitive indoor environments such as schools or healthcare facilities.
Jeti Tauro H3300 LED printers are heavy-duty, ruggedly-built “workhorses” that easily handle extreme workloads, multiple-shift operations and 24/7 printing. Suited for a variety of rigid and flexible substrates (e.g. paper, styrene, corrugated cardboard and corrugated polypropylene), the Jeti Tauro H3300 LEDs produce prints up to 3.3 m wide at speeds up to 453 m²/h (4,876 ft²/h) at resolutions up to 1,200 dpi. Featuring a four-colour and a six-colour version (plus white or primer), the Jeti Tauro LED line offers six configurations, ranging from manual to fully automatic and roll printing. Like the Oberon, the Jeti Tauro’s UV inks have also earned Greenguard Gold Certification.
