Agfa’s Jeti Tauro uses UV LED curing that yields vivid six-colour (plus white or white and primer) prints, exceptional productivity, and cutting-edge automation for countless rigid and flexible media applications. A robust hybrid UV inkjet printer with an integrated roll-to-roll system, the Jeti Tauro will be especially helpful as its possibilities for high-end sign and display printing are almost endless – including prints of up to 2.54 metres wide and an extremely wide range of applications. Driven by Asanti workflow and optimized to work with Agfa’s high-pigmented, low-ink-laydown UV inks, the Jeti Tauro has 32 fast-firing Ricoh inkjet printheads, each with 4 nozzle rows for 2 colours per head. Gloss and satin modes can accommodate an even larger colour gamut, while enhanced spot-colour reproduction means no loss of image quality or extra ink usage. Optional 3/4 automation is also available to reduce downtime and increase efficiency.
