A secure investment in proven LED UV technology
The Acuity platform has been the industry benchmark since 2007 with thousands of machines installed worldwide. The Acuity Ultra R2 features the very latest LED and UV technologies to deliver unbeatable performance, along with the quality and reliability you would expect from Fujifilm.
Exceptional quality in superwide format
With the Acuity Ultra R2, you get the excellent high quality, productivity and reliability our Acuity range is known for, on a massive industrial scale – up to 5 metres wide.
High quality, high performance printheads
3-level greyscale printheads deliver 3.5 pl native drop sizes up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, making use of 2,656 nozzles arranged across a width of 108 mm.
Excellent build quality using industrial-quality components
The chassis is a substantial construction made from welded steel box tubing and solid steel bars, contributing to the 7.7 t and 4.7 t weights of both models. This helps to ensure the printer displays very little vibration and very accurate drop placement.
Solid media transport system ensures accuracy
Two pairs of rubberised rollers both front and back deliver a consistently accurate media feed and provide consistency over long print runs or when accuracy is needed for tiled applications.
Linear-driven printhead carriage delivers superb registration
Linear motors ensure smooth edge-to-edge printing with no vibrations at the end of the run to deliver accurate ink drop placements. This means no loss in print quality at the print edge.
Water-cooled vacuum table
A unique chilled vacuum table maintains the substrate temperature while printing and allows the use of thin heat-sensitive substrates, reducing media shrinkage and wrinkling.
Advanced features to maximise productivity
The Acuity Ultra R2 is equipped with a range of advanced features to maximise uptime and ensure flexible and highly productive printing.
Ink spitting to minimise machine downtime
The Acuity Ultra R2 is fitted with a spit function designed to reduce machine downtime. This maintains the print quality and helps to increase the overall consistency of the printed results
Media crash detectors to prevent printhead damage
The carriage is equipped with media crash detectors on either side. These react to obstructions on the vacuum table to stop the carriage and prevent damage to the printheads.
Auto media thickness and position measurement
The Acuity Ultra R2 is equipped with a media detector mounted on the carriage. This is used to determine the position and thickness of the media.
Mechanical substrate detector
The Acuity Ultra R2 is equipped with media sensors positioned under the rear media tension rollers. The Acuity Ultra R2 5000 is equipped with 3 sensors. The Acuity Ultra R2 3200 is equipped with 2 sensors. The media sensors detect when media is loaded onto the machine, and alert the operator if there is a fault with the media loading, for example if a roll of media has run out, or the media is not tight. The sensors use ultrasonic detection technology, and will work for all media, including clear media.
Designed with the operator in mind
As well as technical enhancements to the Acuity Ultra R2, there is a strong focus to reduce maintenance and improve serviceability for the operator. A new intuitive GUI, smoked Perspex panels allowing the user to view print safely during production, and the integration of clean and dirty working areas to avoid contamination, are all examples of the developments that ultimately save time and money and improve overall price/performance.
Long printhead life minimises costs of consumables
With an impressively long life, you won’t have to worry about replacing printheads as often. Combined with low ink consumption, the long printhead life reduces the hassle and costs associated with replacing consumables.
Multi-roll capability maximises productivity for smaller jobs
With a throughput of up to 400 m² per hour, the machine has the potential to produce huge volumes of work when printing on three rolls simultaneously, as well as printing superwide format graphics up to five metres in width.
High performance Uvijet GS and AU inks from award-winning factory
New, high-density inks deliver superb colour vibrancy and a wide colour gamut. Excellent inter-coat laydown produces solid backlit colours and prints. The inks also do not exhibit cracking when folded due to the low ink build.
Ultra-low ink consumption
The new high-density inks are delivered using 3.5 pl printheads, resulting in a very low film thickness and ultra-low ink consumption, resulting in very low cost-in-use and higher profit per print.
“The combination of the high quality and productivity that the Acuity Ultra offers is exceptional. It’s also incredibly versatile, with low ink consumption.”
Sven Breiter | CEO, Fokina GmbH
Versatility on a massive scale
With its massive format size, 2- or 3-up multi-roll potential, and ability to print on a broad range of materials, the Acuity Ultra R2 gives you the ability to profitably create exhibition graphics, POS displays, high-value graphic art, backlit displays, outdoor displays, outdoor signage and more.
Ideal for high-end indoor displays
The Acuity Ultra R2 is not only ideal for out of home applications such as single billboards and signage, it’s also perfect for high-end indoor displays where close viewing requires images to be exceptionally clear and vibrant. With quality comparable to leading water-based inkjet systems, the Acuity Ultra R2 can propel your business into the luxury brand market.
