Increase Speed and Productivity with Agfa Graphics' New :Anapurna M²

Agfa Graphics adds top range model to the :Anapurna family and doubles productivity at the industry highest 
image quality in its class.

Agfa Graphics proudly announces the :Anapurna M² UV inkjet wide format printer. Based on Agfa's 
best-selling, industry award-winning :Anapurna M family of UV inkjet printers, the :Anapurna M² is a feature 
complete heavy-duty industrial UV inkjet system.

Many automation enhancements make the :Anapurna M2 the new trendsetter in the market of wide format 
UV inkjet printing. A unique vacuum strength control system was designed for smooth substrate transport at 
high speeds. Shuttle safety sensors protect the print heads in case of variable substrate height, and an 
ionizing bar prevents electro-static loads on the substrate, ensuring optimum ink droplet positioning and 
therefore delivering the highest print quality. All this comes standard in the :Anapurna M2; it is designed to 
cope with peak production and high volume workloads. The :Anapurna M2 boosts a more powerful fastscan 
motor driving a shuttle with 6 printheads with 1024 nozzles each which provides increased speed. Convenient 
by design, the printer handles roll-to-roll media as well as rigids. Media loading is made extremely 
straightforward with automated media registration bars and head height adjustment.

"The :Anapurna M2 is ideally suited for graphic screen printers, commercial printers, sign shops and photo 
labs that demand high quality", said Willy Van Dromme, Business Line Manager for Wide Format at Agfa 
Graphics. "It is built to be robust with industrial strength. It is thé high throughput UV-ink printer of choice to fit 
for heavy workloads and peak performance with top quality."

The :Anapurna M2 has a maximum media width of 62 inches and uses the latest Konica-Minolta 12 
picoliter print heads offering unparalleled image quality at 720 x 1440 dpi. Both in uni- and bi-directional 
modes, prints are sharp and show high detail rendering and fine text. Printing in the 8 pass uni-directional 
mode delivers output in photo quality. Maximum productivity is achieved in 4 pass bi-directional mode and 
results in an output of approx. 23 square meters per hour.

In combination with the Agfa-made UV-curable :Anapurna ink, :Anapurna M2 offers top-notch photo-quality at 
high throughput speeds.
