Inca Digital Boosts Flexibility and Productivity of Onset UV Inkjet Printer
New options deliver more speed, gloss and quality modes - plus the ability to reduce costs
Today Inca Digital launches two new options designed to boost the flexibility and productivity of the
award-winning Inca Onset UV flatbed printer. One option provides new print techniques delivering higher
print speeds as well as two new higher quality print modes. The other delivers higher-end gloss, the ability
to improve adhesion on difficult substrates and more versatility with heat-sensitive materials through
reduced power consumption.
The Inca Onset was launched just over two years ago and still remains the world's highest productivity UV
digital flatbed printer printing sizes up to 3.2 x 1.5m (10.5x 5 ft) with a throughput of 600 sqm/hr (6,458sqft /hr).
Incorporating an automated handling system, over 73,000 inkjet nozzles jetting 30 picolitre drops and using the
latest generation Fujifilm Sericol Uvijet ink, the Inca Onset has been designed for speed and is ideal for
companies with high-volume digital production needs. It produces superb quality display graphics economically
for a range of applications including: display POP, exhibition graphics, backlit displays and outdoor signage.
New printing techniques developed by Inca now give the option of a further 16 per cent increase in throughput
up to 700sqm/hr (7,534 sqft/hr), equivalent to 145 full-bed sheets (or 435 60in x 40in posters) an hour.
Alongside the ability to cut job turnaround times and improve production efficiency, this option also allows
companies to print in new quality modes to achieve top quality results at speed.
The Inca Onset has always provided edge-to-edge satin and semi-gloss finish modes as standard. A second
new option now gives users an even wider range of gloss levels to provide enormous choice of print finish.
Included in this option is the latest UV lamp technology which reduces the input power required to cure UV
ink on most substrates. This delivers like for like UV power output with up to 30 percent power input reduction.
It also expands the range of heat sensitive materials that can be printed and cured without risk of cracking,
buckling or surface damage.
"We will continue to push the boundaries of our inkjet technology to give companies the best and most
flexible results from our machines," says Heather Kendle, Inca Digital Director of Marketing. "Quality and
productivity are extremely important to Inca Onset users and these latest options allow them to provide an
even wider offering to their customers very competitively."
The new gloss/power mode and speed increase options announced today are available to existing and new
Inca Onset users. Inca Onset UV inkjet printers are available exclusively from Fujifilm Sericol.
