The new Acuity LED 40 Series of mid-volume UV flatbed printers are an innovative solution for customers in the sign and display graphics industry, offering superior print quality and application versatility with rigid or flexible substrates.

The standard model enables users to print on media or objects of any size up to 49 x 98 inches, while with the X2 (double bed size) model, increases to 98 x 121 inches. The 40 Series also features an added benefit of instant-on for immediate printing, eliminating the need to wait for the printer-to-warm up, which is an added benefit to customers who are not involved in all-day production runs.
