The Jeti Mira is a moving-gantry flatbed printer specially designed to offer optimal flexibility. Jeti Mira has up to 2.69 meter wide prints, print and prepare functionality, a dockable roll-to-roll option, two table versions, speed (up to 231 m²/hr), six color, white color standard, highly-pigmented UV inks and two rows of fast-firing Ricoh inkjet printheads. The latest printer upgrade also includes UV LED curing technology, which involves significant advantages.
“Equipped with UV LED lamps for the curing process, the Jeti Mira comes with a number of economical, ecological and business-generating benefits,” said Reinhilde Alaert, marketing product manager, Sign & Display High-End, Agfa Graphics. “LEDs have minimal heat output, for example, which allows for a broader scope of print applications. They also ensure very stable bi-directional calibration, high productivity, significant power savings and consistent output over the lifetime of the system. This all leads to a greater ROI.”
Relying on LED technology, Agfa Graphics’ specially-formulated UV LED inks can print on heat-sensitive substrates such as thin slides, self-adhesive sheets and stretchable PVC materials. Agfa-made UV inks also boast a wide color gamut and high color vibrancy in both indoor and outdoor applications, while their high pigment load and Asanti’s color management optimization ensure low ink consumption.
“At SGIA this year, Jeti Mira was the recipient of a Product of the Year Award, thanks to its high printing quality and low ink consumption, which makes it stand out from the competition,” Alaert said. “All of our UV inks – white and color – offer outstanding, stable jetting performance and deliver the same high-quality results, batch after batch.”
The Jeti Mira can add a dramatic touch to many different applications, including POP displays, packaging, decorative prints and trade show graphics, due to 3D lens printing technology. It adds depth to print results by tuning the size of varnish lenses and the array in which they are printed.
