The IU-1000F is capable of printing on a wide range of substrates and objects at up to 116 square meters per hour.
“It is a powerful solution for the sign and display or print production business that seeks more efficient and faster-turnaround production capability. By offering increased productivity, material compatibility, image quality, ease of use, and all the other aspects of this product, I am confident that the IU-1000F will achieve increased profitability for printing businesses," said Kohei Tanabe, president of the DP Business Division.
In addition to high-adhesion, high-density CMYK UV inks, this large-format device supports White, Gloss and Primer inks to create a wide variety of applications, from signs, displays, backlits and exhibition graphics to custom-designed interior décor applications such as canvas wall panels and furniture.
Equipped with 12 high-performance printheads in a staggered 3-row arrangement, the IU-1000F can print up to 635 x 1800 dpi with variable droplet technology which can simultaneously fire 3 sizes of droplets at high speed.
Printing time for a typical 1220 x 2440mm rigid board averages about 15 boards per hour (48.5 sqm/hr) in the every day “Standard” print mode for typical point of purchase display applications. About 10 sheets can be printed even in the “Quality” print mode (32 sqm/hr).
The IU-1000F employs UV-LED flatbed printing technology to print directly on a huge variety of materials and objects, including rigid boards up to 2510mm x 1310mm, 110mm in height and 45 kg/sqm in weight. The exclusively-developed, high-performance UV inks cure immediately, enabling the IU-1000F to print on substrates such as acrylic, PETG, PVC board, foam board, PC, wood, corrugated polypropylene board, aluminum composite plate, and even on metal and glass that are generally difficult to adhere to by using the Primer ink.
