:Anapurna M2500i

Overview

Stand out and let Anapurna M2500i differentiate your decoration and communication jobs.

 

2.5m width for a wider range of applications

The Anapurna M2500i adds more versatility to your business as its width of 2.5m expands your range of applications. It produces top quality prints on uncoated rigid media, such as corrugated boards, rigid plastics, exhibition panels, stage graphics and advertising panels, as well as roll media such as film, vinyl and paper, canvas and banners of up to 4.5 cm thick. It can also be used to print niche products such as wood, dvd's or personalized objects.

 

Reliable work horse

Features a robust and industrial engineered concept, fit for sustained higher workloads, and incorporating the latest generation of fast-firing print heads (the Konica Minolta KM1024i), the Anapurna M2500i offers a high throughput while also achieving a high level of print quality. Measured at optimum print shuttle speed, the system produces up to 35 m²/h in six colors production quality*. At that speed you will be able to maintain a high print production on all your substrates, satisfying your most demanding customers. Multiple boards or borderless printing increases productivity even more.

*See the back cover for an overview of the speeds in the different printing modes/quality levels.

 

Top quality on a wide range of roll and rigid media

Thanks to a re-engineered belt drive and shuttle beam, the Anapurna M2500i brings a highly accurate dot positioning and thus excellent image quality, which is further enhanced by the 3-pass mode with gradient functionality. The eight 12 picolitre KM1024i heads guarantee printing of good solids, fine text reproduction of up to 4 pt, good tonal rendering and low ink consumption.

 

Best-in-class Agfa-made inks in the mix

Anapurna UV-curable inks deliver fast drying, a wide color gamut, high color vibrancy and versatile material compatibility for the most demanding wide-format indoor and outdoor applications. Offering very good adhesion on difficult substrates, these inks - both white and color - bring high image longevity and outdoor resistance, making them the best choice for a wide range of applications. As they allow instant curing, prints are ready to handle immediately.

On top of that, thanks to their high-pigment load, the ink consumption per square meter is low. This so-called 'thin ink layer' technology saves costs and results in nicer looking prints.

 

Rely on white

The Anapurna M2500i is ready to work with Agfa Graphics' fourth generation white inks, which are highly opaque. This means you obtain a qualitative white output with low ink consumption on colored or dark substrates as well as on transparent material for backlit or backlit/frontlit applications. Alternatively, you can use white simply as a spot color. Also, the Anapurna M2500i has the possibility to run pre- or post-white concurrently in one production run, greatly expanding application possibilities.

 

Powered by Asanti workflow

Just like all wide-format printers from Agfa Graphics, the Anapurna M2500i is part of an integrated solution, including Agfa Graphics' Asanti wide-format workflow software, which streamlines production processes, increases productivity and maintains consistency across the board. Asanti removes the hit-and-miss elements of print production so that you can integrate all of your pre-press elements and the result is a fully accountable end-to-end quality management solution. Say goodbye to errors and costly remakes.

 

Features

Designed for the greatest possible deployment and convenience

Flawless media handling

Media loading is very straightforward with automated features such as the media registration bar and head height adjustment. The Anapurna M2500i's automatic vacuum system delivers an equal vacuum during the printing process, whether printing roll or rigid materials. This ensures flawless media transport, giving accurate print results at all times. The ring-blower driving the vacuum system is built in in the printer, reducing the noise to a minimum for even more user convenience In addition, the Anapurna M2500i incorporates a set of shuttle safety sensors to prevent print heads from touching and damaging the substrate.

Last but not least, the ionization bars see to it that there are no electro-static loads on the substrate, ensuring optimum ink droplet control and thus the highest print quality.

 

Multiple board or borderless printing

Multiple board printing is possible to maximize your productivity even more. The borderless printing feature makes post-finishing superfluous.

 

Automatic board feeder

The printer can have an automatic board feeder added in order to increase productivity substantially. This optional automated board feeding table provides an automated solution for volume printing of small board sizes (up to five boards can be printed in parallel).

 

Ink monitoring

During production the ink levels are monitored by the automatic ink refill system. The ink (re)filling system can be accessed easily, enabling a spotless refill of your ink containers.

The white ink is managed by a fully separate system (circulation, under-pressure regulation and cleaning circuit). The tank containing it is equipped with a stirring mechanism to keep the ink properly mixed at all times.

 

Convenient operator interface

All settings are conveniently arranged in a powerful straightforward graphic user interface on a swivel-arm mounted touch screen. Printed files are being spooled, viewed and stored by an internal bitmap server with a HD of 1 TB for ripped images for fast spooling and secure transfer of big amounts of data.
