Features

Superior print quality

The high-quality print heads of the Jeti Tauro are equally divided over eight color bars. Accurate dot positioning is achieved thanks to the precise mechanical mounting of the heads, as well as smart drop formation and velocity control. Agfa Graphics' matched component approach guarantees that the UV-curing dose is perfectly tuned to the UV-ink sensitivity, preventing unwanted imaging artefacts due to under- or over ink fixation. The use of sophisticated gradient and masking algorithms results in outstanding print quality in all modes.


Outstanding Productivity

The Jeti Tauro achieves high productivity levels thanks to the print shuttle consisting of 32 fast-firing Ricoh Gen5 heads, each with four nozzle rows for two colors per head. Agfa's fast-curing inks and dedicated wave form are designed to work in perfect harmony with these print heads, resulting in high productivity levels while maintaining superior quality.


Advanced Automation

The Jeti Tauro comes standard with manual media loading tables, which are perfect for smaller runs. However, it can be upgraded with a semi-automated board feeder and stacker, reducing idle time and increasing production efficiency. Depending on the media size, this results in productivity gains of more than 30%. Parallel board printing will boost productivity even further.
Production efficiency is also enhanced by the integrated Asanti workflow software, characterized by fast image rendering and precise color management. Asanti integrates and enhances all processes from pre-press to operation of the Jeti Tauro printer and even to a comprehensive web-to-print service if required. The media database saves time by remembering the system settings specific to different media.


Reliability

The Jeti Tauro features a robust build, perfect to cope with extreme workloads and 24/7 printing schedules. The vacuum-belt drive features excellent motion control for extreme dot positioning accuracy no matter what media has been loaded. The realities of uneven substrates are acknowledged with shuttle safety sensors that stop collisions, reducing potential downtime and printing errors. The Jeti Tauro is standard equipped with an antistatic device to eliminate static charges which negatively impact dot positioning accuracy.

Applications

The Jeti Tauro will print on virtually everything: Banners, posters, signage (traffic, industrial info…), exhibit graphics, POP, mock-ups, back-lit, front lit, self-adhesives (labels). Also niche applications: DVDs, wood, art reproductions, personalized object printing (e.g. mouse mats), party gadgets, architectural and interior decoration, ceramics printing, lenticular printing…


Inks

Vivid printing with top-quality inks

The Jeti Tauro is designed for use with top-quality UV-curable inks from Agfa Graphics, which deliver fast curing, a wide color gamut and high color vibrancy for the most demanding wide-format indoor and outdoor applications. Offering very good adhesion on difficult substrates, these inks - both white and color - are the best choice for a wide range of applications, offering high image longevity and outdoor resistance. On top of that, our inks jet with extreme reliability, delivering the same high-quality results batch after batch.


Thin ink technology for nicer prints at a low cost

Thanks to the high-pigment load, the ink consumption per square meter is low. This so-called 'thin ink layer' pigment dispersion technology saves costs and results in nicer looking prints. Agfa's inks deliver the highest quality prints with the lowest ink consumption per square meter in the industry.


Outdoor durability

The Jeti Tauro supports the use of three dedicated Agfa Graphics ink sets. Standard, it comes with Anuvia HDC inks, which cover a very wide application scope. For long-term outdoor applications, where the focus lies on durability and weather-resistance, Agfa Graphics offers a dedicated set of inks. The same goes for flexible applications with a stretch factor of more than hundred percent.


Advanced white printing and ink management

The Jeti Tauro prints white in multiple modes (e.g. pre-white, post-white, sandwich) on rigid media and even does pre-white printing on roll media. The stirring functionality ensures the white ink in the bulk tank is in motion at all times. There are also constant recirculation flows along the ink lines, all the way to the temperature-controlled printer heads, so that there is no chance of ink resettling and lines becoming blocked or clogged.


Primer option

Difficult substrates such as polypropylene, PMMA/acrylic or polystyrene can pose adhesion and durability challenges in inkjet printing. With the primer option, primer can be quickly applied to create excellent surface tension for better results, either as a 'fill' (the whole area) or 'mask' (printed areas only). The UV-cured primer formulation is specifically designed for optimal results with the Ricoh Gen 5 heads on the Jeti Tauro. And as the primer is applied in low-coverage percentages, it hardly influences the cost per square meter produced output.


Workflow

Powered by Asanti Workflow

The Jeti Tauro is enhanced when it is part of a full system from Agfa. The smart and user-friendly Asanti software streamlines workflow by dramatically reducing the margin for error and shortening pre-press procedures. It significantly simplifies not just the printing process, but the entire business process, delivering maximum productivity.

The Asanti GUI works with improved visualization of the job layout and positioning: operators can see exactly what they are printing. Extra accuracy is provided through the bi-directional communication with the Jeti Tauro printer. All the necessary production parameters that were specified during job preparation are picked up by the engine, thus avoiding potential mismatches between file preparation and output. The GUI offers access to key print parameters to make sure any last minute changes are quick and easy to apply. Print progress and even printing time estimations are provided.
