Set to be launched here: Fujifilm Acuity Ultra
the print plate, meaning no shrinkage. With a throughput of up to 236sqm per hour, the machine is capable of printing on
three rolls simultaneously, as well as printing super-wide format graphics up to five metres in width. In addition, linear motors ensure smooth edge-to-edge printing with no vibrations at the end of the run.
Troy Neighbour, product marketing manager at Fujifilm Australia says, “The Fujifilm Acuity series has long been known for its quality and reliability and, by adding this super-wide model to the range, we are now also offering customers a big step-up in print quality and productivity.
“With the extra width, the option to print on three rolls simultaneously, and the ability to print at high speeds with no compromise on quality, the Acuity Ultra will appeal to larger businesses and major luxury brands.” 21

The company describes Acuity Ultra as 'a high quality, cost-effective, super-wide UV platform for the production of high-end interior graphics and outdoor signage'.
Visitors to Fespa will have seen Acuity Ultra on the Fujifilm booth, with the company saying the Acuity Ultra forms a key part of Fujifilm’s industrial strategy, offering increased size and quality to make the production of high-end interior graphics more profitable. Built around Fujifilm’s UV cured inkjet technologies, the company says
it offers almost photographic levels of quality, with tighter registration and higher production speeds, at a cost that is set to shake up the super-wide format marketplace.
Available in both 5 metre and 3.2 metre models, the Acuity Ultra is available with up to eight colour channels, using a new, high- quality, low film weight Uvijet GS Fujifilm ink. Greenguard approved, Fujifilm says this ink has been especially designed to deliver the highest quality, and is fully emission- compliant for interior graphic display work.
With a 3pl drop size ensuring what the company says is the highest possible quality, the Acuity Ultra is aimed at the high-end indoor display market, especially for luxury brands, with the quality comparable with litho and leading water-based ink systems.
Based around conventional UV technology, it also runs at much higher speeds than LED cured machines, but as the vacuum table is efficiently water-cooled, there is not an excessive build-up of heat on
