FUJIFILM Announces the New Inca SpyderX
FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division (Booth 1529) is announcing the Inca SpyderX, a flexible and powerful flatbed and roll-to-roll UV inkjet press, making its North American debut.
The SpyderX is a powerful and versatile printer that produces a wide variety of output. Using the Fujifilm Uvijet XS ink system developed specifically for the SpyderX, it delivers high-speed production up to 2,476 sqft/hr (230 sqm/hr) with pinpoint accuracy. Utilizing Inca’s in-depth knowledge of core inkjet technologies along with Fujifilm’s market experience, Dimatix printheads and Uvijet ink, SpyderX opens the door to application expansion or short-run specialty work support for print service providers.
“The SpyderX is a new generation of mid-range inkjet printer,” says Becky McConnell, Product Manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “This press is ideal for PSPs that require versatility and speed, while looking to upgrade from legacy printers to experience the benefits of a high end inkjet platform.”
Designed and manufactured by Inca Digital, the SpyderX platform incorporates state-of-theart technology, including FUJIFILM Dimatix printheads, and Fujifilm Uvijet ink. The 126- inch (3.2 m) wide, 6-color plus white SpyderX is available as either a flatbed or a combination flatbed/roll-fed model, for handling rigid and flexible substrates, including PVC sheets, foam board, corrugated, polystyrene, window cling, wallpaper and banner material.
SpyderX allows for both rigid and flexible printing resulting in a wide variety of applications from menu boards to banners to backlit signs and permanent indoor displays. And with SpyderX including light inks (Light Cyan and Light Magenta) in the standard channel configuration, it allows for finished prints with smooth tones and gradients while still printing at remarkable speeds.
The SpyderX standard configuration also includes two white ink channels. The addition of white ink allows for printing on clear and dark substrates, as well as layered printing over or under an image, or it can be used as a spot color. And with Inca software, multi-layer images can easily be built within the printer’s User Interface, maximizing throughput on even the highest quality specialty graphics production.
Inca SpyderX features include:
- High-quality flatbed output up to 1,981 sqft/hr
- High-speed roll-to-roll output up to 2,476 sqt/hr
- iNozzle (nozzle) mapping technology
