Agfa releases new Anapurna
New printer comes with Anapurna engine but at a lower price point

Agfa Graphics has unveiled the latest machine in its hybrid Anapurna LED series for sign and display: the Anapurna H1650i LED.

The company describes the new 1.65m wide hybrid printer as a smaller version of the Anapurna H2050i LED machine designed as an accessible and cost-effective production tool that combines the latest LED technology with high-quality output.

The new printer shares several features with the Anapurna H2050i LED.  It prints on rigid and flexible media by means of LED curing, which Agfa says results in a lower cost of ownership. It combines this with Agfa’s imaging quality, ink-saving thin ink layer technology, and white ink printing reliability. It requires a smaller financial investment than other Anapurna engines.

Philip Van der Auwera, product manager at Agfa Graphics, says, “The hybrid Anapurna H1650i LED printer was designed as a robust, qualitative and versatile entry-level option for wide-format print service providers.

“Although smaller, it is equipped with features normally reserved for higher-end printers, such as automatic head height measurement, crash prevention and an anti-static bar, thus offering the very best at a reasonable price. Of course, the Anapurna H1650i LED is driven by Asanti as well, which adds to the resulting high-quality and consistent prints.”

Agfa calls its wide format hybrid Anapurna LED engines robust, high-speed workhorses that take on both rigid and flexible print jobs, and excel in accuracy thanks to a reinforced belt drive and shuttle beam, a gradient and multi-layer functionality and six 12-picoliter printheads. The company adds that, fitted with air-cooled UV LED lights that allow printing on thin and thermal sensitive substrates, these printers offer advantages, such as a lower energy consumption, a wider application scope and higher productivity. All engines are powered by Agfa Graphics’ Asanti sign and display workflow software.
