Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Yasunobu Nishiyama, Managing Director, Fujifilm India Pvt.

Ltd.

Several innovative technologies come together in the Uvistar Hybrid 320, providing a breakthrough in speed, quality and versatility that can be achieved from a hybrid machine, setting the Uvistar Hybrid 320 apart from the competition.

The first innovation is the use of Fujifilm Dimatix Q-Class printheads and VersaDrop™ jetting technology. These heads enable the press to image in greyscale with droplet sizes ranging from 10–30 pl, which produce the finest details at the fastest speeds. Taking full advantage of nine ink channels, the Uvistar Hybrid 320 produces outstanding image quality with the inclusion of orange ink increasing the colour gamut by 30 per cent.

Another Uvistar Hybrid 320 innovation is its patented tri-lobal belt and six-zone intelligent vacuum system. This system delivers best-in-class media handling and ensures that all types of substrates track accurately in roll or flatbed mode. Additionally, a dancer bar with spreaders keeps even the most difficult roll media from wrinkling before it enters the print area. Rear pinch rollers engage as rigid material moves from the print area on to the exit tables.

The Uvistar Hybrid 320 also has a ‘continuous board’ capability that increases productivity when feeding multiple sheets of the same stock during production. This feature offers time savings between sheets as the print carriage continues moving. No time is lost due to the carriage returning to its ‘park’ position, requiring the job to be started again.

The wide colour gamut of the Uvistar Hybrid 320 is made possible thanks to Fujifilm’s new Uvijet US high performance ink, with CMYK, Lc, Lm, Lk, Orange and White in the standard ink set. The lights and Orange expand the colour gamut to match challenging Pantone® and corporate brand colours, while the highly opaque White provides excellent coverage, with the ink set delivering excellent adhesion to a broad range of substrates.
