AEG has made its Fespa debut by showing its Voyager Pro UV-curable series of hybrid roll-fed and flatbed printers. Changeover from rigid to roll materials is said to take less than a minute.
The AEG Voyager Pro LED was shown a 3.2m configuration, printing onto flexible materials, while a 2.05m AEG Voyager Pro was be outputting direct to rigid substrates. A 1.6m wide version is a third member of the series.
With a choice of LED or mercury arc curing capabilities, the AEG Voyager Pro uses Xaar 1002 industrial printheads and offers speeds up to 100m2/hr.
Available with a choice of inksets, the configuration of CMYK in the base model can be augmented with light cyan and light magenta, plus white, clear varnish and metallic ink options. Orange and green or violet and red are available too. Additionally the printers can be configured as double CMYK.
Karim Ladhu, CEO of Image Technology, said: “We believe we have a future-proof portfolio of printers which is designed and constructed for longevity as well as for guaranteed high quality results and fast through-put, and this is backed up by AEG’s three year warranty and full after-care service.”
AEG’s wide-format portfolio currently majors on the Voyager Pro family of printers and its Symphony UV-curable inks, but it also plans to introduce substrates.
UK-based Image Technology is the company responsible for all AEG professional printing equipment and supplies.
