The success Echo House has had with a 5m-wide Fujifilm Acuity Ultra since its installation in June 2018 has prompted the company to order a machine still in development. Precise specifications of the new Acuity Ultra are still to be confirmed, but the smaller format model will offer the same print carriage configuration and deliver the same level of quality at comparable speeds as the 5m and 3.2m models currently available. It will be installed at Echo House in January 2019.
“The [5m] Fujifilm Acuity Ultra has proven itself to be a perfect addition,” Mark Cardwell, chairman at Echo House. “We’re using it to print a huge range of quality general signage and POS work, taking full advantage of the 5m width to print super-wide substrates and to print to multiple rolls simultaneously. The ability to print white ink has been fantastic for ultra-high quality backlit applications. The opportunity to directly feed into the development process for the new machine is hugely exciting and gives us the chance to provide even more value to our customers.”
