Fujifilm North America Corp.’s graphic systems division has announced its line of Acuity and Inca wide-format printers have been certified by Color-Logic, based in West Chester, Ohio.
With this certification, Acuity and Inca press owners using the Color-Logic system can create eye-catching metallic effects that can be incorporated into packaging, signage, displays, and collateral material.
“This certification opens up an entire new market for our press owners,” said the company’s marketing manager for the wide-format inkjet segment, Becky McConnell. “They can offer their customers unique metallic printing for high-end packaging and prototyping applications. In addition, Color-Logic on Acuity and Inca devices allows users to create intricate designs for signage and point-of-purchase applications.”
The certified Fujifilm printers include the Acuity LED 1600, Acuity Select HS and Acuity LED flatbed printers, Acuity Ultra super wide roll-to-roll printer, as well as the OnsetX3 HS from Inca Digital, sold exclusively by the brand in North America.
Color-Logic certifies printers for its system by taking colour measurements across the print run to check for consistency and to ensure printing has the maximum output based on press, ink, and substrates.
“Wide-format print providers looking for new streams of revenue can use this combination of printer and software to create high-value applications for existing and potential clients,” said Color-Logic’s chief technical officer, Richard Ainge. “For example, a print provider using the OnsetX Series printer and Color-Logic software can create the metallic special effects on packaging or displays desired by retailers and brands to grab consumers’ attention.”
