Lacasse Printing, based in Tecumseh, Ontario, just east of Windsor, recently purchased its second Agfa wide-format printer, an Anapurna FB2540i LED. Lacasse Printing has been servicing the Ontario market since 1952 offering their clients a full range of visual communication services – including sign and display applications, marketing, vehicle graphics, digital and offset printing, custom flags, indoor/outdoor banners, canvas prints and fine art, and even imaged glass and ceiling tiles. Its slogan is “We Print Everything.” With the addition of its second Anapurna, the shop will continue to maintain the highest standards with affordable on-demand printing and faster turnaround times.
Agfa’s Anapurna FB2540i LED is a 6-colour-plus-white high-speed, UV-curable flatbed inkjet printer that prints at speeds up to 96 m²/h. The high-speed UV-curable inkjet system on a moving gantry flatbed is ideal for both step-and-repeat work, and for printing multiple jobs on differently sized media. Borderless printing capabilities avoid an extra finishing step, saving both time and money. Its multilayer-printing feature allows the Anapurna FB2540i LED to print several colours and white-ink layers in one run. The engine delivers high-quality prints on practically any rigid and sheet material. White ink and six colours, with 13-picolitre printheads, deliver vibrant prints that “will give you and your customers a competitive advantage.” A high-density colour printing function makes prints even brighter and more intense. The printer is fitted with air-cooled 16 Watt/cm² UV LED lamps, which results in a number of unique advantages related to generating extra business, cost savings and environmental friendliness. These include a wider applications scope, higher productivity and less power consumption.
