Agfa Graphics Wins Three Product of the Year Awards for Second Year in a Row at SGIA EXPO 2016

Innovative technology outshines competition in the UV flatbed and hybrid categories

Agfa Graphics has won a total of three Product of the Year awards at SGIA Expo for the second year straight. The brand new Anapurna H3200i won in the UV Hybrid category ($100-500k), the Jeti Mira won in the UV Flatbed ($200-500k) category and the Jeti Tauro won top honors in the UV Hybrid High Volume Production Class category.

The competition recognized the latest equipment and supplies currently on the market that are advancing the specialty imaging industry.

“These awards confirm the dedication of the worldwide Agfa Graphics team and their dedication to bringing high quality, high productivity and innovative technology to market,” said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. “We design our products with the customer needs in mind. The Product of the Year awards validate our efforts to deliver sophisticated products that provide increased efficiency and profitability to our customers.”

The state-of-the-art Jeti Tauro, Jeti Mira and Anapurna H3200i LED feature innovative and cost efficient technologies:

  • The Anapurna H3200i LED 3.2m hybrid offers air-cooled LED UV curing and enables printing on a broader range of media. The system features a solid frame construction, user-friendly RTR media loading as well as quick system up-time, energy savings and overall reduced operational expenses.
  • The Jeti Tauro with ¾ automation is a high-end, six color + white 100 inch, UV hybrid system positioned for the higher end of the sign and display market with print speeds up to 2960 ft²/hour. The Jeti Tauro’s scissor-stacker off loading system provides continuous feeding of rigid media. The system withstands extreme work loads (24/7 – multiple shifts) and prints up to 2.5 meter-wide on rigid or roll media.
  • The Jeti Mira is built for heavy industrial workloads. The Jeti Mira features optional varnish and unique 3D Lens Technology which produces a three dimensional varnish effect without the need for lenticular substrates. The systems “print and prepare” technology allows quick media loading while the printer is in operation. The Jeti Mira has six color plus white with optional primer or varnish.

A total of 170 entries in 49 product categories were submitted for this exclusive competition. Prints were judged on overall color appeal, tonality, image detail, objective color matching and grayscale color cast. The awards were announced at a ceremony held on Tuesday evening. Agfa Graphics has won a total of seven Product of the Year awards since its first submission in 2014. All the Product of the Year award winning Jeti and Anapurna systems are now available for delivery in North America and around the world.

The 2016 SGIA Expo is being held in Las Vegas, NV, September 14 – 16, 2016.
