The Launching Materials Program - What Is It?

Fujifilm and ColorBase are collaborating on the Fujifilm Acuity Prime Hybrid Launching Materials Program, whereby ColorBase profiles a selection of premium print materials, enabling purchasers of the Acuity Prime Hybrid to hit the ground running. We are creating four profiles per material:

  • High Quality mode for ColorGate
  • Production mode for ColorGate
  • High Quality mode for Caldera
  • Production mode for Caldera

You are able to download these from ColorBase Profile Search and use them in conjunction with the launching materials on the Acuity Prime Hybrid. As a result, printers maximize color conformity for minimal effort. Using these profiles allows users to sidestep the trial and error, wasted material, wasted ink, and time normally spent on color management. Here at ColorBase we call that a 'plug-and-print' workflow.

The Acuity Prime Hybrid, from Fujifilm

The Acuity Prime Hybrid is a true Hybrid machine, which means there is no trade-off and none of the compromise that you would find in an older machine when switching between both rigid and roll media. Much like the entire Prime range, the Acuity Prime Hybrid offers its customers excellent return on investment, thanks to the full colour gamut provided by Fujifilm’s patented ink technology, maximum throughput achieved with the ability to print multiple boards, and sellable quality even in draft mode.

The Acuity Prime Hybrid can be configured with up to 7 channels, with CMYK as standard, and optional White, Clear and Primer, and produces stunning quality print, able to produce droplet sizes down to 7pL.  It handles flexible and rigid media up to 51 mm thick, and roll media up to 2m wide, and benefits from an ultra-reliable and long lasting air cooled LED UV curing system. It features a 4 zone vacuum system, and can produce print at speeds up to 141 m 2 /hr. The printer is suitable for an incredibly wide range of applications, but can also be configured with an optional primer. The Acuity Prime Hybrid also has a range of built-in safety features designed to maximise print uptime, which include anti-collision protection, with crash sensors deployed at both ends of the carriage, and an ioniser bar that reduces static on the media surface. Like the Acuity Prime, the printer also benefits from remote operation."

To see this printer in action, be sure to check out the upcoming industry shows. You can visit the Fujifilm booth #2809 at the ISA International Sign Expo in Orlando FL, April 10th through 12th, or if you're on the other side of the pond, check out Booth A02-1 in Hall 8B at DRUPA in Dusseldorf, May 28th to June 7th.
