Best Choice for Printing on Heavy and Thick Substrates

  • Large-format Flatbed Inkjet Printer with Fixed Printing Platen
  • Movable Printing Gantry Designed for Heavy Substrates
  • UV-LED Curing Technology Compatible with a Wide Range of Substrates
  • White Ink Provided for Printing on Transparent or Colored Substrates
  • Japanese Industrial-level, High Precision & High Speed Print Heads

ADVANTAGES OF MOVABLE PRINTING GANTRY
With movable printing gantry design, the latest generation of FG series flatbed inkjet printer step moves the gantry and stays the printing platen stationary when printing.

Saving Space

Unique Y-axis direction motion control technology of movable gantry saves space when printing.

Thick Substrates

With the gantry height being adjustable, FG series printer can print on substrates whose thickness is up to 76.2mm (3.0").

Heavy Load

With movable gantry and fixed platen, FG series printer enables to print precisely on extraordinary heavy substrates, such as steel, iron, tiles, glass, within 200kg.

Reducing Inertia

For flatbed printer with movable platen, the motion of the media generates inertia and affects print precision. But for the printer with movable gantry, the platen and the media are fixed, so the inertia from media motion will reduce sharply for exceptional print quality.


ADVANCED PRINT HEAD CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

  • FG series printer utilizes the most advanced Ricoh print heads and Kyocera print heads. Print heads feature up to 600dpi physical resolution, minimum 7pl droplet and high jetting frequency. One print head can print two colors.
  • Proprietary VDS (Variable Droplet Size) control technology integrates print head control of 3-level droplet sizes with ColorPRINT RIP Software for producing sharper images with smoother gradient.

Variable Droplet Size Control Technology

SUPERIOR WHITE INK PRINTING

  • Printing with high density white ink, FG offers bright and vivid colors on transparent or colored media. Thanks to the separate white ink circulation system, FG easily keeps white ink well mixed at all time for consistent and reliable printing.
  • Coming with the professional ColorPRINT RIP software, FG enables over-printing for backlit applications on transparent materials, under-printing for colored materials, printing white out of images, and printing white as a spot color.

DIFFERENT COLOR CONFIGURATIONS

Color Configurations Benefits

6 color inks including light color inks perfectly reprint smooth gradation and light tone.

Directly prints on transparent and colored substrates.
Brilliant and vivid image colors are displayed due to white ink layer under the  image.

The primer can be printed with CMYK inks simultaneously. The automatic  primer application function enables the primer can be applied in the print  image area for better adhesion on different materials.

The varnish can be printed with CMYK inks simultaneously. Images will look more attractive by printing the varnish layer. 

The white ink and varnish can be printed with CMYK inks for unique market application.

COMPATIBILITY WITH A WIDE RANGE OF SUBSTRATES 

  • With UV-LED curing technology, FG series printer enables users to directly print exceptional images on a wide range of rigid uncoated substrates for indoor and outdoor applications.
  • Besides regular rigid sheets or boards printing, FG series printer also enables to print on heavy substrates up to 200kg.
  • Optional white ink printing creates new possibilities for printing on transparent or colored media to shorten lead time, expand business, and maximize potential revenue.


Highlights:

Outstanding Software Control Technology

  • Proprietary image algorithm enables you to print large-size images reliably without stopping.
  • Working seamlessly with the professional ColorPRINT RIP Software, FG series printer produces vivid colors and fine details with ColorPRINT's enhanced color management and raster image process technology to grab viewers' attention.

Highly Integrated Carriage 
  • With the help of a microprocessor, the Active Negative Pressure System ensures high-quality printing at the highest firing frequency that industrial inkjet print heads support.
  • The large carriage is designed for more print heads and wider printing width at each pass to make printing more efficient.
  • The Z-axis height adjust mechanism can automatically move the height of the print heads for best printing distances between nozzles and media.
  • State-of-the-art dual UV-LED lamps ensure ink curing for high speed printing. UV-LED lamps have instant On/ Off capability so that printing and curing are synchronized efficiently.





Dual-origin mode enables to automatically calibrate parallelism of the guide beam in case of deviation, ensuring precise printing. The six-zoned vacuum table keeps media stationary with one, two,… or six vacuum systems, ensuring accurate color registration even at bi-direction or multi-pass printing.




Dual linear guides ensure smooth carriage moving to achieve accurate printing.
Dual lead screws and servo motors realize precise motion control of the printing gantry, which improves print quality significantly.
The double-inlet bulk ink tank with a liquid level sensor is easily used for adding ink and alarm for the shortage of ink.
