Onset X3 Transforms Corrugated Display Production
The Onset X3 inkjet technology enables you to produce the same broad range of packaging work you might be doing today, but with much faster turnarounds and higher profitability.Even one-off proofs can be made on the same press now. Onset X3 from Fujifilm provides:
- The most cost-effective way to print one-off or hundreds of corrugated displays
- The fastest possible job turnaround and ability to print “just-in-time”
- The production of on-demand short run and custom work
- Endless customization of print campaigns, taking full advantage of variable data use
- The elimination of pre-press costs, as no plates or pre-coating processes are needed
- A reduction of waste in throughout the supply chain
Capable of printing in excess of 9,600 ft²/hour (180 beds/hour) with “R” printheads, the Onset X3 features three (3) CMYK ink channels plus the choice of white or orange. The Onset X3 sits at the pinnacle of productivity.
With this printer, users of analog screen printing lines can take the digital route, confident they can print long runs of high-quality print with superb consistency and reliability.
The Onset X3 is available with “R” printheads. “R” printheads are perfect for the production of high volume, quality images onto a wide variety of media. “R” printheads jet a 14 picoliter drop size providing a good balance of quality and volume for the display POP and signage market. The X3-R produces sellable output at speeds in excess of 9,600 ft²/hour (180 beds/hour).
The Efficient Way to Produce Short Runs
Onset X3 Features
25 Zone ‘No Masking’ Vacuum Bed – Featuring a powerful new vacuum system and choice of table skin design, the need for bed masking is eliminated, whatever the substrate size, and greatly reduces set-up times for the most common POP substrates and increases throughput of short-run, fast-turnaround print. Vacuum zones are independently controlled and the auto zone function allows it to be easily managed by the operator.
Simple User Interface – Touch screen GUI makes it easy to finalize and initiate jobs, save settings, create print queues and manage and optimize every stage of the print process. Improved off-machine job set-up means jobs arrive at the printer with more predefined parameters – substrates, print speed, quality mode, gloss level, etc – already specified.
iNozzle Technology – An onboard scanner locates any under-performing nozzles and automatically assigns a reserve printhead to jet ink to make a perfect image.
Inca Software Suite – Provides operators with a complete suite of productivity-enhancing software including Reporter Pro, Inca Vision and Print Run Control (PRC).
