Acuity Select HS 30 Series

The Acuity Select HS with up to eight color channels and a maximum print speed of nearly 700 feet squared per hour (65 square meters per hour) is a balance of the creative and production focused Acuity model. In comparison, the Acuity Select prints at 377 square feet per hour (35 square meters per hour). And like the Acuity Select, the HS prints high quality, near-photographic prints using rigid, flexible and optional roll media.

The Acuity Select HS 30 series comes in a six or eight channel option with your choice of:

  • White + Varnish – Adding these two ink channels allows for printing on a range of non-white substrates and adds a spot or flood coat varnish effect in a single pass.
  • White + White – Adding two white ink channels improve the density of white in a single pass, which is ideal for backlit applications.
  • Additional Cyan + Magenta – Adding these two ink channels boosts the overall print speed of the press making it the most productive configuration.
  • Light Cyan + Light Magenta – Adding these two ink channels enhances the print quality for fine art quality printing.

Acuity Select HS Features

Zoned Vacuum Flatbed – Six dedicated vacuum zones tailored to common media sizes reduces the need for bed masking. The double bed has a seventh zone. Adjustable vacuum strength allows for optimum handling of different materials.

Automatic Maintenance System (AMS) – The Acuity Select HS is equipped with an AMS standard. The AMS cleans all the printheads in less than 3.5 minutes, ensuring that the nozzles are clean and ready to print at any time, maximizing productivity.

Roll Media Option – A compact roll-to-roll unit extends the versatility of Acuity Select HS 30 series printers. High quality images can be printed on roll media which look great even at close viewing distances.

Continuous Production Model Option – Expand the standard bed from 98.8″ x 49.6″ (2.51 m x 1.26 m) to double bed size of 98.4″ x 121.7″ (2.51 m x 3.09 m) for printing larger images. Includes dual registration points, so you can set up in one zone while printing on the other zone.
