R40-LT Description

Imagine being able to upgrade your press to increase throughput as your business grows.

Imagine Onset quality at an entry-level price.

The Onset R40-LT flatbed UV printer provides the amazing, market-leading print quality expected from the Onset series with production speeds that help your business grow. The R40-LT is capable of producing sellable output of 40 5′ x 10′ full size beds per hour with manual handling.

After the Level One Upgrade, the R40-LT is capable of producing sellable output of 58 5’ x 10’ beds per hour with manual handling. That’s over 4,300 square feet per hour. This upgrade includes the addition of a second UV lamp, the associated electronics and additional print modes. Adding a second UV lamp allows for bidirectional printing, which significantly increases printing speed. The conversion is completed with minimal downtime to quickly increase throughput.

Onset quality is delivered by utilizing a small droplet size (14 nanograms) to produce crisp images, fine lines, sharp text and smooth tonal gradations. And with the Onset’s full-width array printing, there’s no gloss-matte banding commonly associated with conventional reciprocating head technology, especially in high saturation areas.

Onset R40-LT Features

15 Zone Vacuum Bed – All zones are individually selectable by the user virtually eliminating the need to mask the bed for jobs; significantly increases productivity and allows for faster changeovers between jobs.

iNozzle Technology – An onboard scanner locates any under-performing nozzles and automatically assigns a reserve printhead to jet ink to make a perfect image.

R40-LT Four or Six Color Configurations – Your choice of CMYK or CMYK with light cyan and light magenta. The six-color provides the ideal press for customers demanding offset-like quality for closer viewing.

R40-LT White Option – Can be added to either the 4 or 6-color press option to precisely print white layers under or over the CMYK content; or use White as a spot color. Multiple layers can be used to vary opacity to pinpoint accuracy.

Upgrade Level 1 – As the need for throughput increases, the Level 1 Upgrade features the addition of a second UV lamp, the associated electronics and additional print modes. Adding a second UV lamp allows for bidirectional printing, which significantly increases printing speed. After this upgrade, the R40-LT is capable of producing sellable output of 58 5’ x 10’ beds per hour with manual handling.

Automation System with Upgrade Level 2 – As the need for throughput continues to increase, the Level 2 Upgrade features the addition of automation controls and electronics to support automated handling. Increase the throughput of the R40i by up to 50% by reducing manual change out of materials with the addition of any of the three optional automation systems. Each is paired with the Onset take off system, which removes each sheet from the print bed to a finished stack on an automated scissor lift.

Optional R40-LT Inca Software Suite – Provides operators with a complete suite of productivity-enhancing software including Reporter Pro, IncaVision and Print Run Controller (PRC).

The R40-LT was designed to allow increased productivity with the ability to add throughput by upgrading the press through the Level One and Level Two. After the Level One Upgrade, throughput increases to 58 5’ x 10’ beds per hour with manual handling. Upgrade Level One adds a second UV lamp, additional electronics and additional print modes. With the Level Two upgrade and an automation system, the press is capable of 80 5’ x 10’ beds per hour. The Level Two upgrade adds automation controls and electronics to support automation.
