Acuity Flatbed Series Features

Built on proven technology, the Acuity LED 40 series features a number of elements adapted from the trusted Acuity Flatbed series.

  • 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.
  • Pneumatic Registration Pins – Minimize operator setup time. These allow for quick, easy and accurate positioning of material, loading in perfect register. Standard bed version has five pins, the double bed version has ten pins, which can be controlled both automatically and manually.
  • Compact Footprint – Built to fit in the tightest production spaces – the most versatile printer you’ll have on your floor.
  • Roll Media Option – A compact roll-to-roll unit extends the versatility of Acuity LED 40 series printers. High-quality images can be printed on roll media which look great even at close viewing distances.
  • Double Bed Continuous Production Model Option – Expand the standard bed from 98.4″ x 49.2″ (2.5 m x 1.25 m) to double bed size of 98.4″ x 121.3″ (2.5 m x 3.08 m) for printing larger images. Includes dual registration points, so you can set up in one zone while printing on the other zone for nonstop printing.
  • Automatic Maintenance System (AMS) – Automates primary printhead maintenance to take as little as 25 seconds. This reduces the need to use the manual vacuum device to carry out daily maintenance.
