Q40i Description

The Onset Q40i flatbed UV printer sets the bar for offset-quality resolution producing crisp images, fine lines, sharp text and smooth tonal gradations – all at production speeds of more than one full-bed sheet per minute. The fine detail is possible thanks to FUJIFILM Dimatix Spectra QS10 print heads which jet droplets 300% smaller for unprecedented quality.

Offering many of the features found throughout the Onset range, the Q40i delivers a wide color gamut, variable finish for customizable matte, satin to gloss prints, advanced job management and optional 3/4 automation.

Onset Q40i Features

15 Zone Vacuum Bed – All individually selectable by the user makes the need to mask almost non-existent; significantly increasing productivity and allowing 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.
Q40i Inca Software Suite – Provides operators with a complete suite of productivity-enhancing software including Reporter Pro, Inca Vision and Print Run Control (PRC).
Q40i Four or Six Color – 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.
Q40i 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. In addition, multiple layers can be used to vary opacity to pinpoint accuracy.
3/4 Automation System – Increase the throughput of the Q40i by up to 50% by reducing manual change out of materials with this optional 3/4 Automation system. A pre-load table allows the operator to place and pre-register sheets while the press is running.
