FG Series
Best Choice for Printing on Heavy and Thick Substrates

  • Large-format Flatbed Inkjet Printer with Fixed Printing Platen
  • Movable Printing Gantry Designed for Heavy Substrates
  • UV-LED Curing Technology Compatible with a Wide Range of Substrates
  • White Ink (Optional) Provided for Printing on Transparent or Colored Substrates
  • Japanese Industrial-level, High Precision & High Speed Print Heads


ADVANCED PRINT HEAD CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

  • FG series printer utilizes the most advanced Ricoh print heads. Print heads feature up to 600dpi physical resolution, minimum 7pl droplet and high jetting frequency. One print head can print two colors.
  • FG series printer also supports Japanese industrial-level high precision & high speed print heads. Print heads feature up to 600dpi physical resolution and minimum 4pl droplet.
  • Proprietary VDS (Variable Droplet Size) control technology integrates print head control of 3-level droplet sizes with ColorPRINT RIP Software for producing sharper images with smoother gradient.
Variable Droplet Size Control


SUPERIOR WHITE INK PRINTING (OPTIONAL)

  • Printing with high density white ink, FG offers bright and vivid colors on transparent or colored media. Thanks to the separate white ink circulation system, FG easily keeps white ink well mixed at all time for consistent and reliable printing.
  • Coming with the professional ColorPRINT RIP software, FG enables over-printing for backlit applications on transparent materials, under-printing for colored materials, printing white out of images, and printing white as a spot color.

BENEFITS OF UV-LED CURING TECHNOLOGY

  • UV-LED technology is an earth friendly solution with no mercury, no ozone, and no UVC rays. Meanwhile, UV-LED technology has significant advantages in energy usage and in reducing the heat load to the substrate.
  • UV-LED lamps have a long life cycle for consistent print quality.
  • UV-LED inks are in liquid form before cured by UV-LED lamps. So when nozzles are clogged, solvent inks can't traverse, but UV inks pass through easily ensuring longer life time of print heads and lower maintenance cost.

ADVANTAGES OF MOVABLE PRINTING GANTRY
With movable printing gantry design, the latest generation of FG series flatbed inkjet printer step moves the gantry and
stays the printing platen stationary when printing.
 

 

 Saving Space

 Unique Y-axis direction motion control  technology of  movable gantry saves space  when printing.

 

 Thick Substrates

 With the gantry height being adjustable, FG  series  printer can print on substrates  whose thickness is up  to 76.2mm (3.0") .

 

 Heavy Load

 With movable gantry and fixed platen, FG  series  printer enables to print precisely on  extraordinary  heavy substrates, such as  steel, iron, tiles, glass,  within 200kg.

 

 Reducing Inertia

 For flatbed printer with movable platen, the  motion of  the media generates inertia and  affects print  precision. But for the printer with  movable gantry, the  platen and the media is  fixed, so the inertia from  media motion will  reduce sharply for exceptional print  quality.

 
COMPATIBILITY WITH A WIDE RANGE OF SUBSTRATES
 
  • With UV-LED curing technology, FG series printer enables users to directly print exceptional images on a wide range of rigid uncoated substrates for indoor and outdoor applications.
  • Besides regular rigid sheets or boards printing, FG series printer also enables to print on heavy substrates up to 200kg.
  • Optional white ink printing creates new possibilities for printing on transparent or colored media to shorten lead time, expand business, and maximize potential revenue.

Highlights:

Outstanding Software Control Technology

  • Proprietary image algorithm enables you to print large-size images reliably without stopping.
  • Working seamlessly with the professional ColorPRINT RIP Software, FG series printer produces vivid colors and fine details with ColorPRINT's enhanced color management and raster image process technology to grab viewers' attention.
Highly Integrated Carriage
 
  • With the help of a microprocessor, the Active Negative Pressure System ensures high-quality printing at the highest ring frequency that industrial inkjet print heads support.
  • The large carriage is designed for more print heads and wider printing width at each pass to make printing more efficient.
  • The Z-axis height adjust mechanism can automatically move the height of the print heads for best printing distances between nozzles and media.
  • State-of-the-art dual UV-LED lamps ensure ink curing for high speed printing. UV-LED lamps have instant On/Off capability so that printing and curing are synchronized efficiently.

 

Color LCD Smart Panel provides printer status information and online/ offline printer control. The six-zoned vacuum table keeps media stationary with one, two,… or six vacuum systems, ensuring accurate color registration even at bi-direction or multi-pass printing. Silent linear guide and linear guide girder ensure precision printing and easy operation. The double-inlet bulk ink tank with a liquid level sensor is easily used for adding ink and alarm for the shortage of ink.
