Digital convenience, no compromise on quality

Print up to 200 B1 format sheets per hour and switch between jobs swiftly. Produce print that doesn’t need lamination or varnishing, and finish or ship immediately, as sheets come off the press cured. And deliver excellent print quality to demanding customers with an eye for detail.

Cost-effective, high-quality short runs

The Acuity B1 eliminates the pre-press and setup costs of offset and screen, and also reduces overprints and waste, especially important when working with thicker materials such as plastic and metal. Short runs become much more cost effective, and you can also offer high quality samples and one-offs.

Full ‘pallet-to-pallet’ automation makes production more efficient

Featuring full automation and a ‘pallet-to-pallet’ linear architecture, the Acuity B1 makes production simpler and will reduce the amount of labour you need on your print room floor. Operating the Acuity B1 is simple and straightforward - an intuitive and easy-to-use interface means less stress and reduces the reliance on highly skilled operators.

On the Acuity B1, we can achieve up to 600% more print throughput compared with our flatbed press, and the substantial cost savings we’re seeing on printing short-run work is giving us the ability to take on jobs for which our litho press wouldn't have been competitive.
