Improved price/ performance and print ROI

The combination of ultra-low ink consumption, thanks to a low film thickness, and speeds of up to 400m2/hr mean the Acuity Ultra R2 can print more jobs per shift at a lower cost, making it the most competitive superwide platform on the market for improving print ROI.

Exceptional quality in superwide format

With the Acuity Ultra R2, you get the excellent high quality, productivity and reliability our Acuity range is known for, on a massive industrial scale – up to 5 metres wide. Industrial printheads with a 3.5 picolitre drop size and specially developed LED UV inks ensure consistent high quality print.

Versatility and value

With its massive format size, 2- or 3-up multi-roll potential, ultra-high quality and the ability to print on a broad range of materials, the Acuity Ultra R2 is an incredibly flexible platform for printing exhibition graphics, POS displays, high-value graphic art, backlit displays, outdoor displays, outdoor signage and much, much more.

Operator ease of use

The new Acuity Ultra R2 incorporates design elements that have been implemented to save time, so more jobs can be processed, but also to make day-to-day printing easier for the operator. From an intuitive GUI to smoked perspex screens that support the constant monitoring of print in operation, the Acuity Ultra R2 is the ultimate machine for the operator.

LED and UV curing options

The Acuity Ultra R2 series is available in 3.2m or 5m formats, with the option of either LED or UV curing. There are both technical and commercial benefits for each curing option, and while it is widely understood that LED curing consumes less energy, UV lamps are needed to achieve block-free high speed curing at the very highest speeds that the dual CMYK version in the range operates at. The Acuity Ultra R2 range incorporates both solutions so that the best technology can be chosen to support specific business needs.
