Agfa has confirmed the development of new inks for its Onset inkjet printers. These inks boast high quality and performance while minimising ink usage.
One of the latest developments from Agfa is the Onset 560 ink, which was developed in just six months for the Onset. This high-speed inkjet printing press with a full-width printhead system features advanced automation including robots and tackles sign, display and packaging applications at up to 1450 sqm per hr. The Onset 560 ink set offers a wide colour gamut and excellent print quality combined with low ink consumption, resulting in proven double-digit savings compared to other inks. This is made possible through Agfa’s patented Thin Ink Layer technology, which uses a special dispersion method of pigments with exceptional colour strength. The ink set has also obtained the prestigious GREENGUARD Gold certification, which assures its compliance with strict chemical emission limits and makes it suitable for use in sensitive indoor environments like schools and healthcare facilities.
“We demonstrate our expertise in developing and producing inkjet ink through our ability to consistently deliver high-quality prints. This is made possible by our inks’ exceptional ink shelf life, consistent batch-to-batch performance, reliable jetting, and vibrant colour strength,” says Marc Graindourze, Business Manager, Industrial Inks. “All of that is in turn achieved through application-oriented R&D as well as rigorous testing and quality control measures that are implemented throughout the ink manufacturing process. Our relentless commitment to research and development, combined with our unwavering dedication to deliver exceptional image quality, consistency, and sustainability has earned us the trust of printers and end-users around the world.”
