Available in 3.2 meter and 5 meter models, the Acu- ity Ultra printer is ideal for the high-end indoor display market, especially for luxury brands where close viewing requires exceptional quality. With its massive format size, multi-roll potential and impressive speed, Acuity Ultra pro- vides users with the ability to profitably create customer interior design elements, soft signage, exhibition graphics, point-of-purchase displays, high-value graphic art, backlit displays, and more. Successful printing on multiple substrates is a crucial need for today’s print service providers. “One of the things that really performs well on the Acuity Ultra is the 3 oz. polyethylene,” added Rathjen. “We assumed we’d have a ton of issues because it’s so thin, slippery, and prone to static, but we’ve had no issues with it, and that’s been a pleasant surprise. Substrates that we thought would be an issue haven’t been. The ink seems to cure perfectly, doesn’t crack, and doesn’t scratch.” “For Newman Print, choosing the right printer was vital. Our customers expect a high quality product with a quick turnaround time. The team looked at a number of options and it was clear that Fujifilm would meet our needs,” said Rathjen. “Fujifilm is a trusted provider. You can count on them to provide an exceptional printing solution – such as the 5 meter Acuity Ultra printer – and steadfast support that goes well beyond the initial sale.” Visit for more information.
