White is beautiful.
The :Anapurna Mw’s main difference with the rest of the :Anapurna M family
is that it has a white printing function. White ink is ideal to print on coloured or
dark substrates. The white ink function creates new possibilities for printing
on transparent material for backlit or backlit/frontlit applications or printing
white as a spot colour. It can even be used as a spot colour to bring in to focus
certain parts of an image. You might even consider printing images on dark
substrates using white ink only.
Stand out and let :Anapurna Mw differentiate your decoration and
communication jobs.
:Anapurna Mw white is reliable.
On Agfa Graphics’ :Anapurna Mw engines, white printing is reliable and
doesn’t harm productivity.
Agfa Graphics has seen to it that the :Anapurna Mw has a fully separated
white ink management system on board. The Mw has a separate circulation
system, a separate under-pressure-regulation ánd a separate cleaning circuit.
Moreover the white ink tank is equipped with a stirring mechanism to keep the
ink properly mixed at all times.
Print quality. And it shows!
The six 14 picolitre heads guarantee printing of good solids, fine text
reproduction of up to 6 pt, good tonal rendering and low ink consumption.
Next to the 8 (CMYK Lc Lm + 2 white) print heads this system features a robust
and industrial engineered concept, fi t for sustained higher work loads.
The 512 nozzles per head produce top quality prints at 720 x 1440 dpi.

Automation for an easy life.
:Anapurna Mw’s automatic vacuum system delivers an equal vacuum
throughout the whole printing process, whether printing roll or rigid materials.
This ensures flawless media transport, giving accurate print results at all
times! The ring-blower driving the vacuum system is built-in in the printer,
reducing the noise for even more user convenience.
:Anapurna Mw incorporates a set of shuttle safety sensors to prevent printheads from touching the substrate. This will avoid any possible damage to
print-heads.
Media loading is very straightforward with automated features such as the
media registration bar and head height adjustment. Dual board or borderless
printing maximises the productivity.
An optional ionizer bar sees to it that there are no electro-static loads on the
substrate, ensuring optimum ink droplet control and therefore delivering the
highest print quality.

Ink to print.
The “Agfa-made” :Anapurna UV-curable inks provide a large colour gamut,
high colour vibrancy and, thanks to good ink adhesion, high image longevity
and outdoor resistance. Maintenance of the :Anapurna Mw is easy and during
production the ink levels are monitored by the automatic ink refill system.
There is no mounting, no waiting, no remakes. This printer uses :Anapurna UV
inks for faster drying, material versatility and a wider colour gamut. It prints
cleaner than other technologies. :Anapurna inks allow instant curing, making
prints ready to handle immediately after leaving the engine.
