The Ardeco engine is Agfa's answer to the growing demand for textile printing

Agfa's Ardeco fabric printer has débuted in the Americas for the first time at SGIA Expo 2013. A 3.2m dye-sublimation printer designed for soft signage and direct-to-garment printing, the Ardeco uses eight or twelve print-heads and carries the option of a cold-knife cutting system for the creaton of back-lit displays and flags.

Also introduced for the North American market for the first time at SGIA is Agfa's Asanti Suite, a wide-format workflow system which boasts PDF integration and the ability to manage multiple print devices. The four- or six-ink UV-curable 3.1m Jeti TitanX, 3.2m Anapurna M3200 and 2.5m Anapurna M2500 also made their first appearances for the US market.

"Technology should enable creativity, not hamper it," states Deborah Hutcheson, North American marketing director at Agfa Graphics. "Our new software and printing technologies can assist the sign and display market in opening the door to new and unique print applications that were once more difficult and cumbersome to achieve.

"Thanks to these increased efficiencies, enabled by technology, sign and display makers can instead spend their precious time being creative and, ultimately, gain market share.”
