“We are very impressed with the print quality of the Anapurna LED and Agfa’s Thin Ink Layer technology" upgrade
with Agfa Anapurna H3200i LED through Litho Supplies"

Meet the new girl - Anapurna (AGFA Sale)


Like any good parent, we love all of our children equally - but we do have a soft spot for 'Ana'.

It might be because she'll print on pretty much any substrate up to 45mm thick.
Then again it could be her 2.5m x 1.5m borderless printing, or even the 15 sqm per hour high quality print coverage...

Whatever it is, we're sure you'll agree she's pretty special. The Anapurna FB2540i LED produces exceptional print quality on a
wide variety of indoor and outdoor media and uncoated rigid media such as corrugated boards, rigid plastics, plexiglass,
mirrors, exhibition panels, wood, aluminum, MDF, stage graphics and advertising panels.

Large format flat bed printing is part of RDD's wider family of manufacturing services. 

Projects flow seamlessly from the printer through our workshop and assembly departments,
then out the door to wow your customers in retail or other environments.

Still not sure why you should get better acquainted with our Ana? Here's a few suggestions of projects she can handle for you:

  • Banners
  • Posters
  • Signage
  • Disaplys
  • Exhibition graphics
  • POP & POS
  • Mock-ups
  • Backlits
  • Frontlits
  • Self-adhesives
  • DVDs
  • Wood
  • Art reproductions
  • Personalized objects
  • Party gadgets
  • Architectural/interior decoration
  • Ceramics
  • Customised doors

B2B Graphics invests in a new Anapurna H2500i LED hybrid inkjet printer with Asanti workflow.
B2B Graphics heaps double praise on Agfa. The Bicester based firm wanted to increase its production capacity whilst maintaining quality of output.
After making a major investment in an Anapurna H2500i LED hybrid printer with Asanti workflow, the company was not only impressed with the
performance of the new inkjet system but also found Agfa’s preinstallation, set-up, service and training truly outstanding. And this was the first
installation engineer Nathan Green had carried out unsupervised.

Sun Chemical obtains GREENGUARD Certification for its Streamline range of HPQ low odour wide format inkjet inks

Wexham Springs, UK – 8th March 2016 – Sun Chemical has been awarded both the GREENGUARD and higher GREENGUARD Gold Certification
for its Streamline range of eco-solvent HPQ LO (high quality print/low odour) alternative inkjet inks for the wide format sector.

The emissions criteria to obtain GREENGUARD Certification are among the most stringent indoor air quality standards in the world.
Therefore, gaining GREENGUARD Certification for Sun Chemical’s Streamline inks demonstrates that they meet the most rigorous and
comprehensive standards that ensure low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for indoor air environments.
Certification offers customers a guarantee that prints created with the Streamline HPQ-LO eco-solvent inks comply fully with
the toughest air quality emissions regulations in the world.

Formulated with the same physical properties as the original inks, the Streamline range of eco-solvent alternative inkjet inks are
highly engineered to match the physical and colour properties of original inks to ensure maximum output and performance,
while benefiting from Sun Chemical’s unique low odour ink chemistry. Products from the Streamline range that have
secured GREENGUARD Gold Certification include

Streamline ESL 2 inkjet inks for the Roland Pro 4 generation of eco-solvent printers

Streamline ESL HPQ LO inkjet inks for the Roland Pro 2 and Pro 3 generation of eco-solvent printers

Streamline SGX inkjet inks for the Epson SureColor 30600, 50600, 70600 printers

Sun Chemical’s recently launched Streamline Ultima HPQ LO inkjet ink for the Mimaki JV33, JV5, JV150 and the JV300 high-speed wide format printers
has also been awarded GREENGUARD & GREENGUARD Gold certification.

Explains James Gould, Product Manager, Digital Aftermarket at Sun Chemical, “As the demand for healthier products and safer production environments
continues to grow, the industry is facing ever more stringent regulations to protect operatives and consumers. At Sun Chemical, we pride ourselves in
taking proactive steps to keep abreast of trends and legislation and by working with a world leading independent certification programme to gain
GREENGUARD Certification, our customers have total peace of mind that the inks they are using have been tested to the highest levels and fully
certified as low-emitting, non-toxic inkjet inks.”
