Direct & transfer printing – for the widest application scope

Avinci can print a wide variety of polyester-based soft signage applications such as backlit point-of-sales displays, indoor wall graphics, outdoor advertising, block-outs, backdrops, flags, or retail store décor elements. In addition, it can also be used to print polyester-based sportswear or fashion garments. You name it, Avinci is up to the challenge.

  • Being able to print directly to fabric is easy and ideal for fast handling and for special applications such as flags, where print-though is needed.
  • Transfer paper allows for super sharp prints, eliminates any set-off, and limits media waste to a minimum. In addition, it extends the application scope to sportswear and fashion garments, as well as home décor prints on non-coated polyester fabrics.
Vivid colors

Vivid colors, high performance

The Avinci CX3200 boasts a rich color gamut and delivers deep black, perfect solids, accurate spot color mapping and smooth tonal rendering that is particularly noticeable in skin tones. Through the process of dye sublimation, your soft signage prints will look simply amazing.

The Avinci inks are characterized by their flexibility, image longevity and outdoor resistance. They offer stable jetting performance and deliver the same high-quality results, batch after batch.

An off-line calender unit fixes the color deeply into the structure of the polyester-based fabrics while evaporating the carrier fluid.

Safe for people and environment

The Avinci 110 inks obtained the OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT, an independent certification system for chemicals, colorants, and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry. The ECO PASSPORT states that the Avinci 110 inks can be used to produce human-ecological optimized textiles, in other words: that they – when combined with the right substrate and printing method – will have no harmful effect on human and environmental health.

The ECO PASSPORT also indicates that the prints made with the Avinci 110 inks can obtain the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 label, one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles. This label states that every component of an article, i.e. every thread, button, and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article, therefore, is harmless for human health, and can be used for skin contact, e.g. for blankets, sportswear…

Low ink consumption saves money

Avinci produces excellent results with a minimum of jetted ink. This low ink consumption is based on Agfa’s renowned Thin Ink Layer technology: a smart combination of particular ink characteristics and our Asanti workflow software algorithms that tune the ink quantities perfectly to the required image quality mode.

Reliable and convenient – for maximum uptime and peace of mind

Smooth and accurate media handling

The Avinci’s dedicated soft signage transport system ensures precise and flawless unwinding, feeding and winding of media, even at the highest production speed. When printing on transfer paper, the vacuum plates make sure that the media are kept perfectly flat on the table and will not wrinkle. The powerful drying system limits drying time and reduces set-off.

Fast and easy changeover

You will not find a textile printer that is as easy to use as the Avinci. Thanks to the convenient pinch rollers and foot pedal, loading a new roll can be done in less than seven minutes by a single operator!

Robust design & low maintenance

The Avinci CX3200 has a robust design, using only high-quality parts that are built to last. This means you can expect few service interventions and a minimum of consumables consumption. Maintenance is minimal and easy too.

What our customers say

Powered by Asanti workflow software

The Avinci CX3200 is driven by Agfa’s Asanti wide-format workflow software. Asanti controls and automates the entire printing process from file intake to finishing, maximizing productivity. Its comprehensive integration of file handling, color management and preflighting guarantees smooth and error-free jobs.

Color accuracy is provided by the easy-to-use color management. Using our Calibrated Print Mode feature, new media can be calibrated and profiled in less than 15 minutes, after which the new profiles can be used to guarantee print quality. In addition, Asanti’s smart imaging algorithms help optimize ink consumption, and consequently reduce your production costs as well as your environmental footprint.

The web-based Asanti Production Dashboard offers a view on your running production. It summarizes the jobs produced and reports on quantity printed, media usage, ink volumes… enabling you to control your production and to manage your print shop optimally

Signs and banners

Asanti offers a series of value-added features for soft signage makers such as the automated positioning of cutting marks and grommets on the banners, or the easy design of canvas extensions for the creation of flag pole pockets.

Nesting

Using the nesting module embedded in Asanti, you can nest artwork and optimize the media surface used during the print cycle. The tiling module supports irregular shapes and minimizes media waste during cutting.
