Others enjoy both speed and quality with a group of 12 heads, which is 2 groups of CMYKLcLm. There are many variations and options, the choice is yours…

Dedicated white ink
The FLORA white ink application system is one of the most sophisticated in the industry! Used as a base color, an overcoat, fill color, under spot color, over spot color, and as a standard white only spot color the 2512UV is extremely versatile at using white ink! White ink has become increasingly popular for printing on dark substrates or transparent films and acrylics, and the Flora 2512UV flatbed demonstrates that all white ink applications are not created equal.

Varnish system
A clear varnish can be added to the Flora Konica Minolta ink system and can be used for color highlights, special effects, spot varnish, or unique graphic effects. The only limitation is your imagination. Additionally you can intensify the color and protect a print by using the all-over varnish application. Let your prints shine with the Flora varnish system!

Three layer printing innovation
The Flora 2512UV flatbed printer has the capability to print 3 different layers of ink with a single pass for maximum productivity. Utilizing the three layer system for maximum productivity and exceptional results on specialty substrates, is one way to get the most out of your 2512UV flatbed printer. Get your job done quickly and brilliantly with this fine machine.

Vacuum hold down table
From substrates as large at 4×8 feet, to smaller than 8.5×11 inches the Flora 2512UV flatbed printer has a powerful four zone vacuum table which secures the media for accurate printing. Want to print on a the back of a standard door? No problem. The Flora can print on just about anything, including material that’s 4 inches thick!

Automatic pin registration system
Production and accuracy is improved through the use of Flora’s Automatic Pin Registration System
and a simple three-step process for substrate and media alignment.

  • Step 1: Push the Media Preset Button and the alignment pins emerge from the bed surface.
  • Step 2: Align the material.
  • Step 3: Push the Media Preset Button and the pins are retracted. The PMR system delivers easy
    substrate alignment and accurate repeatability resulting in high precision output.

Auto media calibration
A Flora design innovation which allows the printer to detect the distance between the print nozzles and the media surface. Once calibrated, the print heads then automatically adjust the nozzle height to the optimized distance for exceptional printing.

Automatic anti-crash sensor
Maximizing production time will enhance shop workflow. Flora’s print head sensor eliminates costly head strikes due to media or substrate misalignment. This sophisticated safety feature can detect an obstruction on the printing surface then immediately stop the carriage movement to protect the Konica Minolta heads, saving media and ink. The ACS system also allows for maximum uptime.

Auto cleaning system
The smart cleaning system enables the print head nozzles to auto-prime and wipe automatically. This function is accomplished through software settings or on the control panel. Consistent maintenance saves time and money while maintaining reliable print quality and vivid color.

White ink recirculation
The Flora 2512UV flatbed printer offers innovative applications for white ink. White ink’s brilliance is maximized by a reflow system that keeps color particulates in motion. Suspension of these particles ensures maximum color coverage and clarity. Full white ink coverage yields outstanding image results with little maintenance.
