Technical Specifications

2 media rolls with online switching and automated media feed. Second media roll is optional.

[OPTIONAL] Inside-roll printing – print at the inside of the roll for maximum media flexibility and specific customer requirements

Reduced ink usage – UVgel inks form a thin layer on top of the media. This requires less ink than a traditional inkjet ink would to produce vibrant colors, which soak into the media.

Roll winding module – The automated roll winder module increases the ease of use of roll-to-roll systems and reduces errors.

Refill inks while printing

[OPTIONAL] Double-sided printing: Make double-sided prints easily and without hassle, for example for large outdoor banners or Point-of-Purchase that are visible from both sides.

[OPTIONAL] FLXfinish+ – Matte or mixed matte and gloss without changing ink or media or extra channel

UV curing – Instant dry prints with UV LED lights.

PAINT nozzle monitoring – the nozzles are continuously monitored with Piezo Acoustic integrated Nozzle technology (PAINT) and corrected if needed.
