Australian company, Inkdustrial, has released a new range of UV printers including an entry level machine which can print directly to cylindrical bottles and cans and three new flatbed printers – an entry level A3 desktop flatbed, the 9070 flatbed and the Super Drop 2513.
Inkdustrial sales manager John Bryson says with global pressures and shipment restrictions, Inkdustrial was not able to receive the new units in time for the PacPrint tradeshow, which starts next Tuesday 28 June in Melbourne, but is urging anyone who would like more information to contact him at email@example.com.
He also added additional news will be coming through soon about a range of performance industrial printers.
New from Inkdustrial:
The A3 flatbed has a print area of 300mm x 400mm and 75mm of head height. It comes with CMYK plus white and clear inks and is priced at under $20,000 + GST fully installed.
The 9070 is a free standing performance direct-to-object printer with a bed size of 900m x 700mm and a head head of up to 400mm. Bryson says this machine would be at home in “small signage one day to printing direct to a suitcase the next”. It prints CMYK plus white and clear inks and is available for around $55,000 + GST.
The Super Drop 2513 is a large format flatbed. “The Super Drop 2513 is another large format flatbed on the market but this time the application is about an ability to print and retain quality where others can’t,” Bryson said.
“With a system that allows for a head gap between the object and the printhead of up to 25mm, the Super drop is an ideal printer where you need to decorate into something not just on something. While retaining all the performance of the standard flatbed printers this off contact allows for printing onto irregular shaped objects.
“Combining some of the latest printhead technology with linear motor for precision dot placement
the Super Drop is ideal for those looking to do something different. At under $150,000 + GST it adds
value and fills a gap where traditional large format flatbeds fail.”
The other item in the range is the 360G – a new UV cylinder printer which is powered by Ricoh Gen5i printheads. It allows for the decoration of cylindrical or tapered cylindrical items with a print speed of around one minute per bottle with White, CMYK and clear printing. Bryson says this device opens up new levels of productivity for short run production. It is available for around $85,000 + GST.
