Color and Layering:
This exciting new machine prints with 8 channels of pigmented UV cured ink and 2 additional channels of the best white available. Broad color gamut reproduction, ranging from bright saturated colors to light tints and pastels are all reproduced beautifully. Demanding applications that require multiple layers of ink such as back-lits, day/night applications, clear clings and bump colors can all be produced efficiently. Combining layering, white and pigmented ink enables creative use of colored, clear and metallic substrates for a dazzling array of applications and specialty effects.
This printer creates your images with tiny native 7picoliter drops delivering finer text and detail resolution than has been available before. (A picoliter is one trillionth of a liter, so we are imaging with ink drops that are 7×10-12 liters, or what we like to call “tiny”.) In practical application this means details will be sharper, text and logos easier to read and photos will look more like photos.
This is really cool:
Our new printer uses the latest in ink curing technology. High Tech LED UV wavelength energy sources provide virtually instant ink cure at room temperature so we can print on materials that don’t play well with typical UV curing systems. Some examples include very thin materials like Styrene a mere 1/100 of an inch thick, optically clear adhesive films for decorating architectural glass, thin wood veneers and even bubble wrap. Just because our new printer can print on really thin materials doesn’t stop it from printing on thick materials; we can print on darn near anything up to 2″ thick. In addition to thick and thin, there are materials that have been troublesome to print with inkjet because they don’t like to lay flat, like thicker corrugated cardboard. For customers who want to produce short run packaging, standees or displays from single or double wall B or C flute you may have seen this in the past from other printers. This new machine uses an innovative system called Material Edge Guides to hold down these challenging substrates and print them like a champ.
Our new Vutek is environmentally friendly. There are virtually no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s contribute to smog) in the inks. The inks also meet both the North American and European Toy Standards (ASTM F963-08 and EN71-3 respectively). The “cool cure” LED based ink curing system uses 80% less power (Fogra Energy Efficiency Project results) and reduces waste.
