Inkcups is to demonstrate the high performance output of three digital printers, two pad printers and laser platemaker at Fespa Global. Inkcups will be located in hall A5 on stand H70.
The stand will feature the company’s Helix, X5 and XJet digital printers.
The Helix is a cylindrical inkjet printer engineered to print stunning CMYKWW+V full colour on straight walled and tapered cylinders, such as sports bottles, mixing glasses, barware, candles, stainless steel tumblers and more.
The X5 is a UV flatbed digital machine with five printheads for on-demand, full colour prints on flat and hard goods up to six inches tall. The X5 can decorate a bed size of 1100 by 610 millimetres in two minutes. The XJet is an industrial UV-LED inkjet printer designed for both short run and long run industrial printing. It produces a 500 by 620 millimetre area print in 90 seconds and handles parts up to 146 millimetres tall. This high speed and low cost innovation combines premier XY flatbed scanning systems with high production capabilities.
The Inkcups stands will also showcase the company’s 2200-PS and B100 pad printers. The 2200-PS is a self standing, two colour sealed cup printer. The 2200-PS printer’s pad shuttle feature increases the number of pad impressions by almost double the amount of time as a typical pad printer of its type. The B100 is a high speed, single colour tabletop pad printer suitable for printing on a wide variety of tagless garments including t-shirts, medical scrubs, uniforms and athletic wear. The B100 also prints on promotional items, including silicone wristbands, napkins and sweet tins.
Each displayed machine will be live printing during the show on a variety of products, including plastic moulded promotional items and giveaways. In addition, there will be a live plate etching demonstration by the Cobalt 2000, an industry leader in affordability and efficiency.
