Inkcups has announced the release of its latest high speed rotary inkjet printer, the X360, to the European market following a successful year of operation at commercial production facilities in the US market.
The X360 is the newest addition to the company’s overall direct to cylinder product line. Capable of printing on tapered and straight walled cylinders, this machine features specialised tooling for tilting conical parts to print 360 degrees. Ideal applications include metal and plastic sports bottles, candle holders, glassware, stainless steel tumblers and industrial parts such as oil filters.
The X360 delivers on-demand, full colour printing on cylindrical parts up to 305 millimetres tall with a 40 to 120 millimetres diameter.
The machine prints CMYK plus two highly opaque UV LED curable white inks, with an optional varnish for additional visual impact.
At Fespa Global Print Expo, the company released the field proven X5 UV flatbed digital printer, now available for order in Europe. In addition to the company’s already established office in Germany complete with a demonstration facility, sample printing capabilities and a dedicated sales team, the company will add designated technical staff beginning in mid 2019 to support product expansion to the European market.
