Inkcups has released its direct-to-shape UV inkjet flatbed digital printer, the X5, to the European market at the Fespa Global following its earlier release in the US.
The machine features up to four Ricoh Gen 5 print heads for full-colour printing on
flat and slightly curved hard goods up to 150mm high. The manufacturer said it can decorate a bed size of 1100 x 610mm in approximately two minutes. Maximum image resolution is 1200dpi.
The X5 prints CMYK plus two opaque UV LED-curable white inks, with an optional varnish for additional visual impact.
