Mechanics

  • Compact frame: Robust machine with metal platform that has a compact frame holding up to 12 printing bars.
  • Transport system: Anti-vibration transportation that assures accuracy and stability. It also has a high quality guiding device. The conveyor belt includes a self-cleaning system.
  • Printing bars: Accessible sliding bars with a highly efficient vacuum system between bars.

Operational

  • Tile thickness detector: A dual laser at the machine’s entrance detects both the position and the thickness of each piece. Thus, printing bars come down and adjust themselves to the tile height.
  • Optimized ink system: It allows a faster and easier refilling without spillage thanks to its extractable ink tanks. The ink system tubing design makes it anti-settling and has a manual and automatic reverse flow. It is a flexible system allowing very fast ink changes and ink tests without emptying the tank.
  • Cleaning system: The printer uses an advanced automatic nozzle cleaning system that generates a significantly fewer permanently missing nozzles. As a result, print-heads have a much longer life.

Electronics and software

  • EFI Electronics: Image upload and data transmission is faster to get high performance: you can print and rip simultaneously as well as modify settings on the fly for small re-adjustments during production. The electrical system is completed by two UPS (uninterruptible power supply) standard. All data connections are supported by CAT6 cables.
  • Software: Fully touch screen. Navigation is friendly and basic functions are permanently on display. All main functions are accessible in 1-2 clicks. It includes additional features such as linearization, ink consumption calculation and TAS.
  • TAS (Tone Adjustment System): It is an intuitive interface that guides the user through the process of study and application of changes in tone or intensity to apply to a model. It allows adjustments in the system without use of external software or extensive knowledge in color management.
