Digital edge-colouring

The DIGI-B is a digital colour cutting machine for industrial production. The printing of 4 sides is possible in a fully automatic process. The pre-stacking of the products takes place during the printing process on a separate device. The complete stack is loaded in insert/delivery station in the clamping device.

The basic machine can handle formats from 50 x 50 mm to 360 x 360 mm. Optional possible up to maximum 720 x 720 mm.

The printing process takes place in a single-pass process and enables high performances. By format-specific clamping plates fast format changes are possible. The low unit costs are a result of an optimal use of the printhead width, low portion of costs by consumables as well as low maintenance costs and efficient pro- duction.
