Consistently fast output speeds and rapid job turnaround deliver productivity only previously possible using multiple roll-to-roll engines or a larger flatbed print engine.

Outstanding quality

Non-toxic, durable and colourfast, the technologically advanced UVgel ink delivers instantly dry prints with excellent aesthetics, the widest colour gamut and precise sharp dots.
