Product features
■High-performance head cultivated through garment printers
By evolving the print head technology cultivated over many years in the garment printer industry, we have developed a new highly durable piezo head for latex printers. The high resolution of 1200 dpi and variable dot printing that properly separates three types of droplets of different sizes enable a wide color gamut, high definition color expression, and advanced color reproduction.
■Water-based pigment latex ink
Printing uses latex ink that emits low VOC (volatile organic compounds) and is gentle on the human body. The ink developed in-house has received the environmental labels “UL ECOLOGO (R)” and “ULGREENGUARD Gold (R)”, which certify that they are considerate to the human body and the environment. Latex printers use a heater to soften latex (a dispersible polymer) and then harden it to form a durable coating. It can be used in a wide range of applications, including indoor wallpaper that requires environmental friendliness and car wrapping that requires outdoor weather resistance.
■High usability due to friendly design
Equipped with a 7-inch touch screen LCD screen that is intuitive and easy to operate. User guidance is also displayed, so even beginners can use it with confidence. By using a 700ml large-capacity ink pouch with a winding mechanism, the ink is designed to reduce the number of containers that need to be discarded after use, and to use the ink to the last possible extent.
