An appointment with innovation at Inprint, the Industrial print show being held at the Munich trade fair centre from 14 to 16 November 2017 (hall 6, stand 634). Here, Cefla Finishing will be showcasing the single-pass UV J-PRINT SP520 and the multi-pass J-PRINT MP for hardenable inks.
The innovative digital printing solutions provided by Cefla Finishing – the world leader in the finishing and decoration of wooden, glass, plastic, fibre cement, composite material and metal surfaces – focus on harnessing the personalisation potential of digital technology and applying it to the large-size printing of high definition images. Close monitoring of trends and non-stop research (not to mention the takeover of JetSet, an Italian provider of true excellence in the digital printing field), make Cefla Finishing one of the most advanced, fastest-growing players in the digital printing industry.
InPrint technologies offer the potential of tactile feedback or ‘haptic’ printing, based on MyTexture technology applied to single-pass systems. This is the case, for example, with the J-PRINT SP1300 TD, which can print on large items up to 1560 mm long at a resolution of 400 Dpi and at speeds of up to 50 m/min. Together with Kuei, Cefla-developed technology results in final products with a tactile feedback that synchronises perfectly with the imagery.
This solution is of particular interest to operators who need to process high product volumes, as it combines huge personalisation potential with high output rates and working simplicity. This merges with the advantage of creating, at the end of the process, a tactile effect on the product using standard coatings (i.e. without having to apply any further protection). The outcome? Limitless surface characteristics and a boundless capacity to meet market demand: just think, for example, of the ultra-high strengths required in flooring.
