DES has introduced flatbed UV printer the Daytona T600UV, which the company claims is the most cost effective entry level fixed bed printer designed and manufactured by the US based Raster Printers.
Eli Friedlander, product manager at DES says “It is obvious that the Raster Printers R&D team utilised their experience to produce a product which meets the majority of the industry’s requirements when it comes to white ink layer option, photo quality images, rigid substrate handling, productivity and affordability.”
The ink set can be configured to CMYKLcLm or CMYK+White. The design concept of a stationary vacuum table with precision movements of the gantry and print head carriage enables an extreme accuracy of ink droplet placement.
The high 1080dpi print resolution provides photographic quality images and exceptionally sharp text while the UV ink the necessary outdoor light and abrasion fastness, according to the company.
Any screen printing grade substrates up to 50mm thick such as Corflute, Acrylics, Composite ALU, Sign white, Ceramics, Banner vinyl and translucent Polypropylene can be printed.
The Daytona T600UV printer is supplied with a HP PC workstation and EFI Fiery RIP, including industry specific options such as spot colour matching.
DES says benefits of the printer include:

The printer is supported by a professional team of factory trained technicians with access to a full range of spare parts and consumable items are stocked locally. DES experts will be on hand to give advice and demonstrations on this photo quality signage printer at the VI exhibition this year.
