Neolt has unveiled a prototype of its X-Jet printer for the first time worldwide at Fespa Digital (Stand H40, Hall 1).
The four-color X-Jet is an affordable, hybrid UV printer that uses advanced Xaar 1001 greyscale printheads to produce high-resolution 1440 dpi images on a wide variety of flexible media at speeds from 40 up to 120 sqm/hr.
The variable drop capability of the industrial-strength Xaar 1001 printhead enables eight levels of variable drop size from six to 42 picolitres giving users the ability to choose the best resolution for each job from 360 dpi up to a maximum of 1440 dpi.
The Neolt X-Jet uses INX Digital Triangle UV curable inks that have been formulated specifically for use with Xaar 1001 printheads to provide high quality performance on a range of materials including vehicle wrap adhesives. The combination of Neolt engineering, Xaar printheads, INX Digital engineering and Triangle inks enables the X-Jet to produce smooth tone graphics, fine detail, and sharp text to generate outstanding results quickly, cost-effectively and reliably.
Neolt and INX Digital engineering, in close cooperation, have also developed a version of this new printer for INX Digital and this will also be demonstrated at Fespa Digital as the Milano DXN1.
"We are very proud of the X-Jet which combines the best imaging technology with premium inks to produce a printer which delivers high-end quality at an entry level price," said Giovanni Meani, Director of R&D, Neolt, Italy.
"Neolt and INX Digital engineering have developed a highly flexible printer that maximizes the capabilities of the Xaar 1001 printhead to give users a choice of imaging options to suit a wide variety of applications," said Phil Eaves, Sales & Marketing Director, Xaar. "Its capabilities are driving innovation and Neolt and INX Digital have realized the benefits in the new X-Jet."
