Direct Color Systems (DCS) has added a new dimension to the crisp, full-color images of its small-format UV LED inkjet printer line, introducing a high-speed model that utilizes inline printing and produces breakthrough 3D textured prints.
The Direct Jet 1024UVHS with TEXTUR3D On Board boasts enhanced X-axis motion for up to a 50 percent increase in throughput over its predecessors*. When paired with DCS’s advanced Color Byte RIP 9 software, the 1024UVHS becomes a complete economical printing solution. Any combination of two or three of RIP 9’s groups of white, color and clear print head channels can print simultaneously, inline in a single pass. Through this innovative process, RIP 9 is able to offer remarkable single-pass and raised-texture options. TEXTUR3D™ 3-dimensional prints offer a unique look and feel that will bring users’ projects to new heights. RIP 9 also integrates seamlessly with industry-standard design programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, CorelDRAW and Color Byte to streamline production processes.
The 1024UVHS has a printable area of 10” x 24” (254mm x 610mm) and prints on substrates up to 6” (152mm) thick. Like all of DCS’s UV LED Direct Jet printers, its white ink creates a very opaque image, allowing users to print vibrant colors and crisp text onto virtually any colored or transparent substrate. DCS’s UV LED inks create images with outstanding solvent and abrasion durability on wood, metals, ceramic tiles, plastics, glass, industrial parts, promotional products and much more.
DCS will be debuting this cutting-edge technology at the SGIA Expo in Las Vegas (booth #2913), running October 18-20, and will be holding the DCS EAA Annual Distributor Meeting in Porto, Portugal from Nov. 1-2. Come see and feel the difference of the 1024UVHS’s TEXTUR3D prints for yourself!
