Digital inkjet printers
Our digital inkjet printers for packaging machines are also designed with the highest standards of hygiene and safety in mind, with materials and components that are compliant with the strict regulations of the medical industry. They can handle a wide range of packaging sizes and shapes, and offer a variety of ink options to meet specific labeling requirements. We understand the importance of accurate and reliable labeling in the medical industry, and our printers are designed to meet these needs.
Our XPrint printer, Alfa Service brand, is the innovative generation of high resolution digital printers that responds to all printing and marking needs of packaging directly on the packaging line, where the need to be able to quickly change the entire print layout by selecting it from the operator panel adapting to all formats of the packaging machine and including all the information necessary to identify the package such as: fixed texts, variable data, graphics, logos, barcodes, etc. Different packaging designs, different product references, descriptions in the various international languages, sudden request for a promotional message, composition of technical information that comply with specific regulations and regulations: all this and more are no longer a problem with XPrint.
The new trends in the global market require ever greater flexibility at low costs for the companies that pack their products. A key point where maximum reaction speed is required is precisely the need to be able to quickly change the information printed on the package, whether fixed texts, variables, graphics, barcodes, etc. The answer to all requests for printing and marking the packages directly on the packaging line, which makes for flexibility, speed, quality, and economy, is the new XPrint digital inkjet printers for packaging machines.
We provide the best benefits for your business
XPRINT is the innovative generation of high resolution digital printers that responds to all printing and packaging needs.
The XPrint printer is equipped with an editor that can be installed on a common PC. It is very simple and effective, and it allows you to realize most of the layouts normally required in production. In the case of complex layouts or very particular graphics, the system can import professional-quality graphic files. The same ones that today make the layouts for flexo printing films can generate the print file for the XPprint. Our internal software office is available to analyze any specific requests from our customers and create customized functions and programs. On-board software, on the other hand, allows all the adjustments necessary for the correct alignment of the print heads.
A single file that represents the layout with any combination of tracks and feeds is sent to the printer, which transfers onto the wrapping, up to a speed of 800 mm per second, the entire printing area without any mechanical adjustment by the operator. The marking takes place in perfect synchronization with the packaging machine. The 1000 ml cartridge system allows a fast and clean ink supply system as well as a very long autonomy and completely eliminates machine downtimes, allowing the hydraulic system to be recharged without stopping the printer and therefore the packaging machine, increasing the average production speed.
Specialized in rapid format changes, it is able to follow even small productions with an identical printing and packaging cost for any production batch size. Free from the problem of pre-printed material that requires minimum batches below which it is not produced, from the cost of logistics and storage, and from penalizing procurement times that can never compete with direct printing in line with the packaging machine. Economic consumables, long autonomy, and almost non-existent maintenance increase the economic advantages compared to all the other systems available on the market today.
The printer works at high speed with a resolution of 180 to 360 DPI, ensuring excellent visual quality and accuracy in small details. CONSTANCE is the quality of printing over time. For the same substrate on which the quality is to be printed, the quality does not change over time as there are no moving parts subject to wear. Every single drop of ink deposited on the sub-terminal is always the same, billions and billions of times.
The XPrint uses the digital technology of the piezo print heads, which allows a wide range of printing configurations to be made, adapting to the customer’s specifications in both single-color and multicolor modes (up to 4 colors). The print head is mounted on a dedicated support that provides automatic management of the film movement, the automatic head bleeding system, and the parking position for cleaning and capping the heads.
With XPrint it is possible to print on different substrates ranging from medical paper to Tyvek, from aluminum to PVC, taking advantage of the wide ability to use different types of solvent-free inks:
- Up to the most sophisticated UV inks (Requires additional devices).
The very compact dimensions of the entire printer allow easy mounting directly on any thermoforming machine or blister pack on the market, both in continuous and intermittent operation with single or multiple impression formats.
It is a totally digital printer for layout printing, directly on the production line, and is also very complex, including: – Fixed and variable texts – Graphs and logos – Linear and two-dimensional barcodes – Management of data from external data-bases.
The following accessories can be added to the XPrint:
- Black / red / blue / green / white / uv ink.
- Optional device for uv ink use.
- Single pitch support – Dual pitch support.
