Maximum media width can be up to 400 mm (15.7”), and the machine is equipped with an automatic tension control on both unwind and rewind sides. The unwind side has a built-in automatic web guide.
The printer uses the Konica-Minolta KM1024 printhead and GEW curing lamps. Josef Trs, general director of Tecom Paper, says: “Before we launched our label machine into the market, we conducted a one year test program using our prototype inkjet machine to produce labels for real client orders. We found that our inkjet printer produces, in many cases, better color results than our traditional flexo printing machine. Our clients appreciated the quality of the inkjet printing.”
The printer features a splice table with pneumatic clamps on the unwind and rewind sides. The design of the transport system is simple to understand,” says Trs, adding that the small dimensions of the printer allow it to fit into operations with limited floor space.
