ROTARY (CYLINDER) UV PRINTER 'REVOLUTION'
The Revolution® is a high-speed rotary UV printer (cylindrical) that offers full-color 360° graphics, unparalleled print quality, and speed. Ideal for manufacturers who need more flexibility in volume printing. The Revolution UV cylinder printer offers smooth, seamless graphics in vibrant CMYK with a dedicated white print head and varnish, all standard on each machine. In addition, the Revolution boasts 12 stations, automatic load/unload, an integrated pre-treatment system, and can print up to 600 parts per hour.
For high-speed plateless bottle printing and other applications, the Revolution® rotary UV printer uses Inkcups’ patented helical printing image engine to achieve higher quality prints at a resolution of 702 x 900 dpi. Compared to single-pass printing, the Revolution® can print longer images (up to 220 mm) without stitching. The helical image engine offers interlaced inkjet droplets promoting uniform coverage and significantly reduces banding and lines in print.
Easily integrate a fully automated process into production. The Revolution® high-speed digital rotary UV printer excels at automatic handling of parts from loading, to pre-treatment, to print. The addition of a production queue software, a feature that will automatically change the artwork to the next job once the prior job has completed, completely eliminates the need for an operator to devote all their time to a single machine.
The Revolution® high-speed rotary UV printer is capable of utilizing any one of our UV inks. Our in-house application experts will work to identify which mix works best with your substrates. For more information about our process, read The Importance of Choosing the Right Digital Ink.
THE REVOLUTION VS SINGLE PASS PRINTING
Helical printing enables the ability to print longer images in a single motion (up to 8.66″.) Unlike single-pass printing, which requires stitching (a second pass which leaves a line in the print) for any image over the size of the print head (typically 72 mm).
Helical printing interlaces the inkjet drops, smoothing out band lines and promoting uniform coverage. Single-pass printing will show a visible line of missing ink through the image if just one nozzle is out.
Helical printing can achieve much higher resolution images in both X and Y directions. Unlike single-pass printing which is limited by the low print head native resolution in the Y direction.
ROTARY UV PRINTER APPLICATIONS
A common item that is typically printed in large volumes. The Revolution® high-speed digital cylinder printer is capable of meeting the demand for larger runs with full-color customizable graphics.
The stainless steel tumbler is increasingly becoming popular for its reusability and insulation. The Revolution® cylinder bottle printer can quickly print a full seamless wrap around these tumblers with ease.
Glassware is popular for its reuse and design. The Revolution® high-speed digital printer can easily print an image around the entire glass without overlap or interruption.
Candle holders were often overlooked as a decorative piece…until now. The candle market is expressing the need for candles and design to go hand in hand. Buyers don’t want stickers, they want elegant, fun, customizable graphics printed at the highest quality possible.
