INX International Ink Co. will have plenty of innovations to show and tell to the metal decorating industry when Cannex de las Americas convenes April 27-29 in Las Vegas. INX will be featuring the new line of EVOLVE Advanced Digital Solutions in booth 517 during the three-day show at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
Two innovative printers that INX debuted at PRINT ’09 last September will be prominently displayed at Cannex. The new CP100 UV can printer and MD660 UV flatbed printer present interesting new options for metal decorating customers to consider. Both technologies use INX Digital EVOLVE brand UV inks and are supported by a team of digital integration specialists trained to assist and help customers with the transition to digital printing.
The CP100 is designed for the short run production of cylindrical printing and offers high quality, single or multi-pass through-cured 4-color output with an advanced UV LED curing system. Its high speed technology is ideal for 2-piece cans and delivers exceptionally consistent, eye-catching color using proven and patented Xaar print heads. The MD660 is a cost effective solution that produces real metal sample proofs quickly for short run production of decorative tins, general line containers and aerosols. It achieves extremely high resolution over 1000 dpi on coated and uncoated aluminum or steel substrates using proven and reliable print head technology.
Also available from INX is a complete line of ink and coating solutions including 2-piece, flat sheet and digital applications. Ink solutions vary, ranging from conventional to UV, and will feature tactile inks and the new low temperature TP Vision Plus 3 conventional ink system for 3-piece metal decorating applications.
