INX Digital International Co. introduced the Milano DXN1, a new advanced-generation UV curable printer for high-speed, single-pass scanning applications. The new printer was displayed at FESPA Digital 2009.
Engineered by Anteprima – which is now part of INX Digital – and manufactured by Italy’s Neolt in a joint venture, the Milano DXN1 features variable-drop capabilities of the Xaar 1001 printhead. It is based on innovative Xaar Hybrid Side-Shooter and TF Technology for accurate drop control, superior print quality and productivity at speeds up to 1300 sq. ft. per hour.
Initially available in Europe through INX Digital and Neolt, the Milano DXN1 will be distributed globally through the INX Digital network.
“The Milano DXN1 is the first printer of its type on the market with this single-pass scanning print mode,” said INX Digital’s Paolo Capano. “We are delivering advanced technology that can move the digital printing industry forward, with engineering that incorporates advanced printheads originally designed for high-speed narrow web label printing. Here they can provide both the high-resolution quality and print speed to make the Milano DXN1 a viable alternative for a vast array of additional applications.”
“The decision to integrate the industrial strength Xaar 1001 printhead as a key component in the Milano DXN1 is an important endorsement of our technology,” said Phil Eaves, Xaar’s sales and marketing director. “The ability to produce dynamically variable drop sizes is essential to meet the quality and performance required for today’s demanding printing applications.”
“The Milano DXN1 exemplifies the multi-faceted global capabilities that INX Digital International brings to the marketplace,” Mr. Capano added.“We are combining USA-based internal electronics engineering, Xaar printhead technology and European manufacturing by Neolt, plus high-performance UV inks, to deliver a major advance in digital printing capabilities.”
