The Inkcups exhibit will feature the company’s Helix, X360, X5-T and XJET800 digital printers. The Helix is a cylindrical inkjet printer engineered to print full-color quality on straight-walled and tapered cylinders. The X360 features a tilting system for conical parts and prints a 360° bottle in less than one minute. The X5-T has optimal industrial capabilities, able to print items up to 20 inches tall. Specifically designed for industrial applications, the XJET800 features a self-sufficient conveyor loading and unloading system and can print an area of 31.5 by 24.4 inches and up to 10 inches tall.
The Inkcups booth will also showcase the B100, ICN-150 and 2200-PS pad printers. The B100 is a high-speed, single-color tabletop pad printer. The ICN-150 is a 1- or 2-color heavy-duty printer, surpassing the industry standard for large image capabilities. The 2200-PS is a self-standing, 2-color sealed-cup printer. Common product applications for these pad printers include power tool accessories, electric saw blades, appliance dials and plastic molded parts.
Each displayed machine will be live printing during the show on a variety of products, including magnetic clips, notebooks, fidget spinners, coolers and plastic cups. In addition, there will be a live plate-etching demonstration by the Cobalt 2000, an industry leader in affordability and efficiency.
New to the market early this year, Inkcups will display MagiCoat, a water-based primer that optimizes adhesion, enabling glassware to withstand up to 600 industrial washes without image degradation.
