Single pass inkjet printing is ideal for a wide variety of high-volume manufacturing applications. The DICElab Process Development Digital Printing Press is a modular print system that uses the proven DICEblade modular digital printing system to deposit inks and other fluids onto a variety of substrates. This enables manufacturers to quickly bring new inkjet applications from concept to production, using real world production printheads.

Additional applications include:

  • Visual inspection of roll-fed products
  • Narrow web product printing (e.g. labels, tickets, tags) with fixed or variable data and barcodes
  • Printing on 3D objects (with conveyor option)

Superior Technology

Many small web printers use cheap motors and pneumatic brake/clutch systems to control web speed and tension. The DICElab printer uses two core chuck servo blocks for precise web control to:

  • Run at constant linear web speed from the beginning of the roll to the end
  • Run forward and backward without removing material from the system, allowing the system to backup and review printing without removing material from a roll.
  • Provide precise tension control avoids damage to delicate substrates
  • Allow the introduction of additional processes such as coating stations and lamination stations while maintaining uniform web tension.

The DICElab is built up from a series of modules, so it is highly configurable and expandable. A basic configuration includes the following:
