The Helix®+ joins the Helix® line of cylindrical inkjet printers as the steppingstone between the Helix® and Double Helix®. Unique in design as the Helix®+ begins as a single tunnel machine with the ability to later upgrade to a double tunnel machine. This flexibility is a huge benefit for any company looking for a drinkware printing machine to grow alongside their operations.
The Helix®+ sports the updated appearance that all Helix® line of cylindrical printers now have. For easier access and maintenance of the machine a wider frame and illuminated interior are now standard.
Print superior quality full-color (CMYKWW + varnish) images on straight-walled and tapered cylinders up to 8.6”. With recent upgrade, ColorBoost, forgo the quality versus pass count trade off and achieve 12 pass quality and 6 pass speed or 8 pass quality at 4 pass speed. To achieve this superior image quality, ColorBoost allocates 2 channels per head, with a dedicated head per color rather than 1 channel per head in competitive machines.
Other standard features available on the Helix®+ besides ColorBoost include automatic cylinder height adjust, automatic intelligent diameter measurement, the Helix® software package, and safety feature no part, not print. Additional options that can be added the Helix®+ include transparent pin curing (TPC) for clear vessels, jettable primer, and the ability to add integrated corona or plasma pre-treatment.
Print innovation known and loved by Helix® and Double Helix® users will be available on the Helix®+. Differentiate from competitors further with print techniques such as mirror print, Lustre Effect, tone-on-tone, full coverage, contour print and more.
