Danvers, Mass. – January 3, 2019 — Global printing industry leader Inkcups will showcase six promotional printing systems, including live demonstrations on the Helix®, B100 and Cobalt 2000, at the Promotional Product Service Institute (PSI) exhibition. The event will be held January 8-10, 2019, at the Messe Dusseldorf in Germany. Inkcups will be located in Hall 11, Booth K01.
The Inkcups booth will feature three pieces of UV printers, including the patented X2®*, XJET and HELIX®. The HELIX® is a 360-degree digital inkjet printer for straight-walled and tapered cylinders that prints full CMYKWW+V on cylindrical items such as sports bottles, mixing glasses, barware, candles, stainless steel tumblers and more. The system uses smart software with automatic height adjustment and intelligent diameter measurement for greater accuracy and precision. Inkcups will demonstrate how the HELIX® consistently reproduces high-quality, durable text and images onto plastic cups.
The booth will also display XJET, the world’s first industrial UV LED inkjet printer designed for both short-run and long-run industrial printing. As a category leader in digital flatbed printing, the XJET produces a 500 by 620-millimeter area print in 90 seconds and handles parts up to 5.75 inches tall. This high-speed and low-cost innovation combines premier XY flatbed scanning systems with high-production capabilities.
Another demonstration at PSI will be printing on plastic promotional items using the B100, a high-speed, single-color tabletop pad printer suitable for printing on promotional products, as well as tagless garments, glassware and medical and electronic devices. In addition, there will be a live plate-etching demonstration using the Cobalt 2000, an industry leader in affordability and efficiency. Lastly, Inkcups will unveil its new MagiCoat, a breakthrough water-based ink primer that optimizes adhesion, enabling glassware to withstand up to 600* industrial washes without image degradation.
