Achieve design techniques such as mirror print, tip-to-tip printing, spot varnish and more at extremely high-quality color reproduction. The Helix®+ utilizes patented Helix® technology in combination with the best print head technology to deliver 7-picoliter of ink droplets precisely along the surface of the vessel while it is spinning at a high rate. Print up to two parts up to 12 in (305 mm) in length and artwork up to 8.6 in (220 mm) in length.
