Helix Rotary Inkjet Printer

Helix Rotary Inkjet Printer

The Helix® rotary inkjet printer is designed to print superior quality full-color (CMYKWW + varnish) images on straight-walled and tapered cylinders. Fast and flexible, this cylinder printing machine is ideal for use in the drinkware, barware, candle, and industrial printing industries.

Choose from a variety of inks to print utilizing the Helix® rotary inkjet printer. The DL Series was formulated for excellent adhesion to glass and plastic. Paired with MagiCoat pre-treatment solution, glassware items can handle up to 200 residential washes (depending on temperature and detergent). The Prop. 65 compliant S1 Series is the perfect solution for a variety of rigid substrates such as stainless steel and metal. Finally, the XFlexx Series is compatible with flexible applications such as squeezable water bottles. This Series fully passes the squeeze test without cracking. In addition to the numerous inkjet inks we carry, we also perform all adhesion requirements for you. This is done during the sampling process. Once we have completed adhesion testing according to ASTM, we will send your samples back to you along with the report.

The Helix® rotary inkjet printer minimizes setup time with an advanced quick-change tooling fixture that easily adjusts to print on both straight and tapered parts. Inkcups offers a custom tooling service from concept to build. Simply send in a few of your drinkware or cylindrical items and we will create tooling that will fit perfectly into your Helix® rotary inkjet printer.

Time-consuming prepress and screen-making steps are eliminated with this all-digital inkjet-based process. Simply import an image, choose the quantity for production, and print directly on the product via user-friendly control software. Rotary printing could not be easier!

The Helix® rotary inkjet printer strikes an ideal balance between speed and image quality thanks to its patented Helix software, which places 7-picoliter drops of ink precisely along the cylinder at extremely high speed. This heavy-duty state-of-the-art machine is designed and built in the U.S.

Inkcups truly offers a full solution from consulting to setting up the machine for print to training your operators on how to use the Helix® rotary inkjet printer. Training can either be done at one of our facilities or at your facility. We want to ensure your operators understand how to operate and how to perform daily maintenance to the machine.
