Dantex Group has launched its next generation Pico UV inkjet digital press series. Four different modular print platforms will be available from entry-level to full hybrid, 8-color and high-speed models.
Developed over the last two years, the range includes the PicoColour HD 1200, PicoJet 1200, PicoJet 1200i, and the flagship high-speed model, the PicoJet 1200s which is on the Dantex stand at Labelexpo Americas.
Each press in the series is based on a modular design incorporating inline finishing and a wide format touch screen which takes up two panels of the press side frame and allows easy access to all press parameters. The PicoJet 1200e launched at the show was configured with one flexo unit after the digital engine, a lamination unit and a slide in/slide out rotary die cutting station.
The press is designed to register against the die station, allowing rapid end-to-end job setup with minimal waste.
Dantex’s SuperWhite and DecoTactile technologies are included as standard. Superwhite ink delivers up to 92 percent opacity in a single pass, while DecoTactile can create a wide range of high-quality textured embellishments. Additional OGV color options are now offered, extending the colour gamut to more than 96 percent of pantone colors at a Delta E of 3 and below.
Pico’s software capabilities have been strengthened through partnerships with Esko and other industry leaders. The press uses Ricoh next generation inkjet print heads.
