InkTec will launch the 5m-wide Jetrix RX5000 roll-to-roll UV printer at Fespa 2015 next month.
Harnessing all of the attributes of the recently launched 3.2m-wide RX3200, the new superwide machine is said to have a top production speed of 255m2/hr - 36m2/hr in the best quality setting.
Equipped with 16 Konica KM series (14pl) printheads, the RX5000 will be available either with a four-colour (CMYK) or eight-colour (CMYK, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black and Light Yellow) ink configuration. It will feature an easy winding system and option to load multiple rolls on the feed to enable printing at the same time.
“Some may wonder why we have gone even bigger, but we are clearly seeing a demand across Europe for indoor and outdoor graphics produced on these super wide production printers. As a result, there was a need to go one step further, which is why we have gone even wider to a 5.0m roll and developed the Jetrix RX5000,” said InkTec Europe MD Joey Kim.
