Seiko Instruments says it is very much looking forward to finally appearing live again at InPrint after such a long time and has again brought exciting integration examples on board. Once again, ideeGO, a machine manufacturer and integrator for inkjet systems, will be there. This time with a prototype that prints vertically with a print gap between the print head and the substrate of more than 10 mm.
Whether vertical, horizontal or even from below – digital inkjet printing from all conceivable print directions – these are not a problem for the recirculating RC1536. With its machine ‘Backtrack’ – People & Technology from Spain impressively demonstrates how easy it is to code and mark from bottom using the RC1536.
People & Technology is diversifying into new sectors and markets with Backtrack which is one of the latest products it has developed. The company says Bactrack challenges the laws of digital printing written so far, with the new system it has developed making it possible to print on the reverse of current systems, which enables high-resolution printing in areas that were previously inaccessible.
The integrated advanced printing software allows production traceability, printing dynamic designs in which the image changes as the units go through, bar codes, QR, the date, time and personalized labels. The versatility of working with different ink formulations has sparked interest and is being warmly welcomed in other industrial sectors. Its small size helps integrate it into any part of the production system.
C-marx, a system integrator from Chemnitz that specialises in the field of additive manufacturing, will show a teaser of what will be unveiled at Seiko’s second OpenWeek in June. A robot arm created in cooperation with the Fraunhofer ENAS Printed Functionalities department that can apply coatings to almost any two and three-dimensional substrates.
Seiko Instruments will be at stand 2764 in Hall A4 at InPrint. The company is looking forward to welcoming show visitors after a long time.
