Hollanders will showcase the ColorBooster DS Printer, a one step double sided printer capable of printing with a precision of 0.07mm on 3.20m width on both sides.
CEO Jacco Aartsen Tuijn said, 'A 100% double-sided print is not common at all nowadays and we have succeeded in developing it. The ColorBooster DS is now ready for its bigger market introduction at FESPA.'
'Tested at four very different customer sites on a range of polyester materials, we are not only opening the market for double sided signage but also for double sided home decoration and fashion,' said Peter Hollanders CTO.
Hollanders will be presenting the ColorBooster at FESPA (8-11 March 2015, in Amsterdam).
High quality coloured wovens, too expensive to produce in small quantities, discharge and resist print simulation or double sided curtains, can be printed and fixated in one step, the same as for double sided signage. These high quality double sided coloured fabrics are now achievable at much lower production costs and will therefore made available for a much wider consumer group. The creative possibilities are endless: Teflon-coated, velour, lightweight and heavy-duty, the ColorBooster DS can print them all and double sided.
The single sided ColorBooster 320, also first shown at FESPA, will set new standards in robust printing. Having all the environmental advantages of the ColorBooster DS, it is designed to offer users flexible modularity that can be upgraded in the field as and when needed. New at FESPA will be the possibility to upgrade, in the field, to a stacked head configuration and a speed of 120sqm/h.
Supplied with customer changeable Ricoh Gen5 heads, the CB 320 will be delivered with water based direct (high energy) disperse dyes typically very suitable for direct printing because of the high light fastness and production stability during fixation without bleeding or a halo.
Other typical features of the ColorBooster 320 are:
• Unique build-in head shower and auto-cleaning function.
• Open ink system.
• Hollanders High and Low energy disperse dye selection, water-based, non-toxic and odourless.
• Wide colour gamut and the highest UV resistance.
• In-line drying.
• Anti-ink-mist system.
• Optional internal printer temperature and humidity control makes workspace climate control redundant.
• A complete paper-free workflow, as well in printing as in fixation, which will save on resources.
• Low overall energy consumption.
• Small operating space.
• High functionality and productivity at the best sqm price.
