Designed for the label, packaging and direct product printing market, full-color, high quality and use of challenging substrates differentiate this printer family from the competition.
Atlantic Zeiser is to demonstrate its GAMMA™ 70 series of full-color UV print engines at FESPA. The GAMMA™ series delivers outstanding visual print quality up to 1060 dpi, and is ideal for ‘wet-on-wet’ requirements in the pattern application process, as well as pinning (GAMMA™ 70 and GAMMA™ 140 Premium) for texts, pictures and logotypes.
Atlantic Zeiser Group, a leading innovator and technology supplier for industrial digital label, packaging, direct product and decoration printing processes, will demonstrate at FESPA Digital its innovative GAMMA™ 70 print engine, part of the comprehensive GAMMA printer family.
GAMMA™ 70 combines Atlantic Zeiser’s innovation with Xaar printhead technology to create a powerful solution that includes a UV printer, UV inks, and UV curing capability. GAMMA™ 70 is available in two models: GAMMA™ 70S (standard) and GAMMA™ 70P (premium). FESPA Digital takes place 24-27 May 2011, and is being staged in Hamburg, Germany.Atlantic Zeiser can be found in Hall A2, Stand B72.
“The GAMMA™ 70 family of printers is proving very popular in many packaging operations, including pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food packaging,” said Ralf Hipp, Vice President of Digital Systems. “However, the systems are also suitable for use in other print markets. Customers are benefiting from exceptional ink adhesion, even on challenging porous and non-porous substrates, including plastics and films, metallic foils, cardboard and paper. The machines also enable users to bring complex production in-house and produce full-color variable labels with a stunning visual quality of 1060 dpi. We are excited to see the reception this unique solution will receive from visitors to our stand at FESPA Digital.”
The GAMMA™ 70 Series is based on established GAMMA™ printing technology, which has proven very successful in the ID card market. It is the perfect solution for a wide range of applications in the industrial digital printing market, and helps users increase productivity and margins.
The GAMMA™ 70 Series combines Xaar 1001 printheads with Atlantic Zeiser controller and data preparation software. It is ideal for a wide range of markets, including packaging, labeling, commercial print, in-plant printing of consumer goods, security print and card printing.
This high-speed, single-pass UV solution incorporates Xaar 1001 grayscale print heads, and produces stunning quality at a high resolution of 360 dpi, which visually appears to be as high as 1060 dpi. With a print width of 70.5mm (2.8 in), the GAMMA™ 70 can be integrated in-line with sheetfed, web or single-product systems.
The variable drop capability of the industrial-strength Xaar 1001 printhead consistently produces smooth tone graphics, fine detail, sharp text and barcodes to generate great results quickly, cost effectively and reliably. The GAMMA 70 Series is also highly flexible as an industrial-level, full-color marking system. A choice of UV curing systems is also available to suit specific applications. These include Atlantic Zeiser's new eco-friendly SMARTCURE UV LED curing system for temperature-sensitive products. UV LED curing is especially suited to thin materials that can be damaged by heat used in traditional label-based UV curing.
The GAMMA™ 70 Series can operate in a single-pass printing process at a top speed of 24m/minute.
Four models available
The GAMMA™ 70 and GAMMA™ 140 are available in two models for each print width:
- GAMMA™ 70S/140S is the standard model for wet-on-wet printing in the pattern application process
- GAMMA™ 70P/140P is the premium model that is well suited for both pinning and wet-on-wet for sharp texts, barcodes, pictures and fine details and logotypes
The modules are compact in size, which is especially important in space-constrained facilities. The GAMMA™ 70 Series can be installed on a complete web system as a standalone system; leveraged as part of an integration package for OEM integration on a wide range of label machinery; or integrated by end users into existing analog systems.
“Early customer feedback has been exceptional,” added Hipp. “By bringing the GAMMA™ 70 Series to FESPA Digital, we can help educate users in a broad range of markets – from packaging and labeling to product printing and commercial printing – about the commercial benefits they can achieve by adding these solutions to their infrastructures.”
