Axzyra develops industrial printer with conveyor

Axzyra has developed a fairly unique product – a small footprint Flexible conveyor-fed UV cure printer with swappable product holders – which is called the Apache Flux.

The Apache Flux is a small industrial inkjet printer with a conveyor belt.

Axzyra is a small British company based near Cambridge that develops niche inkjet products. This includes the Apache flatbed range of small format industrial flatbed printers. The new Apache Flux builds on these by using a conveyor in place of the flatbed, with jigs to hold different shaped objects such as golf balls or pens for printing. Axzyra says that its tests show a 3-fold increase in throughput over a conventional flatbed.

Managing director Steve Woods explains: “There is a need for a continuous production machine at an affordable budget for the smaller businesses whom have built up their business with smaller manual load UV flatbed printers and are now are looking to expand with either more manual load /unload machines, which means more operators or look to have an automated system.”

The printer takes materials up to 150mm high, and 620mm wide, with a maximum printable width of 600mm.

There’s an option to fit rear output hoppers to speed up the throughput by unloading these items without manual intervention.

The actual printing is through greyscale Ricoh GH2200 printheads with a  maximum 4800 x 720 dpi resolution. It uses LED UV curing and prints CMYK plus White with varnish as an option.

The Flux should cost around £32,000, depending on specification. You can find more details about Axzyra on its website at www.axzyra.com.
