Inktec to launch LXi8 LED wide format

Inktec has said that it will launch its latest wide format flatbed printer, the Jetrix LXi8, at the Sign and Digital show, which takes place at the end of March at the NEC, near Birmingham, UK.

Inktec’s new Jetrix LXi8 is a 3.2m flatbed printer with LED UV inks.

The LXi8 is a 3.2m wide flatbed that uses Inktec’s latest generation LED UV inks. It can produce up to 206 sqm/hr. It uses the latest Konica Minolta print heads and boasts resolution of 1080 x 720 dpi. It has a zonal vacuum system with automated pin registration for media placement. It takes media up to 3.2 x 2m up to a thickness of 100mm.

Ben Woodruff, head of sales for Inktec Europe, said: “The LXi8 will open up exciting new printing opportunities for sign and display companies, thanks to its speed and efficiency coupled with optimal printing results.”

Inktec will also show off a new latex media developed specifically for HP latex printers, which is tacky without being sticky and has the ability to re-apply and stay in position. It is available in satin and gloss finishes and is very competitive on price. In addition, Inktec will show new eco-solvent inks for Mimaki and Roland printers, as well as sublimation inks for printers using the Epson DX4, DX5 and DX7 printheads.
