The Italian manufacturer NoeCha is to launch a second wide format printer, the NoeCha Dot1, at the upcoming Drupa show. It’s said to be a compact version of the existing NoeCha1.
It’s a UV printer that uses LED curing. It’s capable of 1200 x 1200 dpi native resolution with a single pass. It uses multiple drop sizes from 1.5 picolitres to 3.5pl. The bed takes media up to 3.2 x 1.6m and has 21 vacuum zones. It comes with a CMYK inkset with an option to use white.
The heads can be changed to give 600×600 dpi resolution. In a few months NoeCha will also add an option for semi-automatic loading as well as a roll-to-roll option.
NoeCha has also added more features to its much larger NoeCha 1 printer. These include a fully automatic feeder and stacker system.
Both systems will be shown at Drupa, with the Dot1 commercially available right after the show.
