INX Digital International Debuts New Generation High-Speed UV-curable
Printer at FESPA
INX Digital International Co. today introduced the Milano™ DXN1, a new advanced-generation UV curable printer
for high-speed, single-pass scanning applications. The new printer will be displayed at FESPA Digital 2009,
which runs now through May 14 at the RAI International Exhibition and Congress Centre in Amsterdam, The
Engineered by Anteprima – which is now part of INX Digital - and manufactured by Italy’s Neolt in a joint venture,
the Milano DXN1 features variable-drop capabilities of the Xaar 1001 printhead. It is based on innovative Xaar
Hybrid Side-Shooter™ and TF Technology™ for accurate drop control, superior print quality and productivity at
speeds up to 1300 sq. ft. per hour. Show visitors can see it in action and learn more at the INX Digital Stand
(Hall 1 – C40) and at Neolt’s Stand (Hall 1 – H40).
Initially available in Europe through INX Digital and Neolt, the Milano DXN1 will be distributed globally through
the INX Digital network.
"The Milano DXN1 is the first printer of its type on the market with this single-pass scanning print mode," says
INX Digital’s Paolo Capano. "We are delivering advanced technology that can move the digital printing industry
forward, with engineering that incorporates advanced printheads originally designed for high-speed narrow web
label printing. Here they can provide both the high-resolution quality and print speed to make the Milano DXN1
a viable alternative for a vast array of additional applications."
"The decision to integrate the industrial strength Xaar 1001 printhead as a key component in the Milano DXN1
is an important endorsement of our technology," says Phil Eaves, Xaar Sales & Marketing Director. "The
ability to produce dynamically variable drop sizes is essential to meet the quality and performance required for
today’s demanding printing applications."
The drop size of the Xaar 1001 ranges from 6 to 42 picoliters. This enables the Milano DXN1 to achieve near
photo quality with up to 1200 dpi resolution at 40 square meters per hour. Output at the larger drop size can
extend up to 140 square meters, nearly 1300 square feet per hour.
Capano said INX Digital International combines this advanced technology with a full stable of proven
high-performance inks designed for the Xaar 1001 printhead by INX Digital UV ink specialists. Recognized
globally for consistent color quality and high adhesion on rigid material as well as flexible media, the inks are
aligned with the Milano DXN1’s ability to print directly onto flat sheets as well as roll-to-roll. The inks used are
from INX Digital’s own Triangle brand and Media options range from vinyl, banner and polyethylene — including
highly durable recyclable PE — to paper and textiles, as well as panel.
"The Milano DXN1 exemplifies the multi-faceted global capabilities that INX Digital International brings to the
marketplace," Capano said. "We are combining USA-based internal electronics engineering, Xaar printhead
technology and European manufacturing by Neolt, plus high-performance UV inks, to deliver a major advance
in digital printing capabilities."
