Key Features of the XpertJet 1462UF

Both high productivity and high image quality in bi-directional printing enable faster 2-layer printing

- Two new 4” wide UV LED lamps

Newly developed 4-inch wide UV-LED lamps are placed on both sides of the print head. Combined with "UV-LED local dimming control technology," which individually controls the UV-LED lamp irradiation for each segment according to the printing conditions, it achieves optimal ink curing even in bi-directional printing.

Dual print heads in a staggered setup

Staggered dual printheads ensure high-productivity. The first head prints CMYK, the second head prints white/ varnish, which enable 2-layer printing without speed loss. It is ideal for braille and 2.5D structure prints.*ADA-compliant Braille printing will be supported in NorthAmerica.
