A software upgrade on the Jeti 3324 Solvent RTR can detect if any individual nozzle may be misfiring. It automatically compensates the saturation, safe-guarding the image output. This safe-proof technology is the first of its kind in the Grand Format arena.
A modular back-lit camera option gives printers the ability to print on both sides of material such as reinforced vinyl, pressure sensitive vinyl, canvas, fabrics, mesh and paper.
White and Clear Varnish are now standard options on all Jeti Flatbed Printers. Now print shops around the world can print with the 6 color option and switch to white or clear varnish without losing quality and time.
The Flexform UV Inks also will also be showcased. Gandinnovations formulated Flexform UV Inks for producing vacuum-formable images. In the past, stretching substrates caused the inks "pull apart," but now due to new technology and the consistency of Flexform UV Inks, printed images can withstand not only stretching, but the high heat necessary to produce high-quality end results.
