INX’s CP100 UV digital cylindrical printer gives designers and brand owners opportunities to create cost efficient short runs, proofs and prototypes in a few seconds. It delivers superior quality single or multi-color images at incredibly fast speeds using the latest in patent pending helical printing software. In booth 3C15, the CP100 will be demonstrated alongside a Roland® VersaCAMM™ digital printer that gives decorators the option to produce can-wrap proofs.
