PACPRINT VIDEO: Print and emboss in one pass
Printers in Australia and New Zealand are able to see the one-pass Dimense print and emboss system, with Stick-on-Signs bringing the innovative technology to PacPrint, which the company says will enable print businesses to add an extra revenue stream.
The Dimense prints and embosses in one pass, thanks to an inkjet engine and a calendar press in the same machine. It prints at 20sqm an hour on a 1.6m roll, with an emboss of up to 1.5mm. Abe Weiszberger, managing director at importer Stick on Signs says, “The pioneering technology of Dimense prints and embosses in a single step. That means structure and motif are perfectly matched."
Typical applications include home and office decor, point of sale and signage material. Finishing choices include matte, allowing use of the brightest colours, gold which Weiszberger describes as a "see it to believe it" media finish, pearlescent to add the wow factor to any print, chameleon for advertising, packaging, and interior decors, media plus for an enhanced embossing effect, up to 1.5mm, and silver for wherever a metallic finish is required.
Weiszberger says, “Most importantly, the Dimense System is totally green. The inks used are water-based latex, the process is PVC and plasticiser free, and all products and ingredients used in the process are non-toxic and certified harmless with the eco-Institut-Label in Europe."
According to Weiszberger anyone who can operate a simple wide format printer can operate the Dimense.
