Azonprinter, a Croatia-based worldwide manufacturer of digital inkjet solutions and Modico U.S., a leader in production and distribution of stamping and marking products, have expanded their cooperation and strengthened their presence in the North American market. After years of collaboration in Europe, Azon and Modico U.S. began demonstrating the Matrix series of wide-format flatbed digital inkjet printers at tradeshows in North America starting in the fall of 2017.
The award-winning Azon Matrix UV series offers UV-LED inkjet printing solutions with optional bed sizes of 22.4” x 47.2”, 22.4” x 70.9” and 42.1” x 94.5” – which are capable of handling heavy materials up to 220 lbs. for indoor, outdoor and industrial applications. The series extends productivity and creativity by printing directly onto any type of material – such as PET, ABS, polycarbonate, TPU, PVC, wood, stone, glass, canvas, ceramic, aluminum and leather, said the OEM. The series also features monoblock construction for “unmatched” rigidity and durability, which offers numerous advantages – including easy relocation of the printer to optimize printing and production needs. Its high-precision leadscrew technology provides greater reliability and repeatability, as well as increased performance and accuracy.
The Matrix’s Dual-Security mode offers automatic thickness detection and protects the printheads from unseen damage, while its powerful zoned vacuum system keeps materials flat and allows printing on soft and thin substrates “with remarkable precision.” In order to maintain accurate, high-quality printing even during long production runs, Azonprinter incorporated six specially designed 500-ml bulk ink tanks with monitoring sensors which are built to meet the demands of high-volume operations. Azon Matrix is ideal for sign makers, printing houses, commercial printers, gift stores and photographers. Its extremely high resolution of 2880 dpi is ideal for high-volume output while maintaining outstanding imaging quality. The versatility of white ink as a base for high-density CMYK layered printing can delivers unusual and creative textures on all materials. The Azon Rotax adapter for cylindrical printing further expands printing possibilities.
