Flatbed UV Inkjet Printer

Polytype adds Nyala 2.

The Nyala 2 from Polytype Americas is the largest and highest-productivity machine in the firm’s swissQprint line of UV flatbed inkjet printers. It features a maximum print size of 80 x 126 in. and is available with up to 18 printheads and from 4-9 colors. Available colors include CMYK, light shades of all process colors, Pantone colors (orange, green, and violet), white, and special-effect varnish. Four print modes range from Fine Art to Speed (with speeds ranging from 344-2217 sq ft/hr in 2 x CMYK mode). A roll-to-roll option accommodates vinyl, tarpaulin, mesh, and other roll stock, and features an integrated control system to regulate tension and ensure registration. The board option allows for end-to-end printing of rigid boards up to 157.5 in. long and holds the stock under full vacuum power during the printing process, with a feed system that advances and registers the board automatically. The two-zone vacuum table allows for side-by-side tandem printing with stock loaded on one side of the table while the other is printing.
