Intelligent Media Handling for Efficient Workflow

Automatic media loading and automatic media type detection simplified the media loading and replacement workflow to just one step, which is to "simply place the roll" into the printer. Printer will automatically carry out necessary adjustment and enters print-ready state with minimal supervision. Automatic remaining media estimation will display remaining roll amount on operation panel and send out alert when media is not sufficient to complete the print job.

Support RIPs and High Precision Colour Stability

Support printing environment with RIPs to meet the diverse output workflows of professional users from design companies, print services, as well as comps and proofs. Besides that, colour calibration performed by the built-in multi-sensor ensures repeatable results can be reproduced easily across printers.

Productivity at Its Peak

Optional dual-roll feeding unit enables users to load up to two rolls of media, reducing the frequency of switching between different media types or sizes in high volume printing. The sub ink tank system allows empty ink tanks to be replaced while the printer continues to print, maximising productivity.

Borderless Printing

Borderless printing can be achieved on standard and custom width for all supported media. The printer is also capable of three-sided edge-to-edge printing on various sizes that do not match the roll paper width. This allows more flexibility in borderless printing task as borderless print of various sizes can be produced from a single roll of media.

Unparalleled Security

Print jobs and data are encrypted and transmitted through secured protocol throughout the print process. Secure file and disk erasure, user access restriction and printer functionality restriction further prevent information leaks and other security risks, result in unparalleled security.




The five newly developed colours, red, orange, green, violet including the fluorescent pink, offer a wide colour gamut and high colour performance, producing vibrant and eye-catching hues from pastels to neon variations.

FINE Print Head logo

FINE Print Head

Equipped with micron-sized nozzles, the fully integrated print head provides superb uniformity of ink density and colours, while multi-pass printing ensures highest print quality is maintained on every print.


L-COA PRO Image Processing Engine

L-COA PRO imaging processor is capable of processing massive image data, drives high printing speed while maintaining supreme print quality, enabling fast first print out time and continuous printing speed.

Non-Firing Detection and Compensation System

Equipped with in-built sensor, the non-firing detection and compensation system checks the ink ejection from print head nozzles and when a blockage is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup. This prevents banding and reduces the frequency of print head cleaning required.

Radiant Infusion

The new Radiant Infusion technology allows the fluorescent ink to be precisely layered on the paper surface along with other inks such as yellow and magenta, which helps to make the print bright and vivid by taking advantage of the light emission from the fluorescent ink. In this way, colours that are difficult to reproduce with a conventional aqueous inkjet printer are rendered vividly and brightly. Easy creation of high-impact graphics can be achieved.
