  • Print on Roll & Rigid Media
  • 1200 × 600dpi


Flexible Media Handling System

SL16 accepts both flexible roll media and rigid substrates from films to boards, enabling you to expand your business with various applications of high printing quality. Thanks to the roll-to-roll release & take-up system, SL16 easily handles any wide-format roll media within 130kg weight. While with an optional foldable supporting table, it supports printing on rigid substrates up to 16mm thickness and 12kg weight with a minimal footprint.
Superior White Ink Printing

  • Printing with the high density white inks, SL16 offers bright and vivid colors on transparent and colored media. Thanks to the separate white ink circulation system, SL16 easily keeps the white ink properly mixed at all times for consistent and reliable printing.
  • Coming with professional ColorPRINT RIP software, SL16 enables over-printing for backlit applications on transparent materials, under-printing for colored materials, printing white out of images, or printing white as a spot color.
