Print directly on cylindrical or tapered mugs

TBM is designed specifically for the decoration of various types of mugs, including tapered and cylindrical mugs. Dedicated UV ink and varnish, as well as various pretreatment methods, ensure that the TBM printer is suitable for a wide range of materials, including ceramics, metals, paper, plastics, wood, glass, etc.

Compared with traditional methods, TBM greatly reduces the production process and saves time. Thanks to our excellent UV inkjet technology, TBM has the ability to decorate mugs with more complex, vivid, and detailed images compared to other digital technologies. TBM is the best choice for personalized printing, customized printing, and short-run printing for various types of mugs.

Complete Digital Printing System

Printable Size

  • Feeding direction (R-axis): 280° of the mug

  • Printing length (Y-axis): within 360 mm (14.17”)

  • Printing area: from the bottom of the mug to the top

Please refer to the data sheet on the back cover for the sizes of printed objects.

Flexible Fixture Design and Operation Process

  • One printer comes with two sets of clamping fixtures as standard. Two sets of fixtures are used alternately for printing, loading and unloading, thereby eliminating waiting time.

  • Each set of fixture can hold one to four mugs, which will be printed as one print job. Each fixture is equipped with an pneumatic pressure clamp that keep each mugs aligned, and coaxially clamp into place.

  • The fixture supports mugs of different diameters and lengths.

Proprietary UV Curing Control Technology

Segmented UV curing control
The irradiation area of the UV lamp is divided into several segments, and each segment can be individually controlled for activation to achieve maximum print productivity and optimal print quality.

Final curing plus pinning
UV-LED pinning “freezes” ink droplets to control dot gain before overlaying follow-up colors for optimal printing quality. All pinned inks will finally pass underneath a final cure UV LED lamp. Pinning and final curing can be automatically switched.


  • The Exhaust & Filtration System removes and filters floating ink particles in the printing area to offer an environmentally friendly operating area and high-quality prints.
  • By monitoring the printing status of the printhead in real-time, the Automatic Print Head Protection System can prevent the printhead from being scratched or exposed to UV light during printing.

  • Based on an all-in-one design concept, the small and compact Print Head Maintenance Module allows automatic purging, wiping and capping for convenient unattended operation.

  • The simple and intuitive 10” Color LCD Touch Screen provides loading & unloading control, printhead maintenance, and real-time printing parameter settings.
