DUALSPIN
High Productivity UV-LED Inkjet Printer for Taper / Cylinder Printing

With comprehensive R&D on printing technologies, machinery, software, woklflow optimization and ink chemistries, AMICA is proud to release DualSpin revolutionized color UV-LED inkjet printer with 2 × 2 operation stations. DualSpin is specially engineered for high-efficiency 360° seamless printing on tapers/ cylinders, such as cups, bottles, tins, and cans.


Compared with traditional taper/ cylinder printing, like pad printing, screen printing and label printing, DualSpin has prominent advantages in being free from plates, fast warm-up, short turnaround time, as well as customized printing. Also superior to digital thermal transfer printers, DualSpin owns more simplified workflow, easier operation and lower cost. With Variable Droplet Size control technology and light color printing,DualSpin is specialized in producing soft skin tones, smooth gradients and vivid images on tapers/ cylinders, not being achieved with other printing technologies. DualSpin is an ideal choice for taper/ cylinder printing in short- & medium-run, customized and personalized production, package proofing applications, etc.

Features


2×2 Operation Stations Accomplish High-efficiency Production

DualSpin achieves high-efficiency production of short- & medium-run taper/ cylinder decoration featuring twin-bottle simultaneous printing and 2×2 operation stations for loading, printing, curing and unloading.


  • 2×2 operation stations move in and out alternately for continuous printing of tapers/ cylinders, optimizing production workflows and accomplishing effective industrial inkjet printing.
  • For tapered cup printing, DualSpin adopts unique calibration technology to ensure that all the 4 cups at the stations are horizontal with the same angle, so as to obtain uniform printing quality and effect.
  • Advanced control technology enables stable and consistent printing quality for jobs at the 2×2 stations even in a long time of production.

Customized Printing Methods & Algorithms

Through relentless exploration and practice, we have developed DualSpin integrated multiple proven and innovative technologies of great significance to achieve perfect print output effects on tapered/ cylindrical objects.


Highlights


Automatic Print Head Protection System monitors whether the print heads will be scratched or exposed to UV lights, effectively ensuring the safety of print heads. 
Based on an all-in-one design concept, the small and compact Print Head Maintenance Module allows utomatic purging, wiping and capping for convenient unattended operation.


Automatic Ink Supply System monitors and controls ink levels of the main/ sub ink tanks with liquid level sensors.

We offer a range of UV curable inks with bright colors, as well as advantages of excellent hardness, durability and scratch, chemical, and water resistance. They are specifically developed for direct printing on metal, plastic, glass, wood and other tapered/ cylindrical objects.


Fixture Extendability Offers More Creativity
DualSpin allows to print onto objects at the 2×2 stations with 40-120mm in diameter and 0-270mm in length.
You can configure fixtures connected to 2×2 angle adjusted connectors to meet specific demands, including cylindrical thermos bottles and tapered open cups, making the possibilities for inkjet printing endless.
