360° Seamless Tapered Object & Cylinder Printing

The TBC UV-LED inkjet printer is specially engineered for direct printing on tapered objects and cylinders, such as cups, bottles, tins and cans, and supports a wide range of materials, including metal, glass, paper, wood and plastic.

Compared with traditional printing techniques, such as pad printing, screen printing, and label printing, TBC has prominent advantages in being free from plates, fast warm-up, as well as short turnaround time. TBC is an ideal choice for short-run printing, customized printing, and package proofing.

Complete Digital Printing System 

Perfect 360° Seamless Rotary Printing on Tapered Objects & Cylinders

Thanks to the Rotational Print Pass Method (RPPM) and Special Print Head Arrangement Method, TBC is endowed with amazing print productivity and print quality for tapered objects and cylinders. The Ink Droplet Conversion Algorithm realizes consistent resolutions and stable visual effects for bottle or cup sets in different sizes. TBC also uses the Ink Droplet Compensation Algorithm to avoid image deformation on different sections of the tapered object, and ensure excellent visual effect.

  • 360° Seamless Printing without Gaps and Overlaps

  • Double-Sided Printing on transparent materials
  • Embossed Printing on glass candle holder

  • High-Drop Printing on irregular or uneven surfaces
  • Packaging Application for short-run printing, customized printing, and proofing

Fixture Connector with Adjustable Angles

With standard connector available, operators can install corresponding fixtures according to specific shapes, dimensions or structures of their printed objects to achieve accurate positioning and tightly fastening, ensuring stable high-speed rotation, quick loading, and quick unloading.
Equipped with the angle adjustment device, TBC will lead you to high quality final color prints, including trendy tapered open cups and neat cylindrical thermos bottles.


  • Automatic Print Head Protection System monitors whether the print heads will be scratched or exposed to UV lights, and immediately stops the movement of the carriage in case of the emergency situations, effectively ensuring the safety of print heads.

  • 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.

  • Positioning Sensors indicate the position of the print object and enable to quickly set the printing area, achieving efficient and precise printing.
