Features


Versatile Media Handling System

SL16 accepts both flexible media and rigid substrates from films to boards, enabling you to expand your business with various applications of high quality printing. Thanks to the roll-to-roll release & take-up system, SL16 easily handles various wide-format flexible media within 130kg. While with an optional foldable supporting table, it supports printing on rigid substrates up to 10mm thick and 12kg with a minimal footprint.
Superior White Ink Printing
  • Printing with the high density white ink, 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 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.
