Versatile Ink Applications
Venus 108-PWC offers two kinds of ink systems to satisfy different application requirements. Depending on media and substrates, UV ink system or Water-based ink system can be configured. UV curing inks have advantages of extensive material applicability and durability. They can be printed on a wide range of coated or uncoated substrates, including plastic cards, paper, and metals. The earth-friendly water-based inks can be printed on coated paper.

Easy for Mounting and Alignment

The actual physical resolution of the Print Head Module is up to 600dpi. The patented, multi-angle adjustment mounting bracket enables the operator to adjust the angle of the X, Y, and Z-axis directions for each Print Head Module. Users can adjust the relative position of print heads easily and precisely.

Various & Movable Printing Positions

The target printing position of variable data usually changes with different printing jobs. Venus enables you to precisely adjust the printing position of the variable data to meet the demands of each job.

Intellectual Print Head Maintenance Technology

Based on an all-in-one design integrating the Print Head Module and the Print Head Maintenance Module, the compact Venus 108-PWC allows automatic purging, wiping and capping for convenient unattended operation. The latest all-in-one design not only simplifies the wiping process but realizes loading & unloading modularization and control automation at the same time.
