Features


  • Versatile Ink Applications

Venus 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 curable inks have advantages of excellent hardness and durability. They can be printed on a wide range of coated and 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

Users can adjust the relative position of two print heads easily and precisely. 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.


  • 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.


  • Highly-efficient Double-speed and Triple-speed Printing

Venus 54D/ 54T adopts the proprietary image data processing and digital inkjet printing technologies, realizing double-speed and triple-speed printing without compromising the printing precision.


  • Hexachrome Printing

Venus C54H adds two colors to the basic CMYK, realizing hexachrome and a wider color gamut, as well as achieving better color reproduction and presenting more vivid images.
