Equipped with industrial high-resolution and high-speed DOD piezoelectric print heads, Venus meets the increasing and rigorous demands for the applications of mailings, barcodes, bills, checks, packages, and marking.

Venus is suitable for web printing, sheet-fed, and both online and offline target printing. As a fully integrated digital inkjet print engine, it can be easily integrated into existing transport systems thanks to its modular design to create more value-added opportunities. 

  • Monochrome or Full Color
  • 600 dpi print resolution
  • Up to 150m/min
  • UV Curing or water-based ink
  • Based on DOD piezo electric inkjet print head
  • Involving multiple patented technologies

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.

Automatic Print Head Maintenance for Venus C54
Based on an all-in-one design concept, the small and compact Print Head Maintenance Module allows automatic purging, wiping and capping (PWC) for convenient unattended operation.
