Industrial Inkjet Printer for Corrugated Board Printing
PF25 is a newly developed industrial inkjet printer for corrugated packaging or display applications, directly printing on a variety of uncoated and coated corrugated boards. Tailoring to actual demands of corrugated board printing, the PF25 printer specially utilizes industrial DOD piezo electric print heads with large droplet size of 27 - 54 pl to achieve outstanding print productivity as well as stunning print quality.
As a cost-effective and sustainable digital printing solution, the PF25 printer offers you the capability of medium- & short-run printing with quality consistency and variable date printing for fast, customized and high-quality corrugated board production.
Dual- & Single-sheet Printing Modes Expand Applications
Dual-sheet printing mode enables to print two jobs simultaneously, boosting print productivity dramatically, for each sheet with a minimum size of 600mm × 600mm and a maximum size of 1200mm × 1350mm. In single-sheet mode, the PF25 printer enables to print on a large corrugated board up to the size of 2500mm × 4000mm.
Accurate and Exquisite Color Reproduction
Advanced Degas System Achieves Reliable Printing
Dissolved gases will inevitably accumulate in the ink as a result of repeatedly pressurizing and decompressing the piezoelectric crystal. The hollow fiber membrane degas system (only for water-based ink) of PF25 efficiently eliminates air bubbles for consistent and reliable print quality.
Variable Data Printing Creates Added Value Applications
The PF25 printer works seamlessly with MagicPage VDP software and supports monochrome or colorful variable data printing, including texts, numbers, time, serial numbers, QR codes, etc., which can be varied without stopping or slowing down the printing. Variable data printing helps you create added value applications and obtain more business opportunities for personalized packaging and display printing.
Automatic Vacuum Media Feeding Mechanism Helps Save Time and Cost
The PF25 printer offers automatic and accurate media feeding mechanism, which is covered by multiple vacuum belts and driven by servo motors, achieving effective suction of boards and precise belt motion control. The vacuum system is divided into eight independently controlled zones to position boards with varied dimensions.
The PF25 printer supports automatic feeding of boards within 1350mm length and 2500mm width to save labor and time at the same time. The operator loads a pile of corrugated boards onto the preload table, and the mechanism undertakes the rest, stacking the printed boards in the collector for easy removal with stacker.
The double-inlet bulk ink tanks with liquid level sensors are easily used for adding ink and alarming for the shortage of ink.
The PF25 printer supports water-based or UV curable ink for different applications. Amica's water-based inks, with saturated colors, surface durability and water resistance, are specially developed together with PF25 for efficient and vivid uncoated corrugated board printing. UV curable inks have advantages of excellent hardness, durability and water resistance, and enable high throughput on a range of coated and uncoated corrugated boards.
