Industrial Direct-to-Fabric Inkjet Printer
Taking account of the characteristics and dimensional stability of textile substrates, Amica designs and manufactures CR33 industrial direct-to-fabric inkjet printer. From highly integrated print head carriage, ink supply system, platen with a trough, media feeding system, to multi-station drying system, CR33 is tailored to printing with water-based dye or pigment inks onto a wide variety of textile substrates, especially on polyester and open-weave fabrics. CR33 can be customized based on different industrial DOD piezoelectric grayscale print heads to satisfy various application needs. Because the construction of the printer is sturdy, the printing quality remains stable even at high-speed printing mode.
Owing to the proven halftone algorithms embedded in ColorPRINT RIP software, CR33 offers you high-quality prints with smooth gradients, brilliant and vivid colors, and soft skin tones. CR33 also provides better and sufficient penetration of inks in textile substrates so that the printed fabrics like flags can achieve a high “see-through” effect. CR33 is your ideal choice for digital textile applications, including soft signage, clothing, and home textiles.
Grayscale and light color printing. CR33 can print with the inks of CMYK or CMYKLcLm. Amica’s proprietary Variable Droplet Size control technology combining with light color printing allows superior quality prints with soft skin tones, smooth gradients, as well as crisp and clear small-size texts and lines. You will not only benefit from low ink consumption, but also obtain high-quality final prints.
Advanced degas system. Dissolved gases will inevitably accumulate in the ink as a result of repeatedly pressurizing and decompressing the piezoelectric crystal. The hollow fiber membranes in the degas system of CR33 efficiently eliminate the air bubbles that may impact on nozzle performance for consistent and reliable print quality.
Powerful color management system (CMS). CR33 supports professional color management workflow and is compatible with various international standard ICC profiles. Users are allowed to establish, modify and manage ICC profiles according to their own needs, while consistent and accurate color reproduction can be achieved with high printing efficiency.
Color book and special color. Color Book in ColorPRINT enables you to define a range of color swatches. After printing swatches on target media and completing the finishing processes, you can choose your desired swatch and enter its color value into the Special Color Library in ColorPRINT or your design applications. All you do will empower you to print out exact colors efficiently and easily.
Exquisite and Seamless Repeated Images
Step & Repeat. You just need to add a single repeat into ColorPRINT, rather than wasting time to create huge files containing many repeats in design applications. ColorPRINT also offers a lot of settings to adjust your repeats, such as shift size, mirror types and the control of drop, slide or diagonal.
Step & Repeat
Accurate Release and Take-up System
The release and take-up system of CR33 is specially designed for handling the advancement of fabrics on a wide-format inkjet printer. The effective media path makes it easy to load heavy rolls tightly and straightly. It also ensures steps of the fabrics are constant and avoids the touch between the print head and the fabric.

Highly Integrated Carriage
Efficient Drying System
The Drying System is consisted of pre-drying module, ink mist extraction device and post-drying module. The efficient drying system achieves better ink absorption so that inks can be dried before fabrics are rewound.
Home textiles: curtains, upholstery fabrics, lampshades, table clothes, etc.
Clothing: fashion clothes, sportswear, swim suits, jackets, etc.
Soft signage: flags, banners, indoor graphics, tapestries, pennants, pop displays, exhibition displays, etc.
