Arctec will debut the Trojan3 overprinting system and Scorpio SCR22PL offline finishing system for labels on demand at the Africa Print Cape Town expo, taking place from 15-16 March at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
The Trojan3 overprinting system can be mounted in any host system which runs at speeds of up to 18 metres per minute, enabling high quality 4-colour printing on all materials with an absorbable surface. These include most kinds of uncoated papers and cardboards or materials that are pre-treated for aqueous inkjet printing. The flexibility of the overprinting system means that it can be used to print on flat objects such as unfolded boxes or labels, thick objects like blister envelopes and wooden planks or even folded boxes ready for shipment.
Built to meet the demand of the short run label finishing, the Scorpio SCR22PL is the ideal companion for inkjet and digital label printing. Full user flexibility allows for the limitless label designs and shapes without the need for expensive dies. It allows users to produce professional grade, full bleed labels on demand with versatility and precision. The Scorpio software works together with a camera, forming an integrated optical black-mark registration system. The camera detects the black mark printed on the media and the software matches it to the cut file created using CorelDRAW or Adobe Illustrator.
Also being showcased is the TrojanTwo, the first offer to the market of an affordable mini digital press, which has the characteristics of the larger and more expensive systems. The press runs at 18m/min and up to 1600 x 1600 dpi. With sophisticated algorithms and a self-maintaining system, it can run larger volumes and maintain high print quality.
