Our digital printers are constantly being refined to meet the most complex requirements

In the glass sector, many factories have always printed ceramic colours with screen printing machines, but today they are approaching digital with both multipass and single-pass. The new single-pass printing system generates great benefits and innovation for the manufacturers of automotive glass and home appliance glass with high productivity. The research and development of large ceramic ink companies have now created certified inks for both automotive and home appliance sectors.

The advantage of the digital process, compared to screen printing, is enormous. The management of a screen printing machine continuously requires artisanal workforce that is fundamental to avoid productivity decrease.

The openness to new technologies defines the boundary between old and new, generating industrial growth, expansion, and competitiveness that increases industrial production value

Today, the investment in these technologies may seem slightly high compared to a screen printing process, but analysing specifically, it is not. The advantages in detail of digital printing compared to screen printing are:

  1. no screen printing frames
  2. no cleaning of the frames at the end of production
  3. no frame storage and warehousing
  4. no mechanical glass centring
  5. multiple colours printing in a single pass
  6. doubled productivity compared to screen printing
  7. edge printing with absolute precision thanks to the optical centring system
  8. very high print quality
  9. no squeegee grinding
  10.  no machine downtime due to ink loading
  11.  no downtime for washing
  12.  no changeover time for production set-up
  13.  traceability of every single piece
  14.  remote production management
  15.  ink consumption and production management
  16.  possibility of multicolour printing in multiple rows.

The advantages of digital are indisputable and those are synonymous with economic savings, quality and productivity.
