Azonprinter has launched what it calls an “evolutionary” new-generation A1 UV LED machine that can print on materials up to 100mm thick.  The Mason has a maximum printing area of 590x700mm with specially designed bulk ink tanks with ink monitoring sensor to increase printing capacity.

    Azonprinter said that each of the six bulk ink tanks holds 500ml and is easy to handle, and that out-of-box installation provides safety and the ability to refill tanks from ink bottles to reduce running costs. 

    Azonprinter sales and marketing manager Žaklina Begi said: “Our target audiences are promotional and sign markets, graphic and other industries.

    “This machine is a good addition to existing technologies and could be interesting to owners of gift shops, artists and business people who want to personalise their services and products.”

    The Mason features single-pass printing in CMYK-plus-white, and new Azon RIP software offers a reproduction quality of 1,440dpi for fine image details.

    The machine can print on substrates and 3D objects in wood, canvas, ceramic and plastics, and Begi said unlike the previous generation of printers with belt systems, this machine has a servo motor to improve accuracy with the forward-backward movement of the printed object.

    UV LED pigmented inks in gloss and multi-coat effects, meanwhile, gives up to five years’ durability, she added.

   Recently Azonprinter launched a new rotary adaptor that enabled direct 360˚ printing on large bottles, glasses and candles.
