Mouvent – a new company founded by a joint venture between Bobst and Radex has  introduced new technology for digital inkjet printing which uses clusters instead of fixed size print bars by colour, arranging them in a modular, scalable matrix. The result is one system that can be adapted for all substrates, of all widths, for all markets.
“This is game-changing technology,” said Piero Pierantozzi, Co-founder of Mouvent. “Until now, printing systems have been tailor-made to the requirements of each industry. The clustertechnology is completely flexible and can be adapted and used for any market and any substrate. We believe this will completely revolutionize digital printing, making it more accessible, more flexible, cheaper and simpler, while maintaining the highest quality standards.”
The cluster technology was developed by Radex, a start-up company owned by multiple stakeholders with a long track record in the field of DOD inkjet digital printing. Radex and BOBST created Mouvent as a joint venture in June 2017. The cluster technology is the centerpiece of revolutionary new machines developed by Mouvent for a wide variety of markets such as textile, labels, corrugated board, flexible packaging, folding carton and more.
Mouvent has already revealed some of their machines including the 8-color digital textile printing machine TX801 with a print resolution of up to 2000 dpi with an output of up to 200 sqm/h.  Mouvent has also announced its first range of label printing solutions, which include two all-new, high speed 7-color UV ink printers (LB701-UV and LB702-UV).
