Xante’ introduced two exciting new flatbed UV printers to thousands of attendees at this year’s PRINT 19 Expo in Chicago. The X-16 and X-33 UV Printers are designed to meet the needs of commercial and in-plant operations which are seeking economical and compact solutions for printing on the widest range of substrates possible. “Xante’ recognizes the demands placed on today’s commercial print providers for more efficient and varied printing capabilities. Our new flatbed UV printers, the X’s, give them the ability to deliver unique printed materials with amazing quality, easily and quickly, and of course as with all Xante’ Products the X’s are driven with our iQueue Adobe Postscript PDF Workflow.” said Robert Ross, President and CEO of Xante’.
PRINT 19 attendees were amazed at the printers’ compact profile that fits comfortably in any shop. The X’s include simultaneous printing with white ink and CMYK inks allowing the ability to print on the widest range of substrates including acrylic, metal, glass, ceramics and so much more. Adjustable height print heads for both models accommodate substrates up to 6” tall. The X-33 printer features a 24” x 36” bed with vacuum suction to hold substrates stable during printing. The X-16 features a compact 18” x 24” bed. Both printers deliver high-quality, full-color printing at up to 1440 dpi resolution.
The X’s are powered by iQueue, Xante’s Adobe® PostScript® 3 PDF-based workflow software which powers the entire line of Xante’ innovative products. From independent CMYK ink control, to color profile management, to variable data printing, to integrated white ink control without modifying the original file, iQueue workflow software is the easiest to learn full-featured workflow software available to commercial print providers. Included at no charge with every Xante’ printer, iQueue enables seamless preparation of print jobs including one-click multi-up imposition, variable serial numbering, and barcode creation from sixteen different barcode symbologies. Full USPS-approved address presorting with iQueue Mail, included with iQueue for free, allows print providers to prepare and print ready-to-mail items on the X-16 or X-33 for their bulk mailing customers.
The X-16 and X-33 UV printers join the X-32 Industrial UV Printer in the line of dependable UV printing solutions from Xante’. “The desirability of UV printing among commercial print providers and in-plants is increasing every year,” said Mark Priede, Xante’ Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. “These new products extend the reach of Xante’ in this market and provide our customers with an excellent variety of solutions from which to choose. The enthusiasm shown by everyone who visited our booth at PRINT 19 proves that the X-16 and X33 will be a hit for print providers.”
The X-16 and X-33 will be available in November 2019 directly from Xante’ and its global network of independent dealers.
