Digital Printing System uses UV-curable inks.

Press Release Summary:

Small format SureFire(TM) TKMP 1000 integrates any SureFire Digital Print Engine with flatbed handling system that can be configured to print true 600 x 600 dpi mono-color or multicolor images. System prints on rigid or flexible substrates up to 1 x 1 m and up to 6 in. thick at speeds up to 250 sq ft/hr. When hybrid UV-curable jetting inks hit room temperature substrate, they freeze in position and do not require pinning to maintain drop integrity.

Aellora(TM) Digital Introduces SureFire(TM) Small Format Digital Printing System

Highly Dependable DOD Ink Jet Printing System for UV-Curable White and Other Color Inks

Keene, N.H. (January 6, 2006) -- Aellora(TM) Digital, a MARKEM company providing digital chemistries, drop-on-demand ink jet systems and services for commercial, graphic and other digital printing, imaging and dispensing applications, has introduced its new SureFire(TM) TKMP 1000 Small Format Digital Printing Systems for jetting its high performance hybrid UV-curable white and color jetting inks. These fully integrated turnkey print systems are designed for industrial use offering high print outputs for a broad range of substrates types and thicknesses.

The SureFire TKMP 1000 integrates any of our SureFire Digital Print Engines with a production robust flatbed handling system that can be configured to print a true 600 x 600 DPI mono-color or multicolor image on rigid or flexible substrates up to a 1 x 1 meter square and up to 6 inches (15cm) thick at speeds of up to 250 square feet per hour. "These new turnkey offerings are in response to customers wanting a cost-effective industrial flatbed solution for smaller objects," says Mario Carluccio, Business Development Manager for Aellora. "We believe these digital print systems can fill that need by providing a low cost solution, which enables quick job turnaround and personalization capabilities on many types of materials. So, if you are screen or pad printing today, and are looking for a digital solution, we believe this system is for you."

The SureFire Digital Print Engine was developed for use with hybrid UV-curable jetting inks developed by Aellora Digital. These inks exhibit high viscosity characteristics at room temperature, but liquefy at elevated temperatures so when the ink drops hit the room temperature substrate; they immediately "freeze" in position and do not require pinning to maintain drop integrity. Since the drop size stays true, high resolution images, text and barcodes are possible on the widest variety of substrates, compared to traditional ink jet inks, including many papers, plastics, untreated glass, metals and ceramics. Hybrid UV-curable jetting inks provide high opacity with a single layer of ink and require only one exposure to UV-energy to cure all ink layers, reducing costs and increasing throughput, helping make this an economical and efficient printing solution.

Aellora Digital, through its MARKEM heritage in industrial printing solutions, has served the digital printing industry since the early 1980's. In addition to its established product offerings, the company also offers development and system certification services. Aellora Digital has a worldwide network of service and support with 24/7 coverage in over 50 countries. To learn more digitally printing with Aellora, visit
