Inkcups Transparent Pin Curing for Helix Printers

Traditionally, UV inkjet printing on clear vessels requires a stuffing agent known as a “foxtail” to block the UV light from curing the ink and damaging the print heads. Recently Inkcups introduces a new feature for Helix digital cylinder printers: Transparent Pin Curing.

Transparent Pin Curing (TPC) is a specialized system that enables UV inkjet printing on clear products such as plastic bottles, glassware, spirit, and wine bottles without the need to add a UV-blocking agent into the vessel. With this new patent-pending technology, containers remain uncontaminated and sterile on the inside and print head life is protected. As an added benefit, removal of this extra step thanks to the TPC system also streamlines the production process.

The TPC system is available as a field-upgradable retrofit for existing Helix printers or on new Helix machines. These include the Helix Digital Cylinder Printer and Helix Hi-Fi Photorealistic Rotary UV Printer.

“We have been developing and testing this new feature for some time and are excited to bring it to market. The revolutionary transparent pin curing system will simplify production, improve efficiency and is completely retrofittable to our fleet of Helix® Digital Cylinder printers. It makes a significant difference for transparent items,” Ben Adner, CEO of Inkcups.
