Cambridge technology shows plenty of bottle
Digital screen print technology is used for printing special themed beer bottle tops for a Cambridge UK brewing business.
Copytrax’ latest digital flatbed printer has been used to provide printed beer bottle tops based on a “rock, paper and scissors” theme for the Lord Conrad’s brewery based near Cambridge.
The fun bottle tops are in special preparation for a Christmas fair at Jimmy's farm, in Suffolk.
“As simple as it may seem, digital print on metal is very much an emerging technology,” said Steve Woods, business development director at Cambridge-based Copytrax.
“It is a technology that is displacing traditional screen-printing techniques and has been depended on recent innovations in ink technology and print-head design. This more modern approach offers a lot more flexibility, a quicker turn around and high quality, durable finish.”
Copytrax is a leader in the development and manufacture of innovative digital print systems. The company provides digital print solutions to a wide range of industries, providing modern alternatives to traditional screen-printing techniques.
Copytrax has become known for its innovative desktop digital CD/DVD printers, eco-solvent flatbed printers, and more recently, UV cure print technology.
“In many ways, the bottle tops make a great demonstration of our technology,” said Woods. “We can scan in a number of images and print them simultaneously, at the press of a button. The bottle tops also demonstrate the print quality they we can now achieve.”
Copytrax has recently announced the launch of its latest Cezzane UV cured A2 flatbed printer. Targeting the industrial sector, Copytrax is expecting it to be used to print control panels, instrument dials and similar fascia panels.
