The new process of digital printing on glass.
The new generation of digital printing
From the rich heritage of knowledge and skills that System Ceramics has developed in the field of digital ceramic decoration, System Digital is born, the business unit exclusively dedicated to digital printing applications on glass and extra-ceramic materials.
It's Creaglass the innovative technology set up by System Digital, a high-performance single-pass drop-on-demand inkjet digital printing that offers important applicative solutions in the field of glass for architecture and constructions, automotive, household appliances and means of transport.
A modular and flexible technology
The innovative Creaglass system is composed of 2,5 m modules, corresponding to different phases of the printing process. Each module can be configured and implemented at any time according to production and space requirements.
Besides its modularity, this new technology is also characterized by extreme flexibility. In fact, it allows you to print, simultaneously in double or quadruple rows, any type of graphic file on glass of different shapes, sizes and inclinations.
The Creaglass printing process
Creavision is the integrated vision system that controls the position of the glass sheet on the roller to ensure the correct positioning of the graphic image on the substrate to be printed.
Creavison’s sophisticated cameras reveal the exact position of the glass, according to the x; y; α (angle) parameters, and analyze and transmit the data to the digital printer which, in real time, performs a “rototranslation” of the design on the glass sheet before printing.
The perfect centering of the graphics combined with greater drop accuracy thanks to the new 777 dpi heads, allows for perfect coverage of the edges with improved saving of ink and less wasted product.
Creaglass offers great potential:
- possibility of using any type of temperable ceramic ink that complies with the latest safety regulations for health and the environment;
- automatic and immediate format changes;
- high productivity and maximum single-pass printing speed (1 glass sheet per second);
- high definition (777 dpi) and greater repeatability
- possibility of producing small batches;
- elimination of printing screens;
- edge-to-edge printing;
- double or quadruple row printing;
- integrated vision system.
