MacDermid Targets Small to Medium Signshops

The company unveils the 5400uv series.



UV-Curable Inkjet Printers

MacDermid ColorSpan Inc. (Eden Prairie, MN) is unveiling the ColorSpan 5400uv series printers. Targeted at small to medium-sized sign and print shops, these printers combine the ultra-high print quality typical of an aqueous, thermal-inkjet printer, with the outdoor durability of a solvent printer, and the media versatility and cost savings of a UVcurable inkjet printer.

The ColorSpan 5400uv series uses the latest-generation, variable- drop-volume, piezo-electric printheads. Each industrial-quality, extended-life printhead can eject variable-sized micro droplets to achieve addressable resolutions of 600 x 300, 600 x 600 and 1,200 x 600 dpi. The 5460uv and 5465uv six-color models achieve even higher apparent image quality – up to 1,800 dpi. All four models, the 5440iv, 5445uv, 5460uv and the 5465uv, feature a 54-in. (137cm) print width and a set of integrated tables that fold up and can extend outward to accommodate rigid media in excess of 8 ft. (244 cm) in length.
