Ceramic Printers

The digital printing machines for ceramics are the most advanced and versatile on the market, offering a more efficient and competent production process.

Technology that achives the success

The new KERAjet S7 use the most advanced digital printing technology for printing with ceramic pigments,soluble salts, effects, solid aplications, glazes and UVI inks.

Its compact and robust design makes it the ideal machine to be integrated in a production line, due to advanced electronic and its innovative and intuitive software make it the most versatile and complete machine in terms of performance in the market.

Using different technologies and types of printheads synchronously, achieves unlimited decoration with glazes, colors and dry powders, getting a great differentation and competitive product that the market demands nowadays.

Intended for laboratories and production lines

KERAjet P7 is an inkjet printer designed for printing ceramic applications, valid for the development of small series or special products as to be implemented in line with a high productivity.

KERAjet P7 can be con gurated with movil bench or automatic belt, multihead technology and an active ink system controlled by our electronic devices bestowing a printing stability and high reliability.

The possibility of using up to 12 inks configured in 24 printing units with resolutions that reaches up to 1200 dpi at 8 levels of gray scale freely configurables, allows us the highest printing quality and a perfect representation of shades and gradations making the equipment an essential tool for the development of new products.

Our specific software patented by KERAjet, has been developed as an intuitive and easy manner to use graphical enviroment. This allows a big performace in a short time.

Basic features

MINI K is a software program made by KERAjet which is inteded as user’s graphical interface. The system is provided with this software already installed in its computer.

The ink system is controlled by our electronic devices. however, the user’s interface is embebed in the MINI K software in the inks option. In this way, the MINI K software enables controlling and monitoring of the transport movements , ink system, and management of the designs.

The interface is easy and user friendly. MINI K software transfers the images to the print units for printing.
