Benefits of digital inkjet
- High quality, print finish: a high quality, fine finish can be created with digital printing to produce tiles that are virtually indistinguishable from natural materials.
- Faster set-up & reduce tile breakage: by eliminating roller sleeves there is no physical changeover time between images; and with set-up handled by print control software, production downtime and waste are reduced, making it simpler to print short runs, including single tiles. The non-contact nature of digital inkjet printing makes breakages very rare, reducing waste and material costs.
- Print on textured tiles: digital inkjet printheads can work on textured surfaces. Combining digital inkjet printing of colour with texture produces more realistic representations of natural materials, enhancing the value of the tiles. The printheads also decorate right to the edge of a tile, eliminating white edges and creating a seamless, natural look.
