Additional Info for Unique Technologies


The LUCIA TD pigment inks, including the fluorescent pink ink, offer a wide colour gamut and high colour performance, producing vibrant and eye-catching hues from pastels to neon variations.

FINE Print Head

Equipped with micron-sized nozzles, the fully integrated print head provides superb uniformity of ink density and colours, while multi-pass printing ensures highest print quality is maintained on every print.

L-COA PRO Image Processing Engine

L-COA PRO imaging processor is capable of processing massive image data, drives high printing speed while maintaining supreme print quality, enabling fast first print out time and continuous printing speed.

Non-Firing Detection and Compensation System

Equipped with in-built sensor, the non-firing detection and compensation system checks the ink ejection from print head nozzles and when a blockage is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup. This prevents banding and reduces the frequency of print head cleaning required.

Radiant Infusion

The new Radiant Infusion technology allows the fluorescent ink to be precisely layered on the paper surface along with other inks such as yellow and magenta, which helps to make the print bright and vivid by taking advantage of the light emission from the fluorescent ink. In this way, colours that are difficult to reproduce with a conventional aqueous inkjet printer are rendered vividly and brightly. Easy creation of high-impact graphics can be achieved.
