Onset X2 Features

25 Zone ‘No Masking’ Vacuum Bed – Featuring a powerful new vacuum system and choice of table skin design, the need for bed masking is eliminated, whatever the substrate size, and greatly reduces set-up times for the most common POP substrates and increases throughput of short-run, fast-turnaround print. Vacuum zones are independently controlled and the auto zone function allows it to be easily managed by the operator.

Simple User Interface – Touch screen GUI makes it easy to finalize and initiate jobs, save settings, create print queues and manage and optimize every stage of the print process. Improved off-machine job set-up means jobs arrive at the printer with more predefined parameters – substrates, print speed, quality mode, gloss level, etc – already specified.

iNozzle Technology – An onboard scanner locates any under-performing nozzles and automatically assigns a reserve printhead to jet ink to make a perfect image.

Inca Software Suite – Provides operators with a complete suite of productivity-enhancing software including Reporter Pro, Inca Vision and Print Run Control (PRC).

Choice of Automation Systems – Increase the throughput of the Onset X2 by reducing manual change out of materials with the optional 3/4 Automation system or fully-automated feed system.

What Clients Say about Onset X2

“We reviewed the market extensively before choosing a high-end digital flatbed machine that would allow us to print directly and efficiently onto different substrates. The consistent quality and outstanding throughput demonstrated by the double CMYK configured Onset impressed us, and we soon knew that it was the best fit for our production environment.”
