Onset X3 Description
See how the Onset X3 has transformed Direct Edge Media’s POP Display and Instore Retail Marketing business.
The Onset X3 uses Fujifilm Dimatix drop-on-demand printheads, which are perfect for the production of high volume, quality images onto a wide variety of media. The printheads jet a 14 picoliter drop size providing a good balance of quality and volume for the display POP and signage market.
To ensure maximum throughput, the Inca Onset X3 is compatible with Inca’s flexible automation systems which offer customers the choice to operate in manual, three quarter or full automation. The optional handling systems for Onset increase the throughput of the press by reducing handling time from 20-45 seconds manually, down to just 6 seconds with automation.

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.

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 X3 by reducing manual change out of materials with the optional 3/4 Automation system or fully-automated feed system.
