Inkjet print systems
Core of our printing technology
The core technology of inkjet printing is combined in our Print Modules. Thus, a Print Module as a component is an independent small-format industrial printer.
Specially developed controller unit
Powerful electronics for fast data processing and interpretation of sensor data.
A solid frame
Precise positioning, supply and care
Print Rigs provide the mounting for the Print Modules and supply them with power, data and printing fluid.
For printing on a desired substrate, the rigs are positioned next to a substrate conveyor. This creates a fully integrated printer, specifically suited for printing on the conveyed substrate.

Automatic Cleaning Station
Axes to automatically position the Print Modules in the print area and in the maintenance area
Automatic cleaning station for cleaning, maintenance and protection of the Print Modules

Gateway Module to control the Print Modules and the Print Rig
Combining Print Modules and Print Rigs to print systems
Print Rigs are available for different print widths. Depending on the desired print width, they can hold a fixed number of Print Modules and synchronise them to create a complete colour row.
Based on the desired number of colours or printing fluids, several rigs are combined to form a complete print system.
Risk minimisation through scalability
Modularity makes it possible to develop a project or a printing process step by step. For example, print systems that consist of only one Print Module or one colour can be expanded later.
This allows the feasibility of a concept to be tested without a large initial investment or using a prototype technology that grows obsolete during the course of a project.
Inkjet printing on various substrates
A modular system to serve a wide range of applications
Inline integrations, specialised printing systems, single-pass or multi-pass print processes
Print Rigs, Camera Rigs and Peripheral Rigs can be combined to form a production line. The different rigs communicate with each other and are synchronised.
With this modular system, complete solutions can be configured for any printing application.
In combination with different inks or printing fluids, the requirements of a wide range of applications can be met, while the standardised modules ensure reliability.
Combine different resolutions
Combine different ink types and printing fluids
Integrate analysis possibilities
Quick & easy integration
Only a few steps to fully integrate the modular technology
optionally provided by n-art-m
Unique service concept due to the modular design
Replacing Print Modules is quick and easy with just a few screw and plug connections.
With replacement modules in stock, production can continue without downtime, while any necessary service work is carried out by our specialised staff.
To ensure high reliability and print quality at all times, there is a fixed service schedule for our Print Modules: Modules are simply sent in for inspection, cleaning and maintenance.
No waiting for the service technician
Remote support is possible at any time via an LTE connection. This concept requires no inkjet expertise from the operator and ensures the highest possible machine availability.
Only remote support is required for the commissioning.
Optimise processes through optical analysis
In addition to Print Rigs, we offer specialised Camera Rigs. These are used to inspect the substrate and to analyse and correct the print result. The recordings of the camera are used to adjust the print data and optimise the result without extensive changes to the hardware.
Camera Rigs enable more complex printing processes and an optimisation of the print quality - even with already installed printing systems.
Easy access to the controls
Control the print system from a wide range of devices
For controlling and monitoring, the web-based Centurion User Interface is part of the scope of delivery of each print system.
The UI is easily accessed via a PC in the same network as the print system. It only requires an installed browser to access the user interface.
Alternatively, it is possible to operate the Print Rigs and Print Modules via a REST API.
