Global printing industry company Inkcups is pleased to announce that the company’s photorealistic digital printer, Helix® Hi-Fi, was named 2019 Product of the Year in the Direct-to-Shape Printers category by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA). Inkcups is a supplier and manufacturer of digital inkjet equipment, pad printing equipment, laser plate-makers and corresponding supplies, with direct sales, technical support and warehouse locations in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Hong Kong and other global locations.
The Helix Hi-Fi is the industry’s first true photorealistic digital cylinder printing machine. An evolution of Inkcups’ flagship Helix rotary digital printer, the Hi-Fi produces high-resolution images with photorealistic skin-tone matching thanks to the addition of two-color pockets: light cyan and light magenta. The machine utilizes advanced smoothing technology which removes any potential graininess from an original image for better print quality output, a key feature for reproducing facial images. Ideal for promotional and retail markets, the Helix® Hi-Fi prints multi-color graphics on straight-walled cylinders, tapers, and objects with limited wall curvatures. Typical applications include stainless steel vessels, glass candle holders, mixing glasses, barware and more.
Inkcups will receive their Product of the Year recognition on October 22, 2019, at PRINTING United. Inkcups will display a range of digital, pad printing and laser plate-making machines as well as a few new machines at booth #2011.
