C250 for Papiertechnische Stiftung

To support the packaging market, Papiertechnische Stiftung (PTS) in Heidenau has invested in a high-quality full color inkjet printing system. This system will be used for performing material testing and analysis for the packaging market, such as corrugated board and cardboard. To meet the demands of the food industry, a water-based system was the first choice.

After looking at the different solutions, the HP C250 from DJM proved to be the optimal choice. The C250 print module is a full color HP-based inkjet printing system, using the HP´s latest TIJ4.0 printhead technology. It has a printing width of 4.25 inches (108 mm) and at a speed of up to 75 m/min at a resolution of 600 x 600 dpi.

For the application of PTS, DJM designed a complete solution where the C250 print module is installed on top of a linear transport system. With this configuration, PTS can quickly and easily produce test prints on a range of different substrates, enabling the assessment of material behaviour, optimisation of materials, within research and customer projects, and development of new surface solutions.

The system is fully controlled by DJM’s Kameleon controller software, allowing PTS to run with different file types. The C250 has short setup times due to the integrated printhead service station, allowing for automated cleaning. Especially the fast execution of test procedures at practice-relevant speeds was required by PTS could be provided by DJM.
