The Toucan print module is our latest full-color inkjet print module and based on HP's PageWide technology.
Support a wide variety of applications
The Toucan print module – based on HP’s PageWide inkjet technology – is our latest full-color print module and is the perfect solution for short run production. The combination of the print width and the pigmented ink makes the Toucan suitable for a wide variety of applications. With its compact dimensions, the Toucan print module can be easily integrated into existing production lines or used as standalone.
High specification printhead
The Toucan’s printhead has a native resolution of 1.200 dpi. Combined with the small drop sizes, this results in sharp edges for images and text. Unique features of the Toucan printhead are the print width of 11.7 inches (297 mm) and the compact build. All four colors – CMYK – are printed with one printhead, which guarantees optimal registering of the colors. This makes the Toucan system ideal for printing applications requiring large images, such as envelopes, labels, bags, displays, packaging, boxes and much more.
Durable vibrant colors
The Toucan print module has an internal ink system based on cartridges to provide an optimal combination of print quality and performance. Toucan uses the pigmented ink and offers durability on a wide variety of porous media types and has been tested for lightfastness, water resistance and scratch resistance.
Easy to use
The Toucan print module has an internal service station. The service station contains a printhead wiper and takes care of the capping, cleaning and wiping of the printhead. This automated routine is operated from the Toucan software, ensuring maximum ease of use and short set-up times.
The unique ‘Bar-in-Box’ principle of the Toucan system ensures long-term use. The expected life of the printhead, in combination with the automated printhead servicing, is up to 36 liters. The printhead is part of the ‘Bar-in-Box’, which means that when the printhead needs to be replaced, the entire ‘Bar-in-Box’ unit is replaced and includes the ink system.
Toucan's wide print bar allows the user to print large images – up to 297 x 914 mm – in a single pass a wide variety of (porous) substrates.
The pigmented ink offers durability on a wide variety of porous media types and has been tested for lightfastness, water resistance and scratch resistance.

New software to maximize Toucan’s potential
To make optimal use of the Toucan, DJM has developed a new controller software for Toucan.
The Toucan software controls the print module and is developed from operator’s perspective, easy to use and intuitive. The operator has easy access to print job parameters such as file selection, TOF-delay and ink lay down.
By simply entering the job specifications and job file (PDF), the software rips the file and sends it to the print module for printing.
The Toucan software also monitors system status and alerts the operator in the event of an intervention such as replacing ink cartridges or a printhead wiper.
Just select the file, the number of prints and print. Also the TOF-delay can be set to job specifications.
The ink lay down can also be altered by easy sliders in the user display.
The Toucan has an internal servicing routine. The printhead wiper can be easy operated from the software.
Switching off the Toucan system is controlled from the software.
