Inkcups to showcase industrial printing solutions at FESPA

Inkcups to showcase broad range of industrial and promotional printing solutions at FESPA 2024.

Global printing industry leader Inkcups is set to present its range of specialist digital printing and software solutions at FESPA Global Print Expo in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from the 19th to 22nd March 2024.

Inkcups will be exhibiting in Hall 2 (Stand C25), as well as participating in the Personalise Make Wear smart factory in the Personalisation Experience exhibition (Hall 11).

Inkcups’ return to FESPA 2024 follows a year of growth in Europe and the global launch of two new products, including the compact Helix ONE benchtop cylindrical printer. Inkcups has now made significant changes to many areas of the software and operation of the Helix ONE, including human machine interface (HMI) updates which will be debuted at FESPA 2024. The entry-level cylindrical printing solution is expected to be of particular interest to businesses looking to take their first steps into customised drinkware.

In addition to the updated Helix ONE, Inkcups will showcase its full industrial digital printing portfolio, including:

  • The XJET Switch UV flatbed printer, capable of producing high-quality full CMYKWW (highly opaque white) images directly onto a variety of reusable bags and hard goods
  • The flagship Helix cylindrical inkjet printer, designed to print superior quality full-colour (CMYKWW + varnish) images on straight-walled and tapered cylinders
  • The Double Helix cylindrical inkjet printer, featuring two print fixtures for double the production volume of cylindrical objects
  • The X5-T flatbed UV digital printer, a high-performance flatbed designed for heavy-duty industrial printing and promotional products 
  • ArtPrep, Inkcups’ artwork preparation software designed for companies handling a large quantity of artworks for their daily production

The machines on the Inkcups stand will be demonstrating their capabilities in producing high quality, full-colour graphics on items ranging from polyester drawstring bags, cotton tote bags, clear concert bags, acrylic tumblers, stainless steel water bottles, Tritan bottles, and pens.

Inkcups will also be participating in Personalisation Experience for the first time in 2024. The Personalise Make Wear factory will feature Inkcups’ flagship Helix cylindrical inkjet printer paired with artwork preparation software, ArtPrep. The Helix digital cylinder printer is designed to print superior quality full-colour (CMYKWW) and varnish onto straight walled and tapered cylindrical objects such as plastic bottles, barware, stainless steel tumblers, candles and powder-coated drinkware.

Bobby Grauf, Managing Director, Inkcups Europe, comments: “Last year was a big one for Inkcups, with two major launches – the XJET Switch and the Helix ONE – and updates to our flagship Helix cylindrical printers. We always make worthwhile connections and have some great conversations with the European industry at FESPA, and we’re looking forward to catching up with our growing European customer base in Amsterdam to discuss how Inkcups can support their success in 2024. We are also really excited to be demonstrating what our cylindrical printing solutions are capable of as part of the first iteration of the Personalise Make Wear smart factory at FESPA 2024.”
