Mouvent unveils Cluster technology for digital printing

Aug '17
Mouvent, a joint venture between Bobst and Radex focused on digital print using pioneering digital technology, has unveiled the ground-breaking expertise behind its range of innovative digital printers. The Mouvent Cluster is a radical approach, which uses clusters instead of fixed size print bars by colour, arranging them in a modular, scalable matrix.

The cluster technology was developed by Radex, a start-up company owned by multiple stakeholders with a long track record in the field of DOD inkjet digital printing. Radex and Bobst created Mouvent as a joint venture in June 2017. The cluster technology is the centrepiece of revolutionary new machines developed by Mouvent for a wide variety of markets such as textile, labels, corrugated board, flexible packaging, folding carton, and more.

Mouvent has already revealed some of their machines including the 8-colour digital textile printing machine TX801. It is associated with the highest print resolution of up to 2000 dpi and the highest productivity in the market with an output of up to 200 square metres/hour, at the lowest cost per square metre produced.

Mouvent has also announced its first range of label printing solutions, which include two all-new, high speed 7-colour UV ink printers (LB701-UV and LB702-UV) and a water-based ink digital inkjet label printer in the narrow web segment. With single-pass machines like these, the substrate is running through at up to 100 metres/min below the fixed clusters, at one colour per cluster.

Each Mouvent Cluster prints up to 170 millimetres wide. Additional clusters can be added in theory without any limit. Therefore, whatever the substrate width, the technology can be adapted accordingly. With 10,000 operating hours, the life cycle of the cluster is extremely long. They are also very light in weight, at around 1.8kg, and can be easily replaced.

Beyond their digital printing presses, Mouvent offers a fully integrated, complete solution – it develops, engineers, tests, and industrialises digital printers based on the Mouvent Cluster, it writes the software around the printers, develops inks, and coatings for various substrates, as well as providing a full servicing offering. The company is promising a new standard in inkjet label production cost and quality, in ink pricing, head durability, quality, and machine performance. (GK)
