The requirement
Do you want an industrial printing system that can be quickly, easily and completely inte­gra­ted into your pro­duc­tion proces­ses? Do you want pro­fes­sional print­ing results, re­gard­less of the materials used and the print­ing speed?

The elegant solution
EvoPrint® enables seamless integration of an industrial printing system into an existing machine without changing the production process. With a maximum print speed of up to 180 m/min or 3 m/s at 300 dpi re­so­lution, EvoPrint® is thus sig­nif­i­cant­ly faster than con­vent­ional print­ing systems. Even during acceleration, precise printing is still pos­sible. The active speed com­pen­sa­tion pre­vents dis­tor­tion or tearing of text and print images. At the same time, the direction recognition prevents data from being printed twice. You save process time and material costs! EvoPrint® provides software tools that can be fully integrated into the interface without the need for another PC-based interface in the machine. For print data transfer, EvoPrint® is simply connected to the existing user interface via LAN/Ethernet. EvoPrint® is then controlled via fieldbus interfaces such as EtherCAT or CAN, standard Ethernet and in­cre­mental encoders.

EvoPrint® has been tested and proven in practice. Close cooperation with our cus­tomers, combined with our know-how as a sys­tem inte­gra­tor, enables us to offer tailor-made sys­tem so­lu­tions for a wide range of app­li­ca­tions in the various industrial sectors within a very short time.
