Wave – JETRIX KX3 and KX5 Flatbed


The Challenge

A core part of Wave’s business is printing glass panels and so they were looking for a more efficient way to digitally print these.

The Next Steps

Initial demonstrations at InkTec’s  Innovations Centre showcased the capability and versatility of the JETRIX printer range, what they could do and how they work. With printing on glass panels obviously a high priority, this took the majority of the presentation.

The first JETRIX KX3 printer, delivered in January 2013 rapidly  became in demand.  Orders from Wave’s clients increased, as they were increasingly impressed by the quality and print sharpness produced by this initial printer.

The Outcome

In April 2013, Wave took delivery of a second KX3 to cope with the increased demand. This was soon followed by a larger KX5 machine to meet the demand for printing larger sized substrates of up to 2.5 x 1.3m.

As all three printers utilise exactly the same print head technology, Wave were able to ensure the same result, regardless of which machine used. Wave have now taken delivery of their fourth JETRIX – a KX5 in March 2014.

"We came to InkTec with a challenge to finding a more efficient way to digitally print our glass panels. From initial engagement and through our continued relationship with them the support and knowledge has been excellent.”
