Compress iUV 1200’s – UV Printer

The Compress UV 1200s delivers exceptional photo realistic colour through its 8 independent colour channels.

The Compress UV 1200s goes one step further, with ONE PASS white ink flood and overprinting – UV technology prints colourful, bright images on transparent and coloured substrates with white ink as a flood coating or overprint without slowing print speed. The onboard IQ Interweave, eliminates banding.
