Polytype – We are setting standards in large-format UV digital printing

More than ten years of experience in the area of UV digital printing, Swiss thoroughness and perfection, as well as the ambition to improve our printing machines continuously – all of that distinguishes Polytype SA. Integrated into the globally operating Polytype Group, an enterprise steeped in tradition, our dynamic and innovative company based in Fribourg/Switzerland focuses on development, sales, and service of large-format digital UV printers. With our branch in New Jersey/USA, we are securing, on the one hand, international expertise in order to adapt our products continuously to new requirements and trends. On the other hand, by operating close to our clients, we are guaranteeing exceptional service worldwide.

Magnificent technology for highest demands

When we at Polytype speak of superb print quality, the focus is on the highest resolution, strikingly brilliant colors, and high-precision positioning of every single drop. VIRTU allows you both to print minute detail and font sizes in resolutions of up to 1,200 dpi with pin-sharp quality and to increase productivity as desired by selecting parameters accordingly.
This quality and versatility becomes possible because in terms of our printers we really thought of every imaginable detail:
• Exceptionally robust, stable frame that cannot be “shaken” by anything
• Absolutely flat printing table, allowing the printheads to work very precisely
• Maintenance-free, dynamic linear motors for highest possible printing speed
• The latest generation of printheads featuring piezo drop-on-demand inkjet technology for ultra-fine ink drops
• Specially developed UV inks that are adjusted perfectly not only to the printheads but also to the respective substrates and fields of application.

Thanks to an optimized printing process, you can reach extremely high printing speeds in this way while at the same time achieving excellent quality, thus enabling you to generate both single copies and large-scale production runs in no time.
Beyond that, we have reduced operating costs and environmental impact to a minimum. Ink consumption of our printers is amazingly low. On the one hand, by means of the printhead configuration and a sophisticated meniscus system it is possible to work with very few cleaning cycles, which may also be limited specifically to the printheads of one color if required. On the other hand, cleaning the printheads is carried out only when in fact necessary. Since the ink is hardened by UV radiation, it also contains no solvents at all, which benefits not only the environment but also pleases above all the people working with our printers.
