Straightforward Printing Process
Addressing large format digital printing, aleph offers a cutting-edge integrated industrial solution. Central to the process is the printing system, designed to offer roll to roll (R2R) and roll to sheet (R2S) printing, which also features an inline cutting system. The printing and drying processes are processed inline, through a proprietary IR dryer and do not require any additional process.
