Advanced research inkjet printer

The PiXDRO LP50 is the most advanced R&D inkjet printing platform for functional printing applications.

It is designed for research and development of inkjet processes and applications as well as evaluation and development of inkjet materials. The LP50 platform is an open, accurate, flexible and easy to use printing system that will allow you to work at the frontiers of state-of-the-art inkjet printing technology. The LP50 has a modular design and can be configured for a wide range of applications such as printed electronics, photovoltaics, OLEDs, bio-medical, etc.

Main advantages

  • Compatible with solvent based (incl. nanoparticle), aqueous , hotmelt and UV-curable inks
  • Open architecture allows integration of new modules and control through user designed scripts
  • High accuracy enables functional samples/products
  • Excelent control over drop formation, drop placement and print strategy
  • Easy, fast and accurate change over between print heads and inks
  • Automatic print head maintenance functions (capping, purging, spitting, wiping)
  • Integrated vision systems for droplet inspection, accurate alignment, post-print inspection
  • Settings transferable to PiXDRO production equipment
  • Advanced user training available to support your further application development
