Inkcups Introduces the Helix 2.0

Inkcups, Danvers, Massachusetts, has announced a rebrand of the company’s Helix machine to a new and improved version: the Helix® 2.0.

Still printing full-color (CMYKWW and varnish) images on straight-walled and tapered cylinders, the latest Helix® now is equipped with ColorBoost, a proprietary system that enables printing of 12 pass quality at six pass speeds or eight pass quality at four pass speeds, producing the highest quality images on the market.

With a dedicated head per color, ColorBoost allocates two channels per head rather than one channel per head in competitive machines for higher-quality images at faster speeds. To meet specific adhesion requirements, the Helix 2.0 has increased in-line pretreatment options with the ability to add corona, plasma or jettable primer.
