DCS Direct Jet 1800z

  • DCS Direct Jet 1800z

      • Direct Color Systems® has mastered the science of LED printing then improved on it even further and Sign to Badge Solutions presents this class-leading small-format range of UV LED flatbed printers to the Australian market. The DCS 1800z model is a versatile small-format solution with wider print area than its predecessors, enhanced throughput and innovative capabilities to take your business to a new level of market reach. Expanding your product offerings with remarkable applications and versatility.


        The 1800z model offers the capability to print compliant braille signage, direct-to-garment (DTG) T-shirts, a range of different substrate cylindrical objects and raised-texture in a single pass.

        Open new markets with Compliant Braille Signage!

        The DCS patented printing process incorporated into the 1800z enables you to create ADA-compliant braille signage quickly and economically and within the budget reach of more customers. Combine the 1800z with the ColorByte software, ADA module and InkMark™ UV Metal matte-finish substrates or standard cast acrylic, and realise the option of first or second surface graphics to create raised-texture signage. Produce standard 6x8 signs complete with a digitally printed background, braille dots and raised lettering in less than 4 minutes.

        Cylindrical Printing expands your range of promotional products!

        Not just a sign and print shop but become a one-stop shop for promo products. The EasyCyl attachment transforms your 1800z into a precision printer to create full-colour images as well as TEXTUR3D™ prints on a range of cylindrical objects in all colour substrates - beer and wine bottles, soft drink and other bottles, cups, cans, glasses, candles, tubes and many more.

        Print Direct-to-Garment without harsh chemical pre-treatments!

        Utilising the Multisolve IRF4 or IRF6 flexible inks, the versatile 1800z creates resistant and durable prints directly onto both light and dark coloured T-shirts. An innovation which signals the first DTG printer with the versatility to print onto cotton and cotton blends as well as 100% polyester fabrics and synthetics without requiring chemical pre-treatments. A versatility which can radically expand your product range and improve the ever-important bottom line.

        TEXTUR3D™ brings a new feel to your business.

        DCS has added an innovative new feature to the Color Byte RIP software - TEXTUR3D™ - allowing you to achieve the most amazing raised-texture results in a single pass. Add excitement, dimension and interest with stunning effects while adding depth to your product offering. Logos, slogans, campaign messages and plenty of other creative ideas that your customers come in with, can now be reproduced in raised-texture on acrylic, word, glass, plastic, metal and whole heap more materials.

        Forget multiple passes, with the three groups of print head channels in the Color Byte RIP software, you can simultaneously, inline in a single pass, print a combination of two or three of these channels.

        With wider print width, enhanced throughput and a versatile scope of applications, the DCS 1800z from Sign to Badge Solutions is a business opportunity not to be missed.
