Tonejet, the only manufacturer of advanced electro-static drop-on-demand digital print engines, has unveiled Cyclone, the first industrial production direct-to-can digital printing machine, at InPrint 2017. The Tonejet Cyclone, with integrated Rockwell Automation iTRAK transport system, was on show throughout InPrint 2017 on Tonejet’s stand , illustrating the numerous benefits of direct to shape digital beverage can printing.

Tonejet Printhead Animation
The Tonejet Electrostatic Jetting process uses the principle of electrostatically ejecting charged pigment ink particles from a linear array of ejector tips. Ink flows continuously around the ejectors, this continuous flow of ink allows the print head to be constantly in a print-ready state. The ink consists of charged pigment particles in a non-conducting carrier liquid. To jet ink from the ejectors, a voltage is applied individually to the ejectors in correlation with the print data, resulting in the charged pigment particles being accelerated away from the ejectors towards the substrate.
