Industrial Digital Printing

Unmatched Quality, Incredible Resolution, Mass Customization for Industrial Applications

Tapecon is recognized as an industry-leading industrial digital printing company. The technologies that we use allow us to offer our customers high quality, short to medium run products including labels, decals, and membrane switch overlays with quick turnaround times. Cost savings are achieved by eliminating films, plates, screens, and traditional material waste. There are significantly less raw materials used in the process thanks to vastly reduced make-ready time.

Our industrial digital printing technologies allow us to produce goods with custom numbering, barcodes, security features, and fully variable images and variable data.

Key Advantages of Industrial Digital Printing:

  • Print from one to many colors
  • Capable of printing complex artwork design
  • Wide variety of materials available
  • Short lead times
  • Cost effective
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Roll and sheet options

Tapecon has several industrial digital printing technologies:

  • Dry toner electrophotography technology ensures digital printing quality that is simply unmatched. The toner has excellent outdoor UV fade resistance and abrasion resistance. This technology allows for maximum speed printing with variable repeat lengths and labels of different sizes and formats in the same run. Regardless of the number of colors required to complete the job, print speed will not be affected. This digital printing process boasts a number of environmentally friendly benefits which eliminates water pollution, saves energy, and makes paper recycling easy.
  • Thermal transfer is a digital printing technology commonly used to print unique, one-off images and alpha-numeric characters with a high resolution and excellent image durability. Durable thermal transfer color printing with digital cutting eliminates the need for films, plates, screens, and costly dies. This technology is a great fit for prototypes and short runs of labels, decals, banners, signage, overlays, table and floor graphics, and much more.
  • Inkjet Printing: Inkjet printing offers a great option for thick rigid substrate printing. This technology is a great fit for prototypes and short and medium runs of labels, decals, banners, signage, overlays, table and floor graphics, and much more.
