It can also be customized to run dual-CMYK, CMYK plus four whites, etc. Rigid and flexible inks are available and are supplied in 200-mL vacuum-sealed bags that allow the unit to print with an uninterrupted ink flow. The UVx90 features a sensor that adjusts the printhead height automatically, a vacuum bed for holding lightweight sheets in place, and Kothari RIP software that enables inline printing of color, white, and clear inks in up to six layers. Standard and custom product-holding jigs are available, as well as a rotary attachment for printing bottles.
