DCS Introduces a New Wide Format Printer That Can Produce Braille Signs

Direct Color Systems is pleased to announce the release of the UV-84DTS – a new 4’ x 8’ (120cm x 243cm) UV LED printer. “This release positions the company to offer innovative UV printers to a wider audience,” says Tom Kaplinski, President & CEO. “We incorporated the needs and requests of our customers in the development of this release and are proud to add this wide format printer to our complete lineup.”

The new UV-84DTS includes a wide range of advanced features geared towards precision printing and production. Items include industrial Ricoh print heads, a trouble-free ink delivery system, variable drop grayscale technology, and resolutions up to 1200dpi. Combine those items with an all-new Color Byte 11 software solution, integrated vacuum table, and a 1.5L bulk ink system, and operators can reliably print job after job.

“This marks the next step in our history of providing innovative solutions to the printing industry,” says Steve Mills, Global Director, Sales & Marketing. “Maintaining our patented technology to produce ADA/Braille signs with many of the popular UV printing applications, and the UV-84DTS immediately becomes a premier solution.”
