Industrial Digital Printing Lines – The Hymmen Success Principle
Cost-efficient and just-in-time: industrial digital printing lines from Hymmen let you print your own individual web and panel material surfaces – in brilliant quality and on an industrial scale.
The JUPITER and the SATURN Digital Printing Lines enable demand-oriented printing of roll materials in the required length and with your chosen digital print template.
The broad spectrum of Hymmen printing lines supports the combination of different finishing technologies, such as the option to press or laminate materials post-digital printing.

High plant availability due to self-recovery
The special side shooter print head architecture minimises downtimes of the individual nozzles. Any blockages are automatically removed by the circulating ink flow and collected in a filter system. The self-recovery function is indispensable for reliable production at industrial level.
Colour Management - easy to handle
Thanks to integrated Colour Management, print data can be matched to the colour master with just a few clicks and reproduced at any time with pin-point precision. Substrate-oriented profiles are automatically compared to existing colour profiles, in order to ensure the same colour results regardless of substrate.
Single pass printing
The JUPITER and the SATURN are industrial single pass digital printing lines. A printing station covers the full working width of the substrate and prints the board or web material passing underneath the print heads at a speed of up to 50 m/min. The digitally processed print data can be used for printing almost immediately and even changed quickly during production. The print image comprises tiny ink drops of the colours cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK). Several print heads per colour are operated in series to achieve the required working width.
The flexible Drop-on-Demand inkjet method (DOD) of the Hymmen Digital Printing Lines means that there are no limits to the number of print motifs available. The ultra-fast digital design change virtually eliminates make-ready times and enables infinitely versatile and cost-effective production, while simultaneously ensuring reliable colour consistency and outstanding line availability. The ink drops are fired from the individual print heads by means of the Drop-on-Demand inkjet method, already widespread in the office sector. Activation of a piezoelectric material in the walls of the ink chambers within the print head creates a pressure pulse, which causes the controlled ejection of a drop from the nozzle for precise placement on the surface of the substrate.
