Launched in 2015, this revolutionary inkjet printing unit, already installed on several machines, obtained widespread approval so far, especially among the converters dealing with the retail or directly with privates. Now it is ready to take a step forward.
Chameleon is a “direct-print” system which erases changeover time and costs and gives free access to creativity and innovation, since it enables the impression of images with variable data with no limits. For any napkins converter it is a real life-change in terms of just-in-time deliveries and customization, which confers a unique value to the final product.
This goes beyond the simple printed napkin. It leads to a product that can satisfy different requests and transform, for example, into an advertising vehicle or a souvenir. Its high-technology mechanism works in a very intuitive way: a PC installed on the side of the group receives the documents with the graphics and it processes them according to the parameters chosen by the operator. All you need is selecting the PDF file with the images to be printed and the job is ready to go. Chameleon can be installed in-line on OMET TV503 and can print with a maximum speed of 200 mt/min (656 ft/min).
With Chameleon, OMET showed once again to be able to anticipate the trend of the market
“This system is particularly interesting to converters who supply napkins to restaurants, companies, or even printers selling to privates through the Web – explains Marco Calcagni, OMET commercial director -. It allows the production of packs with different napkins or special napkins with serial codes, QR codes, Wi-Fi access credentials, daily menus or a family picture. With this module, it is possible to create something new every time you need it in order to lead the market and differentiate your production from the competition”.
