Fast, Wide-Path, Single Head CTS Imaging


    Hi-Definition Screen Imaging for the Garment or Commercial Printer

    The Lawson Express-Jet CTS v5 is an easy-to-use industrial ink jet printer. It is shipped fully assembled, and can be ready to print within hours after arrival in your shop.

    By incorporating Ricoh Gen V print head technology you can print halftones up to 65 - 85 line, select your dot shape, resolution and ink deposit. Black dye, with special UV inhibitors, ensures a dark, crisp image every time on almost all emulsions. Image quality is superior to the older model Ricoh Gen IV print heads.

    You will achieve nearly instant "on-press" registration with Lawson's 3-Point Register Guide, the M&R Tri-Loc or other systems.
