Digital printing


Single-pass and multi-pass digital printing solutions for direct printing on flooring and furniture panels as well as digital printing of decor paper.
 

Traditional printing techniques of laminate decor paper (furniture/flooring) require large volumes to make the process economical. Therefore both customizing decors and launching new decors is a costly process consuming a great deal of time and effort. Although digital printing has been around as a dreamt-of solution for several years, the development efforts of Unilin have now made it ready to also breakthrough in the flooring and furniture industry.
