Digital printing technologies


UNILIN's digital printing technologies are revolutionizing flooring and furniture production.

DIGICOR & DIGIPRIME: Digital decor printing

DIGICOR is a total digital solution for high volume, high speed decor paper printing. DIGICOR combines dedicated, conventionally coated primers from UNILIN (DIGIPRIME) with perfectly matched Agfa pigmented inkjet inks in a single pass high speed production environment. DIGICOR delivers a wide color gamut with amazing print quality and low ink consumption. Sharply priced, these ink-primer sets will compete head-to-head with high-volume gravure printing. Other advantages over gravure include cost-effective short runs, rapid set-up, stock and wastage reduction, design flexibility.

To explore the full benefits, join Jasmine Geerinckx (UNILIN) and Marc Graindourze (Agfa) in their Domotex presentation – see below for details.

DIGITOUCH: Lifelike, digitally-printed 3D textures

Industrial inkjet printing direct onto boards and rigid floors can produce very convincing reproductions of natural materials like wood and stone but people quickly spot the difference when the authentic 3D texture is missing. DIGITOUCH is a licensable inkjet technology for applying lifelike 3D textures directly onto boards and rigid flooring, ensuring in-register embossing. It offers endless design flexibility, including multi-gloss effects, and virtually any plank format is supported. DIGITOUCH improves production output and opens new market opportunities for rigid flooring.
