Quantum 4C Info

For all your single-pass variable colour printing needs on a variety of flat printing substrates.

Uncompromising, high-resolution colour printing

Offering high-speed, single-pass variable printing for your sheet or web-fed printing applications, the Quantum 4C delivers exceptional 600×1200 DPI colour images up to 4.25” (108mm) wide. With Compose IQ colour management software, easily layout and combine variable and fixed colour elements including PDF, graphics, text and barcode elements to prepare your colour images.
Working with a qualified set of CMYK UV-curable inks supported by user-defined ICC colour profiles that can be applied at print time, you’ll find that the Quantum 4C includes everything you’ll need to attain the widest colour spectrum and closest reproduction for all your colour print jobs.

Whether you want to simply imprint a colour logo, add a tag line on pre-printed matter, packaging products, and labels, or apply a full colour image on blank products look no further than the Quantum 4C.

Remarkable Colour Print results

With up to 600 x 1200 DPI resolution, a vertical print swath of 4.25” (108mm), drops varying in size from 3 to 14 pl, optional ink pinning, and Bosch UV-curable inks, the Quantum 4C comes with all the tools needed to tune and produce extremely crisp, vibrant colour images on a variety of flat substrates including paper, plastics and packaging materials. Using qualified Bosch pigmented UV inks, carefully mounted and aligned colour print modules, and a micro-jet alignment software tool, the printer achieves precise colour registration resulting in near offset-like colour images. And when you need that little extra to enhance image quality on certain substrates, an optional bank (4) of LED pinning lamps is available to maintain drop placement and limit ink spread by “freezing” individual ink drops prior to full cure.
Designed to extend the life of the print modules, optimize print performance, and manage ink supply from the bottle to the print module, the Quantum 4C incorporates Buskro’s proven Trueflow active ink management system. By actively pumping, filtering and degassing each of the inks, an adequate amount of treated colour inks (C,M,Y,K) is supplied to each of the print modules, ensuring that continuous high-speed colour printing is achieved for even the most demanding print jobs. With the inclusion of automated maintenance for occasional cleaning and maintenance, the system maintains perfect print conditions and is ready to print at a moment’s notice.

Compose IQ Colour Management Tools

Tools to apply specific colours to graphical elements such as text, lines, and boxes from a collection of stored colour palettes are also present. Even produce “white” print by masking out the colour background. Most critically, to optimize the device’s colour gamut and ensure the greatest colour accuracy possible on specific materials, Compose includes the ability to create, load, and apply user-defined ICC colour profiles at print time. By selecting and applying an ICC colour profile, adjusting print resolution and regulating drop volume, and subjecting the resulting UV print to pinning, the Quantum 4C has what it takes to achieve optimal colour reproduction and produce the most vibrant images on a wide range of substrates.

CMYK Ink Set

Choose Bosch, a true and tried UV ink that has demonstrated its abilities on most common substrates for over 20 years, and if you require a formulation with enhanced flow characteristics for streak-free print on plastics and other materials that limit ink flow, then Picart is the ink of choice.
Inks are qualified to work together to maximize the colour gamut and the application of an ICC colour profile adjusts the colour output to get the colors you want on specific substrates.

Quantum Applications

The Quantum comes as a complete stand-alone system to print on individual products and includes feeding, transporting, inspecting, and material diverting capabilities. It is also a great option for integrating onto a pre-existing web, transport or label press where complimentary variable colour/monochrome print is desired. Some examples are full-colour envelopes at the output of inserters, pre-printed package branding, colour label and flat box printing, and the imprinting of promotional and marketing materials. Even combine fixed colour PDF files with variable black content such as text, barcodes, codes, and serial numbers to print all information and content in one-pass.

When you want a variable data colour print system that can personalize and apply vibrant colour images on a variety of printed matter, packaging products, and labels either on a web or as a cut-sheet application, the Quantum 4C is the printer for you.
