Cantisa’s digitally printed edge bands: creativity with no limits

When the first digital printer was developed almost 30 years ago, it meant a revolution in the graphic arts industry. Years later, this technology was adapted to other applications, such as board manufacturing, where it is used to faithfully reproduce designs on different surfaces. Digital printing makes possible to imitate wood, stone, textile, concrete, and even the most complex fantasy designs.

Now, Cantisa benefits from this innovative technology to provide even more high-level quality edge bands.

Free rein to creativity

Digital printing opens the door to a world of new possibilities. Here you have some proposals to awaken your creative side and make the most of our digitally printed edgebands.

Let your imagination run wild and create your own designs, stamping a unique mark on every work.

Advantages of digital printing on edgebands vs. cylinder printing

Digital printing gets rid of design limitations: we can scan whatever surface or image and print it exactly the same on the edgeband, with a 720 dpi resolution. It is also possible to print any digital image or custom design.

And there’s more: our digital printer can reproduce any gloss level and even textures! So we can get perfect reproductions of the original surface, or develop custom edgeband designs, with short turnaround times.

Before digital printing was applied to edgebanding production, all our edge bands were printed by cylinders that applied ink in several steps. This method limited our capability of reproducing complex designs since some of them had to be simplified and some others could not be reproduced at all. Also, when a new melamine design arrived on the market, the development of a printing cylinder entailed additional production time and cost.
