  • The TriJet utilizes industrial-grade drop-on-demand piezo inkjet technology to print process color UV-curable polymer ink direct to rolls of reflective license plate sheeting. Featuring up to 18 Ricoh Gen6 printheads, the TriJet produces outstanding quality graphic prints on reflective license plate film. TriJet will print the license plate images in a continuous indexing print queue using a scanning inkjet print module for controlled depth of color, superior edge clarity, and enhanced tonal range. With a production output of up to 2000 plate images per hour, the TriJet is a perfect fit for every digital license plate production system.
