Intec is now adding the previously optional white and clear toner kits for its ColorSplash CS5000 sheet-fed press as standard, saying that this makes CMYK plus white or clear ‘affordable and accessible’.

According to Intec, applications for the clear toner with the 50ppm (A4) press include security-related items such as ID cards, event tickets and wristbands, as well as emulation of spot-UV gloss, while white can be used on coloured or transparent stocks for premium effects for corporate or wedding work.

The ColorSplash CS5000 is a five-colour SRA3 press that offers 1200 x 1200dpi resolution and can print to a maximum sheet length of 1321mm for banner production. A modular system allow the addition of a multiple drawer cabinet, high-capacity feeder, production envelope feeder, shingling conveyor and Fiery XF Rip for enhanced workflow and colour management, in addition to the banner extension tray. Single-sided print on media up to 450gsm is supported, 320gsm for duplex, and a wide range of substrates is supported, including paper, card, film and various synthetic media.
