DANVERS, Massachusetts , April 17, 2023 (press release) –

The new model incorporates market leading features into a benchtop compatible design

Global printing industry leader Inkcups is excited to announce the global launch of the groundbreaking addition to the Helix® line of direct-to-object printers, the Helix® ONE benchtop digital cylinder printer. Building on the success of the Helix® range, the Helix® ONE encompasses the power and productivity of Inkcups’ patented Helix® technology in a compact, space-efficient industrial design.

The Helix® ONE is a dedicated cylinder printer printing full CMYKW and varnish onto straight walled and tapered cylindrical objects including plastic bottles, stainless tumblers, powder-coated drinkware and much more. Designed for fast, high-quality printing, this compact machine features a servo driven fully automatic programmable tooling fixture, with height adjust and high-precision linear drive.

Benjamin Adner, CEO comments: “The Helix® ONE is a major game-changer. It is the result of listening to our customers and trying to develop a more modular machine that could be run independently as an entry level printer, in a kiosk or in dedicated work cells for industrial users. I envision a Helix® ONE in every shop, next to their laser engraver, screen printer, embroiderer and small format digital flatbed printer. We are bringing a significant number of state-of-the-art features, incredible print quality, and excellent speed into this new, compact piece of machinery. We are proud to introduce the world’s first benchtop direct-to-object cylinder printer and we hope it will be a major success.”
