Heidelberg's 4D Printing Technology
Making customized and personalized objects by printing directly on them is now even easier with Heidelberg's new 4D printer, the Omnifire. The Omnifire works by using highly accurate robotic arms to hold and move the object around the print heads. The print heads actually spray ink at the object from a short distance ensuring a consistent quality across a range of objects, while still producing over 1,000 DPI. The Omnifire does a spectacular job at producing highly customized and personalized items in short runs, and can be used on the production line or with a warehouse. The printing process is quick as well, as demonstrated in the video below. Heidelberg has teamed up with early adopters to work on new businesses models that take advantage of the technology.
