As part of the agreement, Supply55 will become the exclusive source for the Tricksy R2R Bulk Feed and Take-up System for Roland, Mutoh, Hewlett Packard and Mimaki ink jet printers.

  • Requires only 3" of material fed from the ink jet printer to begin the web tensioning process.
  • Temperature controlled drying unit and 7' web length before substrate gets wound within the take-up roller nearly guarantees dry ink with any ink/media combination.
