Onset X1-Series



The New Onset X Series

Now Inca raises the bar again with the ground-breaking new Onset X Series. Onset X takes the Scalable Architecture concept of future-proof technology even further to provide print service providers with the most complete range of high-quality, high-performance large-format UV printers on the market. See the Onset X Guide for detailed information.

Onset X is the result of in-depth consultation with large-format print producers of all sizes and working in all sectors. When we asked them what were the most important factors influencing their choice of printer, freedom and security came top of the list. Freedom, because in fast-moving businesses like POS and signage, it’s vital to be able to adapt quickly to change and explore potential opportunities as they arise. Security, because producers want a printer that not only meets their needs today but can respond to what’s around the corner.

onsetIn a nutshell, they don’t want to be forced to compromise by choosing between quality and productivity. In an ideal world, they want the choice of printer to be the simplest decision they make – because wherever they take the business, they know the printer will continue to provide the productivity and quality that’s right for

One platform, infinite potential

The Onset X1, Onset X2 and Onset X3 enable print service providers to produce the widest spectrum of POS graphics, from everyday signage to the
highest-quality backlit displays for demanding markets such as cosmetics and luxury consumer good.

Onset X provides a single-platform, scalable solution that users can configure just as they wish to provide exactly the combination of speed and/or colours they need. They can start out with the Onset X1 and – as the business develops – upgrade first to the Onset X2 and eventually to the top-of-the-range Onset X3.

Unique 14-channel potential

Key to this flexibility – and unique among high-end large-format flatbed printers – is the 14-channel design of every Onset X. This means that, for example, an eight-channel Onset X1, with one set of CMYK plus LmLcWO, can be fitted with an additional six-channel carriage to become the Onset X2 (adding a second set of CMYK) then transformed again into a top-of-the-range Onset X3 (3 x CMYK plus W or O). And because Inca has engineered modularity into the new platform, upgrades can be carried out at customers’ sites and completed in a few days, minimising downtime


With a maximum throughput of up to 560m²/hr (equivalent to 112 full-bed sheets/hr), Onset X1 is ideal for companies producing a mix of fast-turnaround retail graphics for distance viewing and high-quality images for close-up viewing. Of the eight channels, four print CMYK and the remainder can be configured as required using any of light magenta, light cyan, white and orange (LcLmWO). When the time is right, an additional six-channel carriage can be added to scale up to the Onset X2.
