Easily integrated into any existing press as a digital add-on module,

turning it into a cost-effective color digital press.


Morpho Color  is available in 3 models - C108/ C216/ C108P – for full-color variable data printing (VDP) and short-run printing applications.

Utilizing Kyocera KJ4 print head, the world's fastest and highest resolution piezo inkjet print head technology, Morpho Color meets the increasing and rigorous demands for printing barcodes, serial numbers, dates, logos, images, times, and text on coated and uncoated substrates.

Morpho Color is suitable for web printing, sheet-fed printing, and both online and offline targeted marking printing. The modular design offers greater flexibility to combine the Morpho Color with different technologies, such as feeding, UV curing, camera inspection, or host PC. Moreover, different head modules of Morpho Color and Morpho can be combined to make a more complicated printing system for different print widths and print positions. 

Morpho Color prints clear and sharp edges at the high resolution of 600X600dpi. Text as small as 4pt is perfectly legible. Since Drupa 2008, Morpho's underlying technology has been proven commercially in use in over 100 print engines installed worldwide.
