Print objects can be transported to the printer either manually or automatically with the help of the carousel plate. Depending on the feeding mode, different print widths and heights result. When Eddie is used in manual mode the food needs to be placed directly on the feeding arm. Alternatively, specially made trays can be used.
Up to 12 print objects can be positioned on the carousel plate. During printing these can be easily placed and picked, which enables a continuous, smooth workflow.
No change in taste
Due to direct printing there is no strange film or aftertaste, which would decrease the quality of the food.
Food printers in this price range usually print on wafer paper or fondant sheets. When those are glued to the product, they not only change the appearance and taste of the product, but can also reduce its value (e.g. a macaron with a stuck on wafer). Eddie prints directly onto the food item which allows for a highly professional look and great detail. Even curved and uneven surfaces produce great looking results
Full food safety certifications
Eddie was designed to be used in food processing environments to fulfil all hygienic standards. Stainless steel housing, easy to clean components and certified ink with EU and FDA approvals make Eddie the safest direct-to-food printer in its class.
Enclosed printhead and ink cartridge
Eddie has the printhead and ink compartment in one cartridge which gives no chance during operation to build up bacteria in ink pipes or fixed installed printheads. If the ink is depleted, the insertion of a new cartridge takes seconds. With every cartridge change, you also always use a new printhead and thus literally get a new printer.
Trays and spacers, that are especially developed for Eddie, are available for both feeding options. These allow printing on a wide variety of objects within the specifications. Customised trays can be produced on request.
