Dryfix is the series of single pass industrial printers in which digital technology and traditional application technique blend together.

Dryfix is a digital-traditional hybrid system capable of applying glass grit and more, on the ceramic substrate to be decorated, thus allowing the creation of material effects such as: veins, contrasts, textures, structures, up to a total and perfectly uniform coverage of the substrate to be decorated, so as to be able to create full lapped products.

The main advantage of this system is in the quality of the application: precise and accurate control in the spreading of the grit, much more uniform spreading, the possibility of creating shades of grit, reduction of waste, greater reproducibility of the finished product.

Dryfix: the application of matter between tradition and innovation.

We want to create unique and cutting-edge solutions.
This is why we put our skills at the service of our customers.


The essence of matter.

Discover the Dryfix world.

A leader in this type of application, Projecta now offers the machine set-up compatible with water-based adhesive inks, optimized in order to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere, a fundamental theme in the production of large slabs or in any case where there is high ink consumption. Dryfix digital printers can be fully integrated into new industrial automation systems.


In combination with the G-Syncro image and structures detector, Dryfix allows the creation of interlocking products: it thus becomes possible to associate a digital application of grit to an image previously printed by any printer upstream of Dryfix.

Machine accessibility is guaranteed thanks to the removable colour bars and hopper: maintenance interventions are simple, quick and economical.

Different head models are supported to satisfy the most diverse application needs: Seiko RC1536 M or L, Xaar series 100x, Xaar series 200x.

Ability to use the secondary colour bar for other effects: sinking ink, glossy ink, white ink, etc.
