Projecta’s best seller, the Evolve series of printers evolved in 2011 with the Evo7 70 model: single-pass industrial printer capable of installing up to 7 colour bars and decorating a maximum print coverage of 70 cm.
The result of the first years of experience in digital printing on ceramic, Evo7 is immediately appreciated for its ease of use, machine accessibility and ease of maintenance.

In 2015, given the rapid evolution of technology, Evolve Hybrid 8 (EvoH8) was created: a printer capable of installing up to 8 colour bars as well as different print head models.
Flexibility and speed of production, application of effects and materials become the keywords that mark the new production needs.

The Evo series had the great merit of bringing a technology such as digital printing, considered by many too complex for the ceramic decoration line, within everyone’s reach.

Evolve: compact, simple, versatile.

We want to create unique solutions for our customers.
Not just in the ceramic world. This is why we put our skills at the service of other sectors.


Digital printing within everyone’s reach.

Discover the Evolve world.

Compactness, simplicity of construction and use make the models in this series versatile and intuitive.
Printers that can be fully integrated into the new industrial automation systems, allow various levels of customization: from altering the machine set-up for the use of UV inks, IR inks, soluble salts and water-based inks, up to the adaptation of the conveyor to the printing of different substrates, not just ceramic tiles.


The removable colour bars allow easy access to the machine, ensuring simple, quick and economical maintenance.

The colour configuration can be changed quickly thanks to removable, repositionable and interchangeable bars between machines in the same series.

Seiko RC1536 M or L, Xaar 100x series, Xaar 200x series are the different head models supported. To meet different needs.

The G-Syncro structure and image detector allows images printed by EvoH8 to be combined with images and structures from any other digital printer.

Two different flows of material can be decorated simultaneously.

The self-adjustment of the printing height allows downtime and discarded material to be reduced and to protect the print heads.

The recognition of the temperature of the substrate to be decorated helps to preserve the print quality of the heads over time.
