DAP (Dot Advanced Positioning) is an integrated system between the waveform, printheads and ink that enables automatic head alignment for maximum precision with the lowest ink consumption. By offering a proprietary waveform rather than a generic one, it guarantees an advanced control over the printheads which results in an unmatchable drop accuracy and consistent print results.

DAP delivers its promise: the lowest ink consumption and maximum precision to obtain the highest quality output.
