CET Color (Atlanta, Georgia), a manufacturer of wide-format UV flatbed and hybrid printers, has announced the latest in its line of equipment. The Handyway DG 1560 61.4-inch Direct-to-Corrugated Printer is a state-of-the-art corrugated printer that features Kyocera print technology utilizing 2,656 nozzles per head. It can print up to 492 feet per minute on cardboard 0.43 inches thick. “The packaging market is craving something new, said Javier Mahmoud, CET Color Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “They’ve been waiting for a machine that can literally eliminate make-ready time. We spoke to one client who said, ‘you’ll save us at least 1.5 hours in between jobs – and the ability to do variable data for the packaging industry is something this market will really enjoy.’ CET Color is morphing into a leader when it comes to technology. We’ve had this project in our cross-hairs for quite some time. Being able to see it grow into reality is really something for the company to be proud of.”
