Colordyne Technologies (Brookfield, WI) has introduced the 2600 Series Mini Press as part of its new Commercial Class line of products that bridge the gap between its 1600 Series Industrial Class products and its 3600 Series Production Class products – thus creating a “best-in-class” portfolio of digital colour printing equipment powered by Memjet technology. “Colordyne’s position as the leading provider of Memjet technology continues to strengthen with the addition of the 2600 Series Mini Press,” said Taylor Buckthorpe, Colordyne Director of Marketing (pictured previously). “We now offer three distinct product classes that provide users with a fitted solution for their digital colour printing needs.”
The 2600 Series Mini Press is aimed at label converters and brand owners who are looking for an out-of-the-box, roll-to-roll digital printing solution to handle the ever-growing consumer demand for short-run digital labels. The Mini Press makes use of a single Memjet printhead capable of printing at 60 feet per minute (18 m/min) at 1,600 x 1,600 dpi. Colordyne added that what differentiates this single printhead platform from others in the industry is its self-predicative printhead maintenance that decreases operator intervention and increases uptime. A robust, dually-supported frame, with the capacity to handle 24-inch (600 mm) outside diameter rolls, and a servo driven web-handling system, allows customers to produce longer run lengths on this smaller-size press.
The 2600 Series Mini Press also has industry-standard Harlequin RIP and a 15-inch touchscreen, providing the operator with an easy-to-use workflow and user interface capable of handling variable-data applications. As far as finishing, Colordyne has partnered with offline finishing solutions providers to offer users flexible and affordable finishing solutions to meet their specific application needs.
