Printware (St. Paul, Minnesota), a leading supplier of pre-press and digital solutions to the printing industry, will introduce the iJetColorNXT and offer significant upgrades and improvements to its iJetColor Envelope Press and iJetColorPro Light Industrial Inkjet Press (for commercial print, mail and packaging providers) during Print 18 at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois September 30-October 2 in booth 2000. The iJetColorNXT has received the coveted RedHot Technology Designation in the Digital Press category from the tradeshow. RedHot Technology highlights innovations from the industry’s top vendors that will both impact and revolutionize this growing market segment. The iJetColor family is comprised of three Memjet-based inkjet presses that can print full-colour filled or unfilled envelopes of various sizes and shapes, plus a wide variety of packaging media for volumes from 1,750 to over 10,000 variable images per hour.
The iJetColorNXT is “the fastest inkjet envelope press in the benchtop category” and will be shown with the next generation of iJetColorPro print systems that use a highly reliable vacuum conveyor system to deliver products for personalization – utilizing the industry-leading Memjet single-page wide head that delivers 6 ips and 12 ips full-colour imaging. A more flexible design in these new products provides rugged and reliable feeding with capabilities from 4” to 14” widths, to 17”-length media, with an 8.7” maximum imaging width and maximum product thickness from 1/2” to 1.”
The iJetColor family adds three significant improvements to the inkjet marketplace:
- iJetColorNXT: A more flexible, straight paper path designed for high speed (6,000+/hr.) imaging for print and addressing .
- iJetColorPro: A newly designed high-speed light industrial printer that allows full-bleed imaging with a first-ever print gap for high-speed full-colour sheetfed printing for a wide range of print and packaging media, with speeds from 7,120 to 10,000+/hr. with robust vacuum-feeding conveyor and full-bleed capabilities.
- iJetColor: New workflow, colour management software, improved media feeding and handling with all products – including the iJetColor envelope press.
“The iJetColor family of products is the result of our commitment to our customers to constantly meet the most demanding inkjet print applications, that need to produce not only the highest quality full colour in very high volume applications, but also to ensure the lowest total cost of ownership” said Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “Since our first shipments began in 2013, our customers have counted on enhancements that increase their productivity and profitability. Today, with this product family launch, our customers have a complete line of inkjet solutions that best meet their short-run personalization needs, while generating maximum profits.” The entire iJetColor line will be available for commercial shipments in October 2018.
