Colordyne Technologies (Brookfield, Wisconsin) has announced the promotion of John Urban to Product Manager – Production Class. Urban will be responsible for product development as well as organic and strategic business growth of Colordyne’s new 3600 Series aqueous pigment inkjet technology. In his previous position, Urban played a key role in product and technology development for the 3600 Series aqueous pigment engine. With his in-depth knowledge of Colordyne’s newest technology, he’ll continue to support development efforts while building a long-term vision and growth strategy for the product line. He’ll also manage customer success for Colordyne’s Production Class solutions by ensuring production plans, timelines and product capabilities meet client expectations.

The Colordyne 3600 Series UV Retrofit provides a cost-effective method for adding digital UV printing capabilities to existing converting equipment.

“As product manager for Colordyne’s Production Class solutions, one of my priorities is developing strong relationships with suppliers and print providers,” said Urban. “Colordyne’s newest technology will open new markets to customers who are looking to integrate an aqueous pigment print engine into their systems, as well as clients who are interested in adding digital print production to their businesses. The pigment ink works with more substrates than other aqueous inkjet technology and offers enhanced durability to meet a wider range of business and application needs.”

Previously, Urban served as Colordyne’s mechanical engineer. He was involved in the design and development of the 2800 Series Mini Laser Pro, 3600 Series UV Retrofit, and worked on various 3600 Series AQ products. Urban has over 20 years of experience working as a mechanical engineer and over 17 years of experience in the printing industry. Before joining Colordyne, he was a manufacturing process manager for LS Research and spent 16 years as a senior mechanical engineer at QuadTech.

Colordyne will be hosting an open house at its headquarters in Brookfield on March 27, 2019, to showcase the new 3600 Series aqueous pigment print engine. Attendees will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the engine and Colordyne’s full suite of solutions.
