Customers to Benefit from Aquaflex, Jetrion Partnership

Friday, June 23, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

DUNCANSVILLE PA– Aquaflex announces a partnership with Jetrion, the Michigan-based manufacturer of industrial inkjet products and services. Under this agreement, the two companies will co-design mounts and other critical components to optimize Jetrion’s industry-leading 3025 printing system for use on Aquaflex’s comprehensive line of flexo presses, including the new ELS Servo press. The partnership will leverage both companies’ individual strengths to deliver in-line inkjet solutions to the narrow web label marketplace. Jetrion brings to the agreement a solid reputation as an industry-leading provider of inkjet solutions specifically designed for flexo presses. Aquaflex brings its strong user base, sales and service infrastructure, and a history of innovation in servo-driven press technology. According to Kenneth Stack, President of Jetrion, the agreement is a natural fit. “Our investment and focus on digital printing marries nicely with the innovative press offerings from Aquaflex,” Stack explains. “And that integration will continue to show dividends. We fully expect that Aquaflex, with their in-depth knowledge of real world variable data applications, will help influence the design of future inkjet systems that will result in greater shop-floor efficiency and profitability.” Mac Rosenbaum, Aquaflex Vice President, agrees that the most important benefit is to customers—particularly those currently using Aquaflex Argio units. “This partnership gives our Argio customers a clear upgrade path with a well-respected, state-of-the-art digital technology platform. It will offer users a level of flexibility they haven’t experienced before.” Specifically, Jetrion digital printers offer: •Widths from 2.4 to 14.4 inches •Speeds up to 400 fpm with UV inks •Resolution of up to 526x316 dpi •Variability to print text, barcodes, bitmaps and graphics •A Windows-based controller capable of read and print applications •Compatibility with any type of flat file, such as .bmp, .tif, .pdf, etc. Rosenbaum also sees wider impact for Aquaflex product development. “We’re committed to bringing leading-edge technology to our customers—not to reinventing the wheel,” he says. “With Jetrion’s experience and installed base on digital, there was no reason for us to design another digital print station. This partnership will allow us to better focus our strengths as a manufacturer. Everybody—Aquaflex, Jetrion, and the customer—will be stronger for it.”
