Jetrion Launches New Digital UV Inkjet Color Press For Full-Color Label Printing

Thursday, September 14, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

YPSILANTI, MI – September 13, 2006 – Jetrion LLC, a leading supplier of inkjet printers, inks and custom systems, launched a new digital UV inkjet press at Labelexpo this week. The new Jetrion 4000 Series Inkjet System delivers full-color labels in production volumes with quality comparable to flexography, and production costs significantly lower than current digital color presses. Developed for short- and medium-length narrow web production runs, as well as variable data imaging, the Jetrion 4000 series of digital inkjet color presses gives label converters all the advantages of UV inks coupled with the immediate and low-cost changeover of digital printing. Because the only consumable required is the UV ink developed and manufactured by Jetrion, usage costs of the Jetrion 4000 are significantly lower than those of other types of digital color printing. The press utilizes advanced UV inkjet hardware and Jetrion's new UV4000 set of CMYK inks to print full-color labels at fast digital speeds on an ever-increasing range of papers, films, foils and small caliper tag stocks. The first Jetrion 4000 has already been installed in a production facility in the United States. Jetrion is currently in discussions with label printers and label end-users for placements of the digital inkjet color press in other label production environments. Production units of the Jetrion 4000 will ship in the first quarter of 2007. Dr. Ken Stack, president of Jetrion, noted, “Jetrion's UV digital inkjet color technology holds tremendous promise with its grayscale quality of print making it a perfect fit for secondary labels and industrial labels, a sub-segment that makes up over 50% of the market. It provides quality images at higher production speeds with lower operating costs than other, more complex digital printing systems. “The Jetrion 4000 makes it far more cost-effective for label printers and their customers to efficiently handle label jobs from small test quantities to full production runs,” Stack added. “It's another important landmark in our commitment to introduce new inkjet technologies and products that advance productivity and quality in digital printing.” Offered in widths of 4-, 6- and 8-inches, the Jetrion 4000 fits a range of applications for short- and medium-run batch and variable printing, including industrial, electronic, automotive, shelf and shipping labels, as well as a range of tags, tickets and forms. Jetrion has incorporated Xaar-based grayscale printheads and high-performance UV-curing technology into the turnkey printer. Because the Jetrion 4000 runs like a printing press rather than a stop-and-go laser printer, standard converting and finishing equipment can be seamlessly added. Earlier this year, Jetrion unveiled another technology breakthrough in high quality inkjet color printing for packaging – the world's first high-resolution, full color, digital inkjet printing on a metal can.
