Tonejet announces next stage in it's digital print head

Tuesday, April 01, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Cambridge, UK; 31st March 2008 -- Tonejet, the leader in deposition printing technology, has begun work to make its digital print head technology more readily available to customers using sheet-fed and web-based printing techniques. Tonejet is on track to complete development and testing in time to deliver the new version of its print head to customer sites in 2009.

The new head has been designed to maintain the key benefits of existing Tonejet products, including single pass, high-quality capabilities at industrial production speeds and competitive costs. Its introduction enables Tonejet technology to be adopted in wider commercial and industrial printing applications.

The program follows Tonejet's successful development of the industry's widest integrated digital print head, which was launched in November 2007 with deliveries due in the first half of this year. That print head has already been proven to enable a significant sector of food and drink packaging to be printed in a single pass, bringing substantial logistics and cost savings.

Ray Southam, CEO of Tonejet, comments: "This is an important step for Tonejet. We are working with a number of industry partners to ensure that the Tonejet print technology is configured in a way which will deliver the best results and the greatest flexibility in industrial applications. Our commitment to creating a smaller sized print engine demonstrates that we are also supporting our partners in markets outside the food and drink packaging sectors."

Tonejet digital print technology enables fully variable, high quality, high-speed decoration at competitive costs. The high-precision dot control, means that it is now possible to create digitally the excellent image quality and colour usually associated with traditional print methods, on any surface, with a robust, thin and flexible ink layer.
