Monday, July 26, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Expoprint is one of the biggest print exhibitions in Latin America. This graphic industry exhibition brings together 200 suppliers and manufacturers from around the world and was visited by around 70,000 integrators and end users in 2010.

IIJ have installed their first inkjet print engine "ColourPrint" in Latin America and this was demonstrated at Expoprint 2010 by their Brazilian integrator, Comprint. "For label and credit cards applications, the ColourPrint 72 (CP72) has been Comprint's main innovation at the show, attracting the attention of new and existing customers,"  said Christian Vörlander, CEO of Comprint.  "At Comprint we are happy to announce that we have already sold a CP72 to one of our customers in Sao Paulo."  Mr Vörlander foresees this is the beginning of a new venture in the digital market.

As part of Industrial Inkjet's strategy to promote and demonstrate the potential of Konica Minolta Inkjet Technology, IIJ, together with Comprint, demonstrated the capabilities of the CP72, making on site print samples during the eight days of the show. Using Konica-Minolta 1024 printheads, IIJ proved the potential of the CP72 for graphic and industrial printing applications including label print, product decoration and varnish.

"Konica Minolta IJ has become a very popular head in the wide-format market.  In the single pass market we are first company to install this technology" said Esteban Marin, Technical Manager of Industrial Inkjet Ltd for Central and South America.  "We also have many interesting projects for inkjet single pass printing from integrators in Peru, Chile and Mexico."
