The iPrint 250 to make its European debut at Hunkeler Innovation Days 2011

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Aubagne - France - World Premiered last November in Tokyo, the IMPIKA iPrint 250 will be introduced to the European market and extensively featured at the Hunkeler Innovationdays in Lucerne, Switzerland (February 14 -17, 2011).

It is at the heart of Europe, during a unique international digital printing event, that “iPrint 250”, “the ultra high speed” version of IMPIKA’s continuous feed, colour production printers, already recognized as the “fastest printer on the market”, will be unveiled.

Ever attentive to market feedback, IMPIKA has pushed far beyond the limits of the DOD inkjet to introduce a digital color solution answering the high productivity demands of transactional, book and newspaper publishers. Environmentally friendly, aqueous inks applied at high resolutions and at rates exceeding 250 m/mn place IMPIKA and the iPrint 250 in the winner’s circle providing advanced digital production printing.

At Hunkeler Innovation Days, the visitors will experience live demonstrations on IMPIKA (stand S06) showcasing the unique combination of the iPrint 250 performances. For the occasion, the printer will be equipped with the Hunkeler UW6 unwinder and RW6 rewinder as well as a new generation camera which allows print inspection at ultra high speeds.

Producing over 200,000 A4 images per hour, the iPrint 250 is designed around a state-of-theart AFP/IPDS data controller, “iController”, designed to manage very large volumes. Programmed specifically to handle variable colour data-streams without reduction of speed, the iController has also an embedded dynamic management of color profiles (CMR/Color Management Ressources).

The iPrint 250 draws attention with its evolutive architecture and large flexibility of configurations (360x600 dpi or 600x600 dpi and optional 1200x600 dpi) with according speed.

Variable output resolution and the ability to handle a wide range of papers (from 50 to 250gr) greatly expand the range of applications in areas of transactional, direct marketing, transpromotional, newspaper and book publishing.

Paul Morgavi, IMPIKA Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The Hunkeler Innovation Days trade show is a major opportunity for us to launch our latest continuous feed, colour production printer, the iPrint 250, positioning again our technology advance. Visitors of our booth will see for themselves how speed and quality graphics can be combined in a managed variable data environment to produce high yields at an exceptionally low cost per finished print.”

In view of rapidly evolving markets, a “wider” version of the iPrint 250, printing currently at up to 474 mm, is already in production. The “XL” version of the iPrint 250, integrating 28'' (711mm) print heads, is due to be released in the second half of 2011. It is especially well suited for newspaper and book publishing applications. A perspective that speaks volumes about IMPIKA’s new slogan, ”Print your difference”.
