IMPIKA To Launch iPrint eVolution at drupa 2012

Press release from the issuing company

As product and technology announcements accumulate during this period of the year, IMPIKA introduces yet another show-stopper with its iPrint eVolution, a new industrial platform which offers durable and scalable printing solutions.

Driven by customer needs and market orientations, IMPIKA is aware that today’s expectations may be different from those of tomorrow. It has therefore developed this unique iPrint eVolution platform to ensure that customer needs are always met, even as those needs evolve over time (print configurations, speeds and quality).

The iPrint eVolution platform will be on display at the Impika booth (Hall 5, C24) at Drupa 2012 (Düsseldorf, 3-16 May 2012).

Evolution combined with durability
With a technological platform already acknowledged by the market, the iPrint eVolution is built on the basis of a print chassis designed to accommodate up to 4 print heads. The standard version of the machine prints with two print heads at a speed of 40 to 125m/min with resolutions of 1200 to 360 dpi. The printer’s output can be doubled with the addition of two print heads, producing at a speed ranging from 75m/min up to 250 m/min with a competitive print cost.  

With five available print resolutions, the iPrint eVolution offers the largest range of print quality among industrial inkjet printers, from 360x600 dpi to 2400x1200 dpi, including a new and exclusive 600x600 dpi with four levels of greyscale.

The iPrint eVolution platform meets and exceeds trade requirements for direct marketing, transpromo and transactional processing as well as for newspaper and book publishing. The iPrint eVolution offers a high degree of modularity, accommodating continuous feed roll-to-roll or roll-to-sheet with one or two towers. Twin engines can be configured together in line set up (I), in U shape (U) or in L shape (L) as well as separately for even more flexibility.

Data workflow is managed through a custom designed IPDS controller offering a rich set of format options that can be updated according to expectations.

All upgrade operations are performed at the client site without any impact on machine layout nor significant interruption to job processing. One additional training session is sufficient for operators and service personnel already familiar with printer operations.

“The advantage to our clients is measurable. This eVolution concept enables to spread and secure their investment over time, while offering performance and state of the art technology. iPrint eVolution is a solution built to last and to evolve at the client’s pace,” says Impika CEO Paul Morgavi.

The iPrint eVolution platform was very quickly recognized by print professionals as an optimized and secured investment for scalable development. A number of iPrint eVolution platforms have already been installed and are operational in France and in Australia.

With such flexibility and reactivity there can be little wonder that IMPIKA calls upon its clients to “Print Your Difference”. Stay tuned for even more new and innovative solutions to be presented by IMPIKA, during the buildup to Drupa 2012.
