TrojanTwo Digital Label Press Excites the Label Converters

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Copenhagen - After the new TrojanTwo digital label press from Trojanlabel was introduced at Label Expo in Chicago in the fall 2014, close to 30 presses have been ordered by converters. Both small and large converters are among the customers, and Trojanlabel has increased their forecast to 125 digital presses delivered to customers in 2015.

Label Converter, IkonPrint, Impressed by the Quality

TrojanTwo is a state of the art digital roll-to-roll label printing system, capable of printing full color, high quality labels at low printing costs. The press is built around a Memjet print head and due to advanced technology developed by Trojanlabel, the print quality is taken to a very high level ensuring consistent print quality over long runs. This is one of the reasons why IkonPrint, a Danish label converter, was very excited when first seeing TrojanTwo in action. “I was really impressed with the quality of the print. Even when the color density in the print is high, the print is flawless and the colors are crisp. I wouldn’t expect this from a label press this size, and it is really fascinating to see how consistent the print is. I pretty quickly decided to buy the TrojanTwo” says Mr. Thomas Nielsen, the owner of IkonPrint. IkonPrint has previously had other Memjet based systems, but TrojanTwo is the first solution enabling them to print high resolution print in large runs with a consistent high quality.

Etiquette Théophiles Saw Value for Money

Etiquette Théophiles, a label converter in France, was in the market for a digital label press and was looking towards more expensive solutions when they came across TrojanTwo. “We were looking for high quality printing and did not want to make any compromises in this regard. TrojanTwo fulfilled our expectations and was furthermore more economic than other solutions we had been looking at. The 1600 x 1600 dpi resolution print was the best we had seen - even at an 18 m/minute printing speed. There is no doubt that TrojanTwo is value for money” says Mr. Régis Théophiles, owner of Etiquette Théophiles. Etiquette Théophiles expects to run their new digital label press 7 hours a day.

Etipresse Makes Sensible Investment

TrojanTwo is relevant to label converters who want to start exploiting all the advantages of digital printing without making a huge investment, but also label converters who already have more expensive digital solutions, such as Indigo or Xeikon, can benefit from TrojanTwo and the possibility to print high quality at low cost. Mr. Amarilio Botas, who owns Etipresse in Portugal, feels that Trojan-

Two is the right investment for him due to a number of things: “The development within digital printing takes place in a very rapid pace and today’s technology will be outdated in three to four years. As a consequence we do not wish to invest too heavily in just one machine and TrojanTwo offers really high print quality at a reasonable price.” He adds: “A number of our label designs where printed on the TrojanTwo before we bought the system and all of them came out just as we wanted them to. That made it quite easy to make the decision.”

Innovative Development Leads to High Quality Printing

Regarding the strong interest in TrojanTwo Mikkel Wichmann, CEO of Trojanlabel, says: “The demand for digital labels is obviously growing rapidly, but the market has not been within reach for all converters. TrojanTwo makes it possible for the Trojanlabel customers to get onboard without incurring huge capital investment – something the market desperately needs.” As for why Memjet was chosen as the print head supplier for TrojanTwo, he says: ”We found a highly successful way to integrate the Memjet single head into our machine, eliminating the prior problems with consistent high quality printing related to the single head technology. As a result TrojanTwo delivers an extremely high print quality which is not only limited to short runs.

In regards to the selection of material suited for TrojanTwo, he says: “We see a rapid development in the amount of different material of high quality being developed to suit the technology and the prices are continuing to fall. Many material suppliers therefore offer our customers high quality at low prices." He rounds of: “Every week we get new inquires and practically everyone who sees TrojanTwo in action ends up buying it. We are really excited about this success and expect at least 125 TrojanTwo orders this year.”
