Memjet: Bringing disruptive change to packaging and labeling?

Memjet may be a new name to many of our readers.  The company was founded in 2002 and designs and manufactures low-cost high quality inkjet printheads, print controllers and inks designed for use in printers for packaging and mailing applications.  Although OEMs have only had product components for 60 days, Memjet has been busy—five shows in the last six months in North America and Europe.  Read more about this potentially disruptive technology.


Our mission is to provide cogent commentary and analysis about trends, technologies, operations, and events in all the markets that comprise today’s printing industry. Support our mission and read articles like this with a Premium Membership.

Can you give us any economics...fixed investment, variable costs, mileage anticipation, etc.


By Cary Sherburne on Nov 01, 2010

Hoping to speak to a couple of the OEMs later this week after PACK EXPO. Memjet didn't want to comment on pricing. I am hoping the two I speak with (one sheetfed and one rollfed) will provide more of that type of detail.

To be vialble in label markets UV is a must. Is this a UV cured product? Likewise Clint did ask the key question.


By Cary Sherburne on Nov 02, 2010

Ray, this is not UV ... the company indicates that other ink forumulations are in process but would not give more detail than that. As for Clint's question, as I indicated, answers will need to come from OEMs who are actually assembling and selling the powered by memjet printers. We will be following up with them after the show ends, which is when they have agreed to talk to us.
