ColorSpan Announces High-Speed 12-Head Inkjet Printer

Press release from the issuing company

MacDermid ColorSpan, Inc., an innovator and leader in the wide-format color inkjet printer market, is setting a new industry standard for quality, speed and performance with the introduction of its DisplayMaker“ X–12 printer. Designed around twelve (12) state-of-the-art, nearly one-inch wide, high frequency printheads, the DisplayMaker X–12 can be configured with the broadest combination of multi-density and gamut-extending inks to achieve fastest print speeds, wider color gamut and better apparent resolution. The DisplayMaker X–12 gives its users unprecedented flexibility in meeting the output requirements of their customers. The printer can be configured with one or more 4-, 6-, 8- or 12-color ink sets to balance the need for speed (draft speed is in excess of 600 square feet per hour) and print quality (up to 1800 dpi apparent resolution). A newly designed heated forced air drying system has been integrated into the printer to afford the user unparalleled confidence in high-speed roll-to-roll unattended printing using a wide range of inkjet media. The DisplayMaker X–12 will be shown for the first time at SGIA show in St. Louis, MO, October 30 through November 2, 2002, with shipments to customers commencing in the December quarter. Rinnie DiCenzo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated, "The DisplayMaker X–12 represents a new milestone in performance leadership within the wide-format printing market. The increased output speed, ease of use and lower cost of production of these printers make them ideal not only for print-for-pay operations but also for anyone who wants an improvement in price, performance and profitability. No other company offers this combination of precision image quality, speed, and reliability at this value."
