Jetrion Introduces Industry's First Low-VOC Solvent Inks For CIJ Printers
Press release from the issuing company
ANN ARBOR, MI - September 11, 2005 - Jetrion LLC, a leading supplier of inkjet printers, inks and custom systems, has introduced the industry's first low-VOC solvent inks for continuous inkjet printers, enabling commercial printers to significantly reduce VOC levels in bindery and pressroom environments.
In actual pre-launch runs at production sites around the country, Jetrion's low-VOC inks ran at top bindery speeds in Domino and VideoJet CIJ printers, delivering trouble-free performance and quality that equaled or surpassed the results of MEK-based inks.
With substantially lower ambient VOC levels in their plants, companies using Jetrion's low-VOC inks in their BitJet, JetArray, PrintPro, and BX printers immediately gain the ability to expand production operations within their facilities and still remain within stringent VOC emissions limits. Developed to provide high reliability and performance, Jetrion's low-VOC inks for continuous inkjet printers are positioned at a price point typically lower than printer OEMs.
Dr. Ken Stack, president of Jetrion, points out, "Jetrion's low-VOC inks remove a major obstacle to growth faced by many commercial printers. The inks significantly cut VOC levels in binderies and pressrooms, and open opportunities to expand production capacity within a plant facility without exceeding VOC level mandates. For operations now pressing against their VOC limit, Jetrion's low-VOC inks offer an immediate solution for their problem."
During Print 05, Jetrion is demonstrating its new low-VOC inks running at full operational bindery speeds, printing on glossy stocks typically used in magazine and catalog production.
Jetrion's low-VOC inks are available now. Printers and mailers interesting in testing the low-VOC inks can call Dean Haertel at 734-622-6268 to request an ink trial.
