Founder Electronics, China has launched the EagleJet C4200 digital printer, a single-pass narrow web inkjet system featuring Xaar 1001 greyscale printheads.
A full-colour UV printer, the EagleJet C4200 has been developed for on-demand commercial print markets in China. Production flexibility enables duplex mono and two-colour printing simultaneously, and duplex four-colour printing with a tandem configuration. The precision imaging capability of the industrial-strength Xaar 1001 printhead produces amazing print results (1080dpi apparent resolution) across the 420mm paper web width at speeds of 25 metres per minute.
The EagleJet C4200 is the latest inkjet printer developed by Founder Electronics. It follows the EagleJet H300 and EagleJet L1000 inkjet label printers launched at Drupa 2008 and already in commercial production at sites throughout China. The company continues to invest heavily in inkjet intellectual property and currently holds 26 software copyrights and hundreds of patents.
“A great deal of research and development has gone into making the EagleJet C4200 highly cost-effective and extremely easy to use compared with competitive systems worldwide,” says Liu Xiaokun, president of Founder Electronics. “It meets the market’s growing need for an affordable, high-quality production system that can produce a wide range of short to medium print products very quickly. Xaar printhead technology is a key element of the design to ensure consistent and reliable performance.”
“Founder’s choice of Xaar 1001 technology is a strong endorsement of its impressive capabilities for single-pass print applications. This printhead is having a major impact on the industry and quickly becoming the printhead of choice for new industrial print, label and wide-format print applications,” comments Phil Eaves, Sales & Marketing Director, Xaar.
