EPS Launches Advanced Object Printing Machine at Pack Expo 2017

Press release from the issuing company

EAST DORSET, VT – Engineered Printing Solutions (EPS), the leading manufacturer of custom industrial inkjet printers, is proud to launch the Roto-JET industrial inkjet printer, the latest advancement in cylindrical object printing, at Pack Expo 2017, booth #8168 (Las Vegas Convention Center - September 25-27, 2017).  

The Roto-JET is a multi-color, UV-LED, high-resolution printer, which offers state-of-the-art digital printing technology. It is designed specifically for decorating cylindrical objects – including those that are flat walled or tapered – and is therefore the ideal printer for companies producing promotional products, craft brewers, wineries and Ad Specialty companies looking to offer their customers a short run option at greater production rates.

With average speeds of 800 parts per hour (pph)*, the Roto-JET features a synchronized printing and curing operation which prints full CMYKWW, with optional primer and varnish printheads available. Easy to load and unload, this new system can accommodate either manual or automatic operation. In addition, the elliptical-style racetrack transport system and vertical design keeps the printer within a manageable footprint.  

The Roto-JET is built for continuous projection. Among its benefits is the fact that the machine provides four times the production capability for twice the cost of the nearest competitor’s machine. “We’ve developed the Roto-JET in response to customer demand,” comments Tim Scully, VP of Sales at EPS.  “Several of our long-standing customers approached us separately, each requesting a solution designed to triple the volumes they are able to produce on their single feed systems at a manageable price point”.  

Print reliability in the Roto-JET is assured since it uses the Xaar 1003 printheads with Xaar’s unique TF Technology (ink recirculation). Ink is recirculated within the printhead directly past the back of the nozzle during drop ejection at the highest flow rates in the industry. This ensures that the Xaar 1003 operates reliably even in the harshest industrial environments. 

“We are delighted to be launching the Roto-JET at this year’s Pack Expo show which has traditionally been one of our most productive shows”, comments Eric Henzie, Director of Marketing at EPS.  “This is a great opportunity to showcase our inkjet solutions alongside the major players in the packaging industry. The Roto-JET is attracting interest from a variety of market segments interested in its compact footprint, best-in-class industrial grade components and high throughput which set this machine apart in the eyes of our customers”. 

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Roto-JET during Pack Expo should visit the EPS booth #8168 to see it in action, at 10:30am & 2:00pm CST September 25 and 26, or on the final day (single demo session) at 10:30am, September 27.
