This allows presses, web handling, or finishing systems and production lines to incorporate the benefits of full color inkjet printing while maintaining its original functionality. Benefits include faster turnaround times, on-demand production and affordable short runs. The 2800 Series AP–Retrofit offers lower equipment costs, wider width and higher print quality for label and tag production running under 150 fpm (45 meters).
The 2800 Series AP–Retrofit, powered by Memjet’s DuraFlex technology, delivers superior print quality through its precision drop architecture and 2x nozzle redundancy at 1600 by 1600 dpi resolution. The use of aqueous pigment inkjet inks offers enhanced durability including greater water fastness, light fastness and rub resistance while maintaining the qualities of water-based inkjet, like food and beverage safety. Plus, this solution is able to work with a wider variety of materials including coated and uncoated substrates.
Unit has a wider print width of 12.75 in. (324 millimeters) from a single A3+ printhead. Additionally, the 2800 Series AP–Retrofit is uniquely designed for quick, low-cost integration with minimal disruption to current business operations.
“The development of the 2800 Series AP–Retrofit was driven by printers looking to optimize existing finishing and web handling equipment with a cost-effective and compact solution,” said John Urban, Director of Engineering at Colordyne. “We also anticipated the need for a retrofit that could be easily integrated into production lines or print and apply solutions. With in-line full color inkjet printing, brands can produce unique product labels on-demand and integrate variable data capabilities.”
