ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA – September 8, 2017 – Printware, a leading supplier of prepress and digital solutions to the print industry, will debut the iJetColor Pro Light Industrial Envelope Printing Press to commercial and mailing providers during Print ’17 held at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois September 10-14 in Booth 2463.
The iJetColor Pro received the coveted Must See ‘Ems Award in the Imprinting, Mailing, Shipping and Fulfillment category. Must See ‘Ems highlight innovations from the industry’s top vendors that will both impact and revolutionize these growing market segments.
The iJetColor Pro is a light industrial inkjet envelope press that can print full color filled or unfilled envelopes of various sizes and shapes for volumes targeted at 1,750 to 7,120 variable images per hour.
The iJetColor Pro is the first light industrial class printer that uses a highly reliable vacuum conveyor system to deliver products for personalization, text and imaging utilizing the industry leading Memjet single page wide head that delivers 6 ips and 12 ips full color inkjet imaging. A flexible and easy to adjust imager position over a rugged and reliable conveyor provides maximum feed capability of 12” by 17” media with an 8.7” maximum imaging width and maximum product thickness of up to 1”.
The iJetColor Pro provides three unique capabilities - first in the world - for the sheet fed inkjet marketplace:
- A reliable, affordable, vacuum conveyor system for high speed (7,500/hr) imaging for print and addressing at a system price point under $60k.
- The only high speed light industrial printer that allows full bleed imaging with a first ever print gap for high speed full color sheet fed printing.
- A flexible feed throat and height adjustment designed for imaging on filled envelopes and a wide variety of paper and stocks.
“The iJetColor Pro was designed for the most demanding inkjet customers that need to produce not only the highest quality full color but in very high volume applications”, commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “Since the first shipments began in 2012, we have offered the iJetColor Press users improvements and enhancements that increase their productivity and profitability. Today, we have over 500 customers some that have printed more than 10 million prints on their iJetColor Press, and we see the ability to enable even higher volumes using inkjet technology married to an industry first reliable and rugged conveyor based feeding system.”
Designed for high volume print and mailing operations, this product maximizes speeds of the Memjet VersaPass™ printhead and surpasses all roller fed sheet printers in the marketplace by using vacuum belts. Printware’s experience and conversations with over 500 sheet fed installations under our Memjet powered iJetColor brand was the impetus for designing and launching this light industrial envelope printer. The iJetColor Pro is available for commercial shipments in Q4 of 2017.
The iJetColor Pro system incorporates color management tools and workflow developed by Xitron that are married to a comprehensive industrial operator touchscreen and full training, support and supplies from Printware, a leading equipment provider to the industry for over 30 years. The Brand Color Editing feature allows brand colors, defined as spot, to be specifically defined for CMYK reproduction. In addition, speed improvements have been made for variable data and addressing. Integrated workflows also drive optional Indicia and Mailing Permit imprinting that provides ultra-high speed imprinting applications.
Memjet technology was designed to deliver speed by bringing the fastest inkjet technology of its kind to the market. Using a completely re-envisioned printhead design along with a custom controller chip and software, each component was engineered to deliver printing speeds unheard of in the inkjet world.
iJetColor Press systems are offered with a comprehensive package that includes an easy to use workflow, expert color matching software built in for a wide variety of readily available inkjet stocks, variable data enabled tools, proven Harlequin RIP technology, professional installation, 24/7 support and a “no finger pointing” quality guarantee.
