Reynders Etiketten To Integrate Jetrion’s Dual-Headed 3025 DOD Printing System
Issued by Jetrion prior the EFI acquisition
First European Installation with Read-and-Print Option Enables UV Inkjet Printing in Multiple Press Locations
IPEX, Birmingham, UK, April 4, 2006 — Jetrion LLC, a leading supplier of inkjet printers, inks and custom systems, today announced that Reynders Etiketten, one of Europe's leading manufacturers of self-adhesive labels, has purchased Jetrion's cutting edge 3025 UV Inkjet System with two DOD (drop on demand) printheads.
Jetrion's first installation of a read-and-print system in the European market, the 3025 UV Inkjet System will enable inkjet printing of bar codes and other types of variable data at multiple locations on the press, while running at standard production speeds. Using the Jetrion 3025's Read-and-Print capability, Reynders will be able to print barcodes or numbers in one location on the press, read that barcode or number further down the press, and print a second variable code or number in a different location. A range of new applications make this capability highly valued, especially with the 3025's use of UV-cured inks to print on virtually may substrate at press speeds.
Marc Reynders, Managing Director of Reynders Label Printing, said, “Our company has always been a leader in adopting new technology to provide our customers with the finest quality and efficiency in the production of their labels. UV inkjet is a technology that offers opportunities for more advanced applications in label printing. Jetrion is clearly an experienced leader in the field of inkjet printing on narrow web presses. They are the partner we've chosen to work with as we introduce important new capabilities to our operations with in-line UV inkjet printing.”
Jason Oliver, Managing Director, Europe for Jetrion, noted, “All of us at Jetrion are very excited to be working with the Reynders organization. They are in the vanguard of label production technology and are the perfect company to put the performance of the in-line Jetrion 3025 Inkjet DOD Printing System to the test in every conceivable inkjet production task. We look forward to a mutually productive relationship for many years ahead.”
Jetrion 3025 Printing System
Featuring breakthrough drop-on-demand (DOD) technology, the Jetrion 3025 delivers flexibility and variable print quality at a lower cost. The Jetrion 3025 inkjet printing system offers substantially more substrate printing capability than continuous inkjet (CIJ), thermal transfer or toner printing processes. The system is ideal for placement of durable images on high-gloss and film materials for production applications that require higher quality bar-coding, numbering and variable messaging on printed products. Co-developed with Graph-Tech AG of Switzerland, the Jetrion 3025 incorporates that company's proven MIC controller with image layout capabilities, simplifying production of variable codes and marks. The Jetrion 3025 provides the lowest running cost of available DOD marking printheads.
The Jetrion 3025 and other Jetrion Systems and inkjet products will be featured at the company's exhibit booth #5–G85 at IPEX 2006.
