Jetrion LLC launched a new digital UV inkjet press at Labelexpo this week. The new Jetrion 4000 Series Inkjet System delivers full-color labels in production volumes with quality comparable to flexography, and production costs significantly lower than current digital color presses.
Developed for short- and medium-length narrow web production runs, as well as variable data imaging, the Jetrion 4000 series of digital inkjet color presses gives label converters all the advantages of UV inks coupled with the immediate and low-cost changeover of digital printing.
“The Jetrion 4000 makes it far more cost-effective for label printers and their customers to efficiently handle label jobs from small test quantities to full production runs,” Dr. Ken Stack, president of Jetrion, noted. “It’s another important landmark in our commitment to introduce new inkjet technologies and products that advance productivity and quality in digital printing.”
Because the only consumable required is the UV ink developed and manufactured by Jetrion, usage costs of the Jetrion 4000 are significantly lower than those of other types of digital color printing. The press utilizes advanced UV inkjet hardware and Jetrion’s new UV4000 set of CMYK inks to print full-color labels at fast digital speeds on an ever-increasing range of papers, films, foils and small caliper tag stocks.
The first Jetrion 4000 has already been installed in a production facility in the U.S.
