INX Digital expanded its EVOLVE Advanced Digital Solutions portfolio with the introduction of the TP series at the recent FESPA Digital event in Munich, Germany. The TP160CB is the newest addition to the roster of highly specialized printing systems that are helping print service providers with improving productivity, quality and versatility.
The TP160CB offers a variety of options to transition to digital printing, and is one of the first printers in the marketplace to be equipped with new Xaar 1002 industrial printheads while being powered by the JetINX Printhead Drive and Ink Recirculation system.
INX Digital also showcased the NW140 UV digital narrow web press and previewed the new TRIANGLE brand RXV inks. Designed for use with Roland XR and XF series printers, these inks are currently in beta stage testing and will likely reach the market later this year. The new ESC and MED alternative ink sets, which included ESC being demonstrated on an Epson SureColor printer, attracted a good amount of attention in the booth.
“It was a great atmosphere this year at FESPA Digital. We generated a steady and consistent amount of booth traffic and there was plenty of high interest and discussion about our products,” said Jim Lambert, vice president and general manager of INX International’s Digital Division.
“Working on the combination of fluids and hardware allows us to deliver our inks quicker and more effectively,” he added. “Thanks to our R&D and manufacturing capabilities, we are one of the few manufacturers in the world that works on the combination of ink design, jetting requirements, hardware design and delivery of fluids to the substrate. Our collaboration with Xaar, a noted leader in printhead innovation for the industrial market, helps us stay at the forefront of ink technology solutions and development for the expanding industrial market.”
With EVOLVE Advanced Digital Solutions, INX has expanded the JetINX printhead drive and ink recirculation systems to encompass a wide range of single-pass and scanning inkjet applications. The NW140 press, with its best-in-class image quality and offering label converters, direct mail and package printers high speed printing at 80 feet per minute, provides integrated laser die-cutting with Xaar single-pass and printhead technology.
In addition, INX Digital introduced applications printed using Aqua 250 and launched the TP160-RR as the first TP series roll-to-roll printer for aqueous industrial applications. Aqua 250 is manufactured by Italy-based INX partner Engico, and it enables box makers, commercial printers and POS professionals to print and deliver Just-In-Time and 1:1 cardboard boxes, while reducing make-ready times and prepress costs.
