The seven-color machine is the first commercially available industrial inkjet digital printing system in the 70×100 format —allowing the Colorado packaging printer to tap into new markets and increase profitability.
The Primefire 106 is designed for high production volumes, utilizing the Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106 platform for imaging direct to substrate. This provides packaging printers with new opportunities to expand their businesses.
The digital printing system offers seamless workflow integration and the highest quality of 1,200×1,200 dpi at initial production speeds of 2,500 sheets/hr., designed to achieve volumes of up to 1.5 million sheets/mo. The platform is modular, accommodating further speed increases and feature updates without having to replace the press.
“We see the Primefire as a machine that can serve all markets, not just pharma,” said VP and COO Steve Huppert. The ability to print 2-point type also allows us to service our customers that are concerned with counterfeiting.”
