“Memjet set out to develop an additional inkjet technology that would bring quality, speed and affordability to high-volume markets,” said Eric Owen, GM of commercial printing at Memjet. “To be successful, this technology also needed to keep pace with the rapid rate of change happening in the industry. The result of this effort is DuraLink. By bringing together a long-life printhead, durable pigment ink, 100 inches (2.5 meter) maximum print width and a range of versatile modules, DuraLink enables the rapid, cost-effective development of next-generation solutions for commercial, packaging and industrial printing markets.”
At the heart of DuraLink is a new long-life printhead. Unlike most printheads on the market today, DuraLink integrates redundancy at the nozzle level. DuraLink has 5x nozzle redundancy across 70,400 nozzles. With five nozzles printing each pixel column, if one jet goes out, it will go virtually unnoticed in the printed image.
DuraLink’s pigment-based printing platform allows providers to achieve the durability level needed for various applications in commercial printing, packaging printing and industrial printing.
Memjet’s original technology platform, VersaPass, is an aqueous dye-based, single-pass digital print system that enables on-demand printing in a variety of markets, including desktop labeling, mailing and addressing, wide format and commercial press.
