COASO, along with Memjet representatives, will debut this new breed of label press at the Shanghai World of Packaging Conference (SWOP), taking place Nov. 25-28 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) in Shanghai, China and the upcoming Labelexpo Asia event in Shanghai.
Released in September, DuraFlex is a modular single-pass print solution that combines Memjet’s signature features with new attributes that include enhanced durability, A4- and A3-plus widths in a four-color printhead, a high-speed data path and modules that control all printhead functions.
“Our iCueLabel press is an example of what an OEM can accomplish with DuraFlex technology,” said Frank Xu, GM of COASO. “In less than three months, we were able to develop a new breed of label press that is a viable performance alternative to more expensive toner or other inkjet-powered printers. Converters can use the iCueLabel Press to produce high-quality labels the market demands — including food-safe and high-security labels – in a fast, affordable way.”
The iCueLabel 420 features 1600 dpi print quality. Print speed is as fast as 46m/min in production mode and 27m/min in high-quality mode.
“Our goal with designing DuraFlex was to create a simple yet robust technology that could give OEM partners the resources to create printing solutions that are powerful but also affordable,” said Bent Serritslev, senior VP, business development, APAC at Memjet. “It is gratifying to see how COASO has used DuraFlex’s compact, modular design, category-leading speed, and 1600-dpi quality to develop this new label printer.”
