Printware (St. Paul, Minnesota) has unveiled its iJetColor Pro PXG, the second collaboration with HP and the newest version of its iJetColor Pro Series. It incorporates HP’s FI-1000 fixed imager print engine to deliver PageWide thermal inkjet technology that’s “faster, wider, more durable, and more economical.” The iJetColor Pro is a high-speed, light industrial envelope press that can print onto full-colour filled and unfilled envelopes of various sizes. With the capacity to print short-run, full bleed, variable-data jobs, the iJetColor Pro can produce cost-effective envelopes as well as eye-catching direct mail.
The iJetColor Pro PXG is also ideal for short-run, four-colour, personalized packaging. The HP FI-1000 fixed imager print engine delivers pigment-based ink that’s water safe and light safe, producing durable output suited for the packaging industry. With two sizes of automated feeders available, the Pro PXG can produce uncoated packaging of virtually any size – from boxes and bags to coffee sleeves, coasters and more, said Printware. The HP FI-1000 is incorporated into an industrial automated feeding table that allows for quick set-up and production of short-run jobs, making this system “more profitable than long-run flexographic operations or high-touch silk screening solutions.”
“The iJetColor family of products is the result of our commitment to our customers to constantly meet the most demanding inkjet print applications that need to produce not only the highest quality full-colour in very high-volume applications, but also to ensure the lowest total cost of ownership,” said Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “Since our first shipments began in 2013, our customers count on enhancements that increase their productivity and profitability. With this product launch, our customers now have a complete line of inkjet solutions that best meet their short-run personalization needs while generating maximum profits.”
