Colordyne Technologies has introduced the 2600 Series Mini Press as part of the new Commercial Class line of products to bridge the gap between Colordyne’s 1600 Series Industrial Class products and the 3600 Series Production Class family of products; thus creating the best-in-class portfolio of digital color printing equipment powered by Memjet technology, according to the company.
“Colordyne’s position as the leading provider of Memjet technology continues to strengthen with the addition of the 2600 Series Mini Press,” says Taylor Buckthorpe, Colordyne director of marketing. “We now offer three distinct product classes that are envisioned to provide users with a fitted solution for their digital color printing needs.”
The 2600 Series Mini Press is targeted for label converters and brand owners alike who are looking for an out-of-the-box roll-to-roll digital printing solution to handle the ever-growing consumer demand for short run digital labels.
The Mini Press makes use of a single Memjet printhead capable of printing at 60 feet per min (18 m/min) at 1600 x 1600 dpi. What differentiates this single printhead platform from others in the industry is its self-predicative printhead maintenance, decreasing operator intervention and increasing up-time.
A robust, dually-supported frame, with the capacity to handle 24 inch (600 mm) outside diameter rolls and a servo driven web handling system is designed to allow customers to produce longer run lengths than they once thought possible on a press of this size.
“Leveraging Memjet technology makes a huge difference in being able to offer our customers the ability to produce the highest resolution labels on the market today,” Buckthorpe says.
The 2600 Series Mini Press also makes use of industry-standard Harlequin RIP and 15 inch touch screen designed to provide the operator with an easy-to-use workflow and user interface capable of handling variable data applications.
In regards to finishing, Colordyne has partnered with offline finishing solution providers to offer users flexible and affordable finishing solutions to meet their specific application needs.
