Colordyne Partners with Memjet to Launch Production-Class Color Printing SystemSeptember 7, 2011
The CDT-1600 PC (Production Class) printer performs continuous web printing on pressure-sensitive labels, narrow web packaging, retail tags, professional documents, and pre-diecut labels at 32 inches per second (160 fpm). Its five printheads contain more than 350,000 nozzles that release 3.5 billion drops of ink per second. This one-of-a-kind technology from Memjet allows the CDT-1600 PC to print in four color (cyan, yellow, magenta, black) and optional spot color at 1,600x1,200-dpi resolution. The CDT-1600 PC is the first commercially available production-class solution powered by Memjet.
Colordyne’s Bench Top printers—the CDT-1600 C (continuous) and the CDT 1600 S (sheetfed)—are capable of printing full process color at throughput speeds up to 12 inches per second while delivering up to 1,600-dpi resolution at affordable costs. All three printers will be displayed by FASTechnology Group, a Colordyne authorized partner, at Graph Expo booth 5038.
“Colordyne Technologies offers high-quality color on-demand digital printers at an affordable price. We strive to offer low cost, high-speed color printers, and with Memjet technologies, it is now possible,” said Gary Falconbridge, president of Colordyne Technologies.
Colordyne’s Production Class printing system is designed for manufacturing floors and distribution centers, allowing customers to print what they want, when they want it. With a compact system footprint, the CDT-1600 PC requires minimal user intervention, on-site maintenance, and no expensive power systems.
“Memjet’s color printing technology is the first of its kind in the industry, making most pre-printed labels a thing of the past,” said Sean Marske, president of Memjet Labels. “No one in the labels and packaging industry can match the benefits of Memjet-powered printers such as Colordyne’s on low costs, high speeds and color on-demand capabilities.”
