Delphax Technologies to Showcase Memjet-Powered elan 500 Inkjet Printer at drupa
Maximum sheet size is 18x25.2˝; minimum sheet size is 8x8˝. The system prints on a wide range of substrates, from 60 to 350 gsm. Patent-pending in-line primer capability is an option for enhancing substrate compatibility. The system also offers up to two spot colors. Industry certified Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) is offered for security and direct mail printing and other personalized applications.
elan is Delphax’s response to a growing customer demand for more efficient, versatile and affordable color printing equipment, and it promises to be ideal for commercial print-on-demand challenges in direct mail, transpromotional, billing, statements and book or manual publishing. Its variable data and MICR capability are also expected to make elan attractive to Delphax’s established security printing market.
Customer beta testing is scheduled to begin later this year.
A pioneer in digital print production, Delphax has captured the largest worldwide market share in check-printing applications, developing a highly regarded global customer-service and support organization in the process.
“We are positioning elan to have a much broader market appeal than we could ask from our existing monochrome products,” Schilling said. “It represents an entirely new category of digital print technology and offers a combination of price and performance that is unmatched today and long awaited by the market.”
