Printware to Show the iJetPress, Powered by Memjet at GRAPH EXPOOctober 2, 2012
ST. PAUL, MN—October 2, 2012—Printware, the leading independent manufacturer of innovative polyester CtP solutions, announces the preview of its iJetPress, a high-performance, low total cost of ownership, inkjet digital color press powered by Memjet technology. The iJetPress will be on display in Printware booth #4725 during GRAPH EXPO, October 7-10 in Chicago.
“The iJetPress complements any print shop’s existing CtP system by adding a high-performance, low cost digital inkjet press to further enable personalized short-run color printing,” commented Tim Murphy, president of Printware. “The iJetPress, along with its iJetColor color matching software, makes short-run digital color a profitable commercial reality.”
iJetPress is a compact, table top, four-color inkjet press powered by Memjet technology suitable for supporting production paper stocks as heavy as .02˝/.5 mm on up to 8.5˝ by 17˝ substrate for product personalization of:
- Business Cards
- Direct Mail and Postcards
- Sales Brochures and Flyers
- Invitations and Greeting Cards
The iJetPress is offered exclusively with a comprehensive package that includes an expert color matching software solution and workflow, industry leading Harlequin RIP technology professional installation, 24/7 support and a no-finger pointing quality guarantee. Existing Printware CtP users can integrate the iJetPress using the Xitron Navigator GPS Workflow. This means users will be able to control both the PlateStream CtP and iJetPress from the same user interface greatly reducing the need for additional prepress training.
“Printware PlateStream users have been operating their traditional CtP to produce high quality output for years and, in most cases, to provide economical wholesale print solutions,” continued Murphy. “The iJetPress brings new revenue opportunities to these shops, making it extremely affordable to produce four-color jobs and to also capitalize on new mailing and fulfillment opportunities. The iJetPress provides low cost, personalized printed images in print volume as low as one unit.”
The iJetPress is a complete digital color printing solution and comes bundled with the iJetColor RIP and workflow—a production quality solution based on the Xitron Navigator Harlequin RIP and Navigator GPS workflow, a standard output tray and an iJetPress combo ink pack capable of printing thousands of four-color envelopes, business cards or letterheads to mention a few.
Lowest Total Cost of Ownership
Printware’s PlateStream Elite platesetters have always taken advantage of Printware’s complete service and open architecture supply plans providing customers the lowest total cost of ownership of any comparable solution on the market. The iJetPress continues this tradition with many consumables and parts that are user changeable, further improving uptime for the shop. The performance of the iJetPress, as with the PlateStream CtP unit, provides industry leading results with low variable costs for print personalization. Initial customer installations demonstrate fast return on investment of less than one year.
