Data-Mail Completes Second Install of MCS Eagle 8540 Inkjet Web Press
MCS has completed the second install of the MCS Eagle 8540D 34˝ monochrome inkjet press at Data-Mail in Windsor, Conn. Data-Mail installed its first MCS 8540S simplex machine more than three years ago and has invested in a second duplex system in its Windsor, Conn., high-speed converting department. The MCS Eagle 8540D has 4-8 ½˝ solid inkjet printheads, which allows for full two-up (8½x11˝) duplex letters on their high-speed web bindery equipment at speeds up to 500 fpm on uncoated stocks, and 666 fpm on coated stocks.
The MCS Eagle 8540D uses Kyocera 600 dpi piezo inkjet heads. The Eagle 8540D can be installed in-line with most bindery lines and printing presses. The 8540D can print over 60,000 duplex images per hour, or over 120,000 6x9˝ coated self-mailers per hour. MCS offers dye, pigment, and polymer pigment inks which makes the Eagle 8540 ideal for offset, coated and even aqueous coated paper stock up to 12pt.
Data-Mail has long been on the cutting edge of mail manufacturing inkjet technology. "We are always investing in technology to enhance value while decreasing cost for our customers" stated Scott Braunstein, senior VP of Operations. "We have invested heavily into the latest high-tech process color inkjet technology during the last eight years, and we find the MCS Eagle 8540 monochrome inkjet complements this strategy perfectly. There are many jobs that still make sense with our traditional printing presses and monochrome inkjet" Braunstein continued.
The MCS Eagle 8540 is offered in 4¼˝ and 8½˝ solid printheads and can be installed on almost all existing web equipment including traditional printing presses. First quarter of 2020, MCS is releasing a new inkjet web press, the MCS Hayabusa, which will offer piezo 600 dpi quality at an industry leading 1,000 fpm.
