Memjet Launches High-Speed Color On-Demand Printing Technologies
Memjet, a global leader in color printing technologies that provide remarkable speeds and affordability, will launch its color on-demand printing technology for the labels and packaging markets at PACK EXPO International 2010 (Oct. 31-Nov. 3, booth 3866).
Memjet represents an entirely new category of technology that brings cost-effective, on-demand color printing to the manufacturing floor.
“We believe that Memjet technology is disruptive and will have a dramatic impact on how color printing is used in packaging activities,” said Sean Marske, president of Memjet Labels.
“The technology gives you the freedom to print exactly what you want, when you want it and where you want it, making near-line color label printing possible for ‘just-in-time’ and other manufacturing operations. This reduces waste and accelerates the workflow process. It also enables brand owners and manufacturers to move their label, tag, ticket, card and folding-carton printing out of a centralized print facility and directly onto their factory or warehouse floors,” Marske added.
This capability for high-quality, cost-effective, on-demand color speed makes possible a decentralized color-printing model, which can shorten the supply chain, reduce over-buying, and simplify labeling and versioning activities.
A Memjet-powered printer can provide high-speed, variable-data, color printing for localized on-demand label runs and many other trans-promotional marketing activities. Printers that are powered by Memjet can produce a color label or impression in seconds, and a full roll or stack of labels or impressions in minutes.
Memjet provides the core technology that allows innovative Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners to deliver new value to their target markets with fast and affordable color printers. These printers are “powered by Memjet.”
Memjet technology has already been incorporated into several commercially available labels, packaging and addressing products, including the following:
• Astro Machine Corp: M1 and M2
• MainStream LLC: The 12 Pacc
• OWN-X Industrial (Europe): SpeedStar 3000
