“The iJetColor Label Press adds new capabilities to in-house manufacturing and packaging operations and to print shops of any size,” commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “The addition of a label press to the iJetColor family of products was based on customer requests for an easy-to-use system with color matching and variable data capabilities at a cost that provided significant economic advantages to bring label packing applications in-house – especially shorter run more complex color work that is highly profitable”

Memjet technology was designed to deliver speed by bringing the fastest inkjet technology of its kind to the market. Using a completely re-envisioned printhead design along with a custom controller chip and software, each component was engineered to deliver printing speeds unheard of in the inkjet world.

The iJetColor Press provides low cost, personalized printed images in print volume as low as one unit,” commented Murphy.
