INX International Ink Co. continues to make great strides helping integrators develop complete digital inkjet printing systems with the innovative and cost effective JetINX™ Printhead Drive and Ink Recirculation system. The latest evidence of its growing popularity is the mid-October introduction of LSINC Corporation’s Perivallo360m, the first in a series of high resolution, contour following decoration printers.
A world leader in digital printing technology and cutting-edge innovation, LSINC is based in Huntsville, Alabama, and only minutes from INX’s digital development facility. Collaboration between the two companies led to the creation of the Perivallo360m, which allows for direct-to-object UV digital printing onto cylindrical, conical and contoured substrates for a variety of branding and marketing opportunities. It is being positioned for markets such as wine and spirits, health and beauty, and specialty foods.
“One of the ways we ensure that what we’re going to build will be successful is we surround ourselves with really smart people who can help add to our company. In this case, we’ve partnered with INX International,” stated Alicia Ryan, CEO of LSINC Corporation. “Together, we’ve been able to create this portfolio of machines. INX International brings the ink expertise, as well as the fact that they have developed a phenomenal digital ink print engine. Our machines work because their ink gets put on the bottle. It’s a great partnership.”
“We’ve been doing business with them for almost two decades,” said Jim Lambert, Vice President and GM – Digital Division, of INX International Ink Co. “They have a passion for print design and, more importantly for us, they have a passion for customer support. Between what we offer with our print engine and JetINX components, and what LSINC does with the printer design, it really does offer the customer full service from beginning to end. They even help with the preparation so people understand how digital artwork differs from conventional in the printing process.”
The ability to extend the print engine to multiple color planes as the print head followed the contour of the media was a deciding factor in the choice of JetINX to power the Perivallo360m. Configurations have been offered with up to 12 color planes. The JetINX Printhead Drive and Ink Recirculation system is a cost efficient, industrial inkjet solution for the precise control of fluid temperatures and pressures, while driving multiple print heads.
“Digital continues to grow for this type of work because it offers more advantages than traditional screen or pad printing,” concluded Lambert. “JetINX and our digital systems integration capability gives brand owners what they need for a more targeted and cost efficient approach. Smart integrators like LSINC realize this.”
