Printware introduces three next generation iJetColor Presses at PRINTING United. These include the iJetColor 1175 Pro with a new higher speed feeder system; the new iJetColor 1175 providing a more affordable first-of–its-kind benchtop envelope system; plus the new high-speed iJetColor 1275 Pro using Memjet’s new DuraFlex® printhead technology.
The iJetColor 1175 and 1175 Pro products include Printware’s expanding collaboration with HP® and
builds on the growing success of the wider iJetColor family of envelope and packaging presses. These new products incorporate HP®’s Page Wide Thermal inkjet technology that is faster, longer running, and more economical for envelope and packaging solutions. The new iJetColor 1275 Pro will represent our fastest inkjet envelope press developed in collaboration with our Memjet® partners using the new DuraFlex® printhead technology. All three of these inkjet envelope presses use the latest generation of water-safe pigment-based inks that provide wider range of printing applications for uncoated and coated materials.
Tim Murphy, President of Printware, said “our new line of iJetColor presses are transformational as we integrate the best-in-class, next-generation, long-life printheads and inks to meet our customer’s needs.
These systems provide press-like speeds with full-color print-on-demand capabilities and each delivers the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership. In addition, these three high-volume inkjet envelope presses will provide our customers the best options to meet their growing envelope and packaging personalization needs while generating maximum profits.”
Murphy also added, “The iJetColor 1175 Pro was commercially launched in 2020 and targeted to high-volume print, packaging, and direct mailing operations. By incorporating HP® water-safe ink and our rugged high-speed feeder it has proven its versatility and can generate throughput of up to 10,000 envelopes/hr. The iJetColor 1175 Pro was the first light industrial press designed to print on difficult to feed envelopes using our Printware’s proprietary vacuum belt and feeding system. Our new 2023 model features improved feed and output handling for higher volumes, more vivid color profiles, and a new comprehensive 5-year service bundle.“
The iJetColor 1175 bench top system, like our iJetColor 1175 Pro model, incorporates the highly reliable and long-lasting HP® thermal inkjet printhead and will deliver print widths up to 11.75 inches and will print full-bleed landscape orientation on #10 envelopes. The feeding and alignment system with its accurate and reliable feeder is far more reliable to traditional roller fed systems and provides high-speed output (4,000-6,000+ envelopes/hr). The iJectColor 1175 couples great print quality (1200 dpi) and speed (12 ips) in a reliable and easy-to use inkjet system priced under $50,000. Printware will also offer an innovative 5-year comprehensive support plan that has introduced the Ink-Onlysm consumable plan that makes this system economically superior to any other product in the category.
The new iJetColor 1275 Pro, integrating Memjet’s new Duraflex® technology into Printware’s Pro line of products features robust feeding and accurate alignment using Printware’s proprietary vacuum conveyor that will allow for the highest resolution single page wide print quality coupled with press-like speeds of 15,000+ per hour using #10 envelopes and imaging at 30 ips. The newly introduced Duraflex® print heads provides long-life operation allowing for “tens of millions” of impressions coupled with high quality 1600 dpi output and pigment-based inks that will image on a variety of uncoated materials and a wide range of coated stocks. This system, priced under $100k, transforms the industrial press market with a targeted solution for envelope printing and mail operations. The iJetColor1275 Pro previewed at PRINTING United and will be commercially available in January of 2023.
Printware will also launch a new program of support for its iJetColorNXT and iJetColor classic systems based on Memjet® VersaPass® technology that includes multiyear support programs and an innovative “Pre-Owned Certified” Program and a “Trade-In & Trade-Up” program. Printware’s commitment to its long-time customers is unrivaled with decades of legacy equipment still in use under continual support and service programs.
Designed for high-volume print and mailing operations the iJetColor 1175 Pro, iJetColor 1175, iJetColor 1275 Pro, iJetColor PxG Pro, iJetColorNXT and the original iJetColor systems all come in complete bundles that provided the industry’s lowest variable costs especially compared to xerographic based solutions. As a result of our commitment to inkjet with our initial iJetColor product launched almost 10 years ago, there are now thousands of users running millions of envelopes every day.
All iJetColor systems come with the latest Harlequin® based workflows and DFEs (digital front ends) that use custom color management tools optimized for each print head technology, including an industry leading ColorBoost® technology to optimize color brightness at higher production speeds. Specialized workflows developed by its partner, Xitron, are built into easy-to-use operator touchscreens all delivered with Printware’ installation, training and support on system supplied CPUs. Brand Color Editing feature allows brand colors, PMS colors, or Spot colors to be specifically defined for CMYK reproduction. In addition, new variable data and addressing solutions include Indicia and Mailing Permit imprinting that provides ultra-high-speed output for mailing operations.
iJetColor Press systems are offered with a comprehensive package including the Advanced Inkjet Expert Training Program, professional installation, 24/7 support, and a “no finger pointing” quality guarantee. We always supply automated feeding and output handling as part of our solution including product tables. Lowest Total Cost of Ownership – the Inkjet Advantage.
