The Impika Drop on Demand (DOD) print engines are capable of printing variable data in high resolution color on small and medium width substrates at high speeds, according to Jean-Marc Pasturel, the company’s director of business development.
GRE and Impika joined forces at IPEX 2006 in April by presenting the IPS C-9000 high resolution, full color DOD printing system in combination with converting equipment from GRE for the production of labels using UV curable inks. The IPS C-9000 prints text and graphics at 900 dpi over widths of up to 429mm (17"), Pasturel says. The combined product offering from the two companies includes a GRE unwind station, laminating, Digicut diecutter with digital stylus module, laser diecutting, and matrix/finished rewind. Additional converting options include sheet delivery, foil stamping, UV coating and curing, hologram deposition, RFID insertion and rotary diecutting with either fixed solid or flexible magnetic dies.
