True Label Inc., a narrow web converter based in Toledo, OH, USA, has acquired the first Jetrion 4000 UV inkjet system. Jetrion, which unveiled the press at Labelexpo Americas in 2006, is owned by EFI of Foster City, CA, USA.
The label converter, which also owns a Jetrion 3025 injet system, acquired the 4000 to produce full color, short run jobs, according to Bob Napierala, president. "The Jetrion 4000's combination of image quality, speed and low production costs will make it possible for us to produce millions of short run labels at great margins," says Napierala. "Historically we have turned down short run opportunities because they did not fit our capabilities.” True Label is a 12-year-old company specializing in pharmaceutical and chemical labeling.
The Jetrion 4000 Series features a full CMYK set of UV inks, with white and expanded gamut inks available soon; speeds over 100 fpm; and 4” (101 mm) and 8” (203 mm) standard print widths with custom widths available. The system is also integrated with the Fiery XF RIP.
