A new digital inkjet press made its debut at Labelexpo, introduced to the market by CSAT. The ITS600 press is a four-color inkjet machine using Kyocera print heads and UV curing using LED lamps, which utilize lower power and produce less heat.
According to Natalie Gilbert, managing director of CSAT America, the press can operate at speeds of 130 fpm (40 m/m) using four colors. The roll-to-roll press has a web width ranging from 4” to 8”.
The ITS600 can run offline or inline, and has a price tag of $350,000. It also features web retracting, causing the stopped web not to lose print on material when restarted.
