EFI unveils Jetrion press with inline laser cutting

September 28, 2011

The system combines five-color inkjet printing, with inline laser finishing for label converters.

The new EFI Jetrion 4900, the latest in the company’s generation UV digital inkjet press, was launched at Labelexpo Europe. The system combines five-color inkjet printing, with inline laser finishing for label converters. The press is available in Europe for €625,000, and in the USA for $875,000.

“EFI’s Jetrion 4900 is a robust industrial press that is ideal for label converters looking to transfer high cost, short and medium run jobs to digital systems, from print file straight through to finished roll,” said Sean Skelly, vice president and general manager of EFI Jetrion. “It produces top quality labels with cost savings that go straight to the bottom line, a must in today’s business environment where Lean Manufacturing and efficiency are required to compete.”

The finishing system features dual lasers from SEI Laser Converting in Italy, offering such capabilities as diecutting, slitting and backscoring on a wide range of substrates.

The first 4900 will be installed at Consolidated Products Inc., Knoxville, TN, USA. “We just quoted a job for one million labels with 25 different SKUs,” said Brian Rhoades, VP of operations for Consolidated Products. “How many setups will we do to complete the job from start to finish? One. EFI’s Jetrion 4900 means real savings, quality labels and peace of mind for our customers.
