“A game changer for sure," says Lynda Murphy, production manager. ImageTek Labels, who over the last decade has built its niche market in durable label products, has a strong presence in the development and manufacture of industrial labels. The addition of the Jetrion expands its capabilities with the vision of entering into prime label markets where digital, short run labels are bridging the gaps in traditional printing methods.
The addition of the Jetrion 4900 digital printing system was a natural next step for ImageTek Labels. Combining both digital printing and finishing in one single system, the Jetrion will support the manufacture of durable labels that have kept ImageTek Labels at the top of the harsh environment label markets, while expanding its short run capabilities and lessening lead times; a win-win for ImageTek Labels and their current customers. Until recently, ImageTek Lables converted materials, often times using several steps to produce their custom finished products. Moving forward, the Jetrion 4900 will support the same quality label in the leanest way possible, making the entire process more cost effective for its customers while streamlining their short and medium run capabilities and giving label users high quality UV-cured, laser cut labels at competitive prices.
In late August, the company plans to launch a new, instant-quote website, where customers will be able to customize any label order, choosing from a long line of UL-approved, durable synthetic and paper materials.
