IPT Digital introduces digital label conversion system

September 16, 2013

The Memjet-powered JFlex870 drop-on-demand thermal inkjet system has four print heads printing CMYK with an optional fifth print head for spot color.

IPT digital, a new company and an offshoot Innovative Printing Technologies, has introduced the JFlex870 digital label conversion system, a retrofit unit designed to turn your existing press into a high-speed digital printing platform. Using Memjet inkjet technology, the drop-on-demand thermal inkjet system has four print heads printing CMYK with an optional fifth print head for spot color.

The JFlex870's print heads contains 70,400 print nozzles firing 3 billion dots per second/12.4 kHz, resulting in 160 feet per minute of 8.69 inch wide print with a 1600x1200 dpi resolution. Solid and built to the highest tolerance, the JFlex870 digital label conversion system is engineered and manufactured by RDP Marathon of Montreal, Canada. The JFlex870 package includes a high-powered computer with touch screen HMI for efficient print file management as well as advanced color management and RIP software allowing for rapid preparation of files and variable information.

"The JFlex870 acts as a slave to your current press or web control platform allowing easy installation and minimal operator training," explains Peter Kuschnitzky, president of IPT Digital. "With a wide range of suitable material readily available, labels can be finished using your existing varnish, laminating and diecutting equipment."

Optional on the JFLex870 is a web guide, corona treater, web cleaner and small roll unwind unit.
