Trojanlabel to launch TrojanTwo digital press

May 22, 2014

While the TrojanOne targeted end users, the new press will be geared toward label converters.

Trojanlabel has announced it will soon launch the TrojanTwo digital label press. The company first entered the full color label market with the introduction of the TrojanOne in March 2013. The system targeted the end user but was also sold to label converters that required digital flexibility.

The TrojanTwo is Trojanlabel's first attempt at offering the market an "affordable mini digital press, which has the characteristics of the larger and more expensive systems," the company says. At speeds up to 18 m/min and 1600 x 1600 dpi resolution, the new press will be able to run larger volumes and maintain high print quality. "The system will simply self-predict when maintenance is needed and with a manual cleaning station accessing the printhead without cutting the web, the TrojanTwo will be the most sophisticated affordable Memjet based product in the market designed for the converters," says Mikkel Wichmann, CEO for Trojanlabel. "We expect the system to sell at 35.000,00 USD for a complete installed unit, and will be released during the summer."

Adds Wichmann, “We witnessed a very strong pull from small to medium sized label converters based on the TrojanOne due to affordable pricing; however our product was designed for the manufacturers and brand owners in order to run their label production in-house. The product was not designed for heavier volumes and thus we were reluctant to sell it to label converters and printing houses. However this is completely changing with the introduction of the TrojanTwo. During the last few months we have seen a strong expansion of materials developed for Memjet technology and the introduction of the TrojanTwo could not come at a better timing. We are witnessing an overwhelmingly degree of interest for the TrojanTwo and the future looks prosperous for Trojanlabel and our global partners."
