At the recent WestPack 2013 in Anaheim, CA, USA, Allen Datagraph Systems Inc. (ADSI) introduced its new iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label System, a complete digital solution built to print and finish labels for label convertors and brand owners of all sizes. The system offers a significant increase in speed from ADSI’s original iTech AXXIS Digital Label System. The iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label System, designed and manufactured in the US, is comprised of both the iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label Printer, a high-resolution roll-fed CMYK print engine featuring LED toner technology, and the iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label Finisher that laminates, integrates die-less diecutting, and then strips, slits and rewinds to finished rolls of labels.
“We have been very successful selling the tabletop iTech AXXIS Digital Label System, but our customers have also expressed interest in a faster version. The iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label System is ADSI’s answer for our customers who appreciated the flexibility of the original iTech AXXIS Digital Label System, and the ability to manufacture – print and finish – labels in a complete, all digital workflow with greater productivity. Our new iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label System has faster printing and finishing,” comments Mark Vanover, ADSI’s VP, sales and marketing.
The new iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label Printer includes an LED toner printer manufactured by OKI which images consumer-quality labels with brilliant, durable, consistent color at 1200 dpi X 600 dpi, at speeds up to 30 feet per minute. The iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label Printer offers exceptional productivity. With a maximum width of 8.5", the printer has a wide degree of substrate flexibility that does not require top coating. For maximum flexibility, the printer is capable of being used standalone in a pre-diecut label workflow.
The other component, the iTech AXXIS HS Digital Label Finisher, is able to finish on-demand labels of any shape. About 25% faster than the standard iTech AXXIS Digital Label Finisher, it laminates, integrates die-less diecutting (any vector shape designed in Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw), strips, slits and rewinds to finished rolls of labels.
