Based on the high specification KM1800i printhead from Konica Minolta, the new ColourPrint HiQ range offers a native resolution of 600 dpi, and by utilizing asymmetric screening technology can achieve over 1000 dpi apparent resolution, making the most of the small 3.5pl drops.
Due to the printhead technology, speeds of up to 200 m/m are achievable, making them ideally suited to add digital functionality to analog printing or processing equipment. The new modules are available in a range of print widths from 75mm to 520mm, allowing customers to choose the product that best fits their process and their budget.
IIJ has over 200 print engines in the field across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa, a record built on the reliability, quality and economy of its equipment. A number of ColourPrint HiQ units have already been sold and are due for installation in sites across the world in October and November 2017.
Fast-expanding IIJ opened a new office in Golden, CO, USA, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains earlier this year following the appointment of Graham VIcek as president of its US operations and is ramping up its global operations.
“We’ve had an incredible response at both shows," says John Corrall, managing director of IIJ. "Our teams were rushed off their feet and have many serious enquiries that will turn into sales. People are looking for inkjet solutions for their products and not just labels, but direct-to-product printing, as well. Our advanced, bespoke systems are real game-changers. In addition, we also had three enquiries for wallpaper machines on the first day alone.”
