Released in September, DuraFlex is a modular single-pass print solution that combines Memjet’s signature features of speed, simplicity and affordability with new attributes that include enhanced durability, A4- and A3-plus widths in a four-color printhead, a high-speed data path and modules that control all printhead functions. Together, these features give OEMs like COASO the resources to create affordable presses with quality and speed previously not available in these types of solutions.
“Our iCueLabel press is an example of what an OEM can accomplish with DuraFlex technology,” says Frank Xu, general manager of COASO. “In less than three months, we were able to develop a new breed of label press that is a viable performance alternative to more expensive toner or other inkjet-powered printers. Converters can use the iCueLabel Press to produce high-quality labels the market demands — including food-safe and high-security labels — in a fast, affordable way.”
The iCueLabel 420 will create a new market for itself due to its 1600 dpi print quality and competitive pricing. Print speeds are as fast as 46 m/m in production mode and 27 m/m in high-quality mode.
“Our goal with designing DuraFlex was to create a simple yet robust technology that could give OEM partners the resources to create printing solutions that are powerful but also affordable,” says Bent Serritslev, senior vice president, business development, APAC at Memjet. “It is gratifying to see how COASO has used DuraFlex’s compact, modular design, category-leading speed, and 1600-dpi quality to develop this new label printer. We look forward to seeing the success of this partnership at SWOP and in months ahead.”
