The 2600 Series Mini Press is targeted at label converters and brand owners alike who are looking for an out-of-the-box roll-to-roll digital printing solution to handle the ever-growing consumer demand for short-run digital labels. The flexible positioning system allows the DPM to move up to 16 inches outward from the base for printing on a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Ease of use is enhanced by automatic printhead cleaning, an onboard job library, and easy access to all vital components. The system comes ready to run out-of-the-box within hours.
The Mini Press makes use of a single Memjet printhead capable of printing at 60 feet per min (18 m/min) at 1600 x 1600 dpi. What differentiates this single printhead platform from others in the industry is its self-predicative printhead maintenance, decreasing operator intervention, and increasing up-time.
A robust, dually-supported frame, with the capacity to handle 24 inches (600 mm) outside diameter rolls and a servo-driven web handling system allows customers to produce longer run lengths than they once thought possible on a press of this size.
“Leveraging Memjet technology makes a huge difference in being able to offer our customers the ability to produce the highest resolution labels on the market today,” Buckthorpe said.
The 2600 Series Mini Press also makes use of industry-standard Harlequin RIP and a 15-inch touch screen providing the operator with an easy-to-use workflow and user interface capable of handling variable data applications.
High-quality four-color printing on all materials with an absorbent surface (like most kinds of uncoated papers and cardboards) or materials that are pre-treated for aqueous inkjet printing. The flexibility of the overprinting system enables it to print on flat objects such as unfolded boxes or bags, thick objects like blister envelopes, and even folded boxes ready for shipment.
In regards to finishing, Colordyne has partnered with offline finishing solution providers to offer users flexible and affordable finishing solutions to meet their specific application needs.
