Printware, the leading independent manufacturer of innovative polyester CtP solutions, announced a successful Graph Expo preview for the iJetPress.
“The iJetPress has been a tremendous hit with Printware customers and other attendees stopping by during Graph Expo to see what this new digital inkjet color press is all about,” commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “Our customers were able to quickly see how the iJetPress complements their print shop’s existing CtP system by adding a high performance, low cost digital inkjet press to further enable personalized short run color printing.”
iJetPress is a compact, table top, 4-color inkjet press powered by Memjet technology suitable for supporting production paper stocks as heavy as .02 inch/.5 mm on up to 8.5” by 17” substrate for product personalization of:
- Business Cards
- Direct Mail and Post Cards
- Sales Brochures and Flyers
- Invitations and Greeting Cards
The iJetPress is offered exclusively with a comprehensive package that includes the iJetColor RIP and Workflow, an expert color matching software solution and workflow based on industry leading Xitron Navigator Harlequin RIP technology, professional installation, 24/7 support and a no-finger pointing quality guarantee. Existing PlateStream CtP users can integrate the iJetPress using the Xitron Navigator GPS Workflow. Users will be able to control both the PlateStream CtP and iJetPress from the same user interface greatly reducing the need for additional prepress training.
The iJetPress brings new revenue opportunities to print shops, making it extremely affordable to produce 4-color jobs and capitalize on new mailing and fulfillment opportunities. “The iJetPress provides low cost, personalized printed images in print volume as low as one unit,” continued Murphy.
Complete Digital Color Printing Solution
The iJetPress is offered as a complete digital color printing solution and comes bundled with the iJetColor RIP and workflow - an industry leading, production quality solution based on the Xitron Navigator Harlequin RIP and Navigator GPS workflow, a standard output tray, iJetPress combo ink pack capable of printing thousands of 4-color envelopes, business cards or letterheads to mention a few.
Lowest Total Cost of Ownership
Printware’s PlateStream Elite platesetters have always taken advantage of Printware’s complete service and open architecture supply plans providing customers the lowest total cost of ownership of any comparable solution on the market. The iJetPress continues this tradition with many consumables and parts that are user changeable, further improving uptime for the shop. The performance of the iJetPress, as with the PlateStream CtP unit, provides industry leading results with low variable costs for print personalization. Initial customer installations demonstrate fast return on investment of less than one year.
Industry Leading Workflow Solutions
Printware CtP and digital color printing solutions are powered by the industry leading Xitron Navigator RIP and Navigator GPS workflow. This workflow features a wide selection of standard and optional tools that eliminate errors and increase productivity while meeting varied production requirements. Based on the Harlequin RIP core technology, Xitron Navigator workflow solutions are recognized worldwide as a leading workflow for commercial and in-plant printers. Printware has integrated a spot color matching application to meet critical printing job needs for the iJetPress.
