Printware is promoting the environmental sustainability of its iJetColor Press, based on Memjet technology, during the National Print Owners Association Partners in Profit Showcase on February 28, 2014 at the Renaissance Ft. Lauderdale Planation Hotel. Printware will also exhibit at Graphics of the America 2014, February 27-March 1 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Booth #259 where it has been selected as one of only six Game Changer exhibitors recognized for producing essential, future-oriented solutions for the graphic arts industry by the Printing Association of Florida.
The iJetColor press is a high performance; low total cost of ownership, inkjet digital color press powered by Memjet technology. Two models of the iJetColor Press are available with one designed for envelope and direct mail, and another with features specifically for label and packaging applications. The iJetColor Workflow is an integral part of both iJetColor press systems.
The iJetColor Press stands out from toner-based devices as a true “earth friendly” system with:
- Water-based inks
- No particle emissions like those found in toner-based systems
- No odors or fumes from solvent or UV-cured inks
- Lower energy consumption with no heat drying
- Print anywhere for a smaller carbon footprint
- Complies with all global environmental standards including ROHS
“The iJetColor Press utilizes water-based aqueous inks and does not emit the particles found in toner-based systems nor the odors from solvent or UV-cured ink,” commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “The iJetColor Press is an ideal solution for printers looking for systems that are environmentally sustainable for their shops.”
The iJetColor Press was designed with sustainability in mind beginning with the use of aqueous inks. Aqueous ink systems also use significantly less energy than a toner-based printer. iJetColor inks do not need heat to cure or dry as do toner based systems.
The printheads of the iJetColor Press require no special disposal or permits and typically contain less than 0.5 milliliters of ink when removed from the printer. Energy consumption of the iJetColor Press can be as low as twenty-five percent of comparable toner-based systems.
Printware understands that environmental sustainability in printing is an extremely important topic and the issues, trends and legislation surrounding the industry can be difficult to understand, as information changes constantly.
The iJetColor Press was selected as one of only six products to be included in the inaugural Game Changers showcase at Graphics of the Americas 2014. The showcase highlights technology from exhibitors producing particularly essential, future-oriented solutions, according to the Printing Association of Florida. The iJetColor Press was also awarded “Best of Category” in the PRINT13 MUST SEE ‘EM competition in September 2013.
