After successfully introducing several new technological platforms a year ago at Print ’09, INX International Ink Co. and INX Digital International Co. (booth #2512) will advance its efforts to another level this year at Graph Expo. The line of EVOLVE Advanced Digital Solutions will be joined by new inks, equipment and systems, in addition to educational seminars all four days of the show at McCormick Place.
The CP100 UV digital can printer is the newest solution for two-piece can printing and cylindrical packaging, using UV LED advanced digital technology and XAAR patented Through-Flow Technology. Designed for short-run cylindrical printing, the CP100 produces brilliantly printed aluminum cans or water bottles in minutes. The cost effectiveness of this printer makes it an interesting consideration for any printer looking to create specialized packaging and a new revenue stream for their business.
In addition to the CP100, another new product consideration for commercial and package printers is the MD1000 UV flatbed printer. It quickly and inexpensively delivers real-metal sample proofs in minutes for the short-run production of decorative tins, general line containers and aerosols. Not only available to metal decorators, the MD1000 offers quality over 1200 dpi at 150-220 feet per hour on a wide variety of rigid and flexible media including plastic, corrugate and carton.
Other unique EVOLVE line products include the MD660 UV digital flatbed printer and the NW100 UV narrow web printer. The brand also features solvent, UV-LED-curable, aqueous and thermal and oil piezo inks for printing on vinyl, paper, corrugated, plastic, carpet, fabric, glass, metal and other exotic substrates.
Learning how digital products can help any commercial printer is the driving force behind a series of seminars INX will offer daily as part of its G7 Lab. Company engineers will provide valuable insight with various presentations to include LED lamp technology, ink systems and Xaar™ print heads for integration, and ink development.
