EFI today was the first to introduce a digital inkjet label printing system with full LED UV curing technology for printing on flexible packaging materials. EFI’s Jetrion 4830LED UV Inkjet System and a newly-developed, flexible ink set allows printing on unsupported and heat sensitive materials, including shrink sleeve, opening up new opportunities for label converters in the flexible packaging market. Current and future Jetrion 4830 users can fully upgrade their presses to utilize the flexible ink set by retrofitting their systems with the new LED lamp technology.
The low heat and targeted wavelength benefits of LEDs allow full UV ink curing on heat sensitive and other flexible packaging materials that were previously unsupported with traditional UV-curing methods. Unlike other digital printing systems, there is also no need to pre-coat or pattern-coat flexible substrates when using the new 4830LED system.
The Jetrion 4830LED uses a new flexible ink set that produces durable, shrinkable and flexible, and peel-resistant images.
The Jetrion 4830LED is a full color digital label press that handles web widths of up to 9” (229mm) and prints up to 8.3” (210 mm) wide. With its grayscale printing capability and speeds of up to 120 fpm (37 mpm), the Jetrion 4830LED is ideal for meeting the most demanding labeling and flexible packaging production and image quality requirements.
