Matan Digital Printers has launched its newest printer, the Barak iQ. It will be unveiled at the FESPA Digital Europe 2011 show on May 24-27, in Hamburg, Hall A2, Stand A34.
The Barak iQ is a new SWF printer in Matan's product portfolio, available together with the successful Barak which was originally introduced at FESPA 2007 and Barak HS introduced at last Drupa.
The Barak iQ maximizes efficiency in high quality printing thus sets new standards in terms of print quality, productivity and usability.
Matan Digital Printers have developed a technology – Parallel Drop Size printing. The patent-pending PDS smart drop control technology enables the printing of both 20 and 40 pico-liter drops in the same pass, thus enhancing the print quality without compromising print speed or increasing ink consumption. Based on innovative SW algorithms and set of new hardware elements such as a linear encoder and real-time ink temperature control, the PDS ensure precise droplets and addressability required for high quality POP applications.
New Front End software features such as ‘Multi-file prints’ in multi-roll application and on the fly ‘Scale up’, saves valuable RIP time and maximizes the printer's productivity. The Barak iQ also allows color changes with ‘Last-minute color correction’ enabling matching between the client's proof and the printed job.
The New Mobile Management application is a tool for print shop managers and owners, keeping them up-to-date with the printer’s production status – anywhere, any time, on their mobile devices such as an iPhone or iPad. This mobile application provides real time information including the current printing status, expected finishing time, job previews and more, while they are away from the printer for example at customer’s meetings.
“Expanding Barak's family of printers with the Barak iQ with its new POP print quality, new features and mobile management control, will better serve the market,” said Hanan Yosefi, President and CEO of Matan Digital Printers. “The world-wide proven capabilities of the Barak, together with our innovative PDS technology enable better productivity and cost of ownership, thus assist our customers to widen their markets and applications with an even faster ROI.”
