W+D (Booth 3922) is premiering its new W+D BB700 S2 with TIprint 4dL, which prints on the front and back seal flap of a blank unfilled flat envelope before inserting materials into the envelope.
W+D’s new direct mail inserter is the fully servo driven modular W+D BB700 S2 equipped with print 1st DOD inkjet printing that allows an the highest quality printing of an unfilled flat envelope as well as printing of the front of the envelope and back seal flap in a single pass without turning the envelope. The BB700 S2 operates at speeds of up to 16,000 envelopes/hour.
Unique to its class of inserters the BB700 S2 prints a blank unfilled flat envelope before inserting materials into the envelope. Printing on a flat unfilled envelope provides high-speed printing at the highest and most consistent print quality. Quality is further enhanced because the variations (inserted paper, air entrapment, and sealing issues) that occur in the inserting process are not present during printing. Printing flat envelopes also enables the BB700S2 to print on the front and back side of the open seal flap in a single pass without having to turn the envelope or add additional ink-jet printing capabilities.
Offset competitive quality can be printed on standard 24lb white wove envelope stock with the BB700S2 inkjet printer. This is a function of the high-speed vacuum transport belt that moves the substrate through the machine and positions it as close to the ink-jet print heads as possible. The formulation of Hi-Def water base ink-jet inks produce a vivid and wide color gamut on standard envelope paper. Quality improves on papers optimized for ink-jet and exceed offset in many print categories.
The BB7002S uses an 8.66” width inkjet print head. Combined with Hi-Def water based ink-jet inks and yields the lowest cost per imaged unit for any current generation DOD ink-jet systems in its class.
