Monotech Systems has launched its newly developed full-color digital label press, JETSCI ColorAqua Hybrid, at Pamex 2020 Mumbai, which is scheduled from 6 to 9 January. JETSCI ColorAqua Hybrid is powered by Memjet water-based pigment ink technology, which prints up to 45 meters a minute at a resolution of 1600 dpi.
The press enables label printers to adopt digital workflow in label printing at entry-level costs with heavy loaded features, including high-definition CMYK full-color printing, micro text, variable data and security printing. The system can print on most of the general label stocks (coated or uncoated) without primers and many films substrates by applying primers.
Monotech Systems becomes Memjet’s first DuraFlex OEM partner in India
San Diego, California based Memjet announced its tie-up with Monotech Systems, simultaneously on the first day of the Pamex exhibition in Mumbai. Monotech Systems, a leading developer of digital printing solutions headquartered in Chennai, in South India, and with one of its key development sites in the Delhi/NCR in North India, has used Memjet’s DuraFlex technology to create the Jetsci ColorAqua hybrid label printing press. This printing solution gives printers in India an economical way to produce high-quality labels and expand their product offerings.
For more than 20 years, Monotech Systems has been innovating and providing technology solutions to the Indian graphic arts, label and packaging industries. The latest example of this ability to integrate inkjet technology for innovation is the Jetsci ColorAqua hybrid label printing press. This competitively priced hybrid press enables printers to meet the demands of modern label production. In addition to its economical cost, the printer produces 1600 x 1600 dpi and runs at speeds of up to 45 meters a minute. Together, these features enable label printers to expand into digital printing and offer services like CMYK full-color printing, microtext, variable data and security printing.
Memjet’s DuraFlex aqueous pigments are versatile and light-fast
The Jetsci ColorAqua uses Memjet’s DuraFlex’s aqueous pigment inks that are light-fast, water durable and scratch-resistant. The hybrid press can print on most general coated and uncoated label stock materials without primers and can also print on many films and substrates by applying primers.
“DuraFlex technology has the features and functionality we needed to rapidly develop our latest printer,” said TP Jain, managing director, Monotech Systems Limited. “DuraFlex’s modularity, ease of integration, small footprint, and affordable cost ensured we could quickly develop the ColorAqua, while the high print quality, speeds and productivity of DuraFlex will make the printer — and our customers — successful. We are very pleased to launch ColorAqua with Memjet DuraFlex technology and to provide customers with an entry-level digital printer that can scale up very quickly.”
A successful partnership
Released last September, Memjet’s DuraFlex technology is being adopted by OEM partners around the world to power a new breed of printing solutions that are powerful, yet affordable. “Working with a professional company such as Monotech has been a pleasure, and with their leadership in the Indian market for inkjet solutions, we could not have found a better partner to bring our pigmented inkjet technology to the market. We have great expectations for the Indian printing industry, not just limited to labels, and look forward to a long relationship with Monotech,” said Bent Serritslev, senior vice president — Business Development, APAC at Memjet.
