Anytron – Bitek Technology, a manufacturer of digital color label printing system, recently announced the official launch of its new in-line digital press for label and flexible packaging, the any-JET II.
The new any-JET II, powered by Memjet inkjet printing technology, offers in-line finishing capabilities, 1600×1600 DPI high-resolution lamination and custom label shapes and sizes with laser die-cutting. It supports variable printing and cutting speed from 3m/m to 18m/m (9.8 to 59 ft/min) depending on the label design. It is claimed that users experience greater flexibility and can produce a broader range of applications in today’s continuously changing and fast-paced production environment.
The any-JET II is engineered for fast production speeds and high-quality images. This all-in-one machine is designed to have all functions such as over-laminate, laser die-cutting, matrix remove and slitting that are needed when producing labels. Additionally, any-JETII can be utilized on flexible packaging printing and laser scribing for easy opening, microwave steam release feature pouches.
One of the key developments in the system is any-Flow, an integrated workflow and RIP software allowing to control printer and laser die-cutter with integrated user interface. It extracts cutting lines from printing design when user loads design to the system and the cutting data automatically sends to laser die cutter to be ready for production. Furthermore, Auto job changeover is embedded for users to change their job automatically by reading a QR code that is printed from print engine.
Brian Kim, the sales manager of anytron (from Bitek Technology) said that everyone interested in making the shift to digital production was delighted with the any-JET II. “Not only will it enhance your production capacity, but it will also expand the flexibility of your application. The idea of an inline system is that the preparation time for production is cut with about 10% to 20%, which can shave off a lot of time on a normal working day,” he added.
This innovative solution eliminates waste and lead times for label orders, improves flexibility to support private branding and personalization strategies and supports highly variable applications with just-in-time delivery.
