Anytron - Bitek Technology launches new in-line digital press

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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
