Thinking of getting into digital, but are not sure your operation is ready to make the transition? A retrofit solution could be right for you.
Memjet’s inkjet technology powers retrofit solutions that are bringing new life to legacy printing presses. Our patented inkjet technology is being used in retrofit printing solutions that have been developed by OEM partners like Colordyne Technologies. These retrofit solutions enable label printers to leverage their existing flexo press to capture the advantages of inkjet printing and produce high-quality, short run jobs that meet the demands of their clients.
Bill Brunone, general manager, production press division at Memjet, notes, “Digital printing holds great promise for today’s label printers. But adopting a digital press is an expensive proposition, one that requires the printer to transform their operations. That’s why more and more narrow web printers are turning to retrofit solutions. These solutions allow the printer to upgrade their analog production press with a color inkjet module, giving them the best of both worlds: a way to take advantage of the opportunities color inkjet printing offers, without the obstacles that can come with purchasing a stand-alone digital press.”
The Retrofit Solution
A retrofit is a digital print module that gets integrated onto a third party piece of printing or converting equipment. For example, Memjet partner Colordyne has developed the 3600 Series Retrofit digital printing platform. This print production solution gives label converters a way to add full color digital inkjet printing to their flexographic press, while making use of their existing tooling inventory.
With its quick set up and fast job change capability, a retrofit powered by Memjet technology enables faster job production at a low equipment cost. Moreover, the printer has more capacity to produce profitable long-run flexo work, while short run work can be produced digitally to generate more profit.
