San Diego, CA – RDP digital and Norther Graphic Solution Inc. today announced the sale of an IPT digital print conversion system newly-introduced to the Canadian label printing market.
A JFlex870, engineered and manufactured by RDP digital – a division of RDP Marathon of Montreal — will be installed next month at The Label Factory, one of Canada’s leading trade only label providers.
Once operational the IPT digital system will turn the customer’s traditional press into a high-speed digital printing platform using Memjet inkjet technology.
“We’ve been keeping an eye on developing digital label processes for some time and when we saw the speed and resolution of the JFlex870, we knew for sure digital print had a place in our operation,” says Alex Medd, partner at The Label Factory.
Installation of the JFlex870 will increase overall capacity at The Label Factory and, for the first time allow the company to enter the very short run digital label market.
“We knew The Label Factory had a huge inventory of die tooling and beauty of the JFlex870 is that it will be mounted on the customer’s existing press so additional tooling costs will be minimarl,” says Jerry Wynia, president of Norther Graphic Solutions.
Norther Graphic Solutions, based in Kleinburg Ontario, supplies presses and converting equipment ot the narrow web printing markets. The sale of a JFlelx870 to The Label Factory, in theis particular case, has an additional spin-off benefit becase the company has agreed to play a key strategic role in product development.
“We are also pleased to announce that The Label Factory will allow demonstrations of the JFlex870 in action at its plant in Georgetown, Ontario,” says Eric Short, president of RDP Marathon.
