Chinese OEM partners use Memjet’s DuraLink inkjet printing technology to create affordable
printers with the speed and quality needed to produce high-volumes of labels
SAN DIEGO, CA, USA — Oct. 18 — Memjet has formed partnerships with Shanghai UPG International Trading Co., Ltd (UP Group), and Liaoning Zheng Hong Basch (Basch). These leading manufacturers are the first in China to use Memjet’s DuraLink printing technology to develop high-volume label printing presses. Basch and the UP Group, along with Memjet executives, will be discussing how these breakthrough solutions produce labels that meet the demands of the fast-moving Chinese consumer market at All in Print China on Oct. 24-28.
“Five years ago, Memjet envisioned an additional inkjet technology that would bring our trademark quality, speed and affordability to high-volume print markets,” says Len Lauer, chief executive officer at Memjet. “With our DuraLink technology, we have realized this vision. This new technology combines a long-life printhead, durable pigment ink, 2.5-meter maximum print width and a range of versatile modules. Together, these features give partners a cost-effective way to develop next-generation solutions in labeling, commercial, packaging, and industrial printing markets and beyond.”
High-Quality, High-Speed Inkjet Printing Label Production Becomes a Reality
Two partners will be showing DuraLink solutions at All in Print China.
Liaoning Zheng Hong Basch Digital Technology
Located in Yingkou, Liaoning Zheng Hong Basch Digital Technology (Basch) is engaged in the development, production and marketing of CTP and digital inkjet printing technology. The company is using DuraLink to develop the Leopard DL-2200 Ink-Jet Printer.

Basch will also be showcasing its new color inkjet Minipress label printer Pantera® 3322C and the new Pantera® TB350 media coating machine for dye-based inkjet. Based on Memjet’s VersaPass technology, this inkjet and coating system allow users to print on almost any substrate.

Shanghai UPG International Trading Co., Ltd
Located in Shanghai, UP Group has developed the first DuraLink color label press in China: the DuMax/DiMax250 Digital Label Printer.
UP Group was founded in 2001 and has since become a leader in manufacturing and supplying printing, packaging, plastic, food processing, converting machinery and related consumables in China. Although its primary business is focused on China, it also exports to more than 80 countries.
The DuMax/DiMax250 Digital Label printer is an affordable and flexible solution that has a printing width of 222.8 mm and can print at speeds up to 203 meters per minute. The printer has a high resolution of up to 1600 x 1585 dpi, making it the ideal labeling solution for the field of fast-moving consumer goods that require high-quality printing and accurate flesh tones.
The DuMax/DiMax250 Digital Label Printer uses environmentally-friendly aqueous pigment ink. This ink has no volatile organic solvents. It is safer for people and for the environment.
