FOSTER CITY, CA | EFI has unveiled the new Jetrion 4900M UV digital inkjet printing system, combining the performance of EFI's existing family of Jetrion UV digital presses with the flexibiity of industrial inline web finishing, as well as the 4900M-330, which features a 13-in. print width for increased productivity.
"We believe that the 4900M's modular platform will position label converters to address head-on today's challenges while providing an upgradable platform for business growth as the label market continues to evolve from analog to digital," said Sean Skelly, VP and general manager. "The wider form factor at 13 inches is a direct response to customer feedback and market demand."
Until now, production of labels, whether flexo or digital, has required multiple production steps. The new Jetrion 4900M Series changes the game, with modular integration of finishing capabilities that result in the delivery of a finished product in a single operaiton, removing time and cost from the manufacturing process. This is especially critical for label converters who wish to remain competitive as both lot sizes and cycle times continue to diminish. The 4900 M Series' modular design means that additional capabilities can be added as they become available or are needed, thus future-proofing this investment.
The Jetrion 4900M-330 will be commercially available in the first quarter of 2013. An affordable upgrade path will be provided to the wider format Jetrion 4900M-330 for customers who purchase the currently available Jetrion 4900M with a print width of 8.3 in. (210 mm).
