Following the delivery last October of a new d-Flex roll to roll system from IIJ’s long term partner Focus Label Machinery Ltd, IIJ has begun demonstrating the capabilities of their inkjet modules.
This year IIJ has already used the system in extended print quality reliability trials for a security printing customer and a high-volume packaging company. The trials included printing 600dpi variable data, a non-stop 2000 metre run at 130metres/minute print speed, and 360dpi variable data at 200m/min with low migration ink.
Over the next few weeks there will be trials and demonstrations of high-quality colour labels, flexible packaging, packaging foil, premium carton, and security printing. This shows the versatility of both the IIJ Print Engines and the Focus Label Machinery system.
IIJ’s MD John Corrall commented “the Focus base performed very well during the trials. One of the medias being printed was a very thin film so we were very pleased that the base handled the media without complaint. Tracking and tension control were good, and the customer was pleased with the print quality.”
