IIJ’s Pioneering Digital Label Modules – Re-Imagined for LabelExpo Europe 2019

News     Posted on

Since 2009 Industrial Inkjet Ltd has led the way providing affordable compact in line inkjet systems that can be added to a range of analogue printing equipment including flexo label presses. At LabelExpo Europe 2019 IIJ will show a complete digital label module, including 4 colour 600 dpi inkjet print engine (ColourPrint 371HiQ), press adaptor enabling connection to a flexo press and a high power UV LED system with variable cure delay.

This compact system can be fitted to many existing label presses often without the need to lose any flexo stations or to increase the footprint of the press. If fitted to a press with a service rail, it can also be positioned wherever it’s required in the print process with in-line finishing. Designed to fit onto a wide range of flexo presses, the IIJ Digital Label Modules have already been successfully integrated on to Nilpeter, Mark Andy, Omet, Gallus, and Comco presses, across numerous clients in Europe, USA, Asia and Australasia. This has given customers the flexibility of digital print and variable data with the in-line finishing and low cost analogue printing.

Over the last decade the IIJ print engine range has developed incredibly, alongside the Konica Minolta printhead offering. The latest units, using the impressive KM1800iSHC printheads, run at up to 200m/min for variable data or 100m/min for full colour 600 x 1200dpi images, making them capable of true in line integration.

Their stylish compact design encases the attention to detail and innovative use of Konica Minolta printheads That IIJ’s customers have come to expect from their products. This enables one the most compact printing footprints on the market, making integration possible even onto older models of press. This significantly increases the value proposition of the IIJ solution.

To make that integration easier, IIJ has now developed a press adaptor system suitable for a wide range of flexo press designs. Together with a high output LED system, this module can be fitted to the majority of presses without losing flexo stations, and can be rail mounted for maximum flexibility. Thus, adding digital functionality where and when it’s needed is simple and cost effective.

IIJ understands the value of adding new technology without the need to throw out the benefits of the established processes, achieving a true hybrid solution, and giving the customer the best of both worlds. IIJ’s digital label modules will be on display at LabelExpo Europe in September in hall 6, stand 6D11.
