Grafitec Label Presses has announced the UK’s first EFI Jetrion 4900 is being installed at Colorscan Imaging Products, based in Burton upon Trent.
Keith Forster, director of Colorscan, said: ‘We produce point of sales and other printed products for the real ale brewing industry. We only operate digital equipment, and currently most printing is done on a Xerox IGEN which is both fast, and of a high quality. Unfortunately it does not have a white ink capability, and to date no Xerox printer does.
‘The EFI Jetrion white has excellent opacity whilst the CMYK inks retain their translucent appearance on metalized substrates, allowing for effects not available on toner-based printers.’
The press can support a wide variety of substrates and incorporates a powerful dual laser auto die-cutting system and two-spindle semi-automatic turret rewind for finished rolls, as well as integrated corona treater for filmic substrates. A continuous queue label production workflow enables zero waste changeovers.
