Colordyne Technologies has developed its second-generation 3600 Series AQ technology, which it will showcase at Labelexpo Americas 2018.
Partnering with Memjet, Colordyne will use DuraLink, Memjet's next-generation printing technology, to power its second-generation 3600 Series AQ engines. Currently, Colordyne is looking for additional sub OEM partners and beta sites for the second-generation engines. The first installations are targeted for the second half of 2019.
‘Colordyne designs and engineers print solutions to meet the specific needs of our customers,’ said Andy Matter, president of Colordyne. ‘Since 2011, our partnership with Memjet has enabled us to successfully deliver on that mission. The addition of this new technology builds on that success, giving us a water-based technology that is affordable, flexible and scalable. These features will enable the rapid development of customized printing solutions for our strategic partners around the globe.’
Colordyne is leveraging the modular design and scalability of the printhead technology to develop solutions across a wide range of market segments. The company plans to offer its second-generation 3600 Series AQ technology as a retrofit, a standalone solution and an engine integration kit. The kit allows Colordyne to offer development support and resources to other manufacturers who wish to jump-start their integration of digital inkjet printing.
The second-generation 3600 Series AQ technology combines 10 times longer printhead life, durable pigmented ink, print quality up to 1600 by 1585 dpi and a range of versatile printhead modules. Together, these features enable the rapid and cost-effective development of next-generation solutions in commercial, package and industrial printing markets and beyond.
‘Having Colordyne as one of our first DuraLink OEM partner makes sense for both of our organizations,’ said Eric Owen, general manager at Memjet. ‘The company's managers have a deep understanding of Memjet technology, giving them a strong advantage and enabling them to develop low cost, flexible solutions that can get to market faster. We look forward to seeing their future developments and continuing our mutual success as we reach new markets.’
