Colordyne Technologies (CDT) has sold its 1600 Series and 1800 Series benchtop business to Afinia Label, a provider of specialty printing products. The sale signals Colordyne's shift towards high-volume digital printing applications. 

Since its inception in 2010, Colordyne Technologies has specialized in engineering and manufacturing high-quality inkjet engines and printers. With a commitment to delivering high-quality inkjet technology and support, Colordyne has installed over 600 inkjet engines and benchtop systems globally. The company's mission is to help printers successfully integrate inkjet into their business and onto their existing equipment. Colordyne has been developing innovative inkjet products, particularly for the narrow web label, packaging and commercial print industry. 

Established in 2009, Afinia Label offers industrial high-speed label printing and finishing products. With a foundation in technical expertise dating back to its parent company Microboards Technology's start in 1989, Afinia has served over 55 countries, providing dependable and cost-effective printing equipment.  

The sale of Colordyne's 1600 Series and 1800 Series benchtop business comes as Colordyne shifts its focus towards higher volume production digital printing applications. Afinia will assume responsibility for consumables, spare parts, for all existing Colordyne 1600 Series and 1800 Series customers. This acquisition allows Afinia to expand its installation base and enhance its service offerings. 

Taylor Buckthorpe, director sales and marketing, Colordyne Technologies, said: ‘Afinia is a leader in the benchtop market, our customers will be in great hands with Afinia’s world-class team and will have access to a larger portfolio of finishing solutions. This acquisition allows Colordyne to remain focused on pushing inkjet technology into higher volume, longer run applications.’
