iSys Label has launched a white toner for its line of short- to mid-run digital label printers.
The RIP plug-in for iSys Label software allows users to print both background white and spot color white – all in a single pass.
The ability to print using white toner opens a whole range of markets and potential applications for commercial printers and private brand owners, says the company, whose toner is suited to printing on dark or colored substrates, transparent films, and textured stocks.
Mark Hopkins, president of iSys Label, commented: ‘We’ve been looking forward to the release of white toner for a long time. Time and time again, our customers have asked for the availability of white toner and now we can deliver.’
Using single-pass technology, labels and packaging using white toner can now be printed on demand. Loading of the white toner is achieved by replacing the black toner and drum cartridges with the white cartridge combination. When users want to return to the four-color printing process, the white toner/drum combination can be replaced by the original black toner/drum and regular printing is resumed.
‘By having white toner, the market for short run digital labels greatly expands. We can now offer the Edge 850 and Apex 1290 as a print solution for the high-end cosmetics and beverage markets, as well as for print shops looking to run decals and stickers on clear films. The opacity of the white toner is exceptionally high and we believe the addition of this consumable is going to be a game changer for the digital printing market,’ said Randy Rickert, director of iSys Label.
