Mark Andy has launched Digital Plus Variable (DPV), a cost-effective and straightforward inkjet module that adds single-color variable data capability to any new or existing digital, flexo, or finishing machine without compromising speed.
With advanced printhead technology and a robust design, DPV is suitable for variable a broad range of industrial and commercial printing applications, such as labels, forms, direct mail, tickets, gaming, promotions, tags, and pharmaceutical packaging.
‘Digital Plus Variable is flexible, durable, and operator-friendly. The system utilizes the latest 30 and 40 kHz print module for high-speed data transfer and high-quality inkjet printheads that deliver 600 DPI cross-web print resolution and 300 to 600 DPI in process direction, with speeds up to 500 ft/min,’ said Scott Warhover, vice president of engineering at Mark Andy.
The monochrome digital print bar offers adjustable drop size and shaving to ensure barcode readability while internal heaters minimize the impact of external temperature changes. An integrated head cap and automated service mode reduce printhead maintenance, increasing pressroom efficiency.
‘The DPV is a straightforward press upgrade that is a benefit to any pressroom because it is an inexpensive, low-risk solution with high return. The total cost of production is nearly 90 percent less than the standard cartridge-based offerings in the market, and the system is also highly dependable, allowing converters to integrate fast variable data to their production for a fraction of the cost,’ concluded Warhover.
