Memjet and Coaso unveil new iCueLabel press

 iCueLabel 420 developed by Coast based on Memjet's DuraFlex technology

Memjet and Coaso have developed an iCueLabel label press using Memet’s DuraFlex technology. The printer offers 1600 dpi print quality and speeds up to 46m/min.

Released in September, DuraFlex is a modular single-pass print technology that combines speed, simplicity and affordability as well as enhanced durability, A4 and A3-plus widths in a four-color printhead, a high-speed data path and modules that control all functions. These features gave Coaso the resources to create affordable presses with quality and speed previously not available in these types of printers.

‘Our iCueLabel press is an example of what an OEM can accomplish with DuraFlex technology,’ said Frank Xu, general manager of Coaso. ‘In less than three months, we were able to develop a new breed of label press that is a viable performance alternative to more expensive toner or other inkjet-powered printers. Converters can use the iCueLabel to produce high-quality labels the market demands, including food-safe and high-security labels, in a fast, affordable way.’

The iCueLabel 420 offers 1600 dpi print quality and print speed up to 46m/min in production mode and 27m/min in high-quality mode. 

‘Our goal with designing DuraFlex was to create a simple yet robust technology that could give OEM partners the resources to create printing solutions that are powerful but also affordable,’ said Bent Serritslev, senior vice president, business development, APAC at Memjet. ‘It is gratifying to see how Coaso has used DuraFlex’s compact, modular design, category-leading speed, and 1600-dpi quality to develop this new label printer. We look forward to seeing the success of this partnership at SWOP and in months ahead.’ 

Coaso and Memjet will debut the new label press at the Shanghai World of Packaging Conference (SWOP) and the upcoming Labelexpo Asia event in Shanghai.
