San Diego-based inkjet technology company Memjet announces that France-based MGI Digital Technology, a manufacturer of digital printing presses and finishing solutions, has integrated Memjet’s DuraLink printing technology into its new AlphaJET B1 inkjet printing and embellishment press. According to Memjet, this is the first 40-plus-inch sheet-fed press to integrate the DuraLink inkjet printheads, ink and modules. It is also the first five-color digital printing system to offer decorative special effects such as 2D/3D UV dimensional textures and variable embossed foil.
“The launch of the AlphaJET comes at a time when print markets are experiencing a high demand for inline digital printing, embellishment and finishing,” says Eric Owen, general manager at Memjet. “To capture that opportunity, MGI chose the modular nature of DuraLink-its extremely fast speeds, 1600 by 1600 resolution and affordable cost-to develop an industry-changing solution. This is a valuable partnership for MGI, Memjet and the print market as a whole.”
The AlphaJET consolidates the functionality of traditionally separate, disconnected operational workflows such as primer coating, printing and embellishment and converting them into a single, combined “All-in-One” industrial print factory for complete job management, Memjet says.
“The partnership with MGI is the latest in a series of agreements Memjet has announced in recent months,” says Owen. “We look forward to sharing more DuraLink developments throughout 2019.”
