The PicoJet will be launched at Labelexpo
A new digital UV inkjet press, the PicoJet, will be launched at Labelexpo. The press uses Ricoh heads to achieve a resolution of 1200 x 1200dpi, printing in speeds up 75m/min in seven colours.
Richard Danon, Dantex group chairman, said, 'It was a natural progression for our company to consider expanding our range from PicoColour. We needed to go wider, faster and finer in resolution, and Ricoh became the partner of choice for us.'
The PicoJet includes static control, web cleaning and corona treatment for wide choice substrate printing capability in a 350mm width.
'Dantex has been delivering high-tech consumables, equipment and services to the label printing industry for 40 years. It was important for us to choose a partner who was able to understand the high-end quality needs of our industry,' said Mr Danon. 'The development of PicoJet required close technical collaboration with Ricoh, and thanks to their support we were able to meet the timetable to present PicoJet at this year's Labelexpo.'
