Printware (St. Paul, Minnesota), a leader in prepress and digital solutions, has unveiled its iJetColor Pro 1175P Envelope Press, Printware’s first collaboration with HP and the newest member of its iJetColor family of envelope presses. It incorporates HP’s FI-1000 printhead to deliver PageWide thermal inkjet technology that’s faster, wider, more durable and more economical. The iJetColor Pro 1175P is designed for high-volume print, packaging and direct mailing operations, allowing for a wider print width, durability with pigment-based ink, and high-speed production utilizing the HP FI-1000 printhead – all at “33% lower variable costs over other inkjet solutions,” said the OEM. The iJetColor Pro 1175P uses the HP FI-1000 printhead to deliver a wider print width of 11.7” to print full-bleed in both landscape and portrait orientation on #10 envelopes. In addition, it allows printing on a wide variety of media and sizes up to 2” thick. The HP FI-1000 printhead generates full-colour images using pigment-based durable ink that is fade, scratch and water-resistant with rich black, optical density comparable to offset inks, said Printware. The printhead itself is durable, with a long lifespan yielding millions of images. The iJetColor Pro 1175P, which features a robust feeder, alignment table and proprietary vacuum conveyor, can print up to 10,000 #10 envelopes per hour at speeds of 18 ips.
Designed for high-volume print and mailing operations, the iJetColor, iJetColorNXT, iJetColorPro, and iJetColor Pro 1175P “provide low variable costs per envelope compared to all toner solutions in the marketplace.” All iJetColor systems come with brand colour management tools, including industry-leading ColorBoost technology to optimize colour brightness at higher production speeds, and specialized workflow developed by Xitron, that are married to a comprehensive operator touchscreen and full training, support and supplies from Printware. A Brand Color Editing feature allows brand colours, PMS colours or spot colours to be specifically defined for CMYK reproduction. In addition, speed improvements have been made for variable data and addressing. Integrated workflows also drive optional Indicia and Mailing Permit imprinting that provides ultra-high-speed imprinting applications.
