IIJ targets exhibition for world launch of XYPrint 300.
The worldwide launch of Industrial Inkjet Ltd’s (IIJ) new XYPrint 300 system will be unveiled at Fespa in Cologne, Germany, from 18-22 May 2015.
Live printing will be carried out over the five days of the show on the inkjet specialists’ 83 square metre stand, U98 in Hall 6.
The new IIJ’s XYPrint 300 is being billed as a complete, high-accuracy inkjet system ideal for process development, print research, direct product decoration, material deposition/additive manufacturing and low-volume production.
Using Konica Minolta inkjet printheads for high accuracy, repeatability and reliability, the IIJ XYPrint 300 is designed to cover the widest possible range of process parameters. It offers fully flexible control of printhead setup, print parameters and ink drying / curing, combined with high speed, high accuracy motion.
With true single-pass and multi-pass print capability as standard, it comes with a simple syringe-based ink system for rapid change of ink type and minimal ink wastage.
New features include a granite bed to ensure highest accuracy and stability, a reinforced structure which minimises vibration or shock, scan speeds of 0-1.2m/sec minimum, electronics and software drive for up to eight printheads, mounting for up to 10 printheads in line, for example white, CMYK, spot colour, LED and varnish. There is also an improved ergonomic design, providing access into the enclosure, and all controls are mounted externally.
John Corrall, Managing Director of IIJ, a company that doubled its manufacturing base to cope with a 60 per cent sales rise last year, said: “This system, which has been a year in development on the back of the success of the XYPrint 200, is twice as fast and even more accurate and flexible. It will also have a huge impact in this specialist market.
“Target sectors will include ink developers, universities, media producers, research laboratories, and low volume product decoration as well as many others. We’ve received considerable interest already and show-goers to Fespa can look forward to live printing on to everyday consumer goods on our stand.”
IIJ has its headquarters at Cambridge, UK, with administration, R&D, engineering, manufacturing, service and sales operations. Sales offices are also based Germany, Italy and the USA where there’s also a technical support centre.
As a well respected industrial inkjet specialist, IIJ is also the official sales and technical support centre for Konica Minolta Inc. products outside of Asia.
It offers advice on any aspect of the use of inkjet technology in industrial applications. The company also provides complete solutions for the successful design and implementation of Konica Minolta’s industrial printheads.
