Memjet gets first DuraFlex OEM partner in India
Monotech Systems chooses Memjet’s DuraFlex technology to power its new hybrid label printing press.
Memjet announced that Monotech Systems Ltd has used Memjet’s DuraFlex technology to create the Jetsci ColorAqua hybrid label printing press. Based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu India, Monotech Systems is a developer of printing solutions.
This printing solution gives printers in India an economical way to produce high-quality labels and expand their product offerings. Monotech Systems will be showcasing the new printer at Pamex 2020, taking place January 6-9, 2020, at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai.
The Jetsci ColorAqua hybrid label press
Monotech's Jetsci ColorAqua hybrid label printing press uses Memjet’s DuraFlex’s aqueous pigment inks that are lightfast, water durable and scratch resistant.
This low-cost hybrid press enables printers to meet the demands of modern label production. In addition to its economical cost, the printer produces 1600 x 1600 dpi and runs at speeds of up to 45m/min. Together, these features enable label printers to expand into digital printing and offer services like CMYK full colour printing, microtext, variable data and security printing. The hybrid press can print on most general coated and uncoated label stock materials without primers and can also print on many films and substrates by applying primers. “DuraFlex technology has the features and functionality we needed to rapidly develop our latest printer,” said T.P. Jain, managing director, Monotech Systems Limited. “DuraFlex’s modularity, ease of integration, small footprint and affordable cost ensured we could quickly develop the ColorAqua, while the high print quality, speeds and productivity of DuraFlex will make the printer — and our customers — successful. We are very pleased to launch ColorAqua with Memjet DuraFlex technology and to provide customers with an entry-level digital printer that can scale up very quickly.” A Successful Partnership Released last September, Memjet’s DuraFlex technology is being adopted by OEM partners around the world to power a new breed of printing solutions that are powerful, yet affordable. “Working with a professional company such as Monotech has been a pleasure, and with their leadership in the Indian market for inkjet solutions, we could not have found a better partner to bring our pigmented inkjet technology to the market. We have great expectations for the Indian printing industry, not just limited to labels, and look forward to a long relationship with Monotech,” said Bent Serritslev, senior vice president, business development, APAC at Memjet.
