Impika will offer its customers more flexibility with its iPrint eVolution platform, which combines the concept of scalability with durability. The product will be launched at drupa 2012.
Driven by customer needs and market orientations, the company is aware that today’s expectations may be different from those of tomorrow. It has therefore developed this unique iPrint eVolution platform to ensure that customer needs are always met, even as those needs evolve over time (print configurations, speeds and quality).
With a technological platform already acknowledged by the market, the iPrint eVolution is built on the basis of a print chassis designed to accommodate up to 4 print heads. The standard version of the machine prints with two print heads at a speed of 40 to 125m/min with resolutions of 1200 to 360 dpi. The printer’s output can be doubled with the addition of two print heads, producing at a speed ranging from 75m/min up to 250 m/min with a competitive print cost.
With five available print resolutions, the iPrint eVolution offers the largest range of print quality among industrial inkjet printers, from 360×600 dpi to 2400×1200 dpi, including a new and exclusive 600×600 dpi with four levels of greyscale. The iPrint eVolution platform meets and exceeds trade requirements for direct marketing, transpromo and transactional processing as well as for newspaper and book publishing.
The platform offers a high degree of modularity, accommodating continuous feed roll-to-roll or roll-to-sheet with one or two towers. Twin engines can be configured together in line set up (I), in U shape (U) or in L shape (L) as well as separately for even more flexibility.
Data workflow is managed through a custom designed IPDS controller offering a rich set of format options that can be updated according to expectations.
