EFI's Jetrion and Spartanics Partner to Deliver New Offering for Highly Flexible Short Run Narrow Web Printers

September 26, 2007

(Labelexpo 2007, Brussels, Belgium) Spartanics (www.spartanics.com) and EFI Jetrion (http://efi.com/products/production/jetrion/labels-packaging/index.asp ) today announced a partnership to offer complete short run job turnaround in just minutes for narrow web printers that combine EFI Jetrion's 4000 Series UV Inkjet Systems with Spartanics Finecut Laser Cutting System technology. The EFI Jetrion/Spartanics partnership delivers a relatively affordable means to create high quality labels with a super fast turnaround.

Dr. Kenneth Stack, Vice President and General Manager of Jetrion Industrial Inkjet Systems explains that Jetrion's new UV inkjet system is aimed at the short run market, and finds a natural complement in the tool-free digital die cutting systems made by Spartanics. Stack says, The Jetrion 4000 is the first narrow web digital press that delivers real economic value for run lengths up to 50,000 labels and beyond. Because the high-precision Spartanics Finecut Laser Cutting Systems avoid the time delay and costs of tool-based cutting technology, they enable users to fully realize the flexibility of Jetrion 4000 UV inkjet printers. Now, different size kiss-cut labels can be created on the fly, either by using the Spartanics system in-line with the Jetrion 4000 or off-line - with jobs proceeding from artwork to finished product within minutes.

The Spartanics Finecut Laser Cutting System provides unsurpassed registration precision and versatile handling of a wide range of substrates without the burn-throughs, pinholes and other defects created by systems with less capable laser control software. The Finecut's precise registration helps to cut costs by allowing the printer to use less ink. Kiss cuts, through cuts, engraving, serial numbering, scoring, scroll slitting, and perforating are readily handled by the Spartanics Finecut in a wide range of substrates including polycarbonates, vinyls, adhesives, thin flimsy materials, among others.

The Jetrion 4000 Series of UV inkjet printers offers narrow Web converters an affordable, full-color alternative to toner-based digital printers. Now, Web converters can harness all the advantages of lower running costs, superior production capabilities of UV inks, and flexibility of inkjet technology for applications such as labels, tags, forms and tickets.
