Schaumburg, IL – September 11, 2018 – INX International Ink Co. will exhibit an abundance of new and proven ink products and hardware in booth 121 at Labelexpo Americas, taking place September 25-27 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
From a new Electron Beam Low Migration ink solution and a preview of the NW340 UV Digital Label printer, to an overflow of various Tag & Label ink and coating solutions, eco-friendly INXhrc™ inks, and a small batch ink dispenser that ideally suits the tag and label market, the INX booth will have plenty of options for consideration.
“The Labelexpo crowd is always looking for a product with that something extra so they can separate themselves from the competition. I think it best describes the products we are exhibiting this year,” said Jim Lambert, INX International’s Vice President of Digital Sales – Ink and Hardware. “We have an ink solution for nearly every occasion and Prodigy™ EBGA, the new Low Migration ink we are introducing, was just named SGIA’s 2018 Product of the Year for its category. I’m also excited about previewing the NW340 printer at our hometown show.”
The single-pass NW340 Printer is a UV Digital Label Press that gives label converters, packaging, in-house and commercial printers the opportunity to seamlessly transition to digital inkjet technology. The complete solution includes high quality inks and expandable modules to help printers meet the increasing demand for high quality, short-run digital printing.
The NW340 represents third generation label technology that Lambert says is an important and natural progression.
“It seems like only yesterday when we previewed the NW140 printer at Labelexpo,” remarked Lambert about its 2010 pre-launch debut. “A few years later we followed with the NW210. Both of those printers offered resolutions of 360-by-360 dpi and produced labels at speeds up to 80 per minute. The main difference was the printing width of 140mm and later, 210mm.
“The NW340 is a whole different ballgame. We’ve elevated the resolution to 1200-by-600 or 1200-by-1200 dpi, improved the width range to 340mm, and have increased the speed up to 300 feet per minute to satisfy market demand. Printers want faster equipment and higher resolution so they can more favorably compete with offset presses. This machine does that and more.”
Prodigy EBGA is the new EB Low Migration solution from the popular line of industrial and packaging application inks. SGIA’s 2018 Product of the Year for Digital Inks - Industrial and Packaging -, the premium inkjet ink cures by electron beam using Uteco’s GAIA printer. It is the first inkjet machine offering electron beam technology, eliminating the need for photoinitiators.
EBGA inks provide strong adhesion to a range of traditional label material and film, with high chemical and scratch resistance. Available in CMYK, they can create custom spot color in addition to orange, green and violet.
A complete assortment of AquaTech™ water-based Tag & Label inks and coating solutions, including the new AquaTech ION-X series, will be on display. Known for their strong performance and excellent print stability, these inks are formulated to provide premium strength for today’s higher line anilox rolls and outstanding cure rates at high press speeds. Whether it is AquaTech or a solution for sheetfed or web offset, flexographic, UV hybrid, HUV and LED or electron beam printing, INX will have those inks and coatings at Labelexpo Americas.
INXhrc water-based inks have replaced over two million pounds annually of petro-chemically derived resins, waxes and additives. The eco-friendly, fast drying ink offers clean, renewable and sustainable ingredients that are free of allergens, nanomaterials, flurochemicals, fanal pigments, heavy metals, latex and PTFE. When used in tandem with INXPlus™ dispersions, INXhrc provides for the strongest finished inks available with excellent resolubility and transfer properties and other benefits.
The HMJ-200 Small Batch Ink Dispenser offers many terrific advantages, especially for the Tag & Label market. It provides a single point dispense into jugs with small openings, and a quick adjust scale base accommodates multiple dispense containers from jugs to pails. The HMJ-200 is also fast, dispensing four ingredients in a one-gallon jug in 90 seconds. Available for water-based or UV Curable inks, the small footprint machine has an automated valve cleaning system.
INX experts will be available in booth 121 to answer any questions about all of these products. Visit www.inxinternational for more information or to schedule a booth appointment.
