PACK EXPO, Chicago (PRWEB) October 29, 2010
MainStream LLC will launch a Memjet-powered barcode label printer with color on-demand at the PACK EXPO trade show Sunday, October 31, bringing high speed and low running costs to the barcode and labels packaging market.
The MainStream barcode color label printer, the 12 Pacc, will be demonstrated in the booths of two MainStream distributors: Fox IV Technologies (booth 3954) and Pylor Technologies (booth 3053).
"You can now print labels with barcodes and high-quality color, when you need them, and only in the amounts you need, in a single step," said Fred Noll, president of MainStream. "This eliminates two-week wait times for traditional pre-printed labels, the inefficiencies associated with storage and handling, and the waste of unused pre-prints.
"Our depth of experience in the industry with our incorporation of Memjet's breakthrough printing technology allows us to reach a broad base of end users. Our distributors have many customers who will benefit from the ability to have near-line, cost-effective, on-demand color printing," he added.
"MainStream is an excellent fit to help introduce Memjet technology to the label industry," said Sean Marske, president of Memjet Labels, based in San Diego, California. "MainStream is one of our strategic partners in North America for the color-intensive label and tag marketplace. Finally, product manufacturers and logistic service providers can cost-effectively produce barcode color labels in-house, when and where they need them, and in the exact quantities needed."
The MainStream 12 Pacc is a roll or fanfold-fed label printer powered by Memjet technology and components, including the Memjet 8.77-inch-wide printhead, which delivers 1,600 dpi native print resolution in process color (CMYK). The product is named 12 Pacc because it can print any code and color at 12 inches per second (standard print mode). The premium-quality mode prints at 6 inches per second. A standard 8-inch O.D roll can be printed in just 8 minutes and 20 seconds.
Memjet technology enables high-quality, fast, affordable color printing. The compact printhead contains 70,400 nozzles from which all colors are printed. The registration between colors is highly accurate. Each ink color is delivered via large (250ml), long-lasting, snap-in ink cartridges.
Jeff Pace, president of Accent Motion Industries (formerly Pylor Industries), an inkjet packaging distributor, said that "the MainStream 12 Pacc introduces a new level of on-site color label printing that is suited for countless applications, because it provides the speed and running costs that customers will accept. We can upgrade our existing customer base from our legacy equipment and, most importantly, we have a product that allows us to significantly expand our customer base."
