Versatility and quality with low-migration inks and high-end imaging
EFI's highly productive Jetrion 4950lxe LED inkjet narrow-web digital label press helps customers create new opportunities with its expanded capabilities. Converters can extend their food-packaging applications into digital label production thanks to the press's new low-migration ink for non-food-contact surface production. The press also offers higher-end imaging, plus users can achieve increased durability and gloss level control using EFI Armor UVF and UVR coatings. This Jetrion press offers extended versatility as it includes media compatibility profiles for a broader range of label stocks, including Avery Dennison® substrates used for durable labels and wine applications. Optional in-line finishing equipment available from EFI make Jetrion one of the only digital press brands that enables users to take in blank substrate rolls on one end and receive complete, die-cut, slit and back-scored rolls at the other.
