Press release from the issuing company

Schaumburg, IL -  New alternatives have never been as important to the printing industry as they are today, and INX International Ink Co. (booth #6451) will offer several equipment and new ink options this year at Labelexpo Americas 2010.  Attendees will find choices for short run printing and UV inks at the show, which runs from September 14-16 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois near Chicago.

The NW100 narrow web printer provides high-speed, high quality narrow web inkjet printing.  Ideal for short-run narrow web labels, it has the ability to deliver brilliant, full-color UV LED-cure single-pass output at throughput speeds up to 80' per minute.  The NW100 can run material widths of 6.3 inches and has a maximum print imaging width of 5.5 inches.

Designed by INX Digital systems integration specialists, this printer uses patented Xaar 1001 piezoelectric printhead technology with Summit UV's patented and unique Black Diamond 465-8W series LED lights.  The advanced piezo drop-on-demand, 8-level grayscale technology with patented Xaar Through-Flow Technology, offers exceptionally consistent, continuous tone output.  The specially designed INX Digital EVOLVE brand line of UV inks are a perfect choice for the powerful, highly focused Summit LED short-wavelength UV-light technology to produce vivid color and one-pass through-cure.

INX will showcase two high quality inks at the show.  INXScreen RS Silicone free White is a premium UV/Energy Curable ink and is specially formulated for the use of combination printing, in conjunction with UV Flexo and UV Letterpress systems.  It features outstanding product resistance in tandem with superior high speed printing, and excellent adhesion on a wide variety of substrates including prime label, PE, PP, OPP and Mylar films, among others.

INXFlex ITX free process inks are a best-in-class UV flexographic product.  It offers minimal plate swell in regards to all plate making technologies including digital and fast curing photopolymers.  Designed for most tag & label, pressure sensitive, and shrink and in-mold label applications, these inks are environmentally friendly; they are V-Pyrol, Benzophenone and ITX free. They also provide superior gloss and transparency, and offer good adhesion to a wide range of substrates including prime label, metalized polyesters and films such as PE, PP, OPP and Mylar.
