New Solution develops Memjet corrugated printer

New Solution Engineering, which appears to be the Portuguese company formerly known as Mtex, has announced that its first flatbed digital corrugated printer, the NS Multi-LG, which was first shown at last month’s Fespa show, is now available.

New Solutions has built this Multi LG flatbed printer using Memjet printheads to print to cardboard, carton and corrugated sheets.

The main feature is its relatively low price as sales director Marco Apolinário explains: “Compared to other printers on the market, at a cost price of €92,800, the NS Multi LG offers an amazing value proposition to any company that has a need for the customisation of boxes and with the added bonus of opening up more profit-making opportunities such as personalisation and regionalisation of products and packaging.”

The low cost is because it uses Memjet’s standard wide format print module, which is made up of five of the Versapass single pass printheads stitched together to give a print width of 1066mm. This head produces 1600×1600 dpi resolution at 9mpm, or 1600×800 dpi at 18 mpm. The Memjet technology is based around thermal inkjet, meaning the heads are a consumable item, which also has to be factored into the cost of running this printer.

The Versapass heads use five colour channels for CMYKK. The inks themselves are Memjet’s own water-based dye inks, which should be adequate for printing to paper-based substrates such as corrugated card and board, pre-cut folding boxes and craft cartons.

Vitor Maia, marketing manager for New Solutions, comments: “To be able to print directly on to uncoated media is important and this printer will give consistent results in full colour when printing onto uncoated stock and also gives outstanding results on craft and corrugated board using text and one or two colours.” However, New Solutions notes that coated media will give better results.

It’s worth noting that Xante also produces a very similar machine, the Excelagraphix 4800, also based on the same Memjet wide format print module, and also aimed at printing short run boxes.

Meanwhile New Solutions also makes a Memjet-based label printer and continues to sell the Mtex textile printers.
