Imagine! Acquires New Hybrid Flexo Inkjet Press
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (July 12, 2018) – Imagine! Print Solutions (“Imagine!”), North America’s foremost visual communications company, is pleased to announce the addition of a new EF SYMJET hybrid flexo inkjet press to its expansive print fleet. The new press is equipped with the latest in-line technology, providing increased efficiency and a wide range of printing capabilities to support the growth of Imagine!’s Flexo division.
Manufactured by MPS Systems North America, the EF SYMJET combines an established EF flexo platform with an integrated Domino N610i seven-color digital UV inkjet unit to deliver vibrant, high-resolution production. In-line finishing capabilities and multiple flexo stations allow a variety of high-impact treatments and embellishments–including spot colors, foil tinting, laminates, over-varnishes, and cold foil–to be applied in a single pass. The SYMJET’s 340mm-wide web and quick-change internal die unit enable faster job changeovers (with virtually no make-ready) and increased overall efficiency, running more labels across at higher speeds while maintaining quality and consistency.
Regarding the new press, Bill Weernink, VP of Flexo Operations, commented, “The SYMJET’s state-of-the-art technology combines the best of Flexographic printing and converting, allowing us to support the ongoing market demand for high quality, low-mid volume, quick-turn printing solutions.”
John Hans, CEO of Imagine!, added, “Imagine! is excited to add the EF SYMJET’s impressive technology to our production fleet in support of our robust Flexo business. We are continuing to invest in industry-leading innovation and broaden our solutions capabilities to enhance speed-to-market efficiencies and drive positive consumer outcomes.”
