Rapid-X Digital: New digital label presses for 2014

How the Rapid XL220 will look

AUSTRALIA The Australian developer of digital label printing systems using Memjet technology, will release an all-new label press in the first half of 2014, with more to follow.

Named the XL220 the 220 mm (8.66”) web width design will reflect an all-in-one approach, similar to that found in the production cut-sheet digital press market where data goes in and finished products come out.

The XL220 press will retain its Memjet printhead heritage but will look like a single unit rather than a modular three or four-piece ensemble. Touch-screen control will access all functions. Variations will include the XL220C with coater and XL350, a 350 mm (13.77”) web width version now under development.

A significant new development will be the option of an inline flexo coating station.
