At Labelexpo last week in Brussels, EFI debuted its new addition to the Jetrion line, the 4950LX LED printer, as well as new finishing modules for the 4900 line.
The Jetrion 4950LX LED printer has a resolution of 720 x 720 dpi and uses what EFI claims to be first in its class LED curing technology to produce print on thin and traditionally difficult stocks. A side benefit is longer-lasting lamp life (5,000 hours versus 1,000 hours on mercy arc lamps) and lower energy usage.
The new finishing modules for the 4900 family displayed at Labelexpo included a varnish/lamination module, which extends the in-line finishing options available on the machine, and a new high-powered laser cutter, available in single-head (500W) or dual-head (1000W) configuration, for label producers working at widths of 330mm. Both work on either the Jetrion 4900-330 or the Jetrion 4950LX and both presses are driven by EFI’s Fiery digital front end.
